New City | Greg Lynn
Installation at the MoMA. Collaboration between Greg Lynn FORM and Imaginery Forces.
Peter Frankfurt, Greg Lynn, Alex McDowell and Imaginary Forces collaborated to bring New City to MoMA’s Design and the Elastic Mind exhibition. New City featured an architecturally-scaled immersive media environment that served as the trailer to the concept of a living virtual world that is parallel and simultaneous to ours.
A facetted cave structure with twelve rear-projections told the story of New City – sometimes as multiple, synchronized video narratives, and sometimes as a continuous canvas.
The New York Times called Design and the Elastic Mind “the most uplifting show MoMA’s architecture and design department has presented since the museum reopened in 2004. Thanks to its imaginative breadth, we can begin to dream again.”
