The Arthur Ross Architecture Gallery at Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (Columbia GSAPP) presents No. 9, an exhibition curated and designed by Frida Escobedo, principal of Frida Escobedo Taller de Arquitectura in Mexico City. No. 9 is Escobedo’s first solo show in the United States. Through archival research and a new sculptural installation, Escobedo explores the history of La Ruta de la Amistad (“Route of Friendship”) in Mexico City, a monumental public sculpture project that was realized as part of the cultural program for the 1968 Olympics.
No. 9 is on view at the Arthur Ross Architecture Gallery in Buell Hall, Columbia University, from October 20, 2017 through January 19, 2018.
