Illustrator Mike Perry

Mike Perry knows how to fill a page--and beginning this week, he's filling a 2,800-square-foot exhibition space at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. The Brooklyn-based illustrator and designer, frequent Dwell contributor, and MCAD graduate arrived in Minnesota last week and began unpacking his crates of drawings and sculptures--and even a miniature house--and started setting up his solo show, Lost in the Discovery of What Shapes the Mind, opening Friday. Associate editor Miyoko Ohtake spoke with Perry by phone as he was hanging the first pieces in the exhibition space.

Landscapes of Quarantine

In the fall and winter of 2009/2010, Future Plural (the combined forces for former Dwell senior editor and BLDGBLOG author Geoff Manaugh and Edible Geography author Nicola Twilley) held a design studio in New York City focused on the idea of quarantine. The resulting work from the 18 artists, designers, and architects who participated in the studio is now on display at the Storefront for Art and Architecture as the exhibition Landscapes of Quarantine. The work on display includes infographics about invasive species, posters explaining how not to get bored while in quarantine, and maps dipicting the architectural possibilities of quarantines.

Palladio and His Legacy

Next month the Morgan Library and Museum presents a rare opportunity to see original drawings from one of the most influential classical architects in history, Andrea Palladio. Principles of symmetry, balance, and proportion all stem from Palladio's studies of Roman ruins, and his work on country villas near Venice has influenced Western architecture for centuries. Check out our slideshow to see a sneak peek at a few of the thirty drawings that will be on display, many of which haven't been seen in decades, as well as a few architectural models that will also be included in the exhibition.

Imagining Home

What is a home? There's the obvious answer of a place of residence or--at an even more elementary level--a structure that provides shelter. But "home" carries a bigger meaning than just the building in which we rest our heads; "home" is a retreat, refuge, or personal santuary. A new exhibit at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, Imagining Home: Selections for the Heinz Architectural Center, showcases more than 125 drawings, models, books, and items from the museum's archives that tell the tales of how "home" as been envisioned over the past two centuries. Here, in our slideshow, we highlight a selection of items on display at the museum through May 30, 2010.
