"Building Fort Greene: Precedents" opened on May 1 at the three-month-old A:D/B Project Space. The exhibit, curated by A:D/B co-director Catherine Morris (above left with co-curator Chris Hall), explores the architectural history of Fort Greene, and comes at a time when controversial plans are in the works to turn the neighborhood into a cultural district, with the Brooklyn Academy of Music at its core.

This exhibit, in the form of a timeline featuring photographs, maps, salvaged architectural detailing, newspaper articles and other ephemera, is the first in a series of exhibitions culminating in an examination of contemporary architecture and design culture in Fort Greene.

"Building Fort Greene" will be on display through June 2 at A:D/B Project Space, 116 South Portland Ave. between Hanson Place and Fulton Street. The gallery is open noon to 6 pm, Thursday through Sunday, and by appointment. For more information, call (718) 855-9394.
