New York neighborhoods rarely stand still. This flux contributes to the city’s vitality but is largely driven by developers with little consideration for the overall vigor of public space. We can change this dynamic by generating programs responding to social and physical neighborhood character. Local Previews, a form of architectural graffiti, captures the imagination of residents and passersby. It challenge everyone to question the impending changes. An empty construction site begs us to imagine the potential of what could be. Through posters adhered to these construction fences, Local Previews, a form of architectural graffiti, suggests big buildings in small shells, with unlikely pairings that take advantage of limited spaces and serve particular needs.
