Every Building in Baghdad: The Rifat Chadirji Archives at the Arab Image Foundation on view at the Graham Foundation
September 15 – December 31, 2016
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.

Heritage and Sustainability: The improbable couple
Ana Pereira Roders, Eindhoven University of Technology

Heritage and Sustainability are often assumed unrelated, and consequently, studied separately. On the one hand, heritage is assumed focused on material resources, driven by past values, primarily historic. On the other hand, sustainability is assumed focused on people, driven by present and future values, primarily economic, social and environmental.

Debate: Does user involvement create better designs?, The Building Centre, London, UK
27 Feb 2017

Date: 27 February 2017
Time: 6.30 – 8.30pm
Venue: Future Cities Catapult
Price: £15 + VAT, concessions £12 + VAT
Speakers: Robert Sakula, partner, Ash Sakula
Dieter Kleiner, director, RCKa
Carolina Caicedo, The Decorators
Kyle Buchanan, director, Archio

Does participatory design lead to better buildings? How and why do architects benefit from a close collaboration with users during the design process? The third event in our Architecture and Citizenship season takes the format of a debate to understand whether getting the users involved results in better designs.

On one hand, co-design allows a wide range of people affected by a particular design challenge to make a creative contribution in shaping the solution of a problem. On the other hand, a large number of participants involved might make the design process much more complicated and difficult to manage, often with limited benefits. This talk aims to understand what tools are available to architects to facilitate co-design processes, and what might be the potential obstacles as well as rewards. We will hear from four speakers who will each present their case for a more critical engagement with the users in the design process to understand how participation impacts the current practice in the built environment industry.

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.

Distinguished Educator, Architect and Creator
of the New Dallas Arts District Master Plan Alex Krieger
Thursday, 26 January 2017 at Dallas Museum of Art
In Partnership with State of the Arts (KERA and DMA)

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.

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.

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

31 Oct – 5 Nov 2016

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, http://www.socaa.co.uk 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.

International Conference on Competitions, Leeds, UK

27 – 29 Oct 2016

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.”
