San Francisco

Exhibition Opening: Urban Sensorium

Exhibition Opening

Will the installation of quiet pavement make the future of Los Angeles less clamorous? How will the replacement of 250,000 streetlights affect the future of New York City at night? Urban Sensorium, a new exhibition in the SPUR Urban Center gallery created by XL, the research and innovation arm of the landscape architecture firm SWA, extrapolates what the future may look like for five major cities — San Francisco, Los Angeles, Houston, New York and Shanghai — as each undertakes projects to change a singular urban element that will have potentially significant, long-lasting effects for their metropolis.
