iMAP - Portable Architecture Concept

Thread collective is a Architectural design studio in Brooklyn ,NY .

iLAND is Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Art, Nature and Dance investigates the power of dance, in collaboration with other fields, to illuminate our kinetic understanding of the world. ILAND, a dance research organization with a fundamental commitment to environmental sustainability as it relates to art and the urban context, cultivates cross-disciplinary research among artists, environmentalists, scientists, urban designers and other fields.

iMAP (Interdisciplinary Mobile Architecture and Performance) is a collaborative project between choreographer Jennifer Monson and architect Gita Nandan and landscape architect Elliott Maltby, both of thread collective.

iMAP is a sustainably designed mobile performance space and interdisciplinary laboratory. Temporarily sited in underused urban areas, the vehicle will facilitate intensive on-site exploration and research, with a particular emphasis on cooperation between artists and scientists. These investigations will lead to the development of performance projects that engage local communities in new understandings of their environment.
