“For us at NADAAA, this is a new type of project entirely, and thus, it offers opportunities many other projects cannot… This has been an opportunity to put aside our authorship and look at the collection itself as the basis of inspiration: to build the project from the artifacts, and their relationship to their audiences.”

Nader reviews ‘Thirteen Ways of Looking at a House’

Posted on April 10th, 2022 by Nicole Sakr

Posted under: Things We Like

The new book by Stella Betts and David Leven of LevenBetts is reviewed by Nader for Architectural Record.

“This book is a testament to how the ethic of iteration in architecture evolves into discipline […] with 13 themes and houses, each replete with wider cultural contexts that include literature, art, architectural precedents, and film. Open House, Campsite, Doors and Windows, Steps and Stairs, Corridors, Courtyards, Curtains, Plumbing, House Plants, Plans, Structures, Thick and Thin, Home—when listed like this, they appear as nothing more than benign architectural elements. But in the authors’ minds, each is conceptualized as an indispensable element of a mis-en-scène that anticipates the events that invariably get acted out, with each one serving as another protagonist onstage.”

Posted under: Events, The Cooper Union

Musical performance, lecture, and panel discussion 6:30 pm on April 6, 2022 | The Cooper Union Great Hall, Foundation Building, E 7th St, New York, NY 10003

Lyrical Urbanism: The Taipei Music Center celebrates and communicates the vibrant energy and intensity of the recently completed Taipei Music Center that was designed by architects and Cooper alumni Jesse Reiser AR’81 and Nanako Umemoto AR’83 of Reiser+Umemoto, RUR Architecture. The exhibition introduces the complex’s iconic architecture to an American audience through large-scale photographs, videos, music, and architectural models and drawings. Lyrical Urbanism illustrates the many ways the Music Center is currently inhabited—from informal daytime outdoor markets to organized evening-time music festivals—and how it has become an important urban district where Taiwanese music and culture is cultivated, celebrated, and projected toward a global audience.”

Free and Open to the Public. More information HERE.
