Building Asia Brick by Brick

This two-year-long traveling exhibition and workshop is a collaboration between ArtAsiaPacific magazine and People’s Architecture Foundation. Leading Asian and Pacific architects were invited to create original architectural models from custom kits of white LEGO® bricks exhibited and auctioned to raise awareness about architectural preservation in Asia. The project engages concepts of creativity through play and issues of urbanism, new design, and heritage awareness that affect architects in a region undergoing dramatic change and development. Participating architects, Wei Wei Shannon and Andrew Gluckman of People’s Architecture, have launched the Building Asia Brick by Brick (BABB) blog featuring previews of models, exhibition sites, and documenting the design process.

BABB is traveling throughout the People’s Republic of China during 2007, and is currently in Shanghai (Daning Life Hub, Gonghexin Street, Shanghai) through August 4. The exhibition will culminate in NYC in 2008, place TBD.

Making Housing Home

Photographs with residents of New York City housing developments

Gallery: Library


Norma’s House
Gabrielle Bendiner-Viani

This photographic exhibition explores how people inhabit housing to create homes in two of New York City’s affordable housing developments, each of which were developed to provide good homes for all. Because units of housing are in essence homes for families, this project takes an interior look at what architecture can allow and support, to afford the crucial process of making space for oneself within designed spaces and housing markets. If social housing reflects the social covenant of our society, what is it to which every citizen is entitled? What does it take for a life to flourish and can a building help or hinder this process? What becomes of designed spaces once they are inhabited?

Up From Flames: Mapping the Recovery of Bushwick 1977-2007

Bushwick is one of Brooklyn’s “hottest” neighborhoods, abuzz with construction, renovation, and aspiration. However, in the aftermath of the1977 NYC blackout, rife with burning and looting, Bushwick’s recovery began. Up From Flames literally maps out the success of urban planning and community strength. The installation brings the mapping process to life — including important articles from The Daily News and The New York Times — and interviews with public officials and local residents. Painting and drawing by NYC artist Meryl Meisler are also on display.

NHNY: Best Practices for Affordable Sustainable Housing –
What worked, what didn’t?

Making Green Design More Accessible
TBD, CES 1.5, HSW

Power House illuminates the people, projects, and public policies that fuel the affordable housing landscape in New York City.

As New York City’s first juried design competition for affordable, sustainable housing, the New Housing New York Legacy Project (NHNY) is generating creative, replicable approaches to urban development. The exhibition focuses on the NHNY competition and sets it within the context of the city’s efforts to preserve and development sustainable, financially viable residences for low- and middle-income New Yorkers. The show’s emphasis is on the future of housing in the city, as represented by the competition winner, Phipps Rose Dattner Grimshaw (Phipps Houses / Jonathan Rose Companies / Dattner Architects / Nicholas Grimshaw & Partners), the four finalists, and the development mechanisms put in place by Mayor Bloomberg’s 10-year New Housing Marketplace initiative and the Department of Housing Preservation and Development.

Building on the 2004 New Housing New York Ideas Competition, the 2006 two-stage contest will result in construction of the winning design on a 40,000 square-foot Bronx site, which is valued at $4.3 million and was donated by The City of New York.

Reoderant

“Reodorant” is a multi-sensory installation created by Hisako Inoue (artist), Erik Carver (architectural designer), Howard Huang (sound artist), Takashi Sato (perfumer), and Yuka Yokoyama (curator). The team investigates what lies between culture, perception, and memory in an attempt to rewrite subjectivity through sensory stimulation: a memory-reactive-device simultaneously channeling smell, sound, light, and architecture. Wandering through soft forests of smell and sound, one’s memories are gradually called up and put into motion. You are meant to lose sense of yourself. You have been “Reodorized.”

Preservation as Provocation

The Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) presents the winners of its 2007 international student competition. The aim was to rethink architectural pedagogy in light of the increased importance of historic preservation in today’s professional practice. The winners demonstrate how knowledge of historic preservation can elevate design by encouraging thoughtful responses to the critical aesthetic, technical, cultural, political, economic, and climactic challenges of our times.

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.

NHNY: Best Practices for Affordable Sustainable Housing –
What worked, what didn’t?

Making Green Design More Accessible
TBD, CES 1.5, HSW

Power House illuminates the people, projects, and public policies that fuel the affordable housing landscape in New York City.

As New York City’s first juried design competition for affordable, sustainable housing, the New Housing New York Legacy Project (NHNY) is generating creative, replicable approaches to urban development. The exhibition focuses on the NHNY competition and sets it within the context of the city’s efforts to preserve and development sustainable, financially viable residences for low- and middle-income New Yorkers. The show’s emphasis is on the future of housing in the city, as represented by the competition winner, Phipps Rose Dattner Grimshaw (Phipps Houses / Jonathan Rose Companies / Dattner Architects / Nicholas Grimshaw & Partners), the four finalists, and the development mechanisms put in place by Mayor Bloomberg’s 10-year New Housing Marketplace initiative and the Department of Housing Preservation and Development.

Building on the 2004 New Housing New York Ideas Competition, the 2006 two-stage contest will result in construction of the winning design on a 40,000 square-foot Bronx site, which is valued at $4.3 million and was donated by The City of New York.

Making Housing Home

Photographs with residents of New York City housing developments

Galleries: Library


Norma’s House
Gabrielle Bendiner-Viani

This photographic exhibition explores how people inhabit housing to create homes in two of New York City’s affordable housing developments, each of which were developed to provide good homes for all. Because units of housing are in essence homes for families, this project takes an interior look at what architecture can allow and support, to afford the crucial process of making space for oneself within designed spaces and housing markets. If social housing reflects the social covenant of our society, what is it to which every citizen is entitled? What does it take for a life to flourish and can a building help or hinder this process? What becomes of designed spaces once they are inhabited?
