Storefront for Art and Architecture is pleased to announce the opening of 9 Families: Emergency Architecture by Torolab, a collective based in Tijuana, Mexico.

For their first solo exhibition in New York City, Torolab will explore their concept of “emergency architecture.” This work is not a response to a singular catastrophic event but rather a means to address the widespread struggle for basic necessities that characterize daily life in cities such as Tijuana.

Torolab was established in 1995 by Raul Cardenas Osuna as a spatial and contextual research laboratory located in Tijuana, Mexico.
