Join Terreform and Proyecto Helicoide for the launch of “Downward Spiral: El Helicoide’s Descent from Mall to Prison”, co-edited by Celeste Olalquiaga and Lisa Blackmore. This comprehensive volume of critical essays, testimonials, creative work, and archival photography follows the successful exhibition on El Helicoide that was held at the Center for Architecture last summer.
“Inside the Walls: Architects Design” is a survey of seminal architect-designed furniture, curated by Mark McDonald. Drawing on archival photographs of interiors and historical ephemera, this exhibition charts revolutionary developments in architecture and design across the 20th century. With representations spanning over a century, the exhibition will present a broad range of pivotal architects from the US, Latin America, Europe, and Asia.
Curated by Greg Barton, Scaffolding examines the extraordinary applications of scaffolding as a kit-of-parts technology to provide novel forms of inhabitation and access. Through an installation designed by Shohei Shigematsu and OMA New York with graphic design by MTWTF, Scaffolding will disrupt the architectural space of the Center for Architecture, instilling a new appreciation of scaffolding and its transformative potential.
Join founding Urban Omnibus editor-in-chief Cassim Shepard for his book talk. Cities are the laboratories of the future, and in Citymakers, Shepard offers a vivid survey of urbanism today, showing that it is no longer just the domain of planners, politicians, and power brokers, but of an array of citizens working at the vanguard of increasingly diverse practices, from community gardeners to architects to housing advocates.
As part of the Architectural League of New York's Current Work series, Róisín Heneghan and Shih-Fu Peng of heneghan peng architects will present their firm’s work in this public lecture.
Curated by Juan Garcia Mosqueda, “No-Thing” features commissioned works from nine emerging architectural practices: Andy and Dave, Ania Jaworska, architecten de vylder vinck taillieu, Leong Leong, Milliøns, MOS, Norman Kelley, SO – IL , and Pezo von Ellrichshausen. “No-Thing” examines the prevalence of authoritative domestic practices embedded in our collective unconscious that guides behavior towards our personal possessions.
