If you build it

The 5 Borough Studio is among the first-ever Institute for Public Architecture Fellows. In residence this summer in Harlem as part of No Longer Empty’s “If You Build It” exhibition, the Fellows will develop four innovative research and design proposals for public and affordable housing in New York. The residency, exhibition, and public programs continue the IPA “Total Reset” series on housing. As part of the residency, the studio will investigate the relationship between “housing” and “home” and “what makes New York City a home?”. We will do this through a series of postcards from home, drawn and written collaboratively with a wide variety of New Yorkers.

The exhibition, curated by No Longer Empty in partnership with Broadway Housing Communities will be installed in BHCs newest building, an affordable housing development, designed by architect David Adjaye in Sugar Hill in Harlem. Exhibits will occupy the apartments of the almost complete building prior to its residents moving in.

Come to the opening on June 25th, 7-9pm at 155th Street & St Nicholas Avenue
