Higher education is in a state of flux. Emerging technologies and approaches to learning are upending norms of traditional knowledge transmission. Internet-based learning is continuing to increase while at the same time, campus architects are re-valuing social spaces as essential to the student experience. As a result, higher education leaders are looking into new ideas for university campus master plans, and rethinking and conceptualizing new academic buildings. As these initiatives and juxtapositions evolve, what will the academic building of the future look like? How will designers ensure classroom spaces are relevant --both now and in decades to come? Join BuroHappold and a panel of experts on Wednesday, May 22, when we convene a panel of expert practitioners and observers including an architect, institutional advisor, university administrator and journalist to hear their thoughts on this critical topic. These experts, working at the cutting edge of the future of higher education, will discuss the catalysts for the changes, transformational design approaches, and lessons for future academic facility and instructional designs. Moderator Sara Lipka, Senior Editor – The Chronicle of Higher Education Speakers Elliot Felix, Founder and CEO – brightspot strategy William Menking, Founder and Editor-in-Chief – The Architect’s Newspaper Others to be confirmed soon!
The exhibition ARE WE HUMAN? : The Design of the Species : 2 seconds, 2 days, 2 years, 200 years, 200,000 years will be on view at the Princeton University School of Architecture from November 6, 2017 through January 5, 2018. Curators Beatriz Colomina and Mark Wigley will give a presentation and gallery talk at 5:00pm on November 6th in the School of Architecture building. The installation is designed by Andres Jaque and the Office for Political Innovation, an international practice that explores material politics at the intersection of design, research and activism. The entire School of Architecture will be filled with a dense collage of overlapping works by architects, artists, designers, scientists, filmmakers, research groups and think tanks. The effect is a kaleidoscope of artistic, technical, philosophical, theoretical and ethical reflection on the intimate relation between “design” and “human.” It is the first time the exhibition will be shown in the United States. The exhibition is supplemented by a set of special installations prepared by the curators and a joint team of Princeton University and Columbia University students. Exhibition participants include Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Eyal Weizman and Forensic Architecture, Hito Steyerl, Marshmallow Laser Feast, MOS Architects, Armin Linke, Philipp Meuser, Galina Balashova, Francois Dallegret, Center for Land Use Interpretation, Laura Kurgan, Orkan Telhan, Lu Yang, Tom Keenan and Sohrab Mohebbi, Lorenzo Pezzani, Common Accounts, Daniel Eisenberg, Juan Herreros, Sebastian Seung, Het Nieuwe Instituut, Lucia Allais, Joyce Hsiang and Bimal Mendis, Lydia Kallipoliti, Ali Kazma, Axel Kilian, Spyros Papapetros, V.

A modern interpretation of a Christmas tree designed by French firm 1024 Architecture lighting Grand Place, the main public square in Brussels, Belgium has some locals seeing stars. Standing 82 feet tall, ABIES-Electronicus, as the modern tree installation is named, is billed as an eco-friendly equivalent of chopping down a living tree, but some politicians in the city say it represents a "war on Christmas" as the symbols of the holiday are abstracted away from tradition. The mayor dismissed the charges, noting this year's holiday theme was about light, and noting that a nativity scene is set up nearby. Built using readily accessible scaffolding and covered in fabric, ABIES-Electronicus can be ascended for an aerial view of the square and features video projections and changing light displays as well as a sound scheme. The modern design is also intended to contrast with the ornate historic architecture of the square. The architects told the French publication Libération (as translated by Google), "It is made of standard components that can easily be found nearby... And contrary to what has been said, it is cheap compared to the price of abnormal loads, crane and staff mobilized by these giant firs. And it is more fun!" The tree previously made an appearance in the town of Guebwiller, France, where the photos below and video were taken. [Via ArtInfo.]
