This event has ended.

Rem Koolhaas's watercolor "Plan of Dreamland" (1977), a recent acquisition, is the point of departure for this presentation of selections from the Architecture and Design collection. "Dreamland: Architectural Experiments since the 1970s" is an exhibition of works that explores the ways in which the singular landscape of New York has inspired architects with visions of utopia. The city has served as a model for architectural projections and reflections, and also as a metaphor for the complex relationship between the limitations of reality and the infinite possibilities of architectural thought. The exhibition begins with projects for New York, then extends its focus to other locations. Dreamland is organized by Andres Lepik, Curator, with Christian Larsen, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Architecture and Design.
