Selldorf Architects is a 65-person architectural design practice founded by Annabelle Selldorf in New York City in 1988. The firm creates public and private spaces that manifest a clear and modern sensibility to enduring impact. Since its inception the firm’s guiding principles have been deeply rooted in humanism — in the individual experience. At every scale and for every condition, the work of Selldorf Architects is brought to life—and made complete—by those who use it.
 
The firm’s clients include cultural institutions and universities such as the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the Clark Art Institute, Neue Galerie New York, Pratt Institute and Brown University. In addition, the firm has created numerous galleries for David Zwirner, Hauser & Wirth, and Gladstone Gallery among others, and designed exhibitions for the Whitney Museum, Gagosian Gallery, Frieze Masters, and the Venice Art Biennale. Residential design is also an integral part of the firm’s portfolio having realized the ground-up construction of large condominium buildings, custom private homes, and renovations of townhouses and individual apartments.
 
Award-winning projects include the recently completed 30,000 sf LEED Gold Gallery building (the highest environmental rating a new building can achieve in New York) which is the first LEED certified commercial gallery in the U.S. for a second David Zwirner location in Chelsea; as well as Sunset Park Material Recovery Facility, a new recycling facility and education center on the Brooklyn waterfront – the largest of its kind in the United States. The firm’s renovation of The Clark’s Museum Building opened to critical acclaim in 2014. In spring of 2016, the newly renovated Steinway Hall opened a 17,500 sf flagship showroom for Steinway & Sons which includes a retail showroom, a 72-seat recital hall, recording studio, and concert artists’ space. Selldorf Architects is currently designing an expansion for the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego and is converting a former rail depot into LUMA Arles, a new contemporary art center in Arles, France.
 
Annabelle Selldorf, FAIA, is the Principal of Selldorf Architects. Born and raised in Germany, she received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the Pratt Institute and a Master of Architecture degree from Syracuse University. Ms. Selldorf is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, and serves on the boards of the Architectural League of New York and the Chinati Foundation. In 2014, she was the recipient of the American Academy of Arts and Letters’ Award in Architecture and in 2016 she received the  Medal of Honor from the American Institute of Architects New York Chapter. Selldorf Architects’ new monograph, “Selldorf Architects: Portfolio and Projects,” was published by Phaidon Press in the spring of 2016.

Places of a Present Past

Noah Simblist, a curator, writer, and artist, presents “Places of a Present Past:The Historiographical Impulse in Art Practice.” In this context, the artists that Simblist discusses act as historians. However, these artist-as-historians are “less interested in the truth than the way we feel through the legacies of past traumas. They reveal the oblique ways that we repress historical trauma, burying it in the very sites of their origin,” says Simblist. His talk focuses on a publication that he edited, Places of a Present Past,whichbrings together three exhibitions showcasing the work of video and new media artists working internationally that were presented at SMU’s Pollock Gallery in 2014, curated by Simblist and the Pollock Gallery’s 2014 curatorial fellow, Sally Frater. These exhibitions shared a common theme: addressing the traces of trauma on particular sites and paying close attention to the lasting impacts of war. The exhibitions explored in the publication include Jin-me Yoon’s Extended Temporalities; the group show Where Are You From?, which included artworks by Aissa Deebi, Kamal Aljafari, and Dor Guez recounting the story of the Israeli occupation of Palestine; and the Sarah Morris film 1972.

Noah Simblist is Chair and Associate Professor of Art at SMU’s Meadows School of the Arts. His artwork has been shown internationally; he has curated, co-curated, and co-produced exhibitions and events, including, most recently, New Cities Future Ruins in Dallas in 2016; and he has contributed to Art Journal, Modern Painters, Art Papers,Terremoto, Art Lies, Art Pulse, Art21, and other publications. He has contributed to and edited publications, including Beyond the Aesthetic and the Anti-Aesthetic and Public Servants: Art and the Crisis of the Common Good, and is in the process of editing a volume about Tania Bruguera’s The Francis Effect, a project co-produced by the Guggenheim Museum, the Santa Monica Museum of Art, and SMU.

An Empire on Parade: Art and Architecture of the Texas Centennial Exposition March 14

Texas Centennial architecture

Art Deco Experts Jim Parsons, David Bush Headline Heritage Auctions’ Art & Design Speaker Series

An Empire on Parade: Art and Architecture of the Texas Centennial Exposition to be Discussed March 14

Dallas-basedHeritage Auctions recently launched a new Art & Design Speaker Series and the second installment will be heldMarch 14, at the Dallas Design District Showroom, 1518 Slocum Street. Entitled An Empire on Parade: Art and Architecture of the Texas Centennial Exposition the event will feature award-winning Art Deco authors Jim Parsons and David Bush speaking about art and architecture of Fair Park – the public spaces, buildings, sculptures and murals that were designed for the 1936 exposition.  The authors will bring the Centennial Exposition to life in their illustrated lecture, discussing Fair Park’s distinctive buildings and artwork and the stories behind their design.

“Creating the Art Deco art and architecture of Fair Park for the 1936 Texas Centennial Exposition was a monumental task in the depths of the Great Depression — in fact, the exposition’s promoters coined a word, ‘Texanic,’ to describe its scope,” said Jim Parsons. “Today, Fair Park houses one of the world’s largest collections of Art Deco buildings, and it is the only surviving fairgrounds from the golden age of world’s fairs.”

A native of Baytown, Texas, Jim Parsons, puts a passion for the state’s history and architecture to work as director of special projects and walking tours chairman for Preservation Houston who has also written about and photographed cities across the United States. David Bush was born and raised in New Orleans, where he developed his lifelong interest in historic architecture. Jim and David are co-authors of three award-winning books about Art Deco architecture in Texas: Houston Deco, Hill Country Deco and Fair Park Deco. Their fourth book, Dallas-Fort Worth Deco, is due for a late summer release by TCU Press of Fort Worth.

“Our goal with the speaker series is to engage the North Texas design community with thoughtful and informative presentations relating to design trends and key influencers. The March event featuring award-winning authors and Art Deco experts Jim Parsons and David Bush will further elevate the Speaker Series as a must-attend event for North Texas designers and collectors,” said Ed Beardsley, Vice President of Heritage Auctions.

The Art & Design Speaker Series is designed to entertain and inform North Texas designers and art collectors about new design trends, discuss developments in the art community and introduce clients to interesting art and designer personalities. The March 14event which will begin at 6 p.m. will also highlight the upcoming March 17-19 Through the Modernist Lens: A Distinctive Hollywood Collection of Art Deco and 20th Century Art auction. A book signing will follow the presentation and Q&A session.

The inaugural event of 2017 featured nationally known interior designer John Phifer Marrs speaking about Clients with a Dream: Creating Beautiful Interiors for Collectors in February and was a resounding success.

Art and Culture in Spain and Spanish Naples, 1600-1700
Four Fridays, February 3 – March 3, 10:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Adam Jasienski, assistant professor of art history, SMU

meadowslectureseries2(opening March 12). A careful analysis of specific artworks by Ribera and his contemporaries will situate the artist within the broader context of the global Iberian empire, in which his chosen hometown of Naples played an integral role. Some of the themes examined will include Ribera’s confrontation with the legacies of Caravaggio and Domenichino, his penchant for violent scenes of martyrdom and suffering, the appeal of his stark realism, and his creation of images that were both effective religious objects and cutting-edge contemporary artworks. Coffee and pastries served in the Founders Room before each lecture at 10 a.m.

 

Advance registration required. $50 for the 4-part series; free for Museum members, SMU staff, faculty and students. To register, please call 214.768.8587.

Gordon Gill is one of the world’s preeminent exponents of performance-based architecture.  His work, which ranges from the world’s largest buildings to sustainable communities, is driven by his philosophy that there is a purposeful relationship between formal design and performance, and that there is a language of performance, which is the basis of his practice:  Form Follows Performance.  Gill is a founding partner of the award-winning firm of  Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, whose work includes the design of the world’s first net zero-energy skyscraper, the Pearl River Tower, and the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa (both designed while at SOM Chicago).  The firm has also designed the world’s first large-scale positive energy building, Masdar Headquarters, and what will be, upon completion in 2020, the new title-holder as the world’s tallest tower, Jeddah Tower in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.  Most recently the design of Astana Expo 2017 and its sustainable legacy community for Astana, Kazakhstan was developed.  These landmark projects pursue energy independence by harnessing the power of natural forces on site and striking a balance with their environmental contexts.  Gill’s designs also include performing arts centers, museums, strategic carbon planning and urban master plans across the globe.
 
Gill’s work has been published and exhibited widely in the U.S. and internationally and his designs have repeatedly been recognized by the American Institute of Architects.  In 2009 he was selected as Chicago’s Best Emerging Architect by the Chicago Reader and in 2013 Gill was elected to The College of Fellows at the American Institute of Architects.  Gordon Gill earned a B.S. in Architecture at Ryerson University, then earned a Master in Architecture at the University of Texas at Arlington and an additional Master of Architecture at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard.

AGA KHAN AWARD FOR ARCHITECTURE
PRESENTATION BY SHIRAZ ALLIBHAI
DEPUTY DIRECTOR, AGA KHAN TRUST FOR CULTURE
Geneva, Switzerland
 
24 October 2016
Monday, 7:00 pm, Reception and check-in from 6:15 – 6:55 pm
Horchow Auditorium, Dallas Museum of Art
 
Free Event, Open to the Public, No Reservations Needed
Presented in Partnership with The Aga Khan Council for the Central United States
 
The Aga Khan Award for Architecture is unique among architecture prizes: it selects projects – from slum upgrading to high rise “green” buildings – that not only exhibit architectural excellence but also improve the overall quality of life. Over the last four decades, it has steadfastly championed the needs and aspirations of human beings within the practice of architecture. The Award is also different because it not only rewards architects but also identifies municipalities, builders, clients, master craftsmen and engineers who have played important roles in the realization of a project.  The selection process emphasizes architecture that not only provides for people’s physical, social and economic needs, but that also stimulates and responds to their cultural expectations. Particular attention is given to building schemes that use local resources and appropriate technology in innovative ways, and to projects likely to inspire similar efforts elsewhere. Through its efforts, the Award seeks to identify and encourage building concepts that successfully address the needs and aspirations of societies across the world and set new standards of excellence in architecture, planning practices, historic preservation and landscape architecture. Over the course of the last 39 years, most of the great architects of our time have either won the Award or served on its Master Jury or Steering Committee, from Zaha Hadid to Norman Foster, Charles Correa to Frank Gehry and Jean Nouvel.

All forms of planning practice in urban as well as rural contexts are encouraged. Large projects and long-term initiatives that are not yet fully completed – such as master plans, area preservation projects, and community upgrading schemes, among others – are eligible so long as a tangible portion of the project has been completed in a manner that demonstrates its long-term potential success and viability.

The projects, which were selected by the Master Jury from among 348 projects nominated for the 13th Award cycle, competed for US $1 million in prize money. The 19 projects underwent rigorous investigations by on-site reviewers – architects, conservation specialists or structural engineers themselves – who visited and evaluated each project firsthand. After this thorough evaluation, the six final prize winners for this completion were announced October 3, 2016.

Presented by UTA CAPPA in collaboration with The Dallas Architecture Forum
 
Gordon Gill is one of the world’s preeminent exponents of performance-based architecture.  His work, which ranges from the world’s largest buildings to sustainable communities, is driven by his philosophy that there is a purposeful relationship between formal design and performance, and that there is a language of performance, which is the basis of his practice:  Form Follows Performance.  Gill is a founding partner of the award-winning firm of  Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, whose work includes the design of the world’s first net zero-energy skyscraper, the Pearl River Tower, and the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa (both designed while at SOM Chicago).  The firm also designed the world’s first large-scale positive energy building Masdar Headquarters, and the world’s tallest tower, Kingdom Tower in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Most recently the design of Astana Expo 2017 and its sustainable legacy community for Astana, Kazakhstan was developed.  These landmark projects pursue energy independence by harnessing the power of natural forces on site and striking a balance with their environmental contexts.  Gill’s designs also include performing arts centers, museums, strategic carbon planning and urban master plans across the globe.
 
Gill’s work has been published and exhibited widely in the U.S. and internationally and his designs have repeatedly been recognized by the American Institute of Architects.  In 2009 he was selected as Chicago’s Best Emerging Architect by the Chicago Reader and in 2013 Gill was elected to The College of Fellows at the American Institute of Architects.  Gordon Gill earned a B.S. in Architecture at Ryerson University, then earned a Master in Architecture at the University of Texas at Arlington and an additional Master of Architecture at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard.

Kai-Uwe Bergmann is Managing Partner at BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) who brings his expertise to projects around the globe, including work in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Kai-Uwe oversees BIG’s projects in over 20 different countries.  BIG is a Copenhagen and New York-based group of architects, designers, builders, and thinkers operating within the fields of architecture, urbanism, interior design, landscape design, product design, research and development. The office is currently involved in a large number of projects throughout Europe, North America, Asia and the Middle East. BIG’s architecture emerges out of a careful analysis of how contemporary life constantly evolves and changes. Not least due to the influence from multicultural exchange, global economic flows and communication technologies that all together require new ways of architectural and urban organization. BIG believes that in order to deal with today’s challenges, architecture can profitably move into a field that has been largely unexplored. Like a form of programmatic alchemy BIG creates architecture by mixing conventional ingredients such as living, leisure, working, parking and shopping.  
 
Registered as an architect in the USA (eight states) and Canada, Bergmann most recently contributed to the resiliency plan The DryLine to protect 10 miles of Manhattan’s coastline. He complements his professional work through previous teaching assignments at the University of Florida, the New School of Architecture in San Diego and his alma mater the University of Virginia. Kai-Uwe Bergmann also sits on the Board of the Van Alen Institute, participates on numerous international juries and lectures globally on the works of BIG.  Among BIG’s many projects are the Danish Maritime Museum; Superkilen, a public park in Copenhagen; the Zira Island master plan; Lego House Museum; and Europa City in Paris.  Among projects currently under construction are the DryLine, an integrated flood protection system in NYC; Two World Trade Center; and the Google Corporate Headquarters.

DCP Speaker Series: Creative Partnerships Sept. 29

Speaker Series Grant and Klein

Dallas Center for Photography and Texas Photographic Society are delighted to present an evening of inspiring lectures by two incredibly talented artists married with cameras: Susan kae Grant and Richard Klein.

Susan will discuss her creative process and show examples of “Night Journey” which represents a collaboration of artistic and scientific inquiry into the nature of dreams and memory. Her fascination with accessing otherwise unobtainable states of consciousness led her to work with sleep researcher Dr. John Herman in a laboratory to conduct REM sleep awakenings as inspiration to create her work. Grant’s images conjure up fairy tales and nightmares while deliberately portraying a sense of surprise and wonder.

Richard will share his insights as a location photographer specializing in creating beautiful images of hospitality. Known as a master of cinematic lighting, he will show examples of 25 years shooting internationally on the Pacific Rim from Tokyo to New Zealand as well as in Africa, the UK, Europe, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Klein’s goal when shooting is to interpret what it feels like to be in the space using light and composition to create the illusion of 3D depth into the 2D picture plane.

The evening will conclude with a panel discussion moderated by Texas Photographic Society Executive Director Amy Holmes George addressing the intersections between their photographic work and also their relationship as artists/spouses.

When: Thursday, Sept 29 from 7-9pm

Where: Dallas Center for Photography, 4756 Algiers St, Dallas 75207

Cost: $5

Presents Lecture by

Outstanding Architect/Artist Marc Fornes

Tuesday, 29 March 2016 at Magnolia Theatre

Dallas Architecture Forum, a non-profit organization for everyone interested in learning about and improving the architecture, design, landscape and urban fabric of the North Texas region is pleased to continue its 2015-16 Lecture Season with award-winning architect Marc Fornes, whose work intersects the fields of architecture and art. He is the founder of THEVERYMANY™, a New York-based studio engaging Art and Architecture through systematic research and development into applied Computer Science and Digital Fabrication. His prototypical structures and unique organic environments are included within the permanent collections of the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the FRAC Centre in Orleans, France, the Centre National des Arts Plastiques in Sache, France, and in many private collections. He has been exhibited at institutions worldwide including the Guggenheim and has sold work at Art Basel Miami/GGG, Art Paris, Phillips de Pury and Sotheby’s.

Fornes will speak on Tuesday, March 29 at 7 p.m. at the Magnolia Theater in the West Village.

“Marc Fornes is an architect and subject matter expert in computer science who is constantly reinventing the field of Computational Skinning to create large-scale, highly organic and self-supported structures for public outdoor art installations, as well as medium-scaled projects for museum exhibition, retail spaces and personal art collections,” stated Nate Eudaly, Executive Director of the Dallas Architecture Forum. “He was artist-in-residence at the Atelier Calder and his Pop-Up store for Louis Vuitton was awarded an A+ Jury award, as well as the 40th Annual Interior Design Award by the IIDA.  Fornes is a TED Fellow and has been a speaker at many events and institutions including the ArchiLab symposium and MoMA MIND. Together with Francois Roche, he co-created ‘(n)Certainties’, a graduate studio course, at Columbia University, the University of Southern California and Die Angewandte in Vienna. He is currently teaching at Princeton and Harvard Graduate School of Design. With his diverse background in art, architecture, computation, digital fabrication and education, we think Marc Fornes’ presentation will be of great interest to the Dallas community.”

The lecture will occur at 7 p.m. on March 29th, with a complimentary reception beginning at 6:15 p.m. Tickets are $20 per lecture for general admission and $5 for students (with ID). Tickets can be purchased at the door before the lecture. No reservations are needed to attend Forum lectures.

Marc Fornes is an architect and subject matter expert in computer science, investigating design through codes and computational protocols. Produced under his label THEVERYMANY™ his extensive body of research – addressing ways to describe complex curvilinear self-supported surfaces into series of flat elements – is constantly reinventing the field of Computational Skinning. As THEVERYMANY™, Marc has designed and built an extensive body of large-scale, highly-organic and self-supported structures situated between the field of art and architecture, including permanent installations in France, Canada and the United States. Some of these have been acquired and are in the permanent collections of the Centre Pompidou; the FRAC Centre in Orleans, France; and in many private collections. He has exhibited work at the Guggenheim (Contemplating the Void), Art Basel Miami, and Art Paris.

Fornes is a TED Fellow and has been a speaker at many events and institutions including the ArchiLab symposium and MoMA MIND. He was the recipient of an artist residency at the Atelier Calder, and his studio was awarded the New Practices New York by the AIA as well as the Architectural League Prize.

CURRENT EXHIBITS
dalisurrealistsmu
Salvador Dalí: An Early Surrealist Masterpiece
Through June 19

The 1930s were one of the most creatively fruitful decades of Salvador Dalí’s career. L’homme poisson (The Fish Man) shows both his tremendous imagination as well as his technical adroitness, and offers a revealing glimpse into the artist’s inner psyche. After an auspicious beginning as part of the first exhibition of surrealist works held in the U.S., in 1931, the painting has remained out of the public domain for much of its existence. This exhibition celebrates the Meadows’ acquisition of L’homme poisson-the first painting by Dalí to enter the collection of a Texas museum-and presents a renewed look at this early masterpiece within the artist’s oeuvre of surrealism. Learn More

This exhibition has been organized by the Meadows Museum, and is funded by a generous gift from The Meadows Foundation.

Between Paris and Texas: Marie Cronin, Portraitist of the Belle Époque
February 14 – June 5

Between Paris and Texas: Marie Cronin, Portraitist of the Belle Époque is the first monographic exhibition of Cronin’s (1867-1951) art and will feature a focused selection of her paintings, including works shown in the salons of Paris, as well as official portraits of Texas statesmen that hang at the Texas State Capitol, such as Alfonso Steele (1817-1911), the last survivor of the Battle of San Jacinto. A Texas-raised artist, Cronin studied with Claudio Castelucho (Spanish, 1870-1927) in Paris during the first decade of the twentieth century. Following her return from Europe, Cronin would continue her artistic career back in Texas while also carrying out the exigencies of a family in the business of expanding railroad operations across the state. Learn More

This exhibition has been organized by the Meadows Museum, and is funded by a generous gift from The Meadows Foundation.

 

Process and Innovation: Carlotta Corpron and Janet Turner
February 14 – June 5

This exhibition will present the work of two pioneering artists working and teaching in Texas in the 1940s and 1950s, Carlotta Corpron (1901-1988) and Janet Turner (1914-1988). Corpron, working in photography, and Turner, working in painting and printmaking, both taught art education at Texas universities and came into their own maturity of style during the middle of the twentieth century. Process and Innovation: Carlotta Corpron and Janet Turner explores the work of both artists made during this period of consummate experimentation. This exhibition draws entirely from holdings within the Dallas area, including Bywaters Special Collections of SMU, which holds an impressive collection of art by both Turner and Corpron. Learn More

Greenway Parks Residence

Architecture
Frank Welch and Associates

Architect Frank Welch designed this modern residence with traditional touches to harmoniously reside in the beautiful neighborhood of Greenway Parks. As requested by the owners, the architecture of the home is clean with straight lines to create a simple canvas for its art and furnishings. Rift-cut white oak was used for all doors, cabinets, and the front sculptural staircase that reflects the owner’s sensibilities. The wood floors are defined by a dark finish termed “Crude Oil” by Welch. The interiors feature beautiful contemporary furnishings and fabrics. Natural and neutral finishes create a backdrop for the client’s prominent art collection, which brings pops of color to the rooms. The floating back staircase is fabricated with cork inset into oak stained steps. Intimate nooks were created for the family’s treasured library of books, as well as for entertaining. A generous kitchen area serves as a gathering place for the family and their guests, who enjoy the clean, contemporary and comfortable design of the home.

Malone Cliff View Residence

Architecture
Booziotis & Company Architects

Malone Cliff View provides a Dallas philanthropist a contemporary aerie with spectacular views overlooking the Trinity River corridor and downtown Dallas. Located on a west Dallas escarpment, the concrete structure rises three stories. The design creates a non-rectilinear building that affords views to the city from all the major spaces. These interlocking areas provide a place for intimate gatherings while still accommodating large parties. Four structural concrete pylons hold the bulk of the small secondary functions while supporting the three primary living zones. Each living zone is capped with a hyperbolic paraboloid shaped concrete roof plane cantilevering out to the north. Clad in stone, the building has a sense of permanence, while significant areas of glass provide amazing views to the north and east. A dramatic circular staircase connects the various living areas on the three floors of the residence.

Meaders Residence

Architecture
Bernbaum / Magadini Architects

Meaders Residence emphasizes distinctive natural elements valued in North Texas. Sixteen large live oaks and the site’s natural beauty have been preserved, and the hardscape includes several stone terraces. Water features include a koi pond that hugs the cantilevered foundation pool court.  Large stone walls frame custom fabricated oversized steel-framed windows that admit natural light to enhance the indoor-outdoor connection. Ceiling heights from nine to nearly twelve feet emphasize an open feeling. Lueders roughback limestone walls along with cabinets, flooring and trim fabricated from rift-cut white oak create a light palette for the interiors. Art and selected furnishings provide accents of stronger color. Interior furnishings are primarily modern, and the owners’ sculpture, painting and photography collections are prominently displayed. The kitchen includes two islands clad in Carrera marble along with an oversized range and other state-of-the-art appliances. The main residence and pool cabana share the site with an extended backyard forming a modern, comfortable and timeless design.

AIGA DFW Women’s Leadership Series: Cocktails and Convos

April 14, 2015 // 7:00 pm

In 2014, AIGA launched its Women’s Leadership Initiative to recognize and cultivate women’s successes in creative communities. Centered around the goals of celebration, cultivation and connection, each chapter aims to facilitate the conversation about women and leadership in its respective community.

We don’t want to start our initiative with what’s expected. Instead, we want to open up our Women’s Leadership Initiative with a couple of roundtables, some good food, wine and conversation about what we’re proud of, what we’re experiencing and what we’re hoping for in the world of women’s leadership.

Dallas Architecture Forum February 2015 News

FORUM  LECTURES  IN  FEBRUARY
Arthur W. ANDERSSON
Architect and Founder, Andersson-Wise Architects
Austin, TX

4 February 2015
Wednesday, 7 pm with informal reception at 6:15 pm
Venue:  Magnolia Theatre, West Village

Free Admission for Forum members; $5 for full-time students; $20 general admission
AIA Members may earn 1.0 CE units for attending this Lecture
The Bob James Memorial Lecture, with underwriting support from the
Dallas Center for Architecture Foundation

Arthur W. Andersson and F. Christian Wise founded Andersson-Wise Architects in 2001, focused on the idea that a collaborative approach to design leads to a built solution attuned to its purpose, as well as the broader issues of image and context. As Design Director, Andersson’s role as Principal-In-Charge is to provide leadership by establishing design concepts and integrating the client into the collaborative process.  Andersson has practiced architecture over three decades throughout the United States in Kansas City, New Orleans and Austin. He studied architecture at the University of Kansas and at the University of London, England graduating with a Bachelor of Environmental Design.  He collaborated with Charles W. Moore in designing the 1984 Louisiana World Exposition in New Orleans, and also established an office with Moore in Austin.  He is a Fellow in the American Institute of Architects.

For Andersson-Wise, the fundamental elements that give buildings meaning are found in nature.  The W Hotel + Residences with Austin City Limits LIVE at the Moody Theater, the Topfer Theatre at ZACH, the Dining Hall & Student Center and the Dormitory & Faculty Residences at St. Stephens Episcopal School, and Temple Beth Shalom on the Jewish Community Center in Austin are a short list of his recently completed projects.  Andersson was most recently selected to design a sustainably driven event center for the Boy Scouts of America called the Summit Bechtel Reserve: Ridge Leadership Center including a 300 seat lecture hall, dining hall, central lodge, and visitor lodging in West Virginia.  Andersson’s projects are full of light and atmosphere, the physical embodiment of the great Charles Moore’s influential tenet that architecture is about enhancing a sense of place.

NEXT FORUM PANEL
Traditional Architecture – How Does it Fit into our Modern World?
John ALLENDER, AIA, Moderator
17 February 2015
Tuesday, 6:30 pm with beverages at 6:15 pm

Presented in collaboration with Preservation Dallas
Free admission, No reservations necessary, Open to the public
AIA members may earn 1.5 CE credits for attending this Panel
Venue:  Dallas Center for Architecture, 1909 Woodall Rodgers Fwy., Ste. 100

The hard truth is that “Traditionalism” is difficult to do well. The lack of training in and appreciation for the rigors of traditional design is producing a Potemkin Village of watered-down, revisionist wallpaper. But if our clients demand traditional design, do we, as design professionals, have the tools to deliver? Or more broadly, should we deliver? Does Traditionalism offer “timelessness” because its tenets are proven? Or does it anchor our society to outdated concepts and values? Is there a place for traditional design in our modern world?

This Panel will be moderated by John P. Allender, AIA.  Allender is a Principal at ARCHITEXAS with experience in corporate, institutional and healthcare projects. His focus has been on sustainability and design innovation guided by a commitment to the preservation of our architectural heritage. Mr. Allender has earned awards and recognitions for multiple adaptive-use and restoration projects in downtown Dallas, and has designed key projects in the greater Dallas area. Joining him as Panelists will beWilson Fuqua, AIA, Principal of J. Wilson Fuqua & Associates Architect, and Stanley O. Graves, FAIA, Senior Principal of the ARCHITEXAS office in Austin.  Join us for an educational and thought-provoking discussion on how well-designed traditional architecture should co-exist with contemporary urbanism.

Join artist Ray Larrow for an enlightening, provocative and entertaining talk that will examine fractal geometry as it pertains to an intuitive painting process.  Ray will offer insights into his own paintings, while providing a thought provoking and unexpected perspective on the visual arts.

Among other things, Ray will touch upon the following questions:

How might a once obscure area of mathematics relate to an artistic intuition as it relates to executing brush strokes?

How might fractals relate to inventing one’s personal way of painting?

How might the wandering moth offer cues into a particular, calculative method of painting?

Admission to this talk is $15. Wine will be served.

NEXT FORUM LECTURE
Coleman COKER
Architect and Professor
Austin, TX

8 October 2014
Wednesday, 7pm with informal reception at 6:15 pm
Venue:  Horchow Auditorium, Dallas Museum of Art
Presented In partnership with AIA Dallas Design Awards
Coleman Coker is the Ruth Carter Stevenson Regents Chair in the Art of Architecture at the University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture and he is also the director of the Poetics of Building, a design + build program for advanced design students there. He is a registered architect and principal of buildingstudio. Coker has taught at numerous schools of architecture and is past director of the Memphis Center of Architecture, an urban design studio sponsored by the University of Arkansas and University of Tennessee, which focused on a deeper appreciation of the art of building. Coker holds a Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome and is a Loeb Fellow in Advanced Environmental Studies at Harvard University Graduate School of Design. He has a Master of Fine Arts from the Memphis College of Art and received an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts from there. Coker has lectured extensively at universities and professional forums and has participated in numerous design juries across the country.

With a broad range of experience in design offices – including as principal of his own firms – Coker founded buildingstudio in 1999 after a thirteen-year partnership with Samuel Mockbee as Mockbee/Coker Architects. With the formation of buildingstudio Coker sought to blur the boundaries between architecture, art, craft and thinking – rather than separate disciplines, each being essential to the larger realm of building. His work has received numerous honors including National AIA Honor awards, Architectural Record, “Record House” awards and P/A Design Awards. Among his projects are the Cook House, the Barton Residence, the Shiloh Falls Residence, Texas Twister at Rey Rosa Ranch, the Patterson Clinic, Bridges Center, and the Alligator House.  Coker’s work has been published widely both at home and internationally.

Brent BROWN, AIA, Moderator

14 October 2014
Tuesday, 6:30 pm with informal reception at 6:15 pm
Venue:  Dallas Center for Architecture
Presented in collaboration with Dallas City Design Studio
The Connected City Design Challenge was developed to focus on bold design solutions to connect Downtown and the Trinity River overcoming the physical, psychological, and economic divide currently existing.  Following presentations in the Fall of 2013, The Challenge Jury identified from the body of work their preferred themes and ideas, with special recognition on an overall basis to Stoss + SHoP for their scheme of “Hyper-Density Hyper Landscape”.  “The success of the competition and the provocative ideas it generated set the stage for a sustained agenda to reconnect Downtown Dallas to the Trinity River” said Larry Beasley, The Challenge Jury Chair.  “It can be done – the creative submissions show many clever solutions – and it must be done.” This is a challenge that will truly transform Dallas.

See several bold solutions generated by The Challenge. Hear how these solutions are being investigated and moving forward. Learn how you can get involved to shape this area of our city. Join us for this important and timely update moderated by Brent Brown.
