Neri Oxman’s Exhibition to Focus on Sustainable Architectural Ideas | Nature X Humanity

Focus on Sustainable Architectural Ideas

Nature X Humanity showcases the first-large scale exhibition of American-Israeli architect Neri Oxman’s exemplary work. Along with her team at New York-based practice Oxman Architects, the exhibition questions whether the materials, tools and construction of architecture are sustainably moving forward. It subtly transits the focus from human material wealth to environmental health.

She is the principal-founder of Oxman Architects and also professor of Media Arts and Sciences at the MIT Media Lab. She is one the foremost thinkers and creators in the worlds of architecture, design, science, and engineering.


Spanning from Oxman’s career from 2007 till date, the exhibition celebrates her interdisciplinary approach and never-before-seen projects such as Gemini Cinema and Biodiversity Pavilion models, Aguahoja pavilions and Vespers masks and the ongoing urban planning project The Future of Mannahatta. Featuring 40 artworks and installations that use new biomaterials and fabrication techniques, Nature X Humanity encourages viewers to rethink the human relationship with nature by exploring new ways that buildings can be made, inhabited and preserved. 

An amalgamation of science, engineering, architecture and design, and art, the artist reimagines architecture as a part of the natural environment by developing digital software, tools and new sustainable construction materials and techniques to propose single-material and environmentally responsive buildings. The exhibition aims to question the traditional approach to building with limited or destructive resources by imagining a future of design aligned with nature.

Additionally, the exhibition will also feature prototypes and models for wearables, furniture, and new architecture.
