This ongoing exhibition for the National Building Museum was produced in collaboration with consulting curator Chrysanthe Broikos and Elihu Rubin, associate professor of urbanism at Yale University.

In four parts, each section has a dedicated page and image gallery. All pages link to every other exhibition page, and the final section also includes “Overheard and Observed,” in which Vergara documents a portion of what he has experienced over the past several months.
