“Transform” exhibition, Lacaton & Vassal at S AM Basel

For this show, three independent positions have been selected: “99¢ Space” by agps in Santa Ynez (USA), “Cité du Grand Parc” by Lacaton & Vassal, Frédéric Druot and Christophe Hutin in Bordeaux (France) and the front structure for “Halle 118” by Baubüro in situ in Winterthur (Switzerland).

Today, the half-life of buildings is decreasing rapidly. When their function changes, they are often simply replaced. However, criticism of this spatial throwaway culture is growing. An ever-increasing number of architects are once again investigating structures’ potential for transformation and, in their reinterpretation, discovering scope for experimentation. To address this topic, the S AM Swiss Architecture Museum is presenting the exhibition “Transform” from the 29th of September to the 4th of November 2018.  (more…)

The contents of the exhibition featured the resources that the architect uses during his creative work, a very complex process that begins with the intellectual construction of the first ideas, which are conceived and matured in the brain, until its realization and real construction later, using different tools. The intellectual construction is very complex and in it many variables determined by knowledge and sensitivity intervene, in an almost oceanic dimension by extension and depth. The exhibition includes a selection of works and architecture projects carried out between 1977 and 2017.

“Renzo Piano. The Art of Making Buildings” at the Royal Academy of Arts

This illuminating exhibition follows Piano’s career, from the influence of his Genoese heritage and his rise to acclaim alongside friend and collaborator Richard Rogers, to current projects still in the making. Focusing on 16 key buildings, it explores how the Renzo Piano Building Workshop designs buildings “piece by piece”, making deft use of form, material and engineering to achieve a precise and yet poetic elegance.

From The Shard in London to the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the buildings of Renzo Piano have enriched cities across the globe. We reveal the vision and invention behind his pioneering work, showing how architecture can touch the human spirit. United by a characteristic sense of lightness, and an interplay between tradition and invention, function and context, Piano’s buildings soar in the public imagination as they do in our skylines. Counting the New York Times Building and the Jean-Marie Tjibaou Cultural Centre in Nouméa among his creations, he has cemented his place as one of the greatest architects of our times. (more…)

“Between landscapes and history” Wright and organic architecture at IUAV, two exhibitions at the Tolentini

The exhibition aims to illustrate the reception that Frank Lloyd Wright’s lesson and the “organicist” conception had within the IUAV from the post-World War II period.

Some concomitant facts contributed decisively to the development of an original and multifaceted tendency: the presence in the School directed by Giuseppe Samonà of a historian such as Bruno Zevi – of which the centenary of his birth occurs -, the arrival in Venice of Wright and the task attributed to him to design the Angelo Masieri Memorial on the waters of the Grand Canal, the role of “mediator” of the American master’s thought played by Carlo Scarpa, a brilliant, influential and already established architect.

“Cartesian Space” AMO for 2019 SS Prada Man’s Show

For the 2019 Spring/Summer fashion show, AMO stages a return to basics with a sophisticated setup that brings fashion into the foreground by questioning the recent practice that sees show sets as explanatory efforts to contextualize collections.

The rough imperfection of the venue in Via Fogazzaro, Milan, is counterbalanced by the Cartesian precision of the set, which magnifies the industrial elegance of the space. The room is treated as an architectural field that controls the show’s dynamics: a grid defines the areas occupied by guests, while four different trajectories are left unoccupied for models to cross the room longitudinally, enforcing a strict serial layout.

“Guardiola House” Peter Eisenman at Frac Centre-Val de Loire

The Guardiola House (1986-1988) evokes traces left by decomposing the movements of a form sliding along a slope, much like a wave on the sand. Designed for Cadiz bay in Spain, the housing project is the result of operations that manipulate (rotation, displacement, superposition, shift) a basic geometrical figure: the cube.

Peter Eisenman is an internationally renowned architect, theorist and teacher, who made his mark during the 1980s in United States as a leading figure in deconstructive architecture. The constant parallel he established between philosophy and linguistics allowed him to rethink architecture’s history, along with its functioning and limits, inventing configurations that intensify the user’s spatial and temporal experience.

Discover the Serpentine Pavilion 2018, designed by Frida Escobedo

Frida Escobedo, an architect celebrated for dynamic projects that reactivate urban space, has designed the Serpentine Pavilion 2018. Harnessing a subtle interplay of light, water and geometry, her atmospheric courtyard design draws on both the domestic architecture of Mexico and British materials and history, specifically the Prime Meridian line at London’s Royal Observatory in Greenwich.

Escobedo (b. 1979, Mexico City) is the 18th and youngest architect yet to accept the invitation to designa temporary Pavilion on the Serpentine Gallery lawn in Kensington Gardens. This pioneering commission, which began in 2000 with Zaha Hadid, has presented the first UK structures of some of the biggest na mes in international architecture. In recent years, it has grown into a hotly anticipated showcase for emerging talent, from Sou Fujimoto of Japan to selgascano of Spain and Bjarke lngels of Denmark, whose 2016 Pavilion was the most visited architectural and design exhibition in the world. Serpentine Galleries Artistic Director Hans Ulrich Obrist and CEO Yana Peel selected this year’s architect, with advisors David Adjaye and Richard Rogers. The Serpentine Pavilion 2018 is sponsored by Goldman Sachs in its fourth year of support. (more…)
