Inflatable General Assembly
Common Practice (Greta Hansen, Kyung Jae Kim, and Adam Koogler)
Inflatable General Assembly is a mobile, temporary pavilion for spontaneous political assembly designed in response to Occupy Wall Street by Greta Hansen, Kyung Jae Kim, and Adam Koogler of the firm Common Practice. This iteration of the firm's ongoing investigation of pneumatic architecture was commissioned for an October 2013 conversation on protest, public space, and the occupation of Taksim Gezi Park in Istanbul at Studio-X New York. Built to fill the 40-foot long Studio-X New York hallway, Inflatable General Assembly takes 10-15 minutes to inflate with bicycle power and is shown here in Sara D. Roosevelt Park on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
