Exhibition "Books for Architects", ETH Zurich

ETH Zurich, Hönggerberg, HIL, gta exhibitions
Architects write books, read books, love books and collect books. Books loom large for architects – books that endeavor to talk about architecture, books that are a source of inspiration, a forum for polemics, an expression of dreams, wishful thinking and so much more. This exhibition showcases a historical selection of special “books for architects” as well as commentary on books by contemporary architects, historians and theorists, who, in various forms, conceptually and concretely explore a great many aspects of books for architects. Selected items are spatially arranged within the exhibition, moreover, for a mise en scène of reading, writing and collecting books.

Columbia University Lecture "During Construction"

Added on by carla juacaba.

Winner of the inaugural ArcVision Prize for Women and Architecture Rio de Janeiro-based architect Carla Juaçaba presents her multi-faceted work, including Pavilion Humanidade, a pavilion built for Rio Mas 2012, a UN conference on sustainable development. A collaboration with artist Bia Lessa, the structure was constructed from recycled scaffolding on a historic fort that juts between Copacabana and Ipanema Beaches and features conference rooms, exhibition spaces, and an auditorium. Juaçaba's residential projects, such as her Rio Bonito House combine stone walls, steel support beams, and skylights to simultaneously evoke weight and weightlessness. Response by Kenneth Frampton.
