Creativity on the Line: Design for the Corporate World, 1950–1975
Final Weeks – Closes August 21
Cantor Arts Center, 328 Lomita Drive at Museum Way, Stanford
This major exhibition presents a fascinating new perspective on the creation and production of mid-century modern design. It explores the groundbreaking work of major American designers such as Eliot Noyes and Paul Rand (for IBM and Westinghouse), Charles and Ray Eames (for Herman Miller), and Ivan Chermayeff (for Mobil Oil). European designers, including Ettore Sottsass and Marcello Nizzoli (for Olivetti) and Dieter Rams (for Braun), are also represented. The exhibition examines the connections between these designers and the world of big business and investigates the effect that relationship had on the designers’ self-image as creative professionals.

‘Seven Sins’ Exhibition Opening, Copenhagen, Denmark
8 – 18 Dec 2016
S E V E N S I N S
. Lust . Greed . Gluttony . Envy . Sloth . Wrath . Pride .
An exhibition by architect Yang Wang.
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.

We are offering a hands on participatory workshop where participants will gain experience in sustainable building techniques and understand more about humanitarian design while building worthwhile projects that will have a huge benefit to the local community and local wildlife. Participants will gain an insight into a number of building techniques and architectural styles.
This is a hands on course and will result in a new bamboo prototype working with others to learn on-site skills such as:
• Bamboo framing and roof construction
• Bamboo joinery techniques
• Treatment process of bamboo
• Lessons in bamboo structure
When: The fun bit with hands on lessons in the techniques mentioned above Sat 26th November – Sat 10th December 2016

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.
