Model of Rotterdam for Interboro's "Community: The American Way of Living" at the IABR


James Rojas constructs scale models of cities made of found objects and kid-friendly building blocks. Interaction, revision and vertical expansion are encouraged–all pieces are movable. Imagineer a new mega-project, aim for accurate representation, or add a flourish here and there to make your own mark. Any which way, Rojas’ models offer citizens a glimpse into the abstract world of city planning and power brokering. Low-tech party toy or high-brow think piece, James constructs a colorful platform for dialogue and community empowerment.
