Philip Poon MArch ’18 Presents “Shared Spaces” at Pearl River Mart Gallery in NYC

Architectural projects by Philip Poon MArch ’18 will be on display at the Pearl River Mart gallery in NYC from July 13 through August 31, 2019. The show, “Shared Spaces,” is an invitation to imagine how people of diverse backgrounds might share the same physical space, particularly Manhattan’s Chinatown. Using large scale models and images, Poon explores architecture’s role in shaping worlds in which those with differing viewpoints, values, and experiences might coincide, and the possible conflicts — and harmonies — that come with that. Three projects will be on display: a proposed Chinatown gateway, a monument to humanitarian Keshia Thomas, and photos documenting Chinatown’s changing landscape.

Pearl River Mart, a family-owned Asian emporium, houses one of the few galleries in New York’s Lower Manhattan dedicated to showing works that matter to Asian American communities.

There is an opening reception on Saturday, July 13, from 5 – 7 PM.
