This lively exhibition takes its inspiration from British architectural historian Reyner Banham’s 1971 treatise Los Angeles: The Architecture of Four Ecologies, a tribute to LA as a “mobile city.” San Diego: The Architecture of Four Ecologies similarly pays homage to San Diego as a city of change and possibility, with a focus on the car as the current and predominant means to access and experience its own ecologies: Beaches, Freeways, Sub/urban and Border. The project is organized around these terrains, providing a gateway to engender dialogue about how we navigate and engage these environments. Works of art in various media illuminate San Diego’s evolving narrative about the relationship between the automobile, architecture, and landscape.
