Space Brainz is an immersive exhibition that presents Hector’s recent experiences from contested architecture and planning projects in North American cities. These stories, involving spiked fences, faulty sidewalks, grassroots riverfront development, and other architectural hijinks, are illustrated through Hector’s models, drawings, photographs, and mock-ups. Contained in a unified structure filling the gallery, the exhibition resembles a futuristic city where clashing interests maneuver to shape the world.
In summer and fall 2017, Hector will collaborate with YBCA Youth Fellows and staff on Yerba Buena 3000, an investigation into the social and architectural environment of Yerba Buena and exploration of its possible futures. Yerba Buena 3000 will open in October.
