Cantieri Navali Venezia | Grafting Architecture. Catalonia at Venice | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Venice | 05.06.2014 - 23.11.2014

"The starting point for Grafting Architecture is the restoration of Casa Bofarull (1913-1933), one of the key works of Josep Maria Jujol (1879-1949). In this Tarragonan architect's way of working we can identify an attitude that can be traced through many projects built in the last century, one which is based on an intensive dialogue with preexisting features (physical or otherwise) that enable a project including and blending new and existing elements to be developed, just as cuttings are grafted to a tree."

London | 05.11.2014 - 22.12.2014

"When the Graphic Design course at the Royal College of Art opened in 1948, it signalled the beginning of a new era in the education of designers. Out went the old ideas of the ‘Commercial Artist’ and the ‘Poster Artist’, to be replaced by a new concept – the professional graphic designer. [...]
The show celebrates a half-century of creative excellence. Many of the leading graphic design practitioners of the modern era are represented. The exhibition highlights the many ways that RCA graduates and tutors have stood at the forefront of graphic design practice. "

Montréal | 04.11.2014 - 19.04.2015

"'Rooms You May Have Missed' reclaims the significance of inhabitation and is for that reason a collection of domestic spaces—entry porticos, kitchens, bedrooms, closets, dining rooms, courtyards, gardens, vestibules, living rooms, offices, dens and washrooms—as reinvented in the work of two very different architects: Umberto Riva in Milan and Bijoy Jain in Mumbai. Common to their practices is a genuine concern for the details that support living in and our common rituals of waking, bathing, eating, entertaining and sleeping."

FIT - Fashion Institute of Technology | Exposed: A History of Lingerie

FIT - Fashion Institute of Technology | Exposed: A History of Lingerie | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

New York | 03.06.2014 - 15.11.2014

"As the final barrier to the nude body, lingerie is simultaneously modest and erotic—and it remains a subject of enduring fascination. The design of lingerie enhances its allure: it strategically reveals, conceals, and highlights the wearer’s form. As French lingerie designer Chantal Thomass observed, “The essence and attitude of lingerie is all in suggestion.”

Exposed: A History of Lingerie traces developments in intimate apparel from the 18th century to the present. There are two types of lingerie, hard and soft. Hard lingerie includes corsets, bustles, and structured bras, while soft lingerie consists of unstructured garments, such as slips, nightgowns, and panties. As the relationship between dress and the body has been redefined over time, so too have the function and appearance of lingerie."
