Truck-A-Tecture examines architecture as redefined by mobility and technical expansion. This exhibition will generate a unique conversation and offer a new perspective on modern housing. A mash-up of popular and elite cultures, Truck-A-Tecture will transcend the current definitions of “pre-fab” and “mobile architecture.”
Topics of nomadism, transportation, trucking culture and the nature of “home” are among the topics to be explored in this exhibition. Other issues to be considered in this dialogue are sustainability and technological advances that have led many to a leaner, more efficient lifestyle.
Leaders in the filed of architecture will participate, with four firms designing and building full-scale structures. Once complete, these structures will travel to KANEKO from their various locations of construction around the country.
Participating architecture firms:
*Jones Partners, Architects – Los Angeles, CA
*Mark Mack Architects – Venice, CA
*Min|Day – San Francisco, CA / Omaha, NE
*Office of Mobile Design – Venice, CA
