Exhibition and Screening Next Week

Next Thursday, December 13, the Urban Design students from the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation at Columbia University will present a pop-up exhibition and screening called The Space Between Cities: Redefining Urbanization in the Hudson Valley. The students will be sharing printed work and eleven short videos that explore a range of topics--from the challenges of agriculture and the distribution of fresh produce, through the relationship between a small city like Hudson and its suburban and rural surroundings, to scenarios for the future of Hudson's waterfront. The invitation to the event explains:
It is the goal of our studio, and of the teaching of the Urban Design program, to create the conditions for collaboration and communication among varied stakeholders. The projects in this exhibition are not meant to be implemented as they are, but offer concepts and ideas for further discussion. Each of these proposals is a provocation made by students--from many backgrounds and from all over the world. Drawing from their diverse creative and analytical skills, the students' projects open new ways of approaching questions of urbanization, community investment, and long term change. The hope is that these projects can contribute to ongoing conversation, and that the work can promote more collaboration and communication between all those seeking equitable change in their community and across the Hudson Valley region.
The event takes place at Hudson Hall, 327 Warren Street, from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, December 13. Click here to indicate your intention to attend.
