Immigration, we know, is a political issue as well as a personal one. But a new exhibition at the Canadian Centre for Architecture reveals that it’s an environmental phenomenon, too. Journeys: How Travelling Fruit, Ideas and Buildings Rearrange Our Environment presents 15 stories of global movement, ranging in scale from a cucumber that crosses national borders to a whole town being relocated. One story in the show, concerning African-American immigration to Liberia in the 19th century, is accompanied by Max Belcher’s photographs of Americo-Liberian houses, including the Reverend June Moore House.
