Shelter: An Exploration of Temporary and Alternative Dwellings

From tiny houses to temporary emergency shelters, explore how our conception of home is changing. This special exhibit will feature a variety of practical, real-life solutions for housing that are designed to be quick, temporary and portable.

Sean Anderson, associate curator of architecture and design at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City, will discuss issues surrounding designing shelter for displaced populations and talk about some of the groundbreaking initiatives by designers to improve living situations faced by refugees.

The talk will take place alongside exciting new work by Rachel Hayes and just ahead of an installation piece by Patrick Dougherty. There will also be a Red Cross emergency shelter tent and a tiny house set up outside the gallery where visitors can explore some of these alternative shelters in a more tactile way.
