- Few forms of reading leave a physical reminder of the act itself, but to page through the two volumes of collected newsprints from Storefront for Art and Architecture is to truly feel and see the ink…
This design from Restoration Hardware might be the classiest of the lot. Perfect to match your leather wingback chair and mother-of-pearl letter opener.
49 cities is a call to re-engage cities as the site of radical thinking and experimentation, moving beyond ‘green building’ towards an embrace of ideas, scale, vision and common sense combined with delirious imagination in the pursuit of empowering questioning and re-invention.
The Storefront for Art and Architecture is inaugurating their 2010-2011 exhibition season with The Bridge Project, a new chapter in the Perfect Home project by Do Ho Suh, an artist known for his post-minimalist sculptural works that grapple with notions of home, place, site, and memory.
Over the past two years Do Ho Suh and his team of researchers, architects, and designers have created conceptual bridge designs to connect Seoul and New York. Using different technologies, structures, and forms Suh contends with the issues of climate, biodiversity, and human activity. This conceptual project, which roots back to Do Ho Suh’s first drawings of this inhabitable bridge in 1999, proposes to build a bridge that joins two homes into one, connecting the spatial, temporal, psychological, and cultural distance between Seoul and New York.
An opening reception will be held on September 14th at 7:00 PM, and the exhibition runs until December 7th, 2010.
Postopolis! LA is a live 5-day blogathon of back-to-back discussions, interviews, panel talks, slideshows, films and parties with scheduled and unscheduled guests, themed around landscape and the built environment.
An exhibition exploring the spaces of quarantine:
From Chernobyl's Zone of Exclusion to the artificial quarantine islands of the New York archipelago, and from camps set up to house HIV+ Haitian refugees at Guantánamo Bay to the modified Airstream trailer within which returning Apollo astronauts once waved at President Nixon, the landscapes of quarantine are as varied as they are unexpected.
Landscapes of Quarantine features new works by a multi-disciplinary group of eighteen artists, designers, and architects, each of whom was inspired by one or more of the physical, biological, ethical, architectural, social, political, temporal, and even astronomical dimensions of quarantine.

During the exhibition, a series of quarantine-inspired dinners will be hosted at the gallery. As envisioned by Michael Cirino of A razor, a shiny knife, the events will feature quarantine-aged meats, layered encapsulated flavors and other themed edibles. Ticketing details will be announced soon.
