Clutter and Peñarroyo Exhibit "Shaped Places" at Pinkcomma Gallery in Boston

Associate Professor McLain Clutter and Assistant Professor Cyrus Peñarroyo exhibit urban design propositions in “Shaped Places of Carroll County New Hampshire” at Pinkcomma Gallery, 46 Waltham Street, Courtyard One, Boston, MA 02118. The exhibition opens Thursday, September 20 with a reception from 6:00–8:00pm.

“Shaped Places of Carroll County New Hampshire” speculates on the complex relationship between who we are and the shape of where we live; between identities and the built environments that support them. The project culminates in the design of three cities in Carroll County, New Hampshire, a state whose shape may hold unique political resonance due to its perilously purple hue on November 8, 2016. Much like the gerrymandering that arguably produced the results of the latter, the project seeks to geometrically organize population at the geographic scale to carefully prescribed ends.
