Ryan Dewey | Oct 28

lectures_fall 2016_dewey

This week we welcome Ryan Dewey to our Fall Lecture Series. He will be speaking at the CUDC this Friday, October 28th,  at 12 PM. His talk is titled, “Landscaping the Deep Future”, is a land art project that speculates at how we can harness future climate conditions for human-geologic collaborations after human extinction by exploring formal relationships between supply chains and geologic forces. Supply chains already are a kind of geologic force in that they move natural materials faster and farther than nature ever could, this project makes use of that acceleration to prime landscapes for phase changes and activation at the transitions of deep future climactic regimes.

Charles Waldheim | Oct 6

lectures_fall 2016_waldheim

Charles Waldheim is a Canadian-American architect and urbanist. Waldheim’s research examines the relations between landscape, ecology, and contemporary urbanism. He is an author, editor, or co-editor of numerous books, including the soon to be published, Third Coast Atlas. Join us on October 6, 2016 at 5:30 PM. This event is free and open to the public, but RSVP is requested.

glbimagejpg

Measuring over 10,000 miles, the Great Lakes coastline, known as the “third coast,” is longer than the Atlantic and Pacific coastlines of the United States combined. It is difficult to overstate the history and future of the region as both a contested and opportunistic site for urbanism. Envisaged as a comprehensive “atlas,” this publication comprises in-depth analysis of the landscapes, hydrology, infrastructure, urban form, and ecologies of the region, delivered through a series of analytical cartographies supported by scholarly and design research from internationally renowned scholars, photographers, and practitioners from the disciplines of architecture, landscape, geography, planning, and ecology.

_0004_Image_05 _0002_Image_03

Following Waldheim’s presentation, there will be a panel discussion with several contributors to the Third Coast Atlas, including:

 Steve Litt, art and architecture critic at the Plain Dealer will moderate the discussion.

Sara Zewde | Sept 06


lectures_fall 2016_sara_z

We are excited to kick off our Fall Lecture Series with Sara Zewde, Designer at Gustafson Guthrie Nichol. Sara’s talk, “Design at the Margins of the Urban Renaissance”, will be at the CUDC on Tuesday, September 6th, from 12 -1 PM.

Urbanism is in the midst of a renaissance. Many cities are witnessing large investments in urban infrastructure, development, and civic institutions — even those whose populations are not increasing. Yet still, the design associated with this renaissance provokes tension. Design projects by Zewde located in Houston and Rio de Janeiro will be presented as a departure point for a dialogue on resolving this tension, and pushing design towards a more robust, and culturally relevant, practice.

Sara Zewde is a designer at Gustafson Guthrie Nichol. She holds a Master of Landscape Architecture from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design, a Master of City Planning from MIT, and a BA in Sociology and Statistics from Boston University. Sara was named the 2014 National Olmsted Scholar by the Landscape Architecture Foundation and a 2016 artist-in-residence at the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation. Sara writes and lectures in the discourses of landscape architecture and urbanism and is the recipient of a number of awards, including the Silberberg Memorial Award for Urban Design and the Hebbert Award for Contribution to the Department of Urban Studies and Planning at MIT.

Concurrent to working at Gustafson Guthrie Nichol, Sara continues independent design work in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Houston, Texas; and New Orleans, Louisiana.

5×5 : Participatory Provocations | Exhibition at CUDC July 11 – August 24

20160321 5x5-27

5×5 : Participatory Provocations is an exhibit of 25 architectural models by 25 young American architects. 5 contemporary issues, each addressed by 5 firms. It will be exhibited at the CUDC from July 11 – August 24. There will be an opening reception at 5:30 PM on July 11th, along with a panel discussion with curators Kyle May, Julia Van Den Hout, and Kevin Erickson, as well as participants, Michael Abrahamson and Jonathon Kurtz.

Architecture as a profession struggles to simultaneously engage with the public and be provocative within the confines of its own field. Either arguments and proposals get “dumbed down” or they simply aren’t accessible or relevant. This exhibit argues for participatory criticism. Twenty-five young architects engage in a series of significant popular issues, taking clear stances and producing a physical expression or provocation as a means of communicating with a larger public. Each team responds to one of the five prompts — contemplating the future of drone deliveries, the consequence of the construction of extreme luxury highrises as financial investments, luxury tourism on the moon, the fictional development of NSA community branches, and the potential construction of an anti-immigration wall on the border between the United States and Mexico.

The avant-garde in architecture has for decades captured its imaginations via two-dimensional representations, but this exhibit asks architects to be just as provocative in three dimensions. Each team produces only a single model and short text on one of the prompts. The selected topics intend to provoke, but are grounded in issues we face today. Architecture has a seat at each discussion.

20160321 5x5-26

5×5: Participatory Provocations is curated by Kyle May, Julia Van Den Hout, and Kevin Erickson. 

Kyle May, principal at KMA, which he founded in 2014. He also co-founded CLOG in 2011, where he is the Editor in Chief. He is a registered architect in New York and Ohio. He is a graduate of Kent State University’s College of Architecture and Environmental Design, where he completed the Master of Architecture program at the CUDC.

Julia Van Den Hout is founder of Original Copy, and co-founder and Editor of CLOG. As Original Copy, she is currently producing TEN Arquitectos’s new monograph, as well as a book on expos and world’s fairs centered around the Milan Expo 2015. Prior to founding Original Copy, Julia was the Director of Press and Marketing at Steven Holl Architects for six years, where she was responsible for developing and coordinating the PR strategy for over 30 projects and competitions, organizing the opening and publication of 12 completed projects, and the coordination of multiple traveling exhibitions. She has a Master’s Degree in Design Criticism from the School of Visual Arts in New York City.

Kevin Erickson is a designer in New York City (KNE studio), and an Associate Professor in the School of Architecture at the University of Illinois. He is on the Program Leadership Council at the Van Alen Institute, was a Visiting Professor at the Mackintosh School of Architecture in Glasgow, and an Artist-in-Residence at the Geoffrey Bawa Lunuganga Trust in Sri Lanka.

Future City Sessions: Aging in Cities | Matthias Hollwich

matthias_hollwichOn June 23rd at 5:30pm, the CUDC will host architect Matthias Hollwich. Matthias recently published the book with Bruce Mau Design called New Aging: Live Smarter Now to Live Better Forever.

New Aging investigates and applies recent advances in architecture and urbanism to address age-related challenges that assures the best utilization with the utmost dignity for age. There are 17,000 Medicare and Medicate certified nursing homes in the United States, which basically store old people away. Some of these places are decorated to seem “home like” with floral wallpaper and vinyl wooden floors, but these homey touches do not disguise the fact that our culture shuns the aged and prefers them out of sight. We are interested in the alternative. From “Geropolis, the city of the elderly” to “BOOM” our research is intellectual, human, and architectural. – Matthias Hollwich

New-Aging_web-1-1200x800

Matthias Hollwich is the co-founding principal of progressive New York architecture firm Hollwich Kushner (HWKN) and Architizer, the largest platform for architecture online.

Having previously led design teams within internationally acclaimed firms such as Rem Koolhaas’ Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA), Eisenman Architects, and Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Matthias has established himself at the forefront of a new generation of ground-and rule-breaking international architects.

Combining his understanding of how architecture and cities can perform better with his research as a visiting professor at the University of Pennsylvania, Matthias has developed a new line of thinking about how to make aging an empowering process. He has since shared this message at events for TEDx, PICNIC, the World Health Organization, and the New Aging conference at University of Pennsylvania.

The event is free and open to the public, but RSVP is requested. **Please note: Dr. Margaret Caulkins was initially scheduled to be a co-presenter at this event. Do to an unforeseen conflict, she will not be able to participate. A recorded version of her presentation will be available on the CUDC website following the event. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Thursday, June 9th the CUDC will welcome Ernesto Jiménez and Sofía Márquez Aguiar, architects at the Fabrica de Arte Cubano (FAC) in Havana, Cuba. Ernesto and Sofia will present their architecture projects built in both Havana, Cuba and in Oporto, Portugal. Based on their experience as professional architects inside and outside Cuba, Ernesto and Sofia will share insights on potential collaboration between designers in Cleveland and Havana. The first half of the talk is titled, “Fabrica de Arte Cubano – A Never Ending Project”. They will discuss the history of the building that now serves as the headquarter of the cultural Fabrica de Arte Cubano (Cuban Art Factory) project. This path is indispensable to understand the logic of intervention from conceptualization to its ever-unfinished realization. Unfinished because the project has the idea of mutation embedded since its genesis. The mutation generated by the fusion of all the arts.
