EXHIBIT 'N H D M / Nahyun Hwang + David Eugin Moon'
UMMA Stenn Gallery, 525 South State Street Ann Arbor, July 6–November 10, 2013
from the curator's statement -
"Today's emerging talents in architecture are redefining the profession with global practices that are digitally literate and operate at multiple scales of design. This liberation of scale has allowed architects to look at issues from interiors to urban planning in new and innovative ways. Nahyun Hwang and David Eugin Moon—principals of N H D M, a New York City based studio, are representative of this new wave of architectural thinking. From the 2011 award-winning Nam June Paik Library in Yongin, South Korea, to the repurposing of abandoned modern skyscrapers in their 2012 (No) Stop Marconi proposal for Rotterdam, N H D M is a studio that is constantly exploring scale, purpose, program, function, and history to create a new sustainable framework.Comprised of videos, models, and drawings, the exhibition considers a selection of projects from 2001 to the present that reflects Hwang and Moon’s global design sensibility."
