Welcome to the New York Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.
Please join us for the opening of Single Story Project.
For more than a decade, the photographer Adam Friedberg has been documenting every single-story building in the East Village and the Lower East Side. A longtime East Village resident, he noticed how quickly these most humble structures were disappearing, a reflection of the rapid development and gentrification of the neighborhood. He completed the project this past fall, and over the course of the documentation many of the buildings have already disappeared or will soon be demolished.
