Swiss Original Handmade Creative Project

For centuries, the Swiss tradition of Emmentaler AOP cheese production has focused on the art of cheesemaking, on artisan skills and on HAND MADE expertise, all underpinned by a caring attitude towards nature, time, materials, know-how and the vital energy of the environment we live in.

In order to be able to continue to read, refresh and interpret its own values in an innovative, contemporary and disruptive way, from the outset Emmentaler Switzerland has always been very keen and interested in engaging, supporting and promoting the world of art, talent and creativity for all.

As was the case in past competitions, exhibitions and communication initiatives, Emmentaler Switzerland is launching a new open creative competition for the collection, valorisation and exhibition of a broad selection of works and thematic artworks.

THE SWISS ORIGINAL

As part of the new globalisation of recent decades, we have learned to appreciate not only certain values and products shared by many civilisations, but also values and products expressly linked to the geographical, historical and cultural origins of specific local areas.

This competition aims to collect, valorise and exhibit artworks that tell stories of Swiss originality. Originality intended in terms of both methods and content that are more specifically and quintessentially “Swiss”, as well as those that are more ironic, interpretative and disruptive.

Dancing – Alternative Designs for Clubs

Summary  The aim of the “dancing” competition is to develop design proposals for the nightclub typology, intended as a place to experience entertainment in relation to music: listen, perform, dance. The participants are asked to create innovative and unconventional projects on this theme, questioning the very basis of the notion of a club. Recently a series of new initiatives have emerged in relation to music entertainment and dance. While festivals and morning discos have extended the duration of musical events over the limited span of one night, silent discos and flash mobs exceeded the boundaries of the club, reinventing the way and the place where music events were occurring. In the meantime, music and dance have been used also for therapies and training, as means of self-improvement and realization.Technological advances and streaming services made music much more accessible, increasing consumption and drastically facilitating production and distribution. Within this context, with critical thinking and creative attitude, the participants are urged to create an artifact, merging considerable programmatic innovation and valuable design tools. the proposal can be a device, a piece of furniture, an interior design project, a pavilion, a building or an urban plan. The scale of intervention, program dimensions and location are not given and they can be arranged by the participants to better suit their project.

Coexist: Rethinking Zoos

· introduction ·  Future of zoos will be decided in the next few years. We are facing radical changes in the concept. Over the decades we have been proved that animal captivity, in most cases in terrible conditions, has affected badly their quality of life and their expected lifetime. The raison d’être and the welfare of the more than 3.5 million animals that they contain around the world are increasingly questioned. These places, emerged between the eighteenth and nineteenth century, deeply linked to colonialism and the discovery of new worlds, must evolve adapting to the new needs. The question is how to do so.  · a change of direction ·  Over time, zoos mission has evolved, from being just collections of animals, a symbol of power and greatness of many empires, almost exclusively for the enjoyment of the population, to fulfill other objectives. This evolution goes hand in hand with a growing scientific interest and greater possibilities for research and study. This growing respect for the animals around us means that more and more people are working to look after and maximize animal welfare. · challenge · Archstorming is calling for proposals to create an infrastructure that rethinks the zoo concept and gives it a twist, this time thinking about animals and their conservation over the exhibition to humans. The project is located in the current Zoo of Barcelona. The animal species that will be located in the zoo, as well as their distribution, will be at the discretion of the participant. In the same way, the reuse or elimination of the current infrastructures of the Barcelona Zoo will also be optional. · deadlines · JANUARY​ 15th       EARLY REGISTRATION OPENS     (40€/team)* FEBRUARY 14th      EARLY REGISTRATION CLOSES    (40€/team)* FEBRUARY 15th      REGULAR REGISTRATION OPENS     (60€/team)* MARCH 14th     REGULAR REGISTRATION CLOSES    (60€/team)* MARCH 15th     ADVANCED REGISTRATION OPENS     (80€/team)* APRIL 18th      SUBMISSION DEADLINE MAY 3rd      WINNERS ANNOUNCED · prizes · Prizes totaling 5.700€, broken down as follows: 1st PRIZE - 4.000 € 2nd PRIZE - 1.000€ 3rd PRIZE - 500€ PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD - 200€ + 10 honorable mentions

PennDesign receives $1.25 million gift for architecture prizes

For school alumni, solicitation emails from the alumni office usually elicit groans, not checks. University of Pennsylvania School of Design alum Lori Kanter Tritsch (M.Arch. '85) took a slightly different approach, pledging $1.25 million to her alma mater to establish two prizes for architects. It is the largest single donation for fellowships the school has ever received. Kanter Tritsch is a career architect who sits on the school's Board of Overseers. She made the pledge with her longtime partner, William P. Lauder, the executive chairman of cosmetics giant Estée Lauder, who is also a University of Pennsylvania alum. Part of Kanter Tritsch's gift will establish a $50,000 fellowship for "the most promising graduate architecture student at PennDesign." This fellowship, dubbed the Kanter Tritsch Prize in Energy and Architectural Innovation, will be awarded yearly to a second-year M.Arch. student who demonstrates a thoughtful approach to the issues of "energy, ecology, and/or social equity." The gift will also establish the Kanter Tritsch Medal for Excellence in Architecture and Environmental Design, an award for practicing architects whose work has been under-recognized but who "changed the course of design history," particularly in their approach to energy, environment, and diversity. Current PennDesign faculty aren't eligible. Juries for the fellowship and medal will be led by Winka Dubbeldam, professor and chair in school's Department of Architecture as well as the founder of Archi-Tectonics. In a prepared statement, Dubbeldam complimented the gift's role in highlighting under-appreciated work: "The architecture profession can be slow to recognize young talent. At the same time, many established architects never receive the public recognition they deserve." The juries will be announced this fall, and the first set of winners will be announced in the fall of 2018.

The Architectural League of New York announces 2017 Norden Fund recipients

The Architectural League of New York has announced the two winners of its 2017 Deborah J. Norden Fund, a travel grant that was established in 1995. The grant is awarded to students and recent graduates in the fields of architecture, architectural history, and urban studies.

This year, Kevin Malawski for Pikionis’ Pathway: Paving the Acropolis and Priyanka Shah for Deep Skins: Roger Anger’s Facade Operations were the recipients of the grant. They will both receive $5,000 to use for travel and study.

Malawski, who currently works at New York–based EwingCole, will travel to Athens, Greece to explore the relationship between modern planning principles and regional sensitivity. Through sketches, photographs, and diagrams, his project revolves around the intricacies of Dimitris Pikionis’s five-kilometer, mid-20th-century pathway to the Acropolis. Located within olive tree groves to frame vistas, the mosaic-paved walkways also include gutters and trenches to divert water from seasonal downpours (a result of the Mediterranean climate). Malawski hopes to fill an academic void for Pikionis' architecture, which “employs a mix of operative regionalist undertones with modernism to define a space which authentically relates to the ancient Acropolis it is sited on,” he said.  

Shah, who is an architectural designer with international firm Grimshaw Architects, will go to Paris and Grenoble, France to document Roger Anger’s high-rise residential buildings, specifically looking at the geometric articulations and arrangements. Anger, an influential French architect in the 1950s and 60s, became known for his buildings' facades which present “a direct antecedent to contemporary computational design.” Upon his death, the majority of his works were kept with his estate and remain inaccessible to the public. Shah will consult archives and visit his buildings to create a comprehensive, digitized monograph of his designs.
