Henry Urbach Architecture

Henry Urbach Architecture

Henry Urbach Architecture was founded by the architecture and design scholar, curator, and educator Henry Urban in New York City in 1997. Based in Chelsea, the gallery focused on showcasing contemporary art and forms of experimental architecture. During its active years, Henry Urbach Architecture produced over fifty-five exhibitions, including such collaborative efforts as LOT-EK’s Mixer, Freecell Architecture’s MoistSCAPE, and R&Sie’s Mosquitto Bottleneck, and worked with influential figures in the world of architecture like François Roche, Lebbeus Woods, and Jürgen Mayer H.. The gallery’s ethos was informed by its founder’s ideas that centered on the audience’s perception of space and questioned one’s modes of seeing, as well as the relationship between the body and the buildings. The gallery was closed in 2005, following Henry Urbach’s departure from New York City to become Curator of Architecture and Design at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
