CFA Lab: Seeking Refuge and Making Home in NYC presents three visions of making, feeling, and being at home in the city, foregrounding stories of three communities central to urban life in New York who have continuously grappled with the marginalization of their ways of being. This year’s three residents, Kholisile Dhliwayo, A.L. Hu, and Karla Andrea Pérez, selected from over 50 applicants, bring their unique insights based on research and co-creation with partners from their own communities and those they work with.
The Center for Architecture Lab is a multi-month, multi-disciplinary residency program that aims to invite a greater diversity of professionals to participate in the fields of architecture and design. Lab encourages our community to consider outside perspectives, critical questions, and innovative solutions to systemic problems in architecture and other design professions.
