The issue of construction and its environmental effects on land and space is one of great importance to contemporary architects. A new exhibition, Relevant Notes at the Cara Gallery in New York, mixes the works of younger and older architects and artists whose work strived to make minimal permanent change to a site. The exhibit places, for example, projects by Andrés Jaque and Florentine ‘Radical’ Gianni Pettena in close visual and conceptual dialogue. The exhibit includes the work of: Christo & Jeanne-Claude, Ebtisam AbdulAziz, Matteo Berra, 
Igor Eškinja, Bruna Esposito, Franklin Evans, Diango Hernández, Federico Luger, Jason Middlebrook and Gianni Pettena.

Cara Gallery is located at 508 West 24th Street and the exhibit runs through July 30, 2016.
