In Partnership with State of the Arts (KERA and DMA)
The Dallas Architecture Forum is pleased to continue its 20th Anniversary 2016-2017 Lecture Season with Alex Krieger, principal in the architecture firm NBBJ. He and his team have produced a new community development plan for the Dallas Arts District, which supersedes the approximately 30-year-old Sasaki Plan that provided the initial framework for the 17 blocks between Uptown and Downtown.
Jerome Weeks, Senior Arts Producer-Reporter with KERA’s Art&Seek will moderate a discussion with Alex Krieger, Principal at NBBJ and Professor in the Harvard Graduate School of Design, and Peer Chacko, Chief Planning Officer for the City of Dallas, as they review the updated plan. The discussion about the Arts District will also include the broader context of Dallas and the other emerging creative centers across our city, as well as the changing attitudes of American culture towards cities and urbanism.
Krieger will speak on Thursday, January 26 at 7 p.m. in the Horchow Auditorium at the Dallas Museum of Art.
“Alex Krieger is an outstanding educator, architect and sought-after consultant to city officials and planning staffs. He was appointed by President Barak Obama to the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts,” stated Nate Eudaly, Executive Director of the Dallas Architecture Forum. “His new plan for the Arts District will create a more engaging environment in which to enjoy the arts and should provide a program of great interest to the Dallas community.”
The lecture will occur at 7 p.m. on December 26. There will NOT be a reception for this special State of the Arts event. Admission is FREE for Forum, KERA and DMA members. General Admission is $5 for this special program. Tickets can be purchased at the door before the lecture. No reservations are needed to attend Forum lectures.

IAHmilan17 International Architecture Holiday, Milan, Italy
30 March – 4 April 2017
Archistart, following the success of IAHsummer and IAHrome editions promotes IAHmilan17, an international architecture workshop, incorporated within a holiday, created in order to generate interactive experiences between students and young graduates under the age of 32 years. Fifty young people from all over the world will have the chance to live 5 days full of architecture in the beautiful city of Milan.
Milan is the perfect location for an international event where students from all over the world can meet and work together. This city is now experiencing a modern renaissance, becoming one of the most dynamic cities of Europe. In line with the social policies initiated by the Municipality of Milan and in partnership with Passpartout – network of social enterprises – the theme of the workshop will concern the regeneration of “Casa Chiaravalle” spaces, initiative launched at Cascina Chiaravalle – the biggest asset seized from mafia in Lombardy.
The workshop will focus on the design of a series of interventions on the external and internal spaces, that will give new visions and fresh ideas to the renewal process already started on the property with the primary aim of spreading the feeling of Casa Chiaravalle as a public space among the community of the city. The workshop will be held in conjunction with the “Festival dei Beni Confiscati” (assets seized from mafia festival) and during the period of “Salone del Mobile 2017”.
The innovative aspect of this initiative is the breaking of classical learning processes simultaneously pointing to several factors: integration and cultural exchanges between students from around the world within a single working environment; discover the secret corners of the city; experience first real project situations in close contact with tutors and professionals; experience real competition through an internal competition and fun, assured by the atmosphere and continuous organization of events, parties and initiatives.
Workshop entries will begin 16 January 2017 and will end 20 March 2017.

NYCxDESIGN 2016 featured over 500 events throughout the five boroughs including the Design Pavilion at Astor Place Plaza and the first annual NYCxDESIGN Awards, presented by Interior Design magazine and the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) Awardees consisted of companies and design leaders who excelled in design fields such as urban design, fashion, architecture, technology, public space projects and more. For a full list of this year’s winners, visit 2016 NYCxDESIGN Awardees.
“New York is the most innovative city in the world and NYCxDESIGN is one way we are able to recognize, not only, design talent in the five boroughs, but also our world-renowned design schools and businesses that are leading the way. Design and innovation makes our city unique and moves our world forward,” Mayor de Blasio said.

I want to thank the New York City Economic Development Corporation for their efforts to drive economic development through the attraction of more designers to the city.”

International Conference on Competitions, Leeds, UK
27 – 29 Oct
The sixth International Conference on Competitions (ICC), examining experimentation within architecture competitions, is set to take place at Leeds Beckett University in October.
Architecture competitions are open calls to compete for the best design or idea in response to a brief presented by a client. This can be managed through an established organisation, such as the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). An example of buildings that have originated through the competitions process include the Royal Armouries, Wembley Stadium, and the Millennium Bridge in the UK; and, internationally, the Centre Pompidou in Paris and the Sydney Opera House.
Dr Maria Theodorou, Senior Lecturer in Architecture at Leeds Beckett University and co-organiser of the event, explained: “The purpose of ICC 2016 is to offer a window into current interdisciplinary research on the topic of architecture competitions. In recent years we have, alongside the standard process of architecture competitions used for the procurement of buildings, seen, and continue to see, a surge of competitions which do not seek to produce a building or an architecture structure, but aim instead to raise awareness and pinpoint current social, political, technological issues in our cities. These aim to entice experimentation by reformulating and resetting the very terms and conditions within which a problem is posed or arises. Moreover, concerns over competitions exploiting the unpaid work of the contestants have also been voiced.”

What is NASA, India?
The National Association of Students of Architecture divides all architecture colleges across India into six zones. To bring together colleges from each zone, NASA, India holds an exclusive convention for students of architecture.

Born in Tokyo in 1957, Shigeru Ban graduated from the Cooper Union and started working for Arata Isozaki & Associates in 1982. He founded Shigeru Ban Architects in 1985 and became consultant to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in 1995.
St Mary Redcliffe Symposium, UK
St Mary Redcliffe Church in Bristol : Architecture Competition
23 Feb 2016
A series of talks and discussions in one of England’s finest churches.
Hear new thinking on issues surrounding the design and construction of new buildings on historically important sites. This symposium is recognised by the Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC) for CPD.
St Mary Redcliffe Church in Bristol – once described by Queen Elizabeth I as ‘the fairest, goodliest and most famous parish church in England’ – has recently launched an international architecture competition, run by Malcolm Reading Consultants, to inform a large scale redevelopment of its facilities. The project will result in the appointment of a team of architects with whom the church will work to develop a proposal for new built infrastructure in the environs of the current church building.
In recognition of the status of St Mary Redcliffe as one of Bristol’s most important landmarks and one of the country’s most important parish churches the church has decided to hold a Symposium on church architecture entitled Architecture and the contemporary church: imagining the new in the context of the old.
Featuring a filmed introduction from Mayor of Bristol, George Ferguson
Lecture by the architect, lecturer and theorist Luis Martínez Santa-María, School of Architecture de UIC Barcelona
Date: Monday, 15 February 2016 – 7 p.m.
Lecture: “Peso y Materia”. Weight and Matter
Place: School of Architecture de UIC Barcelona
Aula Magna (Main Hall) – C/ Immaculada, 22, Barcelona
Public lecture. Free admission
Next Monday, 15 February, the School of Architecture at UIC Barcelona hosts the second lecture of Foros 2016, “Origin”. The lecture, which is open to the public and will take place at 19:00 in the Main Hall of the UIC Barcelona Campus, is given by Luis Martínez Santa-María, Doctor of Architecture from the Madrid School of Architecture (ETSAM). Martínez Santa-María is renowned both for his design work, and as a teacher and the author of various publications reflecting on architecture.
With the title “Weight and Matter”, the guest speaker will be examining how some architecture works and projects combine these two concepts in a way that constantly escapes reality. According to Martínez Santa-María “architecture belongs to the physical world, in which bodies and objects have a weight, and move towards and away from each other and us, by virtue of their material condition”.
Luis Martínez Santa-María combines teaching and editorial work with his ongoing activity in the studio as integral parts of his commitment to architecture. He has lectured in Projects at the ETSAM since 1990, and his doctoral thesis “Tierra espaciada: el árbol, el camino, el estanque ante la casa” was awarded the UPM’s Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Award in 2000. Since 2005 he has been director of La Cimbra, the book collection of Fundación Caja de Arquitectos. His body of architecture work reflects his interest in the floor plan, which, according to Martínez Santa-María, generates architecture and concentrates the intellectual capacity of the architect.
Foros is an annual lecture series organized by the UIC Barcelona School of Architecture in which
renowned national and international architects share their vision of architecture and the profession through
their work. In this eighteenth edition, Jorge Vidal, lecturer and director of Foros, under the title “Origin”,
invites the speakers at this edition to get to the origin of things, of thinking, of projects and works, with
the aim of drawing a map to help us understand things that can be invisible and hard to explain.
Sobre la School of Architecture de UIC Barcelona
The School of Architecture at UIC Barcelona is committed to the intellectual, professional and personal
growth of all those who form part of it. The School of Architecture has strongly invested in a teaching
model based on individual attention, practical learning based on bringing in all areas of knowledge,
cutting-edge technology and teaching staff with international experience in order to train architects to be
able to tackle the challenges posed by society.
Baltic Pavilion: The Phosphorite Debate, Estonian Centre of Architecture
15 February at 18:00 to 21 February at 15:00 in UTC+02
Next week, this public discussion series will seek to present an understanding of architecture as an agent at the heart of civic debate establishing a sphere of visibility and publicity – explaining contemporary challenges of built environment and role of the architect in making structures public. The talks will be public and open to everybody; the event series will be in English.
In 1980s, the environmental protests both rejected the mass-industrialization of our local resources and galvanized the Estonian independence movement. Analyzing that historical precedent as a starting point, the focus of the discussion will shift to contemporary developments. The talks will inquire into range of issues enabling connections between politics, civic processes, technological developments and built infrastructures in order to establish an understanding of the complex phenomena as space for architectural interventions to deal with its consequences.
The focus on the Phosphorite Debate
With invited designers, planners, paleo-ecologist, environmental activists, geologists and representatives of the mining industry, the panel discussions will focus on society’s relationship with mining – how Estonia and the Baltic Region relate to its mineral resources and the industries involved. Our round table discussions will trace the ideas relating society to its material space and resources. Both extremes of this debate – the condition of mining and not-mining – consist of their inherent material and immaterial infrastructures, technologies and strategic argumentation where visionary thinking meets provisionary control of the environment, while creating complex material, bureaucratic, political, civic conditions to enable or disable the process.
As a result, we seek to render out an operative image or a diagram charting those two opposites, the conditions of mining and not mining with the aim to understand their interrelations as specific parameters for possible further formulations of architectural agendas and ideas on modes of intervention possible in the region.
The Phosphorite Debate is a part of the Baltic Pavilion conceptual framework – the project representing the Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania at the 2016 La Biennale di Venezia International Architecture Exhibition, and the talks programme is led by Johan Tali (Estonia), Jonas Žukauskas (Lithuania), Jurga Daubaraite (Lithuania), Petras Isora (Lithuania), Niklāvs Paegle (Latvia) and Dagnija Smilga (Latvia) from the Baltic Pavilion curatorial team.
The week-long series of talks is organized with support from The Estonian Academy of Arts Department of Architecture and Estonian Center of Architecture, funded by the Cultural Endowment Fund of Estonia.
The events are all in English and take place in the venue rooms of Estonian Centre of Architecture (Põhja pst 27a, Tallinn).

Drawing on the Motive Force of Architecture, RIBA HQ, 66 Portland Place, London, UK
9 Feb 2016
Image by Peter Cook, ‘Veg House, Stage 4’:
On 9 February at 18:00-20:30, RIBA HQ 66 Portland Place will be hosting a CPD seminar:
‘Drawing on the Motive Force of Architecture: Professor Sir Peter Cook in Conversation with Professor Marcos Cruz’
For architects, drawing is a thinking process. Sketching by hand onto paper without having any predetermined built form in mind is often the springboard for new hypotheses. With the rise of digital representation in architecture, has the computer superseded the hand in the exploration of ideas?
