During the upcoming Festival of Ideas for the New City, Audi will present a special exhibition exploring how New York City might look in the year 2030. The centerpiece of the exhibition will be a 50-foot long interactive model of Manhattan. Five up-and-coming architecture practices, including Leong Leong, Matter Practice, Abruzzo Bodziak Architects, labDORA and Theverymany, LLC were selected to contribute ideas to the project based on winning concepts presented during the 2010 Audi Urban Future Award in Venice, Italy. The architects interpreted these concepts to make them applicable to conditions in NYC.

The project not only offers a glimpse into what the city of the future could look like, but also sparks a conversation around innovation, new ways of communicating, never-before-seen concepts of living spaces, new versions of roadways and infrastructure solutions for the future.

Audi Urban Future: Project New York will be on display at Openhouse Gallery (201 Mulberry St. in New York City) on Saturday, May 7 from Noon to 7 p.m., and Sunday, May, 8 and Monday, May 9 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
