Javier Irturbe: Architect and Painter

Javier Iturbe is a self-taught artist whose work expresses his personal philosophy. Buildings, figures, violins, butterflies, and other elements interlock and overlap to create a metaphorical pastiche. Born in Bilboa, Spain, in 1945, Iturbe’s paintings are bold in color and form and resemble a sprawling jigsaw puzzle. While the characters and forms are easy to discern, interpreting the relationship between them is usually left up to the viewer.

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?

Exhibited are five, three-story-tall “scenic backing” paintings from the studio era of the 1940s and 50s, recreating views of NY including the U.N. (from “North by Northwest” — the actual painting Cary Grant ran in front of) and the old Penn Station. Many of these artifacts have never been seen before in public.

New New York: Fast Forward

The Architectural League of NY presents the fifth in ongoing series of exhibitions highlighting new architecture in NY. A snapshot of the changing city, this exhibition serves as an opportunity to evaluate and inform the current wave of redevelopment, and hopes to encourage more informed discussion. The centerpiece is a gallery-sized map, an aerial photograph of the five boroughs, featuring more than 500 projects, ranging from single buildings to neighborhood rezoning, now under construction or being planned. In addition, the exhibition looks at three areas that are undergoing particularly significant change: High Line District, Bronx River Greenway, and Spring Creek Housing. Included is a series of videotaped interviews with a cross-section of NY architects, ranging from emerging designers to internationally-recognized figures.

CCCP — Cosmic Communist Constructions Photographed

During the course of his travels in the former Soviet Union over the past five years, French photographer Frederic Chaubin has documented architectural artifacts born during the last 20 years of the Cold War. Some architects in the peripheral regions of the Eastern Bloc countries, working on governmental commissions during the 1970s and 1980s, enjoyed a degree of creative freedom, drawing inspiration from expressionism, science fiction, early European modernism, and the Russian Suprematist legacy. As well as presenting the architecture itself, the exhibition traces the intellectual and political undercurrents.

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.

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?

Redesigning the Edge: MWA and the One River Project

Focusing on the dynamic zones in cities where land and water meet, Redesigning the Edge illustrates innovative ways to reinvigorate urban waterways. Preserving the cultural and architectural history of urban waterways, while improving access and ecological health, requires a new approach to the water’s edge. Drawings, images, and text present ways to enhance the natural and social functions of city wet zones developed by the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance (MWA) for the Harlem River in NYC, and by the One River Project for the Blackstone River in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

The Shapes of Space

Exploring various ways artists from the early 20th century through the present have conceived and represented space, this exhibition will open in stages through the spring and summer of 2007, timed to coincide with the ongoing restoration of the Guggenheim’s Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building. Drawing from the museum’s permanent collection, the exhibition combines works from different time periods in unexpected juxtapositions to reveal surprising affinities. Among other highlights, on view are several large-scale, immersive installations by Pipilotti Rist, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and Piotr Uklanski that transform the site of the museum and reorient the viewer in space.

FamilyDay@theCenter: Schools of the Future

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.

The current exhibition is organized by:

AIA New York Chapter Committee on Architecture for Education, Umberto Dindo, AIA, Chairman ETH Zurich / Center
for Cultural Studies in Architecture (CCSA), Martin Schneider, scientific associate, dipl. arch. ETH Zurich

The exhibition is a site-specific presentation of a traveling exhibition originally organized by: ETH Zurich / Center for Cultural Studies in Architecture (CCSA), City of Zurich Building Authority, School and Sport Authority, and the Zurich University of Teacher Education.
