The voice of pain

The voice of pain | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

Hearing voices is most commonly associated with insanity and lunacy. Daniel Libeskind, the iconic US-based architect, artist and designer turned this notion on its head at the RIBA’s Annual Stephen Lawrence Memorial lecture at 66 Portland Place.

Words Kate Clare

In architecture school, we are taught site responds too, and has a conversation with, historical, current and future environments. But what Daniel Libeskind outlines in his lecture is architecture’s dialogue with our human emotions, that architecture is a tool which embodies trauma and manifests itself on site speaking to us through the tangible; walls, floors and materials.   

Libeskind began the lecture with an image of his densely used passport. He used this to discuss his Polish Jewish descent and family connections to the Holocaust. Libeskind first showed the room his Jewish museum, Berlin. Libeskind discussed the 24m void of the Holocaust Tower which visitors are guided to by an axial shard of light. Shutting people in a void with no ‘artwork’ or ‘relic’ is unheard of. However, this un-conditioned, vacant space becomes a space for the user to experience the silence, and begin to imagine the voices of the victims of the Nazi regime. 

Stark slides headed each section of Libeskind’s talk, a simple white word in his own hand, written on the black. ‘Hunted’ covered the Libeskind’s second project, the Felix Nussbaum Haus, a memorial to the German-Jewish surrealist painter. Nature was discussed, in particular the sunflowers that line the periphery of the site that respond to the sun, just as architecture should. Libeskind discussed the Nussebaum walkway as ‘uncomfortable’ and ‘dark’, words not commonly associated with public architecture. The narrative produced by such spaces begins the conversation with the user as they enter the building.

 ‘Trauma’, covered his third project, the Imperial War Museum North, Manchester. The famous ‘shattered globe’ concept that the buildings plan is based upon and walked us, the audience, through the buildings narrative discussing previous architectural critic views, both positive and negative. Libeskind boldly stated ‘almost all art is a result of war’.

For his fourth and final theme, ‘Fault Lines’, Libeskind showed the audience a slide of his favorite book, I Will Bear Witness 1942-1945: A Diary of the Nazi Years by Victor Klemperer, an acute testament from Hitler’s Germany. A common theme through the evening was remembrance and the conversation with memorial spaces. It was this, through nature, music, literature and importantly architecture, which led us finally onto the iconic 9/11 site of Ground Zero. The acoustics of Ground Zero, shared Libeskind, are driven by the ‘music of nature’ which he describes as ‘sound leaving no trace’. The falling of the water in the towers’ footprints represents the disaster. We, the user, find ourselves in conversation with the sound of nature. Listening to the water falling at Ground Zero speaks volumes, far more than any vertical monument.
 
Libeskind does not tell survivors their own story, he uses elemental, physical design to provoke a conversation with the user and speaks to us about their stories through the architecture. Raw, emotive, sometimes controversial this lecture reminded the audience of the power of Libeskind’s architecture.

RIBA and Arb team up to overhaul architectural education

RIBA and Arb team up to overhaul architectural education | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it
Profession and Schosa join forces

 

The RIBA and Arb have joined forces with British architecture schools and student bodies to overhaul the education system in line with a new EU directive due to be ratified next month.

The news comes as the RIBA estimates that the average time for an architect to become registered is nearing a decade.

Former RIBA president Jack Pringle said “drastic change” was needed. “The part III is highly valued internationally but it takes too long to get qualified. The average length is just under ten years, that’s crazy, it can’t take that long to go into one of the poorest-paid professions.”

The EU professional qualifications directive is expected to pass through EU parliament in October and will be implemented by 2016. It is intended to make the system of mutual recognition of title among European countries easier, as well as aligning the length it takes to become qualified.

David Gloster, head of education at the RIBA, said the time taken to qualify in the UK had increased in recent years.

“There are a number of reasons for this,” he told BD. “Students spend five years in academic study, they’re busier in practice so find it harder to take on a part III course and finding the right job that works as a case study for p III is also hard.

“With the fee hike and the fact that practice is vastly different from some 50 years ago when the education system was designed, we have to modernise it.”

A meeting between the RIBA, Arb, Schosa and student bodies is due to held later this month.

Alex Wright, head of Schosa, said: “The change in EU regulation is a useful catalyst. We want a system that’s flexible and fair. It doesn’t necessarily mean it would be shorter but there should be different pathways that students can take.”

Earlier this year Terry Farrell, who is heading a government review into the industry, said the length of architecture courses and the cost of education was a priority for his team.

Snøhetta | Maggie's Centre

Snøhetta | Maggie's Centre | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

Snøhetta’s first permanent building in the UK has opened. The sweeping curve of this 350m⊃2;  Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centre in Aberdeen is far smaller than the Turner Centre, Margate, which before it was cancelled, looked like it would bring the Norwegian practice to our shores.

‘The shell is a soft form from a hard material and inside is very free flowing,’ says Robert Greenwood of Snøhetta. The shell’s enfolding embrace, in sprayed concrete shell, is designed to give cancer sufferers in Aberdeen and beyond, a warm place where they can find fellowship and guidance.

As with all Maggie’s Centres the brief started with the kitchen table and a sense of the space. The series of more particular, intimate spaces, along with the nooks and crannies of the best of the Maggie’s, is set inside a timber box. Working in collaboration with locally-based practice Halliday Fraser Munroe the centre sits alongside Aberdeen’s Forester Hill Hospital. A group of beech trees has been planted to mark the entrance.

This idiosyncratic little building is an interesting Scandinavian addition to the city, which already has the glittering Aberdeen University library, designed by Danish Schmidt Hammer Lassen. It’s good to have you over here Snøhetta.

RIBA announces Part 1, 2 and 3 memberships in major shake-up

RIBA announces Part 1, 2 and 3 memberships in major shake-up | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

Graduates will soon be able to use new RIBA affixes after their name before qualification

 

Plans to modernise the RIBA’s membership structure have been approved by the institute’s council.

The changes, a result of the recent membership review, will see a graduate membership category introduced recognising academic achievement.

This category will distinguish between student members, students who have completed a Part 1 course, and those who have completed Part 2 and are enrolled on Part 3.

 

Part 1 students can use the affix ‘Student member of the RIBA’, while Part 2 students enrolled on a course can use the affix ‘Graduate member of the RIBA’

Students enrolled on a RIBA Part 3 course who are Part 1 and 2 qualified will be able to use a newly introduced ‘AssociateRIBA’ affix after their name.

Part III students will be able to use the AssociateRIBA affix

The changes also aim to acknowledge those who have studied architecture but pursued a career elsewhere, with a new affiliate membership class that will be open professionals from the wider construction and creative industries.

Alongside these changes, a new fellow membership class will recognise ‘architects at the height of their profession’ and will be judged on an individual architect’s merit and achievement.

The institution says the changes will ‘modernise the RIBA professional pathway’.

RIBA President Stephen Hodder said: ‘The RIBA is committed to providing membership that is valued, sustainable for the 21st century and above all stands for professional excellence and achievement. 

‘The upcoming changes to the membership offer will ensure that the RIBA encourages wider diversity, including EU & Internationally based architects, while not diminishing the high standards or status of RIBA chartered membership.

‘The changes have been developed following our recent membership review, the most comprehensive for in 25 years. These are important steps in providing an improved, streamlined membership offer that will deliver what our members have told us they want.’

RIBA Vice President, Membership Anthony Clerici said: 

‘Our exciting new programme for RIBA membership is the result of 18 months of extensive research and conversation with our members and the wider industry. The approval by the RIBA Council sets us on path to delivering a new and improved membership offer that reflects what our members want and need from a forward looking RIBA.’

The new membership categories

Student
For those enrolled on a Part 1 RIBA validated course, or successfully completed Part1 within past 2 years. Will be able to use the label: ‘Student member of the RIBA’.

Graduate
For those enrolled on a Part 2 RIBA validated course or completed Part 1 RIBA validated course and doing PEDR. Will be able to use the label: ‘Graduate member of the RIBA’.

Associate
For RIBA members who are Parts 1 and 2 qualified and enrolled on a Part 3 RIBA validated course or doing PEDR; or EU directive recognised qualified. Will be able to use new ‘AssociateRIBA’ affix.

Chartered
For RIBA members who are Parts 1,2 and 3 qualified; or EU directive recognised plus Part 3; or EU directive recognised plus 5 years’ experience (including 2 years PEDR & MEAP); or full MEAP assessment  for international qualification and experience. These members will continue to use the ‘RIBA’ affix.  

Fellow
This membership category is for architects who have been chartered RIBA members for 5 years or more with assessed evidence of distinguished achievement in architecture. Will be able to use new affix: ‘FRIBA’.

Affiliate
For members who are Part 1 or 2 qualified pursuing a career outside of the practice of architecture; or qualified co-professional working within the built environment, or non-architect qualified academics teaching in validated school of architecture. Can use the label: ‘Affiliate of the RIBA’.

The changes will be discussed further at the December RIBA council and it has not yet been confirmed when these new membership categories will come into play.

Marketing and Business Development Manager for Alan Higgs Architects

Marketing and Business Development Manager for Alan Higgs Architects | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

We are a design-lead architectural practice with a focus on residential commissions and small school work. We have a wide range of clients in London and the country and are proud of the work we have produced over the last 15 years. We want to build on this background by developing new business, especially with commissions we want to work on - both to satisfy our creative/architectural aspirations and that are likely to be financially rewarding. This includes more large private houses and significant alterations, multi-unit residential work, country projects for London clients and smaller schools and institutional buildings.

To achieve this, we need to spread our message to a wider, deeper range of potential clients, keep in better touch with past contacts and crucially meet more referrers and introducers. We are looking for a marketing and business development manager to help us do this.

Working closely with the managing director, the role includes:

•  Developing the marking plan
•  Organising, developing and maintaining our data-base
•  Researching potential clients
•  Making direct contacts with referrers 
•  Arranging new business presentations
•  Ensuring our internet presence is optimised
•  Researching and pursuing opportunities for the MD to speak publicly
•  Entering award schemes
•  Assisting with generating press coverage
•  Helping plan and execute social events
•  Raising and enhancing profile generally

You need to have solid marketing and business development experience, ideally within the architecture, design or building consultancy sectors, but this may not be critical; more important is intelligence, enthusiasm and effectiveness. You will however be motivated, self-starting and fluent with modern technologies. Good confident presentation is important as is the ability to write succinctly and alluringly. The time commitment would be initially for a day or two a week and is flexible around childcare needs. 

Salary is commensurate with fit, but as a guide pro rata of £30-35,000 per annum.

We are a small fun team in Marylebone and will welcome our new colleague enthusiastically. We have a well established reputation, great new corporate identity, website and brochure and recently were the cover story of House & Garden magazine.

Please contact us by emailing your CV to administrator@alanhiggsarchitects.com 

No Agencies please.
