Ecophilia is a project by designer and educator Constantin Boym, presented in collaboration with Hudson Valley store and gallery Available Items. Inspired by Enzo Mari’s ‘Autoprogettazione’ manual and the belief that eco-humanism needs to find its expression in design, ‘Ecophilia’ is a series of modern habitats for plants and animals that anyone can build using materials and tools that are accessible, economical, and environmentally sound.
From May 20-22 Available Items will present an installation of Ecophilia objects designed by Boym in the courtyard of the new Penny Williamsburg hotel. The exhibition will be accompanied by the recently published ‘Ecophilia’ book containing drawings and instructions for building and installing each piece and an inspiring foreword by architect and environmentalist James Wines.
