Erosion – exhibition, Copenhagen, Denmark
13 Jan – 12 Feb 2017

Erosion – Spacial interpretations from the synthetic landscape called Denmark

An exhibition by architect Morten Sylvest Nøhr
13th of January – 12th of February 2017

About the exhibition:
The intense cultivated danish landscape is shaped by the automated agriculture production, as well as small pockets of synthetic nature. The cities and suburbs are eroding the land with their everlasting need for fresh foods and fossil fuels.

To maximize food production a 1 million km. net of pipe drainage have been build into the fields, providing an efficient underground megastructure supporting the surface machinery of GPS navigated tractors and unmanned farming drones.

Small pockets of nature have been designed by public domains or private initiatives to facilitate a controlled escape that brings back memories of unspoiled forests and romantic walks on long deserted sand beaches.

Erosion is everywhere, taking place on different levels; from physical to psychological. The exhibition explores these levels through drawings, models, texts and installations.

The exhibition is supported by Statens Kunstfond.

Morten Sylvest Nøhr holds a Master in architecture from the Royal Danish School of Fine Arts, School of architecture. In the past 5 years he has explored the Danish countryside through numerous hikes and bike trips. In 2014 he did a 1000 km. long hike, collecting a diverse pile of interviews, photos and drawings for the ongoing study of the synthetic landscape called Denmark.

TOM WOLSELEY, Roaming ROOM, 24 Manchester St, London, UK
12-28 Jan 2017

The exhibition runs from Thursday 12 January – Saturday 28 January Thursday-Saturday 12-6pm.

It will include a screening of the film, research material and photographs from around southeast London of the city and the Shard.

Roaming ROOM architecture event

Tom Wolseley’s exhibition is the summation of 2 years research into the spectacle and dynamics of capital in the
city through an exploration of the Shard, as a building and spectacle, and the production of a film Vertical Horizons: The Shard and the City.

Vertical Horizons is a meditative film about Western Europe’s tallest building, The Shard. Artist filmmaker Tom Wolseley juxtaposes views of The Shard from different vantage points around South London with contrasting narratives about the building and his own response to living in its shadow. The film asks questions about the relationship between the individual and larger global dynamics that are manifesting themselves in the changing landscapes of capital cities like London.

Does ‘showing that London is open for business’ produce these iconic buildings that are less products of capital
than conservative political ideologies? In turn are these architectural projections of an imagined future and present ideologies predicated on nostalgic national and personal modes of identification? Ultimately the film speculates on whether we are in the midst of a re-functionalising of the built environment from cities once understood as places of habitation for people to storage containers for insecure financial assets.

It will include a screening of the film, research material and photographs from around southeast London of the city and the Shard.

Opening Reception: Thursday, September 15, 6-8:30PM
Talk by curator Mark Wasiuta, 6PM

Every Building in Baghdad at the Graham Foundation in Chicago

The Graham Foundation is pleased to present Every Building in Baghdad, an exhibition examining the work of Iraqi architect Rifat Chadirji through the collection of his original photographs and building documents held at the Arab Image Foundation in Beirut. With the work of his architectural office, Iraq Consult, and in his other professional and intellectual roles, Chadirji became a pivotal cultural figure in Baghdad during the period of its postwar modernization from the 1950s through the 1970s. As an architect, planning consultant, and Director of Buildings for various government agencies, Chadirji was central to the organization of Baghdad and to the consolidation of its postwar image. With nearly one hundred buildings Chadirji helped foster the emergence of the factories, colleges, monopoly headquarters, communication structures, and the other new building types that appear in Baghdad following Iraq’s 1958 revolution.

‘Seven Sins’ Exhibition Opening, Copenhagen, Denmark

8 – 18 Dec 2016


architectural interpretation

. Lust . Greed . Gluttony . Envy . Sloth . Wrath . Pride .

An exhibition by architect Yang Wang.
8th – 18th of December
Opening: Thursday 8th of December 2016 @ 17.00

Seven Sins architecture exhibition

Architecture, like any other art, doesn’t directly represent the nature or an abstract idea, rather the practicalities of natural situations, human life. This project focuses on translating sins into architectural scale pavilions.

For the discourse between art and architecture, there is no so-called right and wrong. We (architects) are constantly rethinking and discussing the relationship in between of them, so are you “kind of blue”? Don’t worry, we are still romantic.

Yang Wang is a Chinese architect based in Denmark. She is a graduate from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Architecture, Institut for Kunst og Arkitektur.

The project is funded by STATENS KUNSTFOND.

The Society of Artists in Architecture Inaugural Exhibition, Central London, UK

31 Oct – 5 Nov

The Framers Gallery, Windmill Street, Fitzrovia, London

The Society of Artists in Architecture Exhibition

The Society of Architect Artists (SAA) was a well-loved and successful Society which ceased exhibiting in 2000. It may be remembered as exhibiting frequently at the RIBA Florence Hall from the mid 1970’s to the late 1990’s. It has now been reformed by a group of former Committee Members and they have set up a new website, for the relaunched Society that is live.

The first exhibition of this newly formed SocAA – now called ‘The Society of Architects in Architecture’ (to include a wider range of architectural professionals), will have work by former Fellows of the SAA, and some new young and invited members to create an interesting and varied exhibition. A prize will be given at the exhibition to encourage artists under 35.

This small inaugural exhibition is at the Framers’ Gallery in Windmill Street, Fitzrovia, from the 31st October to 5th November 2016. The SocAA Committee hopes it will establish the SocAA credentials and set it on the course of developing an exciting and engaging new Society. It has the potential to be a platform for the debate on the relationship between art and architecture.
The former SAA was part of a European group of like-minded Architect/Artist Societies under the umbrella title of Ligne et Couleur and the SocAA will re-join this group in due course. We are looking to promote two exhibitions a year, some of which will be themed, and will keep the profession in touch with our progress.

The Earth Architecture Workshop 2016, Ghana, Africa

July 13 – October 14, 2016

Project Title: The eARThouse Project for the Arts | Building a Creative Platform of Hands-on Knowledge for Sustainable Development of Rural Villages

The eARThouse Project for the Arts

Project community page: eARThouse2016 on facebook
Address: The Designing Team: LOAD, Local Actions for Development, Bologna, Italy,
In partnership with NKA Foundation,

All submissions will be reviewed until available space is filled

LOAD, the eARThouse2016 Designing Team is pleased to announce the Earth Architecture Workshop 2016! We look for volunteers, experts, professionals, students of architecture and landscape to locate the completed unit and blend it with the rural surrounding, interior design to organize the interior spaces, product the furniture and fittings, photography/video arts for a documentary and artists to create works of art to adorn the various spaces. African students are welcome to do their part in the building project. Students can use the opportunity for internship, personal research or thesis.
Follow the project updates on eARThouse2016

If interested in participating in the project, send an introductory material on you, and a statement of interest to

When and Where:
The workshop runs from the 13 of July to the 14th of October. The site is Abetenim Village, in the middle rural territories of the ancient Ashanti region of Ghana.

The Purposes:
The aspiration is to help develop a contemporary earth architecture tradition for the region
and along the way, create arts villages to promote arts and design education. The basic idea is to generate user-centered design for low-tech construction to create durable and scalable house types by exploring the accumulated knowledge about ways of building in a tropical climate.

A Platform of Hands-on Knowledge:
It is a reinterpretation of schools in terms of tradition and in the way communities hand down theirs culture. Life-long education is woven into the political, economic, spiritual and physical life. In other words, it envisions the total development of everyone. In an art village the two processes, creation and learning by doing, are very close. The house for artist acquires sensory values and a special sharing spot within the village, as an open learning system. The design aims to integrate locals and guests artist, both interested in enhancing their skills. This full cultural immersion triggers a virtuous circle which improves the unrecognised local resources. The goal is to create an active network of artists and locals, offer a platform for the presentation art, and to develop a critical forum for the promotion of Ghana culture.

The site:
The site of eARThouse project will be Abetenim, located in the Ejisu-Juaben District of the Ashanti Region, 40km from Kumasi. The village is dotted by mud house types and within a population of 1000 inhabitants, the people of the village are essentially farmers. As a local and widely available resource, earth and mud construction can serve as a natural building technology for durable future homes without the high cost and negative impacts of imported concrete and other foreign construction methods, to overcome the stigma of constructions made by earth usually referred to poor farmer’s house and the mobilization of existing unrecognised local resources and cultural artistic heritage.

The Project:
Rammed earth method gives us the ability to self-build a wall with local resources and less waste of materials. The project emphasizes the use of available resources and employment to local artisans. The design is simple, practical and economical.

The Build-design Workshop:
The main goal is to bring together local builders, craftspeople and enthusiastic volunteers to share the knowledge and expertise of everyone involved to create a built environment in order to strengthen the earth construction in Ghana’s long tradition of sustainable housing. On top of providing a community in need with new housing solutions, volunteers will learn how to build a earth house using a site-specific approach, traditional practices and encountering local materials, construction and community. They will immerse in the rich Ashanti’s culture to explore and learn by collaborating on the building process and they will have the chance to visit local attractions participating in field trips.

Design, site-specific issues, and construction strategy are all debated in an effort to create useful structures that are environmentally sustainable and meet local needs. The project culminates in a public celebration of the completed project by way of open house exhibition, or public performance and foods. By engaging in field trips to observe local architecture and working on the building project with local builders, the international participants are exposed to Non-Western ways of thinking and doing in earth architecture.

The Costs:
The Earth Architecture Workshop 2016 is funded through participation donations from the project participants and private donations. These costs cover all fees associated with joining the workshop. The participation fee (300€) is used for the purchasing of material and supplies to complete the construction of the home for artists and a small percentage to cover the workshop organisation. Raising more contributions we will try to reduce them as much as possible. So, please help us to promote our workshop with your interested contacts and ensure the successful completion of the project.

Curatorial Project in Sydney, Tin Sheds Gallery, Darlington, NSW, Australia

28 Jul – 16 Sep 2016

A multiplicity of voices is the defining feature of architecture today. Never before have there been so many distinctive and original visions. The time is ripe to raise the inevitable questions:

– How many architectures do we need?
– Can we remain critical by simply accepting such a diverse and contradictory contemporary panoply of ideas?
– Do we let go of all unifying principles?
– Can we operate without authorities? Should the present diversity be encouraged?
– Should the most distinctive voices be amplified?Should we continue celebrating ‘starchitects’ who haul architecture in many different directions?

Curatorial Project in Sydney

City of Ideas: Architects’ Voices and Visions, curated by Vladimir Belogolovsky, is a stage for 13 such voices to be heard, juxtaposed and interpreted.

Presented through audio recordings, interview transcripts, quotes and images, this exhibition portrays today’s leading architects and society in general. Listen to these voices as they help us challenge one fundamental question: what is architecture, here and now?

Featured architects’ voices:
Will Alsop, Peter Eisenman, YonaFriedman, Anton Garcia Abril & Debora Mesa (Ensamble Studio), Zvi Hecker, Kengo Kuma, Daniel Libeskind, Juergen Mayer H., Glenn Murcutt, Wolf Prix (Coop Himmelb(l)au), Thom Mayne (Morphosis), Hani Rashid & Lise Anne Couture (Asymptote Architecture) and James Wines (SITE).

Vladimir Belogolovsky is the founder of the New York-based Intercontinental Curatorial Project, which focuses on organizing, curating, and designing architectural exhibitions worldwide. Trained as an architect at Cooper Union in New York, he has written over two hundred articles, as well as five books, Conversations with Architects (DOM, 2015), Harry Seidler: LIFEWORK (Rizzoli, 2014), Felix Novikov (TATLIN, 2009; DOM, 2013), Soviet Modernism: 1955-1985 (TATLIN, 2010), and Green House (TATLIN, 2009).
He has curated extensive international exhibitions including Harry Seidler: Painting Toward Architecture which has travelled the world since 2012; it was shown in over a dozen museums and universities across Europe, North and South America, and Australia.

RIBA’s summer showcase at Art Deco HQ and Peckham Levels

Architecture creates spaces for people to gather, socialise and communicate with each other. Does it have the power to involve people in active rather than passive experiences? Earlier this year, the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) issued an open call, inviting ideas from its architect and student members that could create or encourage community activity.

From 21 June until 4 August three of the open call submissions will transform into ambitious 1:1 installations, displayed outside and throughout the RIBA’s Art Deco landmark building at 66 Portland Place for the Institute’s summer showcase.

LSE ‘Urban Age’ Conference at Venice Architecture Biennale, Venice, Italy

14 – 15 July 2016


Over 40 speakers from 25 cities in Asia, Africa, Europe, South and North America will gather in Venice at the Urban Age ‘Shaping Cities’ conference to debate one of the most pressing problems of the 21st century: How are cities shaped? By whom and for whom? How are the conflicts of our increasingly urban age – inequality, climate change, urban growth and expansion, informality, democratic representation and urban stewardship – experienced and lived by the majority of urban dwellers? And, what can we do to make cities more tolerant, adaptable and sustainable?

Mayors and urban leaders of Barcelona (Spain), Bogotá (Colombia), Kampala (Uganda), Venice (Italy), Paris (France) and Safed (Israel) will debate these questions with the key players in international and national organisations including the United Nations, UN Habitat, the Cities Alliance, India’s National Institute of Urban Affairs and the Chicago Council on Global Affairs.

Urban decision-makers, researchers and commentators will join leading architects, planners and designers whose creative work and practical ideas feature in the world’s largest and most respected architecture exhibition organised by La Biennale di Venezia.

The poetic and playful work of architecten de vylder vinck taillieu (Jan De Vylder, Inge Vinck and Jo Taillieu) combines a respect for what already exists with a lyrical and often humorous understanding of architecture as bricolage, as a construction within constructions like nesting matryoshka dolls. In their projects, they create curious plays of transparency, irony, optical illusions, duplications and copies of existing buildings. All this results in an extremely personal, ‘sub-real’ architectural world where reality and illusion magically blend, often compared to the surreal, pictorial world of René Magritte.

Indian architectural practice Studio Mumbai, founded by Bijoy Jain in 2005, has developed a body of work that continues to reference aspects of both Indian and Western cultures. What sets the studio apart is a brilliant combination of tradition and modernity. Local resources and Indian craftsmanship form the basis for highly contemporary architectural designs. Thoughtful and uncompromising to the last detail, the architecture of Studio Mumbai cares deeply about the relationship between man and nature and insists on the importance of the genius loci.

The RIBA President’s Medals Student Awards are aimed at promoting excellence in the study of architecture, rewarding talent, and encouraging architectural debate worldwide.

First awarded in 1836, they are among the most prestigious and long-lasting awards in architectural education anywhere in the world, preceding the Royal Gold Medal (for living architects) established in 1848. The awards categories include the Bronze Medal for Part 1, the Silver Medal for Part 2 and the Dissertation Medal.

In 2015, the RIBA invited 340 schools of architecture in 65 countries to submit entries that were then judged over three days by independent panels of international experts, including architects, academics, designers and artists. This exhibition features selected student work from these nominations and will be on display in the RIBA in London for two months before touring the UK and internationally in 2016.

All nominated projects can be viewed online at

On view Sep 1 – Nov 30
Isa Genzken, among the most significant artists working today, will present a new World Receiver sculpture to mark the final installment of Night (1947-2015), an unfolding exhibition in the Glass House where Alberto Giacometti’s Night (1947) once stood. Genzken’s practice has long engaged in celebration and critique of modern architecture, including an unrealized proposal for Johnson’s AT&T building in 2000.

Enoc Perez: Lipstick
On view Oct 25 – Nov 30

This exhibition will present a new body of work by the artist that refers to the Lipstick Building (1986), an elliptical office tower in Manhattan designed by Philip Johnson and John Burgee.

November Lectures in London, UK
Nov 2015 – dates/times on the poster below:

UEL School of Architecture Events

The event yearly organized by the Sto Foundation in four different European cities: Stuttgart, in Germany, Milan, in Italy, Graz, Paris, in France, Prague in Hungary, is, this year, including London for the first time.
All events are hosted by some major European Schools of Architecture, among them The University of Stuttgart, in Germany, the Politecnico of Milan, in Italy, the TU Graz, in Austria, the École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Paris-Belleville in Paris, in France and the TU Prague in Hungary.

In London, the Sto Foundation has chosen, among others, the School of Architecture at the University of East London, for its outstanding positions on civic engagement and for its interest in manipulating materiality and new technologies.
Sto appointed a curator, Architect Maria Alessandra Segantini, Director of C+S Architects, ( to choose a topic of discussion and invite four outstanding architects to expand on it, through a lecture and a dialogue with her.
As the curator of the 2015 November Lectures in London, Segantini would like to address and discuss the question of public space in our complex information age.

Lecturers have been chosen for their capacity of tacking the nodes of a profession, that of the architect, which is presently undergoing a series of radical changes and where all the different stakeholder involved in the processes of design, construction and final users are asked to sit together around a table and discuss about the future of the piece of the city they are going to transform.

Invited speakers are Freek Persyn, 51N4E, Belgium, Fuensanta Nieto, Nieto Sobejano Architects, Spain, Germany, Alejandro Aravena, Elemental, Chile and Nader Tehrani, NADAAA, USA.
All of them have worked successfully in very specific but different ways to make the process of design an open-ended source.

HJEM, Copenhagen, Denmark

By Johna Hansen

25 Sep – 23 Oct 2015

The exhibition HJEM [home] begins with the consideration that places as well as objects hold traces of their inhabitants or owners. That codes can be found in the way things are used, constructed or structured around, which tell stories that reach beyond their functionality. If the inhabitant/owner is also the maker of the place/object, these two entities can coalesce. In this crossover, one can discover more than that which is immediately apparent.

META modernism Exhibition, Grenfell-Baines School of architecture, UCLAN, Preston, north west England, UK
from Nov 15
Grenfell-Baines School of Architecture Event
picture from organiser
This architecture event will take place in the Edward Building, which can be accessed from the front entrance of the architecture building at UCLAN opposite Granthams printers on Corporation street.
The title of the show is META modernism.
“The Modernist project is a disaster.
The abhorrence of the modern world, expressed most explicitly in a comprehensive popular rejection of the Modernist city, stands testament to the abject failure of the Modernist project to deliver its promised utopia. Mounting a Post-Modern critique of this failure, as irony and as dejection, was itself equally fruitless and ultimately facile, offering far less, in terms of substance, than the Modernist project itself.
If the terms Modernism and Post-Modernism are now somewhat lifeless, they retain between them, at least some prospect of a new order of re-engagement.”

This major retrospective will feature rarely-seen original artwork, including Max’s beautiful (and traffic-stopping at the time) 1914 ‘Wonderground’ map of London Underground stations, Peter Pan map of Kensington Gardens and amazing pictorial map of Theatreland, as well as original posters, personal papers & artefacts unearthed at Gill’s remote Sussex cottage. Much of the work was discovered by Gill’s family rolled up in chests and tucked away under the eaves of the cottage. Max was famous in his day but has become a bit overshadowed by Eric, so the exhibition’s aiming to help bring his work back to the public.
