The Stairs to Kriterion included in Scaffolding exhibition at the Center for Architecture, New York

Scaffolding curated by Greg Barton examines the extraordinary applications of scaffolding as a kit-of-parts technology to provide novel forms of inhabitation and access. Through an installation designed by Shohei Shigematsu and OMA New York with graphic design by MTWTF, Scaffolding will disrupt the architectural space of the Center for Architecture, installing a new appreciation of scaffolding and its transformative potential.

The exhibition opened today and is on view until 18 January 2018.

The stairs designed by MVRDV was commissioned by Rotterdam Festivals for the initiative Rotterdam celebrates the city!, and made possible by Groot Handelsgebouw, TBI and Stichting Bevordering Volkskracht. Dutch Steigers BV was responsible for the scaffolding with consultancy Adviesbureau Dekker Engineering as engineer of the project.
