August 11 - 29, 2015
The AA Visiting School Lyngør took place in August on an island off the southern tip of Norway. The program developed the role of the architect as one not only focused on ‘the new’ but on meaningfully responding to the existing. Students studied the relationship between historical precedent and proposed architectural interventions, looking at Lyngør’s distinct built environment as it battles with changing social, environmental, political and cultural currents. The workshop explored key threads of Nordic architecture, as well as those of a small island community.

Measure was a New York summer exhibition of 30 drawings by 30 international architects presenting 30 edifices of thought. Storefront’s third annual drawing show sought to find measures, resist measurement, and measure the immeasurable by presenting the real to the fictional and the functional to the symbolic. Measure positioned the medium and the act of drawing as a process by which we seek coherence in data and representation.
