ECHOƧ FROM CINCINNATI

Posted on May 22nd, 2019 by Nicole Sakr

Posted under: Academic, Press

The University of Cincinnati’s Christoph Klemmt interviewed Nader for the School of Architecture and Interior Design (SAID)’s first publication of student work echoƨ. They discussed the role of architectural theory and material studies in today’s practice and academy.

“Students and young architects have gained unprecedented intellectual range due to their access to information and knowledge, and in turn, they have developed their agency as a result of the very same means. My particular interest is in the way in which material explorations-in the academy-have impacted the means and methods of construction, bottom up, in the construction industry; our ability to restructure innovation in the building industry is a result of this process.”

Diane Lewis: In Memoriam

Posted on May 16th, 2019 by Nicole Sakr

Posted under: Academic, The Cooper Union

“The combination of fierce charisma, a fighting spirit, and a stubborn intellectual posture defined her living days, and in hindsight, we come to appreciate the sum of it as an ambition for all of us to emulate. A tireless protagonist, she would conduct reviews that would end some five hours after the end of the day; her love of debate through the jousting of words, ideas, and positions defined the many events she hosted. Lewis left behind many things, but her most recent book, Open City: Existential Urbanity, will serve as a document of the many pedagogies she explored, the constellations of ideas she sponsored, and the platforms of debate she invented.”

Oscar Ko on Tongxian

Vladimir Belogolovsky : And finally, is there one particular project built in China over the last decade or two that you particularly admire, either by Chinese or foreign architect?

Oscar Ko: I like a small brick building Tongxian Gatehouse, the artists-in-residence structure at the arts community outside of Beijing. It was designed by what used to be Boston-based Office dA and is now NADAAA led by Nader Tehrani and Katherine Faulkner. Everyone was talking about giant iconic projects for the Olympics at the time but to me it was this small building that stood out. I went to visit it and I really enjoyed its materiality, authenticity, and integrity.
