YBCA's "Remember the Times"

Bay Area artist Lauren DiCioccio's "Remember the Times" is currently on view at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA) in San Francisco. DiCioccio's work transforms the banal objects of our everyday lives into carefully crafted works of embroidery. Newspapers, playing cards, spiral notebooks, water bottles and shopping bags are reincarnated as soft sculptures of felt and thread.

Arch Students Build a Hive

This semester I had the opportunity to teach the first studio for the new three-year MArch grad program at Woodbury University with Rebecca Rudolph, in coordination with Kelly Bair (who taught the Visualization seminar). Together we compiled a series of projects investigating architecture at a range of scales from the city to the detail. The final project of the semester is a collaborative project with all the students pitching in together to create a single installation at Woodbury’s Hollywood space, recently renamed WUHo, in an exhibition coordinated by Christian Stayner. The show, Super! Show, is on view until mid-January, along with a series of other exhibitions by Woodbury students; an installation by Molly Hunker and Greg Corson; an experimental film series programmed by Vera Brunner-Sung; and a project curated by Stayner and Jayna Zweiman entitled "13.3% is an exasperated reply to those who say: 'there are no women making architecture.'"

Hyundai Ride and Drive

Recently Dwell partnered with the Hyundai Sonata Uncensored campaign, an interactive, traveling exhibit designed to welcome visitors to a unique space where they could learn more about the Hyundai brand. As part of the collaboration, Bay Area designer and architect Christopher Deam created an installation piece called The Porch, a modern hangout for guests to take a load off, sip a beverage, and learn a little bit about modern design and the Hyundai Sonata. We caught up with Deam as he shared his inspiration behind his design.

Carol A. Wilson Architect, HOUSE ON MERE POINT

Maine Modern

I am very excited to announce that Philip M. Isaacson, owner and resident of the house we featured in our October Off the Grid and longtime architecture critic for the Maine Sunday Telegram has been awarded the Maine Prize for Architecture. It's awarded biennially and seeks to "acknowledge an architect, an individual, or an organization that has added significantly to the legacy of Maine building and to the Maine community in the belief that architecture plays a meaningful part in our lives." Congratulations to Philip, and in another nod to the fine crop of modernists who have lived and worked in the Pine Tree State, here's selection of images from the exhibit Maine Modern: 50 Years of Modern Architecture in Maine. The show runs only through October 31st (rush out and see it!) but you'll certainly appreciate the homes whose images are on view at the Storefront for Archtiecture in Portland all year long. Hurray for Maine! I also just learned that the exhibit has been extended by two weeks to November 13th. Go see it, New England.

MoMA's Small Scale, Big Change

The exhibition "Small Scale, Big Change" opens at the Museum of Modern Art in New York this Sunday. Curious to hear more about the show—which sadly I won't have the chance to see in person—I got curator Andres Lepik on the phone to talk about the exhibition, which focuses on 11 architectural projects in underserved communities around the world.

The Art of Structure

Last weekend, The Art of Structure opened at the Carnegie Museum of Art Heinz Architectural Center. Dedicated to feats of modern engineering, the exhibition features 20 scale models of bridges and slope-y structures accompanied by the drawings and notes that lead to their creation and is the combination of two other shows: Félix Candela: Engineer, Builder, Structural Artist and The Art of Structural Design: A Swiss Legacy. The exhibit runs September 25 through January 17, 2011.

New Topographics

New Topographics at the SFMoMA

On Saturday, July 17, New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape opens at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The exhibit is a restaging of the 1975 show New Topographics, which featured landscapes as a combination of natural and built structures, a departure from the traditional way of depicting vast vistas as comprising exclusively natural forms a la Ansel Adams. The exhibition includes nearly 150 photographs representing the works of all ten of the photographers originally displayed in the show. New Topographics is on display through October 3 and throughout its duration—and afterward—you can watch a slideshow of images from the exhibit here.
