Dallas Design Symposium : “Material Design” with Tom Kundig and Brad Oldham Oct. 30

tomkundig1

Dallas Design Symposium

“Material Design” with Tom Kundig and Brad Oldham

Presented by the Dallas Architecture Forum

  
 
Sunday, October 30, 2016, 2 to 4:30 pm
Check-in: 1:30 – 2 pm; Program starts at 2 pm
Nasher Hall, Nasher Sculpture Center
 
Join the Dallas Architecture Forum for an afternoon focused on how outstanding design utilizes materials, from common to rare, as integral elements of the design process.  Attendees will also learn how leading architects and artists incorporate functionality into their designs, ranging in scale from small sculptures to residences.
 
Attendees will have the privilege of hearing from two of the most highly regarded practitioners in their fields share insights and lead inspiring discussion on these intriguing topics.
 
Keynote discussion will be presented by Tom Kundig, FAIA, one of the leading residential architects in the world.

Joining Kundig in discussion about his award-winning projects will be Gensler Design Director Ian Zapata.
Also speaking will be the highly acclaimed sculptor Brad Oldham in conversation with Nasher Curator Leigh Arnold.
 
Tom Kundig, FAIA
Olson-Kundig Architects, Seattle
 
Tom Kundig, FAIA, is one of the leading residential architects in the world, whose work can be found on five continents. He is a Principal and Owner of Olson-Kundig Architects, a Seattle-based firm, which believes that buildings can serve as a bridge between nature, culture and people.  Tom Kundig is widely acclaimed for his poetic designs that reveal his reverence for materials, art, functionality and craft in the experience of built space and its relationship to landscape. He will discuss how Olson-Kundig has used these elements to create projects as wide ranging as huts to high rises, homes—often for art collectors— academic, cultural and civic projects, museums and exhibition design, places of worship, creative production, urban design and interior design. Kundig has received over 50 major design awards, including a National Design Award from the Cooper-Hewitt, an Award in Architecture from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, ten National AIA Design Awards, and seven National AIA Honor Awards.   Kundig is a member of the Interior Design Magazine Hall of Fame and the Architectural Digest AD100.  His work has appeared in hundreds of publications worldwide, and he is the author of three monographs, Tom Kundig Houses, Tom Kundig Houses 2, and Tom Kundig Works.  
 
Brad Oldham, Sculptor
Brad Oldham Sculpture, Dallas
 
From public community spaces to private homes, sculptor Brad Oldham has earned recognition worldwide with his site-specific artworks. Oldham has been described as a sculptor, place maker, and fearless fabricator.  In both his large-scale sculptures and smaller pieces created for individuals, Oldham’s meticulous craftsmanship, passion, focus on materials, creativity and consistent quality of work are evident. From prototype clay figures and shapes, Oldham will take us through the process of transforming them into brilliant stainless steel, bronze, aluminum, and brass, ranging from large scale site-specific installations to small sculptures and jewelry.
 
 
Panel Discussion
 
Following the moderated presentations there will be a Panel Discussion to further learn about the use of materials based on their function within a project and the project’s scale.  Attendees will also be able to ask questions of the presenters at the conclusion of the Panel.
 
 
Patron Cocktail Reception
 
There will be a Patron  cocktail reception at an architecturally significant  private residence on Saturday evening, October 29 from 6 to 8 pm. A limited number of Patron tickets, which also include admission to the Design Symposium on Sunday afternoon, October 30th will be sold.

About Tom Kundig
 
tomkundig
Tom Kundig is an owner and design principal at Olson Kundig. He joined the firm in 1986, and has steadily diversified his range of project typologies from residential work to museums, wineries, high-rise multi-unit structures, and hotels. The geographic diversity of his projects has broadened just as much over the years; he is currently working not only all over the West Coast of the United States, but also in Australia, Brazil, Austria, Mexico, South Korea, and multiple locations on the East Coast and Canada. But no matter where he works, whether in the urban context of Manhattan or the rural landscape of Montana or Idaho, the landscape inevitably looms large, as do a consistent array of concerns related to site, scale, materials, and livability. Kundig favors materials that are appropriate to the particular context of the building, generally opting for the tough and the rustic for their ability to evoke nature and weather over time, helping the building recede into the landscape.
 
Kundig grew up in the Pacific Northwest. His father was an architect, and during his formative years he was constantly exposed to artists, designers, and craftspeople. He initially wanted to study science, but finally decided that architecture “allowed me to have a foot in both places—the technical realm and the poetic realm—and in that magical intersection between the two.” The style may be rugged, but the effect is warm and welcoming. “And sometimes there is even an element of risk, or daring, which is desired on the client’s part and intentional on my part,” he adds. “Many of my buildings, even the public ones, involve being exposed to the elements in some way.” The Studhorse home in Winthrop, Washington, is designed as a gathering of structures around a central courtyard, and to walk from the common areas to the bedrooms it is necessary to go outside, no matter the season.
tomkundig1
Occupants of Kundig’s buildings are constantly aware of a balance achieved between prospect and refuge, both within each room and over the entire site. This is related to the “macro to micro” phenomenon, where the building encourages reflection on its big ideas and at the same time enjoyment of its many details. Wherever you look, subtle material connections are happening. Perhaps a quiet nod is being made to the former existence of the building or the site, as in Art Stable, which occupies the site of an actual former horse stable. Or locally salvaged materials are being given new life, as in the Sawmill Canyon house, where the structural steel was salvaged from a nearby cement mine that was being demolished, the wood for much of the interior was found in a nearby barn, and the sliding window wall is operated by a found wheel from an old water pump.
 

Kundig’s breakout project was Studio House, completed in 1998. It was featured in the New York Times, and that story was quickly followed by a New York Times Magazine cover feature on Chicken Point

. Both Chicken Point and the Brain won AIA National Honor Awards. Since then, Kundig’s work has been frequently featured in the New York Times, Architectural Record, Financial Times, Architectural Digest, and the Wall Street Journal. Princeton Architectural Press has published three volumes devoted to his work. He has received some of the world’s highest design honors, from a National Design Award from the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum to an Academy Award in Architecture from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. In 2014, he was included in Architectural Digest’s AD100, and in 2012, he was inducted into Interior Design magazine’s Hall of Fame. His work has received more than 50 awards from the American Institute of Architects, including 18 National Design Awards.

About The Dallas Design Symposium:
 
The Dallas Design Symposium was founded by The Dallas Architecture Forum to extend the reach of The Forum not only in active education and dialogue on architecture and the built environ­ment, but to examine, educate and amplify informed discussion on how those elements intersect and impact the arenas of design and art. The Symposium initiates ongoing con­versations across professional arenas and personal interests, creating new networks and spurring community involvement in discussions about the built and creative environment.  The Nasher Sculpture Center is a long-standing collaborator with The Forum in the development and presentation of The Dallas Design Symposium.
   
Each Symposium addresses a different issue intersecting these fields of architecture, design and art. Speakers and moderators are selected specifically to offer their unique but complimentary perspectives on the topic. Previous symposia have included the following topics and present­ers: 
•              Interior and Product Design: Christopher C. Deam, Howard F. Elkus, Karim Rashid, Emily Summers
•              Designing for Collections: Aaron Betsky, Jorge Pardo, George Sexton, Scott John­son, Jack Lane
•              Blurring the Lines: Art, Architecture and Design: Terence Riley, Johnston Marklee, Walead Beshty, Jeremy Strick
•              The Legacy of Christo and Jeanne Claude:  Christo
•              Architecture and Art – Critical Intersections:  New York Times critic Michael Kimmelman              
•              Modernism:  Mid-Century Modern Design:  Leo Marmol, Sidney Williams, Nate Eudaly
 
This year’s Dallas Design Symposium, featuring architect and product designer Tom Kundig and sculptor Brad Oldham, will offer insights and increased understanding into how these outstanding practitioners incorporate materials and functionality as integral elements of their highly regarded and honored design.

About the Dallas Architecture Forum
 
The Dallas Architecture Forum is a not-for-profit civic organization that brings leading architectural thought leaders from around the world to speak in Dallas and also fosters important local dialogue about the major issues impacting our urban environment.  The Forum was founded in 1996 by some of Dallas’ leading architects, business, cultural and civic leaders, and it continues to benefit from active support and guidance from these citizens. The Forum fulfills its mission of providing a continuing and challenging public discourse on architecture and urban design in – and for – the Dallas area. The Dallas Architecture Forum’s members include architects, design professionals, students and educators, and a broad range of civic-minded individuals and companies intent to improve the urban environment in North Texas.  The Forum has been recognized nationally with an AIA Collaboration Achievement Award for its strategic partnerships with other organizations focused on architecture, urban planning and the arts.  For more information on the Forum, visit www.DallasArchitectureForum.org.
Among the over 130 speakers who have addressed the Forum’s Lecture Series  are Shigeru Ban,  Brad Cloepfil,  Diller + Scofidio, Peter Eisenman, Michael Graves,  Daniel Libeskind,  Thomas Phifer,  Rafael Vinoly, Juhani Pallasmaa, AIA Gold Medal Winner Peter Bohlin, and  regional architects David Lake and Ted Flato.  Pritzker Prize winners speaking to the Forum have been Kazuyo Sejima, Rafael Moneo, Thom Mayne, Rem Koolhaas and Norman Foster (the latter two in collaboration with the ATT Performing Arts Center).   Other speakers for the Forum have been leading designers Calvin Tsao, Andrée Putman, and Karim Rashid; landscape architect Michael Van Valkenburgh; and National Trust President Emeritus Richard Moe.  Important critics, authors and patrons who have spoken to the Forum include Emily Pulitzer, Terence Riley, Pulitzer Prize winners Robert Campbell and Blair Kamin, Aaron Betsky, and the late David Dillon.
The Forum organizes and presents an annual series of Panels—local, informal, open, and offered free of charge as a public service to the community—led by a moderator who brings a subject of local importance along with comments by participating panelists.  Moderators and Panelists have also come from both other Texas cities as well as from national institutions that were connected with particular Panel subjects.  Panels offer attendees the opportunity to participate in creating discourse.  Important topics addressed in Panels in recent years include: “Thoughts on the Dallas Comprehensive Plan”; “The Kimbell Expansion: A Discussion”; “Filling Out the Dallas Arts District”; and “Re-envisioning the Trinity”.

Archaeology and Art: Tsuchigama Project Symposium Aug. 8

TsuchigamaPressImage_Sm

Archaeology and Art: Tsuchigama Project
A one-day symposium on the ancient art of the Japanese dirt kiln
Saturday, August 8, 2015, 9am – 5pm
free and open to the public
schedule of events detailed below
Tsuchigama or “dirt kiln” is recognized by scholars as Japan’s earliest high-fire kiln type. It fell out of use over 700 years ago when the Anagama kiln became popular and has not been in ceramic practice since. Japanese sculptor Tadashi Hirakawa and a team of archaeologists have uncovered and excavated sites of ancient tsuchigamas and have been collaborating for several years to recreate the ancient kiln type. The team has successfully made and used two tsuchigamas in Bizen, Japan and is working hard to revive the techniques and styles associated with the tsuchigama, such as Bizen-ware, as a contemporary art practice.
This summer, Tadashi Hirakawa travelled to the US and teamed up Chris Powell (TCU Associate Professor of Art) to create a tsuchigama in Sevier County, Arkansas. With the help of two students from Japan, Yukiko Akai and Tomoko Sakamoto, and a TCU ceramic student, Sydney Williams, the tsuchigama was built in the hillsides of Southwest Arkansas where natural resources were pulled from the land. Photographs documenting the building and firing of the kiln can be found on the Tsuchigama Project Facebook page.
To celebrate this collaborative project and to draw attention to this ancient ceramic practice, a one-day symposium is being held to discuss old and new style Bizen-ware and the longer term potential of reviving the tsuchigama. Alongside the symposium, Fort Worth Contemporary Arts will also host an exhibition of old style Bizen-ware and new works made in the Arkansas kiln by Yukiko Akai, Tadahsi Hirakawa, Chris Powell, Tomoko Sakamoto and Sydney Williams.
On August 13th, an exhibition of works fired in the Arkansas tsuchigama will be held at Gallery 76102 in Fort Worth, TX. The exhibition, TSUCHIGAMA/EARTHEN KILN will remain on view through September 30.

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.
