Architecture Inside/Out

September 19 — December 8, 2007

Galleries: Gerald D Hines Gallery, Street Gallery, Public Resource Center

Architecture Inside/Out demonstrates the unfolding of space by exposing architectural interiors through a range of typologies with an inward focus, including libraries, hotels, retail and work spaces. This exhibition challenges conventional categories and explores alternative typologies. The design of interiors has evolved into a complex and nuanced problem and addresses circulation patterns, use and adjacencies, sociologies of hierarchy and networks, and sustainability. The fully integrated interior considers light, color and materiality, but also new ways of programming space, the latest technological advances, innovative methods of construction and green practices.

Traditional representations such as section, plan and elevation, in addition to models and details will provide a lens to reveal inherent characteristics of featured interiors, exposing materials, structure and spatial relationships. Architecture Inside/Out takes the familiar architectural conventions and places them parallel to alternative ways of seeing and revealing. When these alternative methods of understanding space are applied to typologies, they provide views of the interior that shed new light on familiar places.

Inside Outside

Inside — Outside joins in the 17th Annual Jersey City Artist Studio Tour (JCAST), bringing together art by local artists in two group exhibitions. The exhibition features painting, photography, sculpture, video, textiles, performance, and more by a diverse group of artists. The multi-media exhibition at Waldo Lofts examines the ways in which the threshold between ‘In’ and ‘Out’ can be employed as a means of identification, a divisive barrier, or a conceptual model. These explorations of space include examining the interior and exterior of home, the body, domestic, shared, private, and public spaces as they relate to singular and common identities. Works in the exhibition will include a multitude of creative practices, including works that are interactive, site-specific, and appeal to multiple sensory experiences.
