This Future Has a Past

A multimedia installation that reflects on the life of Gregory Ain, FAIA (1908–1988), and his 1950 Exhibition House for the MoMA garden, the progressive architect’s last significant building. This Future Has a Past retraces the mysterious fate of the house and unearths an extraordinary moment in Ain’s personal history. 

This exhibition was originally organized for an exhibition in the 15th International Venice Biennale of Architecture.

Katherine Lambert, AIA, IIDA, Founding Principal, Metropolitan Architecture Practice; Professor of Architecture, California College of the Arts
Christiane Robbins, Principal, Director of Special Projects, Metropolitan Architecture Practice; former Professor of Media Arts and Director of the Matrix Program for Inter-Arts, University of Southern California
