The Space Beside the Skate Park

Architecture for Humanity installed a pop up in New York City for two weeks, creating an unlikely plaza next to a skate park and underneath the Manhattan Bridge. Called The Urban Web, it's a sensory, geometric, and eye catching design that draws residents into a space they'd otherwise overlook—one overshadowed by the bustling streets of Chinatown, the roar of the Manhattan Bridge overhead, and the highly trafficked skate park.

'Moving Meshes' at Domaine de Boisbuchet

Mesh and wireframe structures might typically be reserved for the architectural design realm, but Dutch designer Maria Blaisse aims to expand the rules of textiles and flexible materials with her long-standing commitment to movement research. Blaisse's latest exhibition, Moving Meshes, highlights the resilience of bamboo as a medium for expanding and contracting volumes, which are based on improvisational gestures and the body as the critical element in the animation of material and form. Currently on view in the château interiors of Domaine de Boisbuchet, an international center for experimentation in design and architecture, Blaisse's work is a fluid exploration of volume and spatial control—quite modern for the setting of a country estate in the Southwest of France.

Bard Graduate Center founder and director Susan Weber

In the Material World: Susan Weber

Long before Peggy Guggenheim bought her first Jackson Pollock, the Wittlesbach Dukes of Bavaria were snapping up antiquities. Before Philip Johnson’s Glass House or even modernism, the movement, existed, architecture of the Iranian-Sassanian tradition was revered for its innovative domed constructions. The Bard Graduate Center: Decorative Arts, Design History, Material Culture (BGC) may not the only place in Manhattan where you can delve deeply into such scholarly subjects, but it is certainly the most influential. Susan Weber founded the center (with $20 million of her then-husband George Soros’s money) in 1993 “to advance the recognition of the decorative arts as one of the primary expressions of human achievement.”
