There was an exciting list of shows at the Banvard Gallery last year. Authors of Pamphlet Architecture 27: Tooling, Aranda/Lasch put together a visually arresting show comprised of slide projection, Stratasys models, folded paper models, and exquisite drawings of their research into algorithmic patterning.
Soo Sunny Park brought a fresh perspective from the world of Sculpture, with a materially rich exhibition of chain-link fence, steel studs, plastic cups, yarn, digital prints, retroreflective glass beads, and custom lighting. The show was titled "Modified Thoroughfare" and engaged the topics of epigenetics, dislocation, and transience.
Our customary annual LeFevre fellow exhibition was provided by Liam O'Brien, a young architect with an impressive body of work with his own practice as well as with collaborative practice ACRONYM. His opening was well intended and many were heard gawking over his impressive graphic abilities as well as the rigor with which his research into fenestration patterns and programmatic adjacencies is conducted.
