  • Book Presentation | Behind the Green Door: A Critical Look at Sustainable Architecture through 600 Objects

    New York | Dates: 07 Jul, 2014

    When: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM MONDAY, JULY 7

    Where: At The Center   

    Please join us for a book presentation on Behind the Green Door: A Critical Look at Sustainable Architecture through 600 Objects by Rotor, a Brussels-based collective of architects, designers, and researchers.

    Behind the Green Door: A Critical Look at Sustainable Architecture through 600 Objects is a richly illustrated critical portrait of the concrete consequences and paradoxes of sustainability as a dominating paradigm in architecture and urban planning. Drawing on a year-long investigation for the Oslo Architecture Triennale, Rotor presents and contextualizes the 600 objects gathered for its main exhibition (building models, samples, specialized construction tools, campaign posters, footage of lobbyist gatherings, etc.).

    The book also contains 300 short comments by prominent architects, critics, and scholars from around the world. The publication is presented in an accessible, visually compelling, and thought-provoking manner, and will interest engaged citizens, experts, practitioners, activists, and politicians alike.

    Co-author Maarten Gielen, a co-founder of Rotor, will present the book. Rotor is a group of people who share a common interest in material flows in industry and construction. Rotor handles the conception and realization of design and architectural projects. On a theoretical level, Rotor develops critical positions on design, material resources, and waste through research, exhibitions, writings, and conferences. The group recently curated OMA/Progress, a large exhibition on the work of OMA, at the Barbican in London. Together with Rotor's Lionel Devlieger, Maarten Gielen curated Behind the Green Door – architecture and the desire for sustainability at the 2013 Oslo Architecture Triennale.

    This program is an initiative of the Lance Jay Brown, FAIA, 2014 Presidential theme: ‘Civic Spirit:Civic Vision.’

    Organized by: Center for Architecture

    Sponsor: The reception is provided by the Government of Flanders, through Flanders House New York

  • Lymans Lost and Found: Rediscovering a Family Compound in Waltham

    Waltham | Dates: 07 Jul, 2014
    Today, two historic country estates in Waltham, Stonehurst and the Lyman Estate, are preserved to tell the story of the Lyman family and their descendants. In the past, the properties associated with five generations of this prominent family encompassed a much larger area, with many outlying structures. Some Lyman family buildings no longer exist, but others are still standing undiscovered in the community. An illustrated lecture by City of Waltham's Curator of Stonehurst Curator Ann Clifford and Historic New England Senior Preservation Services Manager Sally Zimmerman reveals what’s been lost, what’s been found, and how this extensive family compound changed over time and survives today.

    In partnership with the City of Waltham’s Stonehurst, the Robert Treat Paine Estate.

    Registration is recommended. Please call 617-994-6678 for more information. Reserve tickets now

    Monday, July 7, 7:00 p.m.
