  • Edge Criticism: The Impact of Criticism on Practice

    New York | Dates: 29 Jun, 2015

    This is the fifth in a series of events related to the presidential theme of Tomas Rossant, AIA, "Dialogues from the Edge of Practice." The theme intends to explore how architects are boldly enlarging the purview of the practitioner to bring their particular critical problem solving skills and design acumen to endeavors previously considered outside the traditional scope of practice. There has never been a time when the role of the architect has been more relevant as an instrument to shape culture, society, and positive environmental outcomes. “Dialogues” will engage the practitioners amongst us who are breaking rules, trying new things, and taking new risks—expanding the impact of the architect—and disseminate their experiences to our professional community.

    "Edge Criticism: The Impact of Criticism on Practice" will explore the contemporary state of architectural criticism. What is the purpose of architectural criticism? How do we measure its impact today? How has the expansion (and dissolution) of media modes affected the content? Do architects care about criticism? The public needs to be educated on the value that architecture can bring to improving their lives and its role in shaping civil society. Architects need criticism to stimulate them to pursue ever more progressive ideas. Critics need to be both populist yet focused on impacting the profession directly.

    This event was preceded by a think tank roundtable discussion with thought leaders deeply involved with architectural criticism.
     
    Price: Free for AIA members and students; $10 for non-members.

  • Tour: Peterson Residence

    Seattle | Dates: 19 Jul, 2015

    Directions will be sent to registered participants by email the week prior to the tour.

    This whimsical Storybook-style, late Craftsman house, with its dramatic full-pitch roofline and massive stone chimney has had only two owners. In 1936, Norwegian immigrant Emil Peterson built the house for himself and his wife Vollea. Peterson was a sign maker who pioneered neon signage in Seattle and was involved with constructing the P-I globe. Emil and Vollea collected the stones for the outside of the house and transported them to the site. A friend, who worked for the Works Progress Administration (WPA) as a stonemason and helped to build Mt Rainier’s Paradise Inn, did the stonework for them. Emil painted the rosemaling floral decorations in the traditional Norwegian folk style around the inside of the turret entrance to the house and on the wooden slats on the staircase. More of Emil’s fine rosemaling is in the kitchen. Current owners have preserved the house and also created stunning woodland gardens.

    Cost:
    $45 general public / $35 members / $20 students

  • Lecture: Artists, Architects and Artisans: Canadian Art 1890–1918

    Seattle | Dates: 24 Oct, 2015

    Artists, Architects and Artisans: Canadian Art 1890–1918 was a groundbreaking exhibition at the National Gallery of Canada last year, looking at the interaction among artists, architects, and artisans, as well as critics and collectors from 1890-1918. Deriving their goals from both the Beaux-Arts and Arts & Crafts movements, practitioners of the various arts encouraged an aesthetic that saw art manifest in all aspects of daily life. It was an aesthetic stimulated and enhanced by international art currents.

    Painters produced murals and architects designed furniture; clubs formed to bring writers, musicians, artists and architects together; and collectors and governments commissioned paintings, furnishings, and sculpture for public and private buildings. Photography rivaled painting and crafts became applied design. Curator of Canadian Art Emeritus Charles Hill explores how architecture, monumental sculpture, urban planning, mural and decorative painting, graphic design, decorative arts, and photography came together in Canada during these prosperous decades.

    Charles Hill began work at the National Gallery of Canada in 1972 and was appointed Curator of Canadian Art in 1980. His exhibitions include Canadian Painting in the Thirties (1975), John Vanderpant Photographs (1977), To Found a National Gallery: The Royal Canadian Academy of Arts 1880- 1913 (1980), Morrice A Gift to the Nation, The G. Blair Laing Collection (1992), William Kurelek (1992), The Group of Seven: Art for a Nation (1995), Tom Thomson (2002), Emily Carr: New Perspectives on a Canadian Icon (2006), and Artists, Architects, & Artisans: Canadian Art 1890-1918 (2013). He has had a consistent interest in the relationships between art and society and in the integration of art in the public and private sphere. Hill was appointed a member of the Order of Canada in 2000 and received an Honorary Doctorate from Concordia University, Montreal, in 2007.

  • Tour: The Architecture of Agriculture

    Seattle | Dates: 27 Jun, 2015

    Join Julie Koler, retiring King County Preservation Officer, on a day tour of significant heritage sites in the Snoqualmie Valley to focus attention on the importance of preserving remnants of the county’s agricultural roots and conserving open space as the area adapts to the demise of large scale dairying.

You will come away with a new appreciation for the changing dynamics of farming, promising new programs to support preservation of historic resources, and the Snoqualmie Tribe’s work in the Valley, as well as discussion of archaeology and the work that King County is doing to prepare for climate change.

    Cost:
    $175 general public / $150 members / $75 students

  • Emerging Talent Models of International Practice: Flourishing Spanish Architecture

    New York | Dates: 25 Jun, 2015

    Emerging talents from Spain have made headlines, winning numerous competitions including MoMA PS1’s Young Architects Program, Guggenheim Helsinki, ENYA City of Dreams, and the Quang Ninh Museum in Vietnam. A new model of practice is emerging in a country still feeling the effects of the 2006 property bubble. Recently, economic momentum has enabled a new emerging class of Spanish architectural talent to find commissions outside of Spain in a new model of networked international practice: a talent migration out of necessity.

    What is the value of talent migration in architecture today? How do local architecture communities benefit from the arrival of foreign talent? Will talent migration and diversity synergies be the bases for a new model of international practice? Do new generations count on the support of public programs and holistic platforms to promote this architectural cross-exchange? How can we establish global dialogues in architecture?

    Concurrent with the exhibition of seven Spanish practices whose work flourishes outside the nation’s borders, Architect-US Professional Career Program, a new training platform for highly qualified and talented international architects, will draw together participants from the exhibition and top architectural firm leaders to discuss the basis of a new model of international practice and the need for platforms that encourage cross-pollination and global dialogues in architecture.
