“Since October 2011, a model of a walled compound has been on permanent display in the lobby of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) in Springfield, Virginia.

“Chicagoisms”

"Building on the premise of the book, the exhibition revisits the characteristics, attitudes, and mentalities that made Chicago and proposes five principles of architectural action and urban engagement that we call Chicagoisms: Vision Shapes History, Optimism Trumps Planning, Ambition Overcomes Nature, Technology Makes Spectacle, and Crisis Provokes Innovation. Mined from the history of the city, the Chicagoisms are also deployed as springboards for new experiments. Nine teams of co-conspirators – Bureau Spectacular, DOGMA, MVRDV, ORG, PORT, Sam Jacob Studio, Sean Lally/Weathers, UrbanLab, and WW – have conceived visions inspired by the city that project as models from an array of historical imagery, and together these elements construct a panorama of alternative urban worlds. By exploring Chicago’s constructive history and offering views of possible futures, the exhibition calls for a renewed boldness to engage the contemporary city."/// On view at the Art Institute of Chicago by Alexander Eisenschmidt and collaborators Jonathan Mekinda and Matt Wizinsky.

Se dan la vuelta pero… No hay más abrigos y ya no hay casa.”Raoul Vaneigem, The Revolution of Everyday Life.Citado en el libro La Pesadilla de la Participación. Markus Miessen, dpr-barcelona [2014]
