GALLERY TALK + BOOK SIGNING
Vertical Urban Factory: East Asia, curated by architectural historian and critic Nina Rappaport, with curatorial assistant Jamie Chan, features architecture in the development of urban industrial regions in China, Korea, and Japan today. Co-sponsored by NYU's China House and Department of East Asian Studies, the show is an extension of Rappaportʼs Vertical Urban Factory project. As a timely look at globalized industrial spaces and production methods, the exhibition asks: can new factories and manufacturers present solutions that are economical, ecological, and socially sustainable for future East Asian cities?
Curator of the Exhibition, Nina Rappaport, will conduct a Gallery Talk and Book Signing of her newly published book “Vertical Urban Factory” (Actar Publishers, February 2016).
