Water Works is the first retrospective exhibition of the New York-based architectural practice WORKac. The exhibition features work from the past seventeen years, using the theme of water to illuminate new encounters between the aqueous, the architectural, and the urban. Projects range from the re-imagining of a sink to the design of a theoretical city.
The exhibition builds on the long and varied history of water infrastructure as it has defined the organization of society and the evolution of architecture. As water continues to reshape the built environment, Water Works extends an invitation to consider architecture as more than its technical performance, to re-read its relationship to the world across scale, culture, and context.
