Keck Lecture Hall</p><p>March 16, 2016 at 7:00pm</p><p>The reigning style of architecture today is Generic Individualism dominating large practices, global cities, and Starchitects doing icons. The opposite reasons for this are the global marketplace of Bigness versus the desire for individual and local expression. Bigness is a ground of economic warfare and zero-sum negotiation so it is no surprise that after Modernism&rsquo;s universal generic for everyone and Post-Modernist&rsquo;s mass-customisation for the individual we have reached the compromised style. One way to achieve deeper character is to focus on content, the underlying idea or that attracts client and architect into a more committed personal relationship: &ldquo;architecture is the existential act between consenting adults in public,&rdquo; an art you can stand up for. Architects such as Rem Koolhaas and Herzog &amp; de Meuron straddle the generic and personal but are still part of the growin...</p> Rice School of Architecture Spring 2016 Lecture Series: Synthetic RiceArch 2016-01-28T18:56:02-05:00 >2016-01-28T18:56:02-05:00 <img src="" width="514" height="701" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p><strong>Rice School of Architecture Lecture Series, Spring 2016: SYNTHETIC</strong></p> Chris Reed at MFAH - Rice School of Architecture/ RDA Lecture Series Spring 2016 RiceArch 2016-01-27T14:32:30-05:00 >2016-01-27T14:32:30-05:00 <img src="" width="514" height="714" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Projective Infrastructures, our lecture series with&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">The Rice Design Alliance</a>, starts today with Chris Reed of&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">Harvard Graduate School of Design</a>.

A common misconception, however, is that all green roofs will meet the entire range of performance criteria, and that they will do so in an equal manner regardless of inherent or external factors, ranging from material composition to building height, urban context, climate pattern, and ecological community, among others.&nbsp;Green roof research today has begun to identify regionally specific considerations that offer designers opportunities to differentiate between and prioritize performance criteria, and contrast alternative design configurations accordingly.

Many chart a domain within the field- contemporary architecture in Los Angeles and digital vanguard possibilities, the interests of his SCI-Arc colleagues. Others explore the neighboring disciplines of fine art, urbanism and cinema. Some imagine cross-pollinations between those worlds. Combining the methods of Charles Jencks and Rosalind Krauss, Day deploys a wide array of timelines, scenario planning &ldquo;quads&rdquo; and Expanded Field diagrams to draw connections between disparate projects and actors. Many resemble complex games of tic-tack-toe, cat&rsquo;s cradle, or target practice. Building on Day&rsquo;s more general interest in vision and architecture, these arrays are themselves exercises in envisioning and redefining the various contex...</p> EXHIBITION OPENING RECEPTION: Ellie Abrons/EADO: Inside Things sciarcnews 2015-12-17T15:36:26-05:00 >2015-12-17T15:36:46-05:00 <p>March 18 &ndash; May 1, 2016&nbsp;in the Library Gallery</p><p><strong>Ellie Abrons/EADO: <em>Inside Things </em></strong></p><p><em>A collaboration with the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA)</em></p><p>Exhibition Opening Reception: <a href="x-apple-data-detectors://1" target="_blank"><strong>Friday, March 18, 7pm</strong></a></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><em>Inside Things </em>explores architectural interiority borne from agglomeration and exaggeration. Parts seem too big for their wholes, forms don&rsquo;t quite fit together, and proto-figures combine to produce objects whose outsides don&rsquo;t quite reveal their insides. A loose association between inside and out supersedes the more typical, clear correspondence of the two. The parts allude to something familiar&mdash;figures imbued with vitality that walk the line between living things and not living things. Here, the ambiguity of formal resemblance mixes with obscure, heterogeneous materiality to produce architectural things that invite misreading and are open to interpretation but never land on intended meaning.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Ellie Abrons is an architectural designer, educator, and the principal of EADO.

An often overlooked condition of digital design technologies is the ability to design objects through continuous degrees of magnification. The consequences of this very basic fact are more significant than we may realize. The traditional premise that some architectural ideas only reside at standardized scales of magnification at this point is nostalgic. This exhibition proposes that technological advancements have resulted in a transformation of how architectural ideas unfold at different degrees of resolution and that tectonics might mean something very different in the 21st century. Related to this new power of computer assisted observation for ...</p> LECTURE: Jeffrey Kipnis sciarcnews 2015-12-17T15:32:37-05:00 >2015-12-17T15:32:37-05:00 <p>Wednesday, April 6, 7pm in the W. M.
