Dismantle the utilitarian walls of cardboard in both the conceptual and physical sense in this hands-on exhibition.

Cardboard, an abundantly discarded resource with limitless upcycling possibilities, is a multifaceted material; its utility changes with the user’s age, profession, environment, and area of expertise. We have all, at some point, invented a game around cardboard, used it to move, or employed it as a surface for mark-making. In many developing nations, inspiring and resourceful architecture is built from it. Cardboard was used to make city models before the advent of computers; cardboard stores objects we haven’t seen in years but can’t quite seem to discard. Cardboard can be molded and painted to imitate many different kinds of materials, and its availability gives us the freedom to be playful and creative.

Reimagine the evolving needs of the urbanite through cardboard’s adaptable forms.
