    Mr. and Mrs. Milton Hirsch residence, built in 1961

    Join us for an afternoon reception in an iconic work of Mid-Century Modernism. 

    The Hirsch house features a curving plan, based on a segment of a circle. A finely detailed custom home, it includes numerous built-ins, skylights, and of course the trademark Keck window vents. Curving hallways connect zones of activity. Built on a steep wooded bluff that drops to Lake Michigan, the house complements the spectacular site and takes advantage of the northeastern view toward the lake.

  • Civic Foundation Legends in Italian Art

    Kalamazoo | Dates: 14 – 17 May, 2015
    Nearly every Italian civitas created one or more foundation narratives that glorified and advertised its origins. In Florence, for example, an anonymous writer drafted a chronicle circa 1200 that recounted the city’s ancient past and the heroic exploits of its early leaders. In the trecento, Giovanni Villani expanded upon the story and embellished it with the addition of fanciful anecdotes. Other major centers, such as Arezzo, Perugia, and Bologna, formulated similar narratives, which told of conquering Romans or the noble Etruscans before them. In the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, civic legends—typically a conflation of history and myth—were already being promoted and disseminated through art and architecture, long before the age of Coluccio Salutati and Flavio Biondo. In cities that had actually been founded in antiquity, such artworks commonly served to enhance or exaggerate the historical truth, often with propagandistic intent. Other cities, such as Siena and Venice, were not established until the Middle Ages and thus found themselves in the difficult position of having to invent their ancient pasts. In Siena, the communal authorities adopted the Roman she-wolf as the primary symbol of the Republic by the middle of the duecento, and it was systematically replicated in painting and sculpture, including on the exterior of public buildings, until the end of the Renaissance period.

    The Italian Art Society will host three sessions in which scholars investigate the artistic programs of Italian cities in the medieval and early modern eras as they relate to their foundation legends. These sessions aim to advance our understanding of the interrelation between civic identity and visual culture while exploring the complex sociopolitical circumstances underlying the manufacture and propagation of historical narratives. Papers addressing questions of patronage, historiography, iconography, political ideology or cultural interchange would be especially welcome.

    Please submit a paper proposal to the organizer, Max Grossman (megrossman@utep.edu) Deadline: September 15, 2014

  • Prairie School Design Workshop

    Oak Park | Dates: 28 Jul – 01 Aug, 2014

    (Prerequisite: Youth Architecture Workshop Level I)

    Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie style is characterized by its geometric designs, horizontal lines, lack of ornamentation, and simple hipped roofs. The style was born and developed in Wright’s Oak Park studio, where participants in this workshop will design, draw to scale, and construct a model of a two-story Prairie style residence. They will also learn the geometry of designing a hipped roof and will present their projects to parents and friends at an architectural critique. To experience the Prairie style for themselves, students will tour Wright’s Robie House, one of the most important buildings in the history of American architecture. A professional architect will provide instruction and guidance.

    Maximum capacity for this session is 12 students.

  • Emerson and Whitman: The Poets Who Inspired Wright

    Oak Park | Dates: 04 Sep, 2014

    Transcendentalism had a profound influence on Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural practice as well as that of Louis Sullivan, who Wright deemed his “Lieber Meister,” or beloved master. Through a presentation by scholar Karen Karbiener and readings of poetry written by Ralph Waldo Emerson and Walt Whitman, this program will provide background on the religious and philosophical movement that permeated American art, architecture, and literature in the nineteenth century. The program will be presented at Unity Temple, one of Wright’s greatest public buildings. Designed from 1905-1908 for the congregation of Oak Park Unity Church, the building reflects the ideals and religious philosophy of Unitarianism, especially as the religion relates to Emerson’s transcendentalist concepts of individualism and self-realization.

    Karen Karbiener is a scholar of nineteenth century American literature and culture. She teaches at New York University and Columbia University and has written and lectured extensively on Walt Whitman's life and writings. A recipient of the John H. Kluge Fellowship at the Library of Congress, a Fulbright grant and a Huntington Library Fellowship, Karen has worked in several different mediums:  she edited Barnes & Noble Classics’ Leaves of Grass: First and Death-bed Editions, recorded a lecture series entitled “Whitman and the Birth of Modern American Poetry” (Modern Scholar), and has contributed to several audio/visual programs including PBS’s American Experience: Walt Whitman documentary and the Harvardx online course, "Poetry in America: Whitman." As a public scholar, she organizes events such as New York’s annual “Song of Myself” marathon (in its eleventh year in 2014) and has curated exhibitions such as “Whitman and the Promise of America, 1855–2005” (South Street Seaport Museum). She is completing a book entitled Walt Whitman and New York.

  • Reason & Intuition: Alvar Aalto & Ola Kolehmainen in Soane

    London | Dates: 04 Jul – 24 Aug, 2014

    Reason & Intuition: Alvar Aalto & Ola Kolehmainen in Soane brings together the work of modernist architect and designer Alvar Aalto, and contemporary Finnish artist Ola Kolehmainen. The exhibition will be split between Pitzhanger Manor and the gallery - Alvar Aalto’s creations will fill Soane’s dream home acting as a counterpoint to the historic rooms, whilst in the gallery Ola Kolehmainen will explore space and the built environment in a collection of monumental large-scale photographs.

    Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) was a central figure in international modernism with a career running from the 1920s through to the 1970s. He was the most important Finnish architect of the 20th century and his design skill reached into every corner of his buildings, including the interior surfaces as well as consideration of the design of furniture, lamps, furnishings and glassware. Aalto’s sculptural, and highly functional, furniture produced in the 1930s remains influential and very popular today. Reason & Intuition will feature around forty Aalto creations, including chairs, tables, lights, glassware and textiles, as well as glassware designed by his first wife and collaborator, Aino. Visitors to the exhibition will be able to sit at an Aalto table, on Aalto chairs and pore over his original designs, photographs and plans for private houses. Among the designs featured in the exhibition will be the Paimio Chair (1931-2), a combination of moulded wood and plywood, the sculptural Beehive ceiling lamp (1953). In addition, we are privileged to include the work of Finnish glassblower Santeri Pöytäniemi, who has recreated specially for this exhibition an Aalto vase which was originally shown at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. In the bedroom, visitors can also watch artist Elena Näsänen's film Passerby in which a young Japanese woman spends an entire day in Helsinki photographing Aalto buildings.

    As Aalto’s work fills Pitzhanger Manor, three distinct collections of photography by Ola Kolehmainen will take over the gallery: his acclaimed, abstract, Aalto-influenced architectural images (featuring elements of Aalto buildings), as well as a new body of work exploring the Siena Cathedral in Italy (a building highly regarded by Aalto) and his most recent images of significant mosques within Istanbul.

    Kolehmainen’s Aalto photographs depict sections of buildings, examining the strictly ordered rows of repetitive patterns and elements of symmetry – these works sit well in the 1939 modernist gallery which has taken its cue from the original Soanian architecture. Meanwhile, the complex new images are theatrical and epic in scale, with a nod to architectural history and even classical painting. Kolehmainen’s work in Istanbul is a particular departure for a photographer who previously hadn’t concentrated on any building built before 1920. Both the Siena and Istanbul works have at their heart the volume of the buildings and the task of depicting the empty spaces within the structures – the photographs are no longer about simplification as he had to let the buildings speak for themselves. Reflections are particularly significant in Kolehmainen’s work and a way of bringing the warmth of the natural world into man-made structures; trees, clouds and people are all reflected on the surfaces of buildings, in swimming pools and inside the Siena Cathedral. The works are produced using the Diasec process, which means that the environment is reflected in the surface of the photos as well as in the images themselves.

    Reason & Intuition is a collaboration between Pitzhanger Manor House & Gallery, the Alvar Aalto Museum and The Finnish Institute in London, with kind support from Skandium and iittala, FrameVisual Art Finland and Arts Promotion Centre Finland.

  • Mobile Homestead

    Los Angeles | Dates: 29 May – 28 Jul, 2014

    Mobile Homestead is a public art project by Mike Kelley. The mobile section, a facade on wheels, is designed to carry out public service when detached from its permanent "residence", a full scale replica of Kelley's childhood home, permanently installed at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit. Now, for the first time, this traveling section will be activated outside of Detroit, in downtown Los Angeles, and on site at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA where it will host social services and community initiatives from May 29 through July 28, 2014. Mobile Homestead in Los Angeles is made possible by Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts.

    Mobile Homestead covertly makes a distinction between public art and private art, between the notions that art functions for the social good, and that art addresses personal desires and concerns… It has a public side, and a secret side.” – Mike Kelley, 2011

  • Beyond the Supersquare

  • Terence Gower: SuperPuesto

    Bronx | Dates: 17 Jul – 16 Nov, 2014

    uperPuesto is a temporary pavilion by Terence Gower commissioned by The Bronx Museum of the Arts in collaboration with the Andrew Freedman Home for Beyond the Supersquare, the first U.S. museum exhibition to examine the complicated legacies of modernist architecture in Latin America and the Caribbean through the perspectives of 30 contemporary artists. With the goal of providing an immersive space for visitors to experience the exhibition’s artistic and architectural themes, SuperPuesto also serves as an annex for educational and public programs related to Beyond the Supersquare.

    SuperPuesto applies the sharp, clean forms of modernist architecture to the rudimentary building technology of the puesto, the traditional market stalls found throughout Latin America that have become the face of the informal economies prevalent in the region. Drawing from the iconic form of Marcel Breuer’s House in the Museum Garden, a commissioned structure exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art’s sculpture garden in 1949, SuperPuesto explores the connections between the European-influenced modernist movement that emerged in Latin America after 1945, and the informal economic systems that contrast the progressive ideals promoted in the region during this period.

    Location: Andrew Freedman Home Garden, 1125 Grand Concourse between 166th and McClellan Streets, Bronx

    Open for viewing Thurs - Sun  12pm to 6pm

    When: 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 6

    Where: Green Light New York 31 Chambers Street, Suite 609 New York, New York 10007

    The adoption of more stringent energy codes in New York City has caused many owners and developers to look to the sky for help, and the answer has come in the form of daylight. Green Light New York is working to push the envelope of daylighting in commercial office spaces through the deployment of advanced daylighting controls. In their report Let There Be Daylight, they indentified the various energy saving, technical and economical potentials involved with daylighting in New York, including policy and incentive recommendations aimed to kick start the adoption of advanced daylighting controls. Green Light New York has also partnered with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to develop a pair of demonstration spaces in Bank of America's office at One Bryant Park and in Goldman Sachs' office at 200 West Street. These "living labs" will monitor electrical consumption, including plug loads, to compare the pre-retrofit performance with the monitored control space. During the program, speaker Yetsuh Frank will explore the findings of the report and discuss the status of the ongoing demonstration projects.

  • The Children Town

    Brussels | Dates: 16 May – 31 Dec, 2014

    Designed for children and their families, it aims to increase awareness of the architecture and planning of Brussels among the widest possible public. 

    The exhibition offers an interactive and educational approach to the city and its components - its shops, houses and apartments, leisure facilities, offices and parks - organized into four sections: “living”, “learning”, “playing” and “working”. With plans, drawings, models and photographs from the Archives d’ Architecture Moderne, the exhibition will present the city in a way that is of interest to children as well as adults. In particular, a series of games and an educational booklet will allow young visitors to participate in the exhibition experience to the full.

    At the centre of this reconstituted city, the “mini-museum” will focus on a particular theme or element of the city and its heritage, such as planning, sgraffitti or the utopia of the city. The subjects will be varied and change periodically, as in a real museum.

    The central exhibition room - devoted to the home and presenting a giant model – will allow young and old alike to discover and learn about the external and internal elements of our homes - dormer windows, baluster, bull’s eye, etc. – by way of an introduction to the vocabulary of architecture. If they identify the elements, the house lights up!

    Exhibition realised by the Fondation pour l'Architecture with the support of the Minister-President responsible for Monuments and Sites and the State Secretary responsible for Town Planning of the Brussels-Capital Region
