Q-CITY

Landscapes of Quarantine is an eight-week, intensive, independent design studio dedicated to the creation of original and thought-provoking projects that explore the spatial implications of quarantine, concluding in a group exhibition at the Storefront for Art and Architecture.

Q-CITY is an investigation into the possibility of creating quarantine spaces that permit self moderated interaction in lieu of the imposed isolationist wards of the past. Q-CITY makes quarantine a physically transparent system. It is an investigation and experiment into human tendencies, as well as an architectural imagination of the city as inhabited simultaneously by the quarantined and the healthy.
