With Every Fiber | Exhibit Grand Opening

Saturday, May 4, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Design for Freedom is Grace Farms Foundation’s ongoing work to eliminate forced labor in the building materials supply chain. This permanent exhibit, designed by Studio Cooke John, with Pentagram, offers cross-sector insights into the scope of the problem and proposes strategies and practices to address it through a series of material studies, including timber, steel, concrete, and textiles.

A space for both education and contemplation, the exhibit features innovative solutions, including a tapestry of bio-based materials designed by the Yale Center for Ecosystems + Architecture, alongside contributions from poets, photographers, theologians, and others who remind us to consider the relationships inherent in the questions central to Design for Freedom: where do our building materials come from and are they made with fair labor?

Understanding that humanity touches every single step along the way allows us to reimagine how architecture fits into the rest of our lives.

– Nina Cooke John
