No-Thing, New York City, NY, USA
An exploration into aporetic architectural furniture

Jan 18 – Feb 17, 2018

Friedman Benda Project Space

Address: 515 W 26th St, New York, NY 10001, USA
Phone: +1 212-239-8700

Friedman Benda presents No-Thing, an exhibition curated by Juan Garcia Mosqueda, with newly commissioned works from nine emerging architectural practices. No-Thing runs from January 18 to February 17, 2018, in Friedman Benda’s project space.

No-Thing examines the prevalence of authoritative domestic practices embedded in our collective unconscious that guides behavior towards our personal possessions. Some of these works are composed of a seemingly ordinary construction that relies on the user’s autonomous self for meaning through postulated use. The title alludes to a state of egalitarian “in-betweenness,” a term defined by R.D. Laing in The Politics of Experience—a reference to their makers’ non-dogmatic approach to object creation.

“It is through objects like the ones in the exhibition that the space necessary for the construction of a new self in society can emerge. Not a utopian, idealized self, but an ambiguous figure, uncertain of its destiny; as uncertain as these aporetic furniture works. Within this framework, where the objects truly emerge through affect, one is urged to take not solely a passive but an active role,” says Juan Garcia Mosqueda.

Presented in tandem with Friedman Benda’s ground floor gallery exhibition, Inside the Walls: Architects Design, a survey of important examples of architect designed furniture spanning the 20th century, curated by Mark McDonald. Featuring works by Frank Lloyd Wright and Marcel Breuer that strive for rationalization and demonstrate attempt to assert control over one’s creations, “Inside the Walls” serves as a corollary to the subjective user experience theme of No-Thing.

No-Thing will feature new works by Andy and Dave (Brooklyn, NY), Ania Jaworska (Chicago, IL), architecten de vylder vinck taillieu (Gent, Belgium), Leong Leong (New York, NY), Milliøns (Los Angeles, CA), MOS (New York, NY), Norman Kelley (New York, NY, Chicago, IL), SO – IL (New York, NY), and Pezo von Ellrichshausen (Concepcion, Chile).

Inside the Walls: Architects Design, New York City, NY, USA

January 18 – February 17, 2018

Opening Reception: January 18, 2018, 6-8pm

Address: Friedman Benda Gallery, 515 W 26th St, New York, NY 10001, USA
Phone: +1 212-239-8700

Friedman Benda presents its annual guest-curated exhibition Inside the Walls:
Architects Design, a survey of seminal architect-designed furniture curated by Mark
McDonald. With representations spanning over a century, the exhibition will present a
broad range of pivotal architects from the US, Latin America, Europe, and Asia—such as
Luis Barragán, Lina Bo Bardi, Marcel Breuer, Charles and Ray Eames, Frank Gehry, Philip
Johnson, Oscar Niemeyer, Charlotte Perriand, Warren Platner, Gio Ponti, Ettore
Sottsass, Kenzō Tange, and Mies van der Rohe—with a focus on three groundbreaking
figures—Gerrit Thomas Rietveld, Rudolph Schindler, and Frank Lloyd Wright, whose
global reach continues today.

Drawing on archival photographs of interiors and historical ephemera, this exhibition
charts revolutionary developments in architecture and design across the 20th century.
Testaments to the innovative use of new technologies born out of post-war scarcity,
works such as Charles and Ray Eames Eames’s Storage Unit (ESU) 400 (1950) and
Charlotte Period’s Bibliotheque ‘Maison du mexique’ (1953) epitomize the ingenious use
of materials like the lighter weight Fiberglas, Masonite, bent plywood and tubular steel.
This presentation will be a unique opportunity to analyze the relationship between
architectural aesthetic and design ethos on a smaller, more intimate scale and
investigate various approaches to reconciling interior and exterior spaces, the
commercial versus the residential and the private versus the public sphere.

Examples of furniture originally designed for specific commissions will be juxtaposed
with furniture and fittings unrelated to a particular project. At the centerpiece of the
exhibition will be the cantilevered exterior light fixtures from Frank Lloyd Wright’s 1914
Francis W. Little House in Wayzata, Minnesota. Exemplary of Wright’s ‘organic
architecture’ approach to interior/exterior cohesion, a reproduction of Francis W. Little
House’s living room and exterior facades is on permanent display at the Metropolitan
Museum of Art.

Screening of Film by Nili Portugali, Israeli Architect A.A.Dip (London), India

2 Feb

At: MIFF – Mumbai International Film Festival, India

Screening Due: 2 February 2018 – 2.00 PM MIFF Prism – Official Selection

Screening & Talk with the Israeli Director / Architect Nili Portugali

This film is opening a public discussion regarding central debates, challenging the general public and 21st-century architects, as how to adopt a new worldview / holistic and cross-cultural one that will transform current thought and approaches being an existential threat to the physical and human environment in which we live. That will create a more HUMAN environment in which man feels at home. In any place, in any culture, and at any time.

At a time of existential threat to the physical and human environment Architect Portugali takes us into a deeply intimate journey in the Kabbala holy city – Tsefat, Israel. A journey that unfolds to a discovery of universal insights from her holistic / Buddhist / scientific P.O.V: What is the secret of all Timeless places in which man feels ‘at Home’ & what is that ‘Pure Art of making’ that creates them. At any culture; place; time. That, via reconstructing childhood memories engraved on each stone of the invisible city’s history. A film crossing new boundaries – straddling the line between art and cinema.

5th International Green Roof Congress, Al Shaheed Park, Kuwait City, Kuwait

17th and 18th February 2018

This event will focus on successful solutions for sustainable urban development.

The fifth edition of IGRA´s prestigious congress series deals with the special challenges of Green Roofs in dry climates. More than one-third of the world population already lives in these expanding regions, without considering the global metropolitan areas which often are grappling with the same problems and referred to as “city deserts”. The performance of Green Roofs in these special environments is strongly connected with the availability and scarcity of water and the limited types of plants, which are able to tolerate these harsh weather conditions – therefore the water & plantation issue is a common thread of the congress presentations and discussions.

With almost 80,000 m² of Green Roofs the largest urban park in Kuwait represents at the same time a prime example of how to meet the challenges of hot and dry climate by using appropriate Green Roof systems.


This congress is for everyone whose profession brings them into contact with Green Roofs and who wishes to learn about the latest technology related to this field. This includes architects, installers, landscape architects, planners, representatives of local authorities and environmental agencies, investors and manufacturers.

The high number of financially wealthy visitors of the Forum from the richest European countries will provide you an opportunity to realize you product on quite favourable terms. Organizing the Forum at the French Riviera during the most popular time for tourist attraction (More than 10 million people visit the resort annually) will also become an advantage of this event.

Among the participants of the Forum are world leading French, Swiss, and other European banks and insurance companies. Representatives of the financial companies will offer favorable mortgage lending conditions for acquiring the presented at the Forum estate and other products. The visitors, who require financial funds, will not have to look for a bank to submit a set of necessary documents and wait unknown amount of time for review of the application. It will be possible to resolve all lending issues within the framework of the event, which significantly shortens the time of making order of the house construction presented at the exposition.

Within the framework of the event there will be tenders for the most quickly constructed and solid construction of residential buildings, multi-storey buildings, public amenity objects as well road construction and restoration projects of cultural and historical heritage monuments. Winners will be awarded construction and contracting works contracts to restore territories of Syria, Iraq, Libya, Donbass destroyed by military actions and suffered from natural disasters (flood, wood fire, earthquake).

The project will be financed by the relevant structures, the UN (UNESKO), the EU, international charities, states involved in the military conflict and well-known commercial structures from around the world. The estimated investment fund is more than 10 000 000 000 euro. Participation in the Forum will provide you with a unique opportunity to become a winner of the contest which will help you, in case of victory, guaranteed profit for a long time.

At the end of the event, near the roadway, within 10 km from the venue of the Forum, in an area of 2,000 square meters, will be created a permanent show room where, for the exhibitors’ request, will be assembled houses represented at the Forum for the further work in promoting their products. That will allow you to reduce logistic costs significantly. Advantageous location on the territory of one of the wealthiest countries in Europe as well as high tourist activity during the year could bring you a sustainable income.

International Theatre Engineering and Architecture Conference 2018

3-5 Jun 2018

The International Theatre Engineering and Architecture Conference (ITEAC) is delighted that TAIT Stage Technologies is the major Sponsor of the 2018 conference, taking place in London, UK next year, 3-5 June.

TAIT Stage Technologies’ continued support of ITEAC by taking the principal sponsorship role for the fourth consecutive conference – having been one of the founder sponsors of the initial event in 2002 – illustrates the tremendous reputation that ITEAC has established over the last sixteen years.

The presentation of ITEAC 2018 – Places for Performance: New Directions, recognises not only the demand for this major event – which seeks to investigate the developments that have already been made, and the innovations that will be required, in the ever-changing world of live entertainment – but also the need of those who design buildings for the performing arts and supply the production technology within them, to gather at this leading and learned event, alongside creators and end-users.

The quadrennial three-day event will take place on Sunday 3 June, Monday 4 June and Tuesday 5 June 2018 at Savoy Place, the Global Engineering Hub of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).

Situated in the heart of London on the north bank of the River Thames, overlooking the National Theatre and Royal Festival Hall and close to the historic Savoy Theatre, the Savoy Place venue, with its impressive views, offers a most appropriate location for ITEAC.

A Call for Sessions has already been issued to those involved in the planning, design, construction, specification and operation of places of entertainment, as well as to writers, designers, performers, producers and production teams. Submissions may still be sent to David Staples, Chairman of the Editorial Board, via this dedicated email:

Presented by the Association of British Theatre Technicians (ABTT), ITEAC 2018 will be the fifth edition of the Conference. Conceived in 2002 by the late renowned stage engineer and ABTT Fellow, Richard Brett, the event has grown from strength to strength, with TAIT Stage Technologies’ involvement having been integral to its success.

ABTT Chief Executive, Robin Townley, commented, “The commitment to supporting ITEAC 2018 that TAIT Stage Technologies have so generously made, is hugely important to allowing the next edition to be presented.

For TAIT Stage Technologies to continue its support of the conference, for the fourth time as Founder Sponsor, underlines their commitment to sustaining the industry. The value they place in the power of an international forum to drive their sector forward and their commitment to supporting the ITEAC conferences, underlines the benefits they consider the event has both for their own teams and for the industry at large.”

He went on to say, “Having established itself as a “must attend” event for so many areas and participants in the creation, execution, design and management of theatrical presentation, the next edition, ITEAC 2018 – Places for Performance: New Directions, has been much anticipated by those engaged in the planning, design, construction, equipping, operation and management of performance spaces of every type – from the stadium and arena, the opera house and receiving theatre, to the school and community venue.

ITEAC 2018 will offer a unique opportunity for the specialists that make up our industry to hear from the makers, creators and producers of performance. It will bring together the world’s leading theatre technicians, architects, engineers, consultants, acousticians and production managers, as well as theatre makers and venue managers, to participate in the most exciting and stimulating investigation of the very particular mix of art and science, craft and technology, illusion and engineering, that we are required to provide.”

All parties are invited to register their interest in attending, speaking or sponsoring the Conference, via the ITEAC website:

10 – 11 Sep 2016
Radical Essex present a programme of events to celebrate the county’s pioneering role in twentieth century architecture.
The two-day festival will pivot around three key sites – the Bata Estate in East Tilbury, founded in 1932 by the Czech visionary Thomas J. Bata, Silver End, a model village conceived in 1926 by the industrialist Francis Henry Crittall and Frinton-On-Sea – and in doing so will show how the region was at the forefront of Modernist architecture and experimental community models.

‘Drawing on the Motive Force of Architecture: Professor Sir Peter Cook in Conversation with Professor Marcos Cruz’
