Light carves out the world around us. It separates night from day, and its particles are always in motion. Recognizing these peculiarly architectural qualities of light, MADWORKSHOP, the Accademia di Architettura di Mendrisio and the Fondo Ambiente Italiano (FAI) are launching Light Theaters, a new exhibition opening at Villa Panza in Varese, Italy on 10 February 2018.

MADWORKSOP x Riccardo Blumer x FAI x Villa Panza:
Light Theaters Viklla Panza

Director of the Accademia di Architettura di Mendrisio, Riccardo Blumer has spent the last six months working closely with the Academy’s students, studying the dynamics of light in space. This exploration is now culminating in an exhibition of ten elaborate new pieces that intrigue the eye and play with perception, illuminating and refracting the ocular experience. Inspired by everything from VR and sci-fi to the luminescent grandeur of high baroque, these visually stimulating installations are unified in their use of artificial light as a sculptural medium.

The exhibition was also inspired by the nearby Sacro Monte di Varese complex, recognised as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Several of the artworks also consider the history and scenography of this historic place, tracing ancient lines of pilgrimage through the surrounding mountains with light beams and immersive experiences.

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

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.

Platform for Architecture + Research / PAR, Los Angeles

Opening: Friday, 8 September 2017, 6:30 pm
Exhibition: 9 September – 19 October 2017
Location: Aedes Architecture Forum, Christinenstr. 18-19, 10119 Berlin
Hours: Tuesday – Friday 11 am – 6:30 pm, Sunday – Monday 1 – 5 pm

The exhibition presents the work of American architects Platform for Architecture + Research / PAR, founded by Jennifer Marmon in Los Angeles. Questioning the role and limits of architecture today, Marmon, together with her collective team, are part of a new generation of architects exploring universal topics as a means to expand their discipline in new ways. The installation illustrates the various strategies used by the office to develop their specific design approach that aims to establish a dialogue with people as well as the local conditions to result in their individual mode of architectural expression.

The office ‘Platform for Architecture + Research / PAR’ was established in 2003. They have since been awarded several prizes, including the Presidential Emerging Practice Award from the American Institute of Architects Los Angeles in 2014, an International Architecture Award in 2014, and American Architecture Awards in 2013 and 2016. The work of the office has been featured in exhibitions at the Venice Architecture Biennale, the US National Building Museum, the New York Center for Architecture, and the European Center for Architecture.

Providing an insight into their architectural universe, the exhibition presents buildings, competition entries and urban studies including the Wilshire Tower in Los Angeles/US, the AD18 Hotel in Los Angeles/US, the Taichung Cultural Center in Taichung/Taiwan, the Guggenheim Museum in Helsinki/Finland, the Bauhaus Art Museum in Dessau/Germany, the Lima Art Museum in Lima/Peru, as well as the Pavilion House, the Stacked House, and the View House all located in Los Angeles/US among others.

The featured projects range in scale from small houses to museum concepts. Drawings, models, and images reveal the diagrammatic thinking, exploration of form and connections to the urban fabric that link PAR’s projects. With its idea of a network of relationships, the exhibition reflects the essential architectural elements of organization, material and form that influence the offices work to benefit living conditions, urban identity and the integration of the local surroundings with their respective city.

Diller Scofidio + Renfro, New York

Exhibition: 9 September – 19 October 2017
Opening: Friday, 8 September 2017, 6:30pm
Location: Aedes Architecture Forum, Christinenstr. 18-19, 10119 Berlin
Hours: Tue–Fri 11am–6:30pm, Sun–Mon 1–5pm

Diller Scofidio + Renfro (DS+R) is an interdisciplinary design studio that integrates architecture, the visual arts, and the performing arts. Founded in 1979, the New York City-based practice established its identity through self-generated, theoretical art installations before reaching international prominence through projects such as the renovation and expansion of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York, and the High Line, an urban park built on an abandoned elevated railway trestle on Manhattan’s west side. Today, DS+R is led by four partners who collaborate on the design of each project with a staff of 100 architects, artists, researchers, and writers. DS+R is currently engaged in numerous projects across the world: the 34-acre Zaryadye Park adjacent to the Kremlin in Moscow; the Museum of Image & Sound on Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro, and The Juilliard School’s first overseas campus in Tianjin, China.

As DS+R’s first exhibition in Berlin, ’Space On Demand’ presents a rare preview of the studio’s methodology and innerworkings through the close examination of a single project, still under construction: The Shed. Conceived and designed by DS+R, in collaboration with Rockwell Group, and led by Founding Artistic Director and CEO Alex Poots, The Shed will be New York’s first multi-arts center designed to commission, produce, and present all types of performing arts, visual arts, and popular culture. This dynamic snapshot of the project‘s ongoing design process represents the studio’s most adventurous approach to rethinking cultural institutions. ’Space On Demand’ will feature physical artifacts, technical documentation, and ephemera key to realizing this project.

Sited on the west side of Manhattan along the High Line at 30th Street, The Shed comprises an eight-level base structure and a telescoping outer shell. The base building holds two expansive, column-free galleries; a 500-seat black-box theater that can be subdivided into even more intimate spaces; event and rehearsal space; and a creative lab that will be provided free to early-career local artists. The telescoping outer shell can be deployed over the adjoining plaza to create a light-, sound-, and temperature-controlled hall that can serve an infinite variety of artists’ needs and uses, including as a theater seating 1,250 people or a standing audience of up to 3,000 people. Its ceiling acts as a theatrical deck, allowing for rigging across the entire volume of space above performers and audiences, as well as light and sound control. When the shell is nested over the base building, the plaza can be used as outdoor space and for programming. With references to Cedric Price’s unbuilt, ’anti-building’ of the 1960s, the Fun Palace, The Shed is infinitely flexible. It can expand or contract to accommodate the needs of a vast range of performance, visual arts, events and multidisciplinary work. The building can physically change at will to support artists’ visions and enable collaborations across disciplines under one roof.

DS+R founding partner, Elizabeth Diller commented: “The opportunity to design a ground-up building for the arts forced the question, what will art look like in the next 10 years? 20 years, and beyond? The answer was that we simply could not know. All that we could be certain of was that there would always be a need for conditioned space of different heights and sizes, a need for structural loading capacity, and a need for electrical power. The solution was, an architecture of infrastructure.”

DS+R collaborator, David Rockwell of Rockwell Group, added: “We questioned how we could build in flexibility that is liberating and not constraining to the building’s function and would achieve the best possible conditions for the creation of new work. We found a way to create a center for the arts that is as useful for performing artists as it is for visual artists and popular artists.”

Upon completion in 2019, The Shed will further expand DS+R’s interdisciplinary body of cultural work, operating from all sides of the gallery and museum wall. As artists and curators, the studio has completed over four dozen installation works including Blur, a pavilion of fog built for the Swiss Expo on Lake Neuchâtel; ’Liquid Antiquity’ at the Benaki Museum in Athens; ’Off the Cuff’, at Palazzo Litta during Milan Design Week; ’EXIT’ at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, an immersive installation using data visualization on global migration; ’The Art of Scent’ at the Museum of Art & Design, the first exhibition on the history of olfactory art; ’Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, an account of the couturier using 3D imaging and robotics; and ’Pierre Chareau: Modern Architecture and Design’ at the Jewish Museum using VR. As architects, the studio’s body of cultural work includes the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston and The Broad, a museum in Los Angeles. This year, DS+R completed the first phase of the Museum of Modern Art renovation and expansion in New York. The studio is currently working on ’The Mile-Long Opera’ to be staged on the High Line in New York.

Discussion with
Elizabeth Diller, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, New York
Chris Dercon, Volksbühne, Berlin

While in the entire world museums, art centres and cultural clusters growing countless for various reasons and expectations, often new curatorial concepts are rare reflecting the new challenges, opportunities and demands of changing societies and economic conditions of the 21st century. ’The Shed’ can be read on multiple levels and translates the physical structure into an urban and new cultural actor to commission, produce, and present all types of performing arts, visual arts, and popular culture.

Elizabeth Diller and Chris Dercon will discuss approaches to uncover a new educational and cultural tracery or networks, whose surface can represent a resilient base for a democratic society of sufficient collective strength to resist/question branding and privatization of art, culture and education or political influenced takeover.

Composite Material Event, Telford International Centre, England, UK

5 – 7 Sep 2017

Growing use of composite materials for architects poses inspection challenge

While composites are increasingly being used to replace conventional materials in architecture and infrastructure, experts are still assessing the best ways to inspect and validate such structures.

Some of the world’s leading authorities on composite inspection will be gathering in Telford next month to reveal the latest research and cutting-edge testing techniques. The event on Tuesday 5 September is part of NDT 2017, the annual conference of the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) and will run alongside its free Materials Testing exhibition from 5-7 September at Telford International Centre.

The full-day programme of conference lectures will focus on different inspection techniques including ultrasonics and X-ray and applications such as aircraft composites and 3D woven fabrics. There will also be a half-day of lectures on the inspection of additive manufactured parts on the following morning, Wednesday 6 September.

Cailean Forrester, who is head of BINDT’s composites group and CEO of the inspection company Inspectahire, said: “The use of composites now extends well beyond supercars and aircraft to trains and ships, pipelines, bridges and buildings.

However as with any new materials, we do not know for certain how these structures are going to behave in five to ten years’ time and are still working out how best to inspect and validate them. By sharing leading-edge research and the latest developments, this event will help to build confidence in expanding the use of composites.”

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.
