Curtis Schreier of Ant Farm has donated Globohotel, an original, one-of-a-kind drawing created by the architect in 1987. The drawing depicts a proposal for a futuristic hotel that “provides ideal facilities for the most needed traveler’s requirements: sleep and bathing.”

 

Schreier studied architecture at RISD. In 1970, he joined Ant Farm during a period of architectural experimentation with inflatable structures and was instrumental in the creation of Media Burn, the Dolphin Embassy, Convention City, and other works. In 2007, he joined Chip Lord and Bruce Tomb for the commission Ant Farm Media Van v.08 [Time Capsule] for the SFMOMA exhibition The Art of Participation: 1950-Now. He has lectured on architecture at Yale and the University of Pennsylvania.

 

Ant Farm was a group of radical architects, designers, and media artists active from 1968-1978. Most well-known for creating the iconic desert sculpture Cadillac Ranch and pulling off spectacular performances like Media Burn (1975), the group also created a variety of video works, popularized inflatable architecture, and produced participatory performances and a futuristic house in Texas (House of the Century, 1972). The core members—Chip Lord, Doug Michels, Hudson Marquez, and Curtis Schreier—sustained an interest in American cultural iconography, nomadic living, technology, and big cars over a ten-year collaborative career. The group officially disbanded in 1978, following a devastating studio fire.
