This exhibition is a global overview of ways in which the existing infrastructure of cities around the world is being redesigned, repurposed, and reimagined to serve alternate and expanded functions for urban dwellers and visitors. Reprogramming the City celebrates more than 20 examples of imaginative reuse and repurposing of urban infrastructure, from physical objects to the city’s most functional systems and surfaces. Cities represented include London, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Hong Kong, Los Angeles and Boston.
Curated and designed by renowned urban design director Scott Burnham, Reprogramming the City reveals the city as a creative platform for new approaches to urban design.
The exhibition, which spans an array of disciplines including architecture, design, engineering, and urban planning, is a media-rich global overview of this new spirit of resourcefulness in urban design featuring numerous installations, videos, photographs, renderings, and models.
