Untapped Cities Insiders are invited to attend the opening of the exhibition, Close to the Edge: The Birth of Hip-Hop Architecture at the Center for Architecture. This event is part of Archtober, a month long celebration of architecture all over New York City. Close to the Edge is comprised of work from students, academics and practitioners at the center of the emerging hip-hop architectural revolution and is curated by Sekou Cooke of Syracuse University.

Hip-hop is a cultural movement established by the Black and Latino youth of New York’s South Bronx neighborhood in the early 1970s. Its primary products—deejaying, emceeing, b-boying, and graffiti—have evolved over the last five decades into a globally dominant force. Hip-Hop Architecture produces spaces, buildings, and environments that embody the creative energy evident in hip-hop’s first four elements.
