Goldstein Museum of Design Presents small architecture BIG LANDSCAPES

The Goldstein Museum of Design presents small architecture, BIG LANDSCAPES on view through March 6, 2011 at HGA Gallery, Rapson Hall, Minneapolis Campus.

One billion leftover people—typically called squatters or self-builders or homeless (it’s a big category)–claim leftover spaces in cities and live in unauthorized dwellings made of scavenged, leftover materials. Each of the works in this show is a beginning point for rethinking our attitudes about who and what we typically see as having no value while suggesting that our leftover human beings, building materials, and spaces can be seen–must be seen–as someone or something with potential.

Curated by Wes Janz, Professor of Architecture at Ball State University and founder of onesmallproject.org
