Arts For Living
|Kim Forster Ed.
Common Room and Kim Förster present ‘Arts for Living’, which examines the Abrons Arts Center, a community art facility in New York City’s Lower East Side, as a case study for an architecture designed to address issues of public space and community life. Built during the fiscal crisis in the 1970s, it was designed by the architecture firm of Prentice & Chan, Ohlhausen as a cultural institution with new educational facilities intended to enable, foster, and serve the everyday activities of the local low-income population. Designed by Geoff Han, it includes essays by Alan Moore and Kim Förster, an interview with architect and founding partner Lo-Yi Chan, and photographs by Jason Fulford.
