Abstract

In Our Time: A Year of Architecture in a Day, a convening at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, devoted to presenting the most exciting, important, and creative contemporary architectural and design projects and ideas. In planning this event, we defined the scope to projects completed in the past year (2015- 2016) and, at the same time, expanded the definition of architectural practice to encompass a cross-section of design , from buildings and books to exhibitions, cinema, and photography. Speakers address topics with a global reach, reflecting the beautiful, challenging, and complicated world in which we live. Their topics are as diverse as the design of the human species, mircohousing in New York, refugee camps in Gao, Mali, the rural movement in China, cultural projects in Santiago, Chile, and buildings under construction here in New York.

During this conference Wylie, as part of a new acquisition by the MET of his Maze Prison photographs for their collection, gave a keynote and panel discussion on his research exploring how the fabric and physical structure of the Maze prison is utilized as a form of control, and examines how the use of modern architecture, and economically efficient materials manifest in enabling the construction, and deconstruction, of such a military installation in extremely effective ways. Thus, his research asks us to consider the role of preservation, and memory, of historical sites increasingly designed not to endure
