Living in a world of constant change requires ever-recurring adjustments in forms of repair as things break, decay, or fall into pieces. The Adaptive Reuse and Exhibition design studio by the Department of Interior Architecture, RISD, under guidance of Prof. Markus Berger investigated creative and generative topics of repair by engaging the 200-year-old Cathedral of St. John and the Center of Reconciliation RI. The proposed projects by the students, through potential rewriting of content, program, and meaning, envisioned new futures that reinvigorate the cathedral and its undercroft and create connections to the community of Providence.
Year of the City: The Providence Project is an unprecedented year-long exploration of the history, life and culture of Providence’s twenty-five neighborhoods through exhibitions, performances, walks, lectures, and conferences produced by more than 50 different curators.
