UrbanoActivo in Governors Island!
Spontaneous Interventions: Design Actions for the Common Good—the official U.S. presentation at the 13th International Architecture Exhibition at the Venice Biennale (2012)—makes its first New York appearance on Governors Island, New York City’s newest public park. Recently decommissioned as a military base, the island is home to hundreds of historic buildings and over 30 acres of public space.Spontaneous Interventions (S.I.) joins dozens of organizations, including Figment, the NY Public Library, LMCC, and more, that are bringing exhibitions, events, installations, and activities to the island’s audience, which last summer topped 400,000. (NOTE: The opening date has been delayed until June 6.) http://www.spontaneousinterventions.org/
