On October 19, 2018, SCI-Arc presents Rough Coat, a public exhibition by Mira Henry. In Henry’s words: “This is a story of constructing a monumental blanket. Blankets, as we know, are soft, submissive, and tolerant. They are inviting to use and easy to put away. The monumental, by contrast, suggests a stern grandiosity—something heroic to build and equally heroic to remove. Here is the set up: in which the relaxed quality of interior comforts are thrown against the rigorous logic of an architectural surface. After that, as is often said, one thing leads to another."
Henry is the principal of Henry Architecture (HA) and the co-principal of the collaborative project Current Interests. She is design faculty at SCI-Arc.
