LMCC is pleased to present The Investigation, Constitution, and Formation of Flock House, an exhibition that examines the urgency and cyclicality of urban development and proposes building for a time when migration and adaptable forms of habitation are a necessary and standard part of city life. This exhibition poses the question: What will our built environment look like when we live in a city where boundaries are flexible?
The Investigation, Constitution, and Formation of Flock House probes into a social sculpture - an autonomous Micronation that will traverse New York City on a choreographed journey. Beginning by constructing the tools to make the materials, Flock House is created from abandoned vehicles dredged up from the New York waterways that have been formed into a recycled building material. It proposes experiments in compact, migratory living: interdependent, collaborative journeys.
