Gallery: Kohn Pederson Fox Gallery, HLW Gallery, South Gallery

Today’s educators require flexible spaces that can satisfy multiple functions and future demands and they are in need of spaces that enhance modern teaching as well as a student’s personal development. Communities request to share facilities and services, and changing social patterns require new services at schools. In response, architects design schools that feel, look and function differently, having become learning and community centers. It’s a new architecture for a new education. This exhibition illustrates this process and the schools that have been built in the course of it. It contains 31 examples of recently built or designed schools from Zurich Switzerland along with examples from Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, and Austria. It facilitates a dialog among educators, architects, and the community, strikingly similar to the efforts than have been made in New York over the past few years. It will make for an interesting and fruitful dialog. Click here to see a complete list of all schools showcased in the exhibition.

Visual Echo

Gallery: Gerald D. Hines Gallery

This interactive light installation acts as a meandering ribbon of light by remembering the colors visitors wear. While also recording the rhythm and frequency of visitors, the ribbon transforms the viewer’s perception of space. Using cutting edge LED tiles, this work by Jason Bruges Studio demonstrates exciting new potentials and questions how light, space and color can interrelate in architectural space.
