Spanning over a decade of practice, this selection of work by architect Marshall Brown reimagines the future by revisiting the legacy of modern architecture. Driving his diverse conceptual frameworks, Brown’s work moves between the various scales of  domestic, institutional, and civic architecture to embody new relationships between the one and the many. Through his use of collage as an exploratory design method, Brown’s investment in the material history of architecture serves as a resource. The organization of the exhibition reflects this methodology through three reoccurant themes that weave throughout Brown’s work: “Recurrent Form,” which reconfigures formal categories, “Visionary Strategy,” a challenge of architectural mindsets; and “Emergent Order,” a consideration of complex phenomena. Featured projects include Dequindre Civic Academy, a monumental proposal for a charter school in Detroit comprised of reconfigured elements drawn from modernist megastructures; Holy City, a historically charged highway interchange in Chicago reimagined as a future eutopia; and Smooth Growth Plan for Washington Park, a project that embraces strategic responses for transformation through the consideration of abandoned properties and informal pedestrian movement.

The exhibition is curated by Karen Kice and designed by IN-FO.CO. Special thanks to SoA Dean Monica Ponce de Leon, Kira McDonald, Grey Wartinger, Olga Zakharova, and the SoA Staff.
