Benamor Duarte, Boroson, Wong and MA INTAR 2013 at National Academy, NY
The monumental technical textile intervention to the National Landmark Newport Congregational Church, the work produced by the Interior Architecture MA class of 2013 in a cross disciplinary studio co-taught by Eduardo Benamor-Duarte (Assistant Professor, Interior Architecture) and Liliane Wong (Professor, Interior Architecture) and Lee Boroson (Senior Critic, Sculpture), will be part of an exhibit at the National Academy in NY.
This work was a funded investigation into the concept of “soft interventions” in which adaptive reuse brings new meaning and new use to existing structures through non-invasive means, as mandated by the Standards of the US Department of the Interior. The project was uninstalled without a trace from Newport and reinstalled at the National Academy. The show, “Projects in Contemporary Art and Architecture: Between Vision and Function,” opens November 13.
