Safari 7 Reading Room

New York, NY
  • Publication / Exhibition

The Safari-7 Reading Room is a rotating exhibition that brings the Safari 7 project from the subway to the gallery. Safari 7 is a self-guided podcast tour of urban wildlife along New York City’s 7 subway line. The project engages the broadest range of New Yorkers, from commuters and school children to urban explorers and designers, in active research and exploration of their own environment. The Reading Room exhibition, displayed at the GSAPP Studio X gallery and Grand Central Station, featured an interactive listening model and map of the region, a series of immersive cross sectional drawings that describe urban ecological life in New York City, and a collection of reading and research materials for visiting school groups. Conceived through Urban Landscape Lab, the project is a joint work between Kate Orff, Janette Kim, and Glen Cummings of MTWTF. Read more about the Safari 7 project here.
