This exhibition focuses on the increasing interest in civic engagement in American architectural practice, and examines the means by which a new generation of architects is reclaiming a role in shaping community and the built environment. It features 16 architectural groups who actively engage communities, responding to social and environmental issues, including shifting demographics, changing geo-political boundaries, uneven economic development, and the explosion of urban migration.

Intersections: The Grand Concourse at 100.

A visionary feat of 19th century city planning, the Grand Concourse flows through the Bronx from Van Cortland Park at the top to East 138th Street at the south. Inspired by the Champs Élysées in Paris and designed by Alsatian-born engineer Louis Risse, the famous thoroughfare was originally conceived in 1870 as a means of connecting the working class of Manhattan to the green parks of the north Bronx. One hundred years after its opening, The Bronx Museum of the Arts examines the past, present, and future of the Grand Concourse in a year-long, three-part centennial celebration. The three exhibitions comprising Intersections are: Intersections: The Grand Concourse at 100 (03.05.9 – 07.20.09); Intersections: The Grand Concourse Commissions (08.02.09 – 01.04.10); and Intersections: The Grand Concourse Beyond 100 (10.1.09 – 01.04.10).
