PIN–UP is happy to announce the second episode of Built Ecologies: Architecture and Environment, a video series from MoMA’s Emilio Ambasz Institute for the Joint Study of the Built and the Natural Environment. Episode 2, directed by Michael Cukr and produced by PIN–UP, features Buffalo-based architect Joyce Hwang. For the last decade, Hwang has been on the research frontier of interspecies architecture, creating architecture for bats and birds as much as other human and non-human species.
Initiated by Ambasz Institute director Carson Chan, the Built Ecologies series features prominent architects and thinkers doing innovative work across environmental topics. In each episode, these figures are invited to define the terms “architecture” and “environment,” producing a through-line between videos that otherwise capture a wide variety of practices and backgrounds.
