Architecture and Blackness in America

42,99  inkl. MwSt., zzgl. Versand

Reconstructions: Architecture and Blackness in America is an urgent call for architects to accept the challenge of reconceiving and reconstructing our built environment rather than continue giving shape to buildings, more

infrastructure, and urban plans that have, for generations, embodied and sustained anti-Black racism in the United States. The architects, designers, artists, and writers who were invited to contribute to this book—and to the exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art for which it serves as a “field guide”—reimagine the legacies of race-based dispossession in ten American cities (Atlanta; Brooklyn, New York; Kinloch, Missouri; Los Angeles; Miami; Nashville; New Orleans; Oakland; Pittsburgh; and Syracuse) and celebrate the ways individuals and communities across the country have mobilized Black cultural spaces, forms, and practices as sites of imagination, liberation, resistance, care, and refusal. A broad range of essays by the curators and prominent scholars from diverse fields, as well as a portfolio of new photographs by the artist David Hartt, complement this volume’s richly illustrated presentations of the architectural projects at the heart of MoMA’s groundbreaking exhibition.
