Uneven Growth: Tactical Urbanisms for Expanding Megacities
November 22, 2014–May 10, 2015
This futuristic exhibition is based on the premise that in the next two decades the world’s population will reach an alarming eight billion people, of which two-thirds will live in cities, most of which will be underdeveloped and badly planned. In an attempt to circumvent the inevitable, MOMA brings together six teams of researchers and architects to develop fresh solutions for six of the world’s biggest metropolises: Hong Kong, Istanbul, Lagos, Mumbai, New York, and Rio de Janeiro. The imaginative architectural possibilities address public space, housing, mobility, spatial justice, environmental conditions, and other major urban issues. The exhibition takes over the Museum’s third floor Architecture and Design Galleries.
