Tuesday January 22nd was an eventful day for CHPC! Not only did we celebrate the opening of our Making Room museum exhibition, in partnership with the Museum of the City of New York, with an unprecedented 1000 guests, Mayor Bloomberg also announced the winner of the City’s micro-studio pilot project at the exhibit and took a tour for himself! The press response was also overwhelming.
We are absolutely delighted that the Making Room exhibit is now open and will run until September 2013. We overheard hundreds of debates around the future of housing, regulatory reform, design and demographics at the opening party which made us very happy and invigorated for the year ahead.
Congratulations to Monadnock Construction, the Actor’s Fund and nArchitects for being selected to build the City’s adAPT pilot. A selection of submissions and the winning renderings will be on display at the Making Room exhibition.
We’re now launching a series of accompanying public programs at the museum, which begins on Thursday night, January 24th with ‘Living Small at Home and Abroad’. A panel of leading architects and designers from around the world to discuss the latest innovations in small home design.
