The work of Glen Small, the 'hesitant' father of Green Architecture is on display until the end of November.</p> <p> The organizer and curator of the exhibit, <a href="http://assemblyof.com" target="_blank">Assembly</a> and Archinect's own <a href="http://archinect.com/orhan" target="_blank">Orhan Ayy&uuml;ce</a>, has put together a smart, focused, visual overview that also includes several lectures, workshops, a book and a screening of the documentary film <em>MY FATHER THE GENIUS</em>.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/81465615/a-review-of-joe-day-s-corrections-and-collections-architectures-for-art-and-crime-2013-routledge A review of Joe Day's "Corrections and Collections: Architectures for Art and Crime" (2013, Routledge) John Southern 2013-09-10T11:25:00-04:00 >2013-09-16T15:25:46-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/mz/mzg9huocwc6ta43b.jpg" width="514" height="386" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> <em>&ldquo;Since 2000, institutions of display and discipline have taken on transnational dimensions, many of them unanticipated and controversial.&nbsp; In the most literal of convergences, yesteryear&rsquo;s prisons have simply been reopened as today&rsquo;s museums.&rdquo;</em></p> http://archinect.com/features/article/78446579/the-science-fiction-of-never-built-los-angeles The Science Fiction of "Never Built: Los Angeles" Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2013-08-01T17:16:00-04:00 >2013-08-08T12:58:43-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/6c/6cuodwmouqmwywbo.jpg" width="514" height="242" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> What can we learn from the aborted potential icons of Los Angeles? Whether underfunded, over-dramatic or anachronistic, the structures on display in "<em>Never Built: Los Angeles</em>" at the Architecture and Design Museum in L.A., never saw the light of day. But because they were the twinkle in the eye of a few established names in post-war American architecture, such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra and John Lautner, these imaginings are vetted with their creators' robust reputations for modern, revolutionary forms. Seen with a 21st century perspective, jaded by the likes of Frank Gehry or Bjarke Ingels, it's actually pretty easy to imagine these never-built structures existing -- at least in terms of form, anyway.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/57481963/instigating-change-with-common-ground Instigating Change with Common Ground John Southern 2012-09-18T10:16:00-04:00 >2012-09-30T19:17:46-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/sb/sbtpvtmbt204176u.jpg" width="514" height="759" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> In the age where cultural production has usurped industrial production as the driver for Western economies, the Venice Architecture Biennale represents a special kind of affair.&nbsp; This three month-long bonanza of architecture and urban design represents a collection of diverse principles produced under a unified curatorial umbrella.&nbsp; Despite the trash-talk that has proliferated in certain circles since the opening of the event in late August, this year&rsquo;s Biennale doesn&rsquo;t have much to be cynical, negative, or nasty about.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/8302721/next-series-architecture-jury-a-factual-and-fictional-manual NEXT SERIES: ARCHITECTURE JURY, A Factual and Fictional Manual Orhan Ayyüce 2011-05-31T16:53:46-04:00 >2012-01-04T17:46:41-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/x0/x0q888nr7pvt43vd.jpg" width="514" height="282" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> To spectators, the architecture jury critics might mean deities if they don't know they are not. In fact, some students know this but it is a best kept secret so they can stand back and watch the divine comedy folding out on the first rows of their presentation. Not all students take criticism personally although it is hard not to.</p> <p> Most architecture schools are the continuation of the traditional model, design studios taught by people who are, if you say so, spatial experts. In general, architecture education is defined by how to draw and produce space. Most people in the world can say something about buildings. Naturally, architects use a unique vocabulary to control and develop their craft.</p> <p> I was asked if I would write a piece on architectural juries. After thinking about it for a few hours I came up with this idea of subjectively stereotyping the people who sit in front of the presentations and say 'wise' things about student projects. I hope this will help the audience and...</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/79984/venice-biennale-review Venice Biennale Review Martina Dolejsova 2008-09-16T17:58:00-04:00 >2012-12-10T19:09:03-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/m5/m5tjate82smx5g7y.jpg" width="514" height="303" border="0" title="" alt="" /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html>
