What is Zoning? A Workshop by Rosten Woo

Who does it serve and why should you care? Zoning law regulates land use across the city, and shapes buildings, blocks, and whole neighborhoods. It can be a tool for preservation or for rapid physical and economic development. But how does it work? And why is it so controversial? This hands-on workshop will use games and activities that Rosten Woo has developed with The Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) and Dr. Pop to teach zoning fundamentals and explore the technical and ethical questions behind the laws of the land.

Ice Constructions

Architects and artists invited to participate constructed temporary forms and structures of ice on the Rochester Art Center grounds. Unlike typical ice constructions that use blocks of ice to build more traditional structures, or use blocks of ice as a solid medium for carving sculpture, the constructions took advantage of two properties of water: its fluidity while in the liquid state, and its hardness in the solid or frozen state.

Shade

Shade was a one-day workshop organized by Materials & Applications with artist Edith Abeyta. By combining trash gleaned off the streets of downtown Los Angeles and transforming the items into sculptural quilts through community base collaboration, the workshop exposes the ugly side of abundance in the beautiful objects she makes. Several dozens of people working together have crocheted thousands of recycled plastic grocery bags to create a 10′ x 15′ crocheted awning.
