Publication NotesPosted: 11 June 2011
A few quick announcements regarding publication through other outlets:
I have a short piece concerning Farshid Moussavi’s design for the Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCA) Cleveland in the Ohio State student architecture journal One:Twelve. Using MoCA as a starting point, I scrutinize architecture’s still naive engagement with film through “virtual tours.” Edited, designed and partly written by graduate and undergraduate students at the Knowlton School of Architecture, One:Twelve publishes once a quarter, and they have just completed their first academic year. You can read my contribution here, or view a PDF of the issue in which it appears here.
Another (very short) piece of mine on the work of Bjarke Ingels Group will be published in the inaugural CLOG pamphlet, organized and edited by a group of young New York architects. From the CLOG call for submissions:
Forums such as social media, online press, blogs and tweets have drastically increased the rate at which architectural imagery is distributed and consumed today. While an unprecedented range of work is now accessible to the public, the constantly updating avalanche of architectural imagery has reduced any single project’s lifespan with Architecture’s collective consciousness to a week, an afternoon, a single post… an endless churning architecture du jour. CLOG deliberately slows down this flow of information, providing a place to reflect, discuss, and take aim.
The first pamphlet will focus on BIG, and will have contributions from a motley crew of young critics and academics. An outgrowth from a previous blog post on the Mountain Dwellings, my piece focuses on the use of narrative diagrams in BIG’s work. I will post a link here when one becomes available.
(UPDATE: CLOG now has a web presence at www.clog-online.com and the Storefront for Art & Architecture will be hosting a launch party for their first issue on October 7th. If you are in New York be sure to check it out.)
Also, I have had a tumblr.com account for some time now, focusing on the loose aggregation of international building styles collectively referred to as Brutalism. I have pored over the collections of my local libraries, seeking out and scanning compelling images and drawings from such architects as Marcel Breuer, Paul Rudolph, Kevin Roche, and Kenzo Tange, among many others.
