  • 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.

    TIME SPACE EXISTENCE

    As part of the 14th International Architecture Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia, the Collateral Event  “Time Space Existence” at Palazzo Bembo and Palazzo Mora presents architects from 6 continents, brought together in an extraordinary combination. 

    This exhibition documents current developments and thoughts in architecture, highlighting fundamental questions by discussing the philosophical concepts Time, Space and Existence. An international group of architects with different cultural backgrounds and who are in different stages of their careers, i.e. established architects next to architects whose works might be less known. What they have in common is their dedication to architecture in the broadest sense of their profession.

    The exhibition shows a large diversity of presentations (models, concepts, research results, dreams, hopes and ideas), combining classical architectural presentations with surprising artistic elements. All presentations are either site-specific, especially made for this exhibition or coming directly from the architect’s studio. 

    The two locations each have their particular atmosphere. The 32 rooms in Palazzo Bembo mainly highlight solo-presentations, by architects such as Ricardo Bofill, AHMM, GMP and White arkitekter, or research projects such as that of the University of Houston. With its typical Venetian features, Palazzo Mora will show a variety of architects within its grand spaces, such as the sculpture by Eduardo Souto de Moura. 

    With their structures, architects often have an enormous impact on the way we humans experience our surrounding, experience Time-Space. They influence our daily existence and leave a mark on the earth from this current Time and often this 'mark' even outlives the architect himself. Architects should be very conscious about the impact their activities and decisions have on people and other living beings as well as on our environment as a total. By combining different architectural thoughts and approaches, this exhibition aims to enlarge our human awareness of our own personal existence as a human being within a specific space and time.

  • 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).

  • Who Pays for Public Space?

    New York | Dates: 24 Jul, 2014

    We are witnessing the rollout of new and improved public spaces around the five boroughs of New York. The work of the previous administration got the ball rolling in claiming roadways for pedestrian use, including Broadway Boulevard and Times Square. The DOT Plaza Program, continued POPS, greenways from the Highline to Queensway, and others all confirm a growing interest in the value of open space. This said, who pays for all this? Who initiates and raises capital and financing and how is maintenance built into the many different configurations described above? These are the questions the panel will address.

    This panel will be presented in conjunction with the Open to the Public: Civic Space Now exhibition at the Center for Architecture, on view from June 12 - September 6, 2014 and is an initiative of the Lance Jay Brown, FAIA, 2014 Presidential theme: ‘Civic Spirit:Civic Vision.’

    Speakers:
    Diana Balmori, Ph.D., FASLA, IFLA, Founder, Balmori Associates
    Jerold Kayden, Professor of Urban Planning and Design, Harvard University Graduate School of Design
    Emily Weidenhof, NYC Plaza Program Director, NYC Department of Transportation 

    Moderator: 
    John Shapiro, Chair, Pratt Institute Graduate Center for Planning and the Environment

    Organized by: Center for Architecture

    Price: Free for AIA members and students with valid student ID; $10 for non-members

  • COPIES, COPYRIGHT, and PRESERVATION CFP - Future Anterior Journal

    Dates: 18 Jul – 15 Sep, 2014
    Future Anterior approaches historic preservation from a position of critical inquiry, rigorous scholarship, and theoretical analysis. The journal is an important international forum for the critical examination of historic preservation, spurring challenges of its assumptions, goals, methods, and results. As the first journal in American academia devoted to the study and advancement of historic preservation, it provides a much-needed bridge between architecture and history. The journal also features provocative theoretical reflections on historic preservation from the point of view of art, philosophy, law, geography, archeology, planning materials science, cultural anthropology, and conservation. Future Anterior is essential reading for anyone interested in historic preservation and its role in current cultural debates.

  • Biophilia in the Built Environment

    Seattle, Los Angeles, and San Francisco | Dates: 29 – 31 Jul, 2014

    Biophilia means "love of life." Humans have a biological need to experience a daily connection with nature. Yet, today people spend on average 90% of their time indoors. While this new reality challenges this human-nature connection, there is opportunity to invite nature indoors through biophilic design.

     
    Research points to the many benefits of creating these connections and helps substantiate the business case for applying it. Daylight and views of nature are correlated with improved learning performance for students, healing times for hospital patients, productivity in office employees and retail sales growth.

    This application is of particular interest to Glumac. As engineers, we are fascinated by human-nature relationships and strive to continually broaden our understanding of the money-saving impact they can have for our clients’ projects.

    To share our interest in biophilic design, Glumac is hosting a StraightTalk forum in partnership with nationally acclaimed green building and biophilic design expert, Bill Browning of Terrapin Bright Green, LLC. Joining Bill will be Susan Painter, Ph.D. Senior Planner and Research Studio Director at AC Martin (for the Seattle and LA events), Bert Gregory, Chairman and CEO of Mithun (for the Seattle event), and Gail Brager Ph.D., Associate Director at the Center for the Built Environment, UC Berkeley (for the San Francisco event).
