CURRENT EXHIBITIONS

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.

Synthesized Space

A two-part exhibition includes Artificial Landscapes: Noboru Ota, open through September 14, and Fingering, open through November 23. Artificial Landscapes explores digital tectonics — the study of an imaginary landscape’s inner structure. A site-specific installation, light acts as the mechanism for the sculpture, which allows viewers to interact with the projected, three-dimensional floating sphere illuminated by a two-way projection. Fingering is a reactive video installation that tracks a viewer. A Chinese woman holding a ‘finger-gun’ aims at the moving viewer and will ‘fire’ if the viewer stays completely still for more than 7 seconds in front of her. Visual and audio effects relate to psychological, corporeal, and virtual landscapes in digital technology.

The Park at the Center of the World: Five Visions for Governors Island

Galleries: Edgar A. Tafel Hall

Five Visions for Governors Island

The exhibition features five landscape architecture and architecture teams selected to present their design visions for the future open spaces on Governors Island, the 172 acre Island off the tip of Manhattan. Governors Island’s open space will include the two mile Great Promenade that provides outstanding views of Lower Manhattan and New York Harbor, a new park, and restoration of the landscape in the Island’s National Historic District. Showcasing conceptual and illustrative designs by the five teams for the open space of Governors Island, the exhibition provides a platform for public feedback before the jury will take place in late June 2007. A design team will be selected by mid summer.

Choreographing Space

Architect/Choreographer Eva Perez de Vega Steele and architect Ian Gordon, who collaborate as e+i architecture, have been awarded a grant by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council to produce Choreographing Space, a site-specific installation that explores the intersection of architecture, dance, and the moving image. The project merges built form, dance performance, and films by emerging choreographers. By enveloping the gallery space with an interactive mesh capable of transformation, the project becomes both architectural space and performance event that engages performers and viewers, oscillating between static and dynamic states. Free performances occur every Saturday at 6:00pm, and the installation is on view Thursdays and Saturdays, 12:00-7:00pm, and Fridays 6:00-8:00pm.

Design: Isamu Noguchi and Isamu Kenmochi

This exhibition looks closely at the friendship and collaboration between designer Isamu Kenmochi, who is credited with creating the “Japanese modern” style, and Isamu Noguchi, acclaimed sculptor and designer. Some 85 items borrowed from collections in the U.S. and Japan, as well as two specially created replicas of now-lost chairs, are on display. Together, the furniture, design objects, drawings, and photographs show how Kenmochi and Noguchi systematically pushed the boundaries that separated both tradition from modernism and hand crafting from mechanical production.

Bus Stand

Prototypical Street Furniture for Installation Citywide — Newsstand, designed by Grimshaw Architects/Cemusa for the NYC Departments of Transportation (DOT) and Consumer Affairs (DCA).

Garretted away on the third floor of City Hall the Art Commission of the City of New York is NYC’s design review agency, an organization that has widespread influence over the five boroughs despite being hidden from view. The agency’s directive is to review permanent works of art, architecture, and landscape architecture proposed for city-owned property. Its scope includes construction, renovation or restoration of buildings, such as museums and libraries, creation or rehabilitation of parks and playgrounds, installation of lighting and other streetscape elements, and design, installation, and conservation of artwork.

The Art Commission was established in 1898 and for the past 25 years it has presented awards of excellence. Out of approximately 300 projects in review, this year the Commission selected 10, which are currently showcased at Art Commission Awards for Excellence in Design now on view at the Center for Architecture.

The Commission also honored Michael Friedlander, a 25-year veteran of the Department of Sanitation and its director of special projects, with a Special Recognition Award for the quality of design he brings to the department’s capital projects. As part of this award he is cited for the two Manhattan projects that he submitted to the commission last year — construction of a salt shed at West 55th Street and 12th Avenue, and a garage at 543 East 73rd Street.

“The 10 winning projects exemplify the ideas of high-quality and innovative public design, and their sponsoring agencies and architects should be very proud of their accomplishments,” Mayor Bloomberg proclaimed in a statement issued by the Office of the Mayor. This is evident in the exhibition at the Center, where you can view all of the award winning projects while sitting on a real bus stop bench — a component of the new bus stop shelters, newsstands, and automatic self-cleaning toilets designed by Grimshaw Architects/Cemusa for the NYC Departments of Transportation (DOT) and Consumer Affairs (DCA).

Projects of the Department of Design + Construction (DDC), in collaboration with architecture firms, garnered five awards: Department of Homeless Services with Polshek Partnership Architects (DHS Family Center, Bronx); the Fire Department of NY (FDNY) with Polshek Partnership Architects (Rescue Company 3 Firehouse, Bronx); the FDNY with Dean/Wolf Architects (EMS Station 50, Queens Hospital Center); the Queens Library with Marble Fairbanks (Glen Oaks Library, Queens); and the DOT and the DCA’s Percent for Art Program with artist Nobuho Nagasawa and Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architecture (Columbia Waterfront District, Brooklyn). The Department of Parks and Recreation with Toshiko Mori Architect’s Poe Park Visitor Center, and the DOT, Port Authority of NY and NJ, and Department of Parks and Recreation with artist Elyn Zimmerman’s CaVaLa Park are also on view. All of these projects except CaVaLa Park and the Columbia Waterfront District are part of the DDC’s Design + Construction Excellence program.

The Park at the Center of the World: Five Visions for Governors Island

Galleries: Edgar A. Tafel Hall

Five Visions for Governors Island

The exhibition features five landscape architecture and architecture teams selected to present their design visions for the future open spaces on Governors Island, the 172 acre Island off the tip of Manhattan. Governors Island’s open space will include the two mile Great Promenade that provides outstanding views of Lower Manhattan and New York Harbor, a new park, and restoration of the landscape in the Island’s National Historic District. Showcasing conceptual and illustrative designs by the five teams for the open space of Governors Island, the exhibition provides a platform for public feedback before the jury will take place in late June 2007. A design team will be selected by mid summer.
