"I am thrilled for Andrés Jaque to take on the directorship of GSAPP’s Advanced Architectural Design program. He has been an important member of our faculty who is greatly admired by faculty and students alike for his unique reframing of architecture and its ability to engage the urgent issues of our time, as well as his ability to re-shape design and contemporary practice through his influential pedagogical approach,” said Dean Amale Andraos, in prepared remarks. "I’m very thankful for the rigorous vision and dedication that Enrique Walker has brought to the program during his directorship. Enrique established a strong legacy of bringing experimental approaches to research and design, and built a program that is firmly grounded in forming positions through design."
Jaque has taught at GSAPP since 2015. He is the founder of the New York- and Madrid-based studio Office for Political Innovation, which explores architecutre through built work as well as performance.
This exhibition allows us to revisit a set of models that have long peppered the halls of our School.... They serve as an integral part of Professor Kenneth Frampton’s pedagogical project to teach both architecture and architectural history. While offering a critique of the ways in which architectural history is normally taught, the process of building models allows students to access knowledge about architecture through making it again.Stagecraft: Models and Photos will be on view from Feb. 9 to Mar. 10. A discussion and exhibition reception will take place 6pm on the 9th and feature Kenneth Frampton, James Ewing, Amale Andraos, and Irene Sunwoo.
The Other Architect at Columbia’s GSAPP showcases 23 case studies of architects who emerged within the discipline and society without producing built work. With examples dating back to the 1960s, the exhibition seeks to illustrate how international and often multidisciplinary groups used experimental devices to approach design outside of the traditional realm.
Within The Other Architect, audiences can find objects that display how the selected architects thought and worked, such as books, drawings, photographs, budgets, tactics for accessing resources, videos, mission statements and manifestos, surveys, posters, meeting minutes and organizational schemes, T-shirts, questionnaires, and even boats and buses.
The exhibition looks into the source of these alternative methods of creative development and questions how similarly unique approaches can be applied to contemporary architecture. The Other Architect is itself, too, a research project that contributes to the discourse surrounding the role of the architect responds to the question of how architecture can be viewed beyond built forms.The Other Architect Arthur Ross Architecture Gallery Buell Hall, Columbia GSAPP 1172 Amsterdam Avenue, New York Through December 2
