Last week, PSFK had the opportunity to stop by the opening of “Envelopes,” an ongoing exhibition at the Pratt Manhattan Gallery that explores architecture at the intersection of sustainability and “living” systems. Curated by Christopher Hight, an Associate Professor of Rice University’s School of Architecture, the show brings together experimental works from a diverse group of architects and architecture firms that approach the theme in exciting ways. As Hight explains, “The architects in ‘Envelopes’ are all exploring relationships between systems – human, animal, plant, and energy flow – as a site for architectural innovation in the 21st century.”
