  • CFP: Latrobe Chapter of The Society of Architectural Historians 11th Biennial Symposium of the Historic Development of Metropolitan Washington, DC

    Washington | Dates: 21 Jul – 05 Sep, 2014
    The Latrobe Chapter welcomes proposals for papers that investigate the relationship between architecture and art in the built environment of greater Washington, DC. Numerous buildings in Washington feature murals, sculpture, and video projections, as well as other types of art. How do these artworks respond to and affect the built spaces around them? Many building, structures, and landscapes themselves are conceived as artworks, sometimes to the detriment of their functional capacity and economic profitability. Does the doughnut-shaped Hirshhorn Museum designed during the 1960s classify as a sculptural object? Why did Beaux-Arts architects aspire to have their designs recognized for their artistic quality? Conversely, why have numerous artists turned to designing functional structures? Do these diverse endeavors erase the distinctions between art and architecture?

    Additionally, architects and artists, along with preservationists, public officials, and developers have used various artistic media to represent the built environment. Architectural photographs and renderings are often created with a practical purpose in mind, but they also convey other meanings through specific visual and artistic choices that influence the perception of the client or the public. What kinds of viewpoints do images selected for historical markers convey? How do they differ from the depictions used in promotional material for such projects as the McMillan Plan or from a scenic watercolor in which Montgomery Meigs captured back-yard slave quarters? In what ways did the 1939 film The City frame the town of Greenbelt and shape its public reception? How and why do presentation renderings at times mask the reality of the surrounding environment?

    The purpose of the symposium is to feature recent research and encourage discussion. We seek papers that attend to close observation and analysis of images, objects, structures, buildings, and neighborhoods in their political, social, economic, technological, and cultural contexts as the bases for understanding the complex interactions between art and architecture.

    Accepted papers will be grouped in thematic sessions to facilitate substantive comparative discussion among presenters, moderators, and the audience. All paper sessions will take place on Saturday, March 21, 2015, at the Catholic University of America. A bus tour of related sites in the area will take place the following day.

    Please send a one-page, 350-word abstract for a 20-minute paper and an abbreviated curriculum vitae by Friday, September 5, 2014, to Susanneh Bieber, biebersusanneh@gmail.com, and Susan West Montgomery, smontgomery@savingplaces.org.

    All applicants will be notified of the selection by Friday, October 3, 2014. Speakers will be required to send their final text to session moderators by Friday, January 23, 2015, who will provide comments and work with speakers to develop themes for discussion.
  • FIU Landscape Architecture Becomes FIU Landscape Architecture + Environmental & Urban Design

    Miami | Dates: 21 Jul, 2014

    As of July 2014, the FIU Department of Landscape Architecture will be known the Department of Landscape Architecture + Environmental and Urban Design (LA+EUD).

    “The words ‘Environment’ and ‘Urbanism’ communicate our focus and our program’s recognized body of work, curriculum, scholarship, research and creative activity,” said Roberto Rovira, Chair.

    Since its founding in 1986, the department has capitalized on the Miami and South Florida context to explore important issues affecting cities and environments. It has focused on the tropical and subtropical regions of the world whose global relevance Rovira is quick to point out by noting that 3 billion of the world’s 7 billion people currently live in these regions, and how this number is projected to double by 2100.  “The fastest growth is taking place in developing countries, and the majority will happen in cities and places like Miami and Latin America, where our department has focused a lot of its energy and intellectual capital,” he stated.

    Students in the program typically explore environmental, ecological and urban issues, and are asked to design public spaces, infrastructure and urban plans to address industrial reclamation, environmental mitigation, ecotourism, open space, sea level rise and many other issues at the center of the relationship between human beings and their surroundings.  As the two-time winner of the most prestigious international student awards program sponsored by the American Society of Landscape Architects (the ASLA Design Award of Excellence and the Design Honor Award), FIU projects routinely combine landscape architecture, environment and urban design to propose innovative design solutions.  Those projects specifically dealt with the redesign of an urban waterfront in the city of Colón, Panama, and a proposed park and an outdoor museum at Miami’s western edge, where the city and the natural environments come together.

    Faculty research and creative work often centers on important issues surrounding ecology, design, sustainability, and urban resilience, and is regularly recognized through grants, exhibits, books and journal publications.  LA+EUD’s faculty members have won numerous international and national competitions, and their recognition includes five professional awards from the ASLA and the American Institute of Architects (AIA), one national teaching award from the Council for Educators in Landscape Architecture (CELA), and two Research/Practice awards from the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA).

    Faculty and student work with a focus on environment and urbanism has also been recognized by the Van Alen Institute (VAI), the Graham Foundation (GF), the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA), the European Landscape Biennial (ELB), and the Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF).

    “Environmental and urban design form the core of  the program’s mission, and like the discipline of landscape architecture itself, our curriculum spans from the micro to the macro scales and operates at the intersection of human beings and the natural world,” indicated Rovira.

    The Department of Landscape Architecture + Environmental and Urban Design’s MLA degree (Masters of Landscape Architecture) is accredited by the Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board (LAAB).

  • CFP: “Craft and the Machine: Contemporary and Historical Perspectives”

    Morris Plains | Dates: 21 Jul, 2014

    Call for Papers:  The Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms and the American Fine and Decorative Arts Program at Sotheby’s Institute of Art seek submissions for the Fourth Annual Emerging Scholars Symposium to be held at the Stickley Museum on Saturday, October 18, 2014. Deadline July 21, 2014.

    “Craft and the Machine: Contemporary and Historical Perspectives”

    One of the overriding concerns of craft reformers throughout the 19th and 20th centuries was the degree to which mechanization should be integrated into craft production.  On the one hand, Irene Sargent echoed anti-machine sentiments in Gustav Stickley’s The Craftsman when she wrote “The slave of the machine must follow its movements at the peril of his health, sanity and life… He is in all things the opposite of the master craftsman…” Yet, at virtually the same time, Frank Lloyd Wright argued the opposite: “The great ethics of the Machine are as yet, in the main, beyond the ken of the artist or student of sociology; but the artist mind may now approach the nature of this thing from experience, which has become the commonplace of his field, to suggest, in time, I hope, to prove, that the machine is capable of carrying to fruition high ideals in art – higher than the world has yet seen!”  We seek papers about craft—broadly construed as both historical and contemporary work—that sheds light on the complexities of this subject.  Less a binary opposition than a strategy that reformers and practitioners employed to connect with audiences, we welcome papers from diverse periods and media that address the role of the machine in craft production.  What sort of strategies—myths even—did practitioners and reformers use?  What do these anxieties signaled by craft tell us more broadly about the cultures that produced them?

    We invite current graduate students and recently graduated scholars to submit proposals for 20-25 minute papers that critically examine these issues.  Please direct any questions to:

    Jonathan Clancy

    Director, American Fine and Decorative Arts Program Sotheby’s Institute of Art, New York jonathan.clancy@sia.edu<mailto:jonathan.clancy@sia.edu>

    Submission Guidelines:

    Please submit the following by July 21, 2014:

    ·       A one-page abstract of your topic with title.

    ·       A current c.v.

    All submissions will be reviewed by August 1 and you will receive an email with the decision about your proposal.

    Accepted proposals must submit a final draft of the paper by September 7th, 2014.

    Participants must be able to attend the symposium in order to deliver their paper.

  • Firmily Feud: An Architectural Game Show

    Dallas | Dates: 21 Jul, 2014

    Name DFW's newest architectural game show sensation? Survey says…Firmily Feud! On the heels of a wildly entertaining, highly publicized edition of Firmily Feud at Main Street Garden and just in time for summer, this edition of Firmily Feud takes the game back to its origins at The Foundry. Once again, we have polled hundreds of every-day Dallas citizens on questions related to the field of architecture and put the most popular answers on the board. This time, the task of revealing these answers goes to 4 awesome teams:

    • Milby Attorneys & Counselors - AIA Dallas Industry Allied Partner & Annual Patron Sponsor
    • Swingle Collins & Associates - AIA Dallas Industry Allied Partner & Annual Patron Sponsor
    • Rogers-O'Brien - AIA Dallas Industry Allied Partner & Annual Patron Sponsor
    • TEXO (The Construction Association) Members  

    Also back by popular demand, teams will be assisted by the "Architectural Lifeline Council" which is made up of some of DFW's most seasoned design professionals, and this time, as a first for the series, a lucky audience volunteer. Because what better way to connect with your audience than by making them part of the game?

    Each team will have to dig deep and push the limits in order to topple the competition and exert themselves as the Firmliy Feud victor. You don't want to miss this battle royale as once again the champion will take home the coveted Firmly Feud trophy, bragging rights and a well-deserved sense of entitlement.    

    Firmily Feud is free, open to the public, and at The Foundry, a winning combination for a fun and entertaining night out with friends. Be there - because if we have learned anything from the past editions of Firmily Feud - it's that anything can and will happen. 

    Start the summer off right at The Foundry July 21st at 7:00 p.m. - come out to play, drink, socialize, network and have a great time with your fellow design professionals.

    Be sure and register to join the fun!

  • Archigram’s Los Angeles: A Sentimentality for the Future

    Chicago | Dates: 21 Jul, 2014
    Archigram’s Los Angeles: A Sentimentality for the Future
    SIMON SADLER
    JUL 21, 2014, 6PM
    TALK

    Please RSVP

    The images of Los Angeles by Britain’s Archigram group are a little perplexing. Are they depicting the Los Angeles of the 1960s, or a projected Los Angeles? Los Angeles was the new locus of the urban imaginary in the vanguard circuits of 1960s London. Archigram’s projections of a future Los Angeles were, perhaps, nostalgic for California’s recent past, and really served vanguard London’s larger fantasy of spontaneous, populist, self-organized urbanism.

    Simon Sadler is Professor of Architectural and Urban History at the University of California, Davis. His publications include Archigram: Architecture without Architecture (MIT Press, 2005); Non-Plan: Essays on Freedom, Participation and Change in Modern Architecture and Urbanism (Architectural Press, 2000, co-editor, Jonathan Hughes); and The Situationist City (MIT Press, 1998). He currently coordinates the California section of the Society of Architectural Historians’ Archipedia project.
