The Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) Gallery is pleased to present If Not Now, When?, a new exhibition by Eric Owen Moss Architects. The exhibition is the first by Eric Owen Moss Architects at the school and is on view from May 29 through September 13.
An aluminum structure hangs from the gallery ceiling and is wrapped variously with serpentining aluminum ribbons. Below, cheap chairs are arranged in rows throughout the gallery, leaving only the area beneath the hanging structure open.
“This exhibition re-examines the content of two projects Fabrications, and Glass Tower at La Cienega and Jefferson Boulevards in Los Angeles, currently under construction,” said Moss. “If Not Now, When? is a continued discussion of the foibles of the grid (or any other allegiance) as a governing conceptual premise in architecture.”
The installation is fabricated by SCI-Arc instructor Tom Farrage, Farrage & Co., and engineered by Matthew Melnyk, Buro Happold, under the supervision of Eric Owen Moss Architects.
