Phenomenology of Space
June 1 through October 31
Phenomenology of Space, curated by Ceren Bingol, explores a multi-disciplinary discourse between professional and student creatives, and the public, across four months of programming.

As part of an advanced concepts seminar taught by Ceren Bingol, 10 architecture students, Juan Cardona, Claudia D’Auria, Yoonsang Jo, Jisoo Kim, Jihoon Park, Karim Sabry, Jeremy Son, Maren Speyer, Tracy Tan and Brandy Vazquez, explored the intersection of poetics and architecture through a series of full scale installations and moveable objects inside the house. The projects reimagine and activate the physical, constructed space and perceived emotional or metaphorical space. Seth Carnes and Simona Blat were guest lecturers to the class.

Furthering the collaborative discourse and artistic production, a series of residencies and exhibitions featuring artists Rebecca Ripple, Ashley Ferlito and Mauricio Higuera, designer Sunny Kim, poet Anna McDonald and architectural critic and film producer Nina Rappaport create spatial and three-dimensional works that explore a range of poetic responses to the society, culture, ecology, light, shape and materiality of the architecture, urbanism, nature and habitants of Governors Island as well as of New York City and beyond.
