Model Projections

Arthur Ross Architecture Gallery, 1172 Amsterdam Ave.
New York, NY 10027 United States

Model Projections investigates the complex pathways between architecture and its representations through an examination of the practice of model making. While models have long occupied a central role in the design and building processes, during the postwar period the production and function of models expanded as architecture firms increasingly commissioned elaborate three-dimensional representations that were extraordinarily precise in detail—from simulated materials to landscaping, from designer furniture to electrification. Precursors to today’s hyperrealist renderings and virtual environments, scale models helped architects advance…

West of Modernism: California Graphic Design, 1975–1995

Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), 5905 Wilshire Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90036 United States

The late 20th century was a transformational period for graphic design. Questioning the increasingly rigid rules of modernism, designers pressed for greater autonomy in their work. At the same time, dizzying advances in technology upended existing design and production processes. Far from the established New York design world, California became a haven for avant-garde designers, a hub of innovation in both discourse and practice. This exhibition is part of LACMA’s Graphic Design Initiative, an interdepartmental project spearheaded by the Decorative…

20th Annual Landscape Design Portfolio Lecture Series: Charles Birnbaum

Scandinavia House, 58 Park Avenue
New York, NY United States

As urban growth continues at a relentless pace, Charles A. Birnbaum, FASLA, FAAR, believes it is crucial for landscape architects to weave a site’s history into new designs, but not in ways that are nostalgic or staid. He points to Philadelphia’s Society Hill and the Russell Page Garden at The Frick Collection as early inspirations for managing change with continuity. More recent projects such as Lincoln Road (Miami) and Spain’s Madrid RIO further demonstrate how historic preservation can blend with modern design to showcase a city’s unique cultural…
