Portuguese architect and researcher Luísa Sol and her mentor, architect Tatiana Bilbao, spent a week in New York together as part of their work-stay.
There was a lot on their agenda. Sol presented her Forecast project Architectures of Inclusion and Exclusion to Bilbao’s students at the Yale School of Architecture in New Haven. Together with Forecast’s Artistic Director Freo Majer, they held a public event at the Goethe-Institut in New York City. Then there was a visit to Forest Hills, an early twentieth-century suburban neighborhood in New York City, and to Levittown, a prototypical postwar mass-produced suburb on nearby Long Island—both are exemplary to the concept Sol is exploring in her work.
