Ever imagine what New York City will look like 20 years from now? Well, as part of the upcoming Festival of Ideas for the New City , the Audi Urban Future Initiative  will contribute an exhibition exploring just that. An interactive model of Manhattan will be the focus of the exhibition structured around helping us image what the greatest city in the world will look like in 2030. Five up-and-coming architects and firms were chosen to contribute their award-winning ideas to the 50-foot long model of the city after their concepts were presented last year at the 2010 Audi Urban Future Award  in Venice, Italy.
The New York-based architects and firms include Leong Leong , Matter Practices , Abruzzo Bodziak Architects , labDORA , and Theverymany, LLC  and each will present their own future scenarios for New York City during the exhibition at the New Museum  in Manhattan. Their work will do more than just showcase what the future may look like, it will also help facilitate conversations around innovate ideas that focus on new concept of living and communicating, infrastructure solutions as well as new forms of mobility. The leading young firms will work individually as well as collectively during the course of the exhibition to develop concepts and visions inspired by the varying scenarios.
You can check out the Audi Urban Future: Project New York  exhibition starting Saturday May 7th from noon-7pm and Sunday May 8th and Monday May 9th from 11am – 7pm at the Openhouse Gallery  on 201 Mulberry Street in Manhattan.
