Dorte Mandrup on gender: "I am not a female architect. I am an architect"

Dorte Mandrup on gender: "I am not a female architect. I am an architect" | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
I was mentioned on Dezeen's list of 50 inspirational female architects and designers, to mark International Women's Day back in March. While I greatly appreciated the gesture and sympathise with the idea of giving tribute to the relatively few women who have managed to make their mark on the international world of architecture, I do, however, find these particular kinds of lists a step in the wrong direction.

Allow me to explain; I am not a female architect. I am an architect.

Rarely are women known as female accountants, female lawyers, female taxi drivers or female journalists. But "female architects" seems to be an unshakeable phrase.

When we talk about gender, we tend to talk about women. Men do not really have a gender. They are just… neutral. Non-gender. That is why you do not recognise the term "male architect". It just goes without saying.

Female architects are the exception to that rule. An anomaly worthy of applause and attention once in a blue moon – and International Women's Day seems as blue a moon as any.

When we talk about gender, we tend to talk about women
Groucho Marx famously quipped that he refused to join any club that would have him as a member. You might think that this is my problem. That I simply – due to some private, troubled relationship with my own gender – consider being a woman a personal failure, and that I would rather have go unnoticed. But you would be wrong in that assumption.

I am simply asking for the professional courtesy of being considered an architect, without a pre-fixed set of values or attributes. As a creative person working within a creative field, I rely on my ability to take on complex challenges with a full and multifaceted skill set. I do not approach assignments as a woman, but as a professional architect. But this last part seems to be confusing to many men and women within the business.

IRAN : a ten-year old residential building in new context of city of Yazd - Yast Khaneh / Mohammad Khavarian + Amir Shahrad | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

The project is a ten-year old residential building in new context of city of Yazd that was referred to the architect during the final stages of reconstruction by another team, due to client’s dissatisfaction with the outcome. We started the process with evaluation of the improper functions Juxtaposition and proceed to problems like lack of harmony, identity and unity in building facade (just like other buildings in Yazd new city textures).Regarding the building location on the corner of a junction and having two western and northern facades, an accrete idea for optimum revitalization of the interior and exterior, by means of a proper method, which can fulfill the client and the architect requirements has been quested.

Kazuyo Sejima's Sumida Hokusai Museum in Tokyo Photographed by Laurian Ghinitoiu

Kazuyo Sejima's Sumida Hokusai Museum in Tokyo Photographed by Laurian Ghinitoiu | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Located in Tokyo's Sumida Ward, in which Sumida Hokusai (Katsushika Hokusai) was born and spent the majority of his life, this museum—completed in November 2016 to designs by Kazuyo Sejima—is a temple to the Japanese artist's work, including the likes of The Great Wave off Kanagawa and Red Fuji. Sejima, who was awarded the Priztker Prize in 2010, is commonly known as one-half of SANAA (alongside Ryue Nishizawa). This project, while seeking to celebrate Hokusai's work, has also been designed as a cultural beacon. In this photoset, photographer Laurian Ghinitoiu has turned his lens to the new cultural landmark.

Jean Prévéral, architecte [1923-2017]

 

L'inévitable "transdisciplinarité" de la problématique urbaine (voire sa "transdisciplinarité sauvage", selon Thierry Paquot) nous inviterait néanmoins à quitter ces champs disciplinaires pour se tourner vers la réalité de la pratique de l’architecture et de l’urbanisme, sur le terrain, et ainsi regarder du côté des bureaux d'études ou des praticiens….

 

En effet, sur combien de travaux de natures différentes s'appuient la réflexion et la démarche des architectes ou urbanistes ? Une multitude. Combien de sources de nature différentes faut-il croiser pour saisir, dans son épaisseur, l’histoire de l’architecture, des formes urbaines et du cadre de vie ? Une multitude également.

 

Pour aborder la problématique "Architecture, formes urbaines et cadre de vie" en villes nouvelles, peut-on alors démêler l’écheveau des sources afin de repérer, de réunir, d’organiser et de mettre à jour une collection de références incontournables ? C'était l'enjeu de cette recherche documentaire.

L’art ACCROCHE le wagon du Grand Paris | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Qu’on se le dise : il n’y a officiellement rien de politique dans l’élaboration du Grand Paris, mégaprojet d’aménagement et de développement autour de la capitale. Est-ce cela qui a fait placer l’annonce du Grand Paris Express, le 4 avril, trois semaines avant l’élection présidentielle, comme pour marquer un point de non-retour ? Surtout pas, assure José Manuel ­Gonçalvès, sauveteur du Centquatre, directeur artistique de ce projet qui prévoit l’implantation d’un réseau de transports à 24,9 milliards d’euros. Philippe Yvin, président du directoire de la société du Grand Paris, décrit ainsi la mission du duo : « Leur approche permettra d’inscrire le projet culturel de la société du Grand Paris dans une démarche ouverte et partenariale, pour construire le projet avec tous les acteurs de la métropole, ses voyageurs, ses habitants, ses associations et ses entreprises. La méthode employée par les deux directeurs artistiques va favoriser la prise en compte des propositions et des initiatives venues des usagers, se conjuguant avec l’inter­vention des artistes et la mise en œuvre d’une politique de commandes. » Vaste programme, qui serait donc assez avancé pour qu’on l’annonce urbi et orbi.

The KOOKIEST Chinese Copies, from PompiDON'T to WRONGchamp :)

The KOOKIEST Chinese Copies, from PompiDON'T to WRONGchamp :) | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
By now, most of the architectural world is aware of Chinese architects' penchant for ripping off their favorite works from foreign countries, from the latest Zaha Hadid landmark to entire historical villages. The issue is, admittedly, more complex than many often give it credit for—but even after debating the phenomenon from the perspective of Chinese cultural norms, copyright law, and even whether copycats might actually be good for architecture, China will always have more copycats to puzzle over. Some are baffling, some are in a way impressive, some are even (dare we say it?) even kind of cute. In short, all of them are in some way entertaining. Here are 6 of the strangest.

Les couleurs et la densité extrême de Hong-Kong

Justyna Zduńczyk est une photographe polonaise, elle aussi, comme de nombreux autres photographes que nous vous avons présenté jusqu'alors, passionné par les paysages urbains.

Après avoir photographié Madrid en 2016, Utah en 2015, La Louisiane en 2015, Amsterdam en 2014 et bien d’autres encore… elle a emmené ses objectifs du côté de Hong-Kong.

Dans cette série de photographies, vous pourrez y découvrir toute l'immensité de cette hyper-ville, que ce soit au niveau de sa densité, que de sa population... Mais ce n'est pas tout, car à la vue de ces bâtiments extrêmement denses, on peut éprouver une certaine forme d'esthétisme, rien que dans notre perception des couleurs.

Young Architect Guide: 5 Ways to Tell YOUR Story Through Drawings Alone

Young Architect Guide: 5 Ways to Tell YOUR Story Through Drawings Alone | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
As all architects know, your project proposal is only as convincing as the drawings and models that you use to represent it, whether for your client, the planning committee of a town council or the judging panel of a design competition. While your ideas may be brilliant, they are only of value if you can communicate them convincingly to all of those different audiences, crafting an architectural narrative in a clear and compelling manner.


We’ve talked about how architects can tell the story of their project through spoken or written presentations, but can mediums of visual communication speak louder than words? If you are as talented at drawing as A+Award-winner Jerome Ng, then sketches and illustrations can do just that. Here are five techniques used by Ng in his project “Memento Mori: A Peckham Hospice Care Home” that show how you can tell the story of your project more powerfully then ever before.

Art or Architecture? 13 Projects That BLUR The Boundary

Art or Architecture? 13 Projects That BLUR The Boundary | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Whether architecture is a form of art or not has often been a controversial topic of conversation within the architecture world. If one goes by the general definition of the word "art," architecture could potentially fit within the umbrella term: "the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power." As anyone involved in the architectural discipline probably knows, there is an abundance of varying definitions of the word "architecture," so whether its primary purpose is to achieve beauty or to organize space is evidently up for discussion.

Ask Jay A. Pritzker, founder of the Pritzker Prize, and he may say that "architecture is intended to transcend the simple need for shelter and security by becoming an expression of artistry." Ask The Guardian's Jonathan Jones and he may tell you that "architecture is the art we all encounter most often, most intimately, yet precisely because it is functional and necessary to life, it's hard to be clear about where the 'art' in a building begins." But this ambiguity is part of what makes the field of architecture challenging and exciting. To celebrate this complicated aspect of architecture, below we have collected a list of just some of the works that could be seen as art, architecture or both, depending on who’s looking, to provide some context to those blurry boundaries.

5 Projects That Illustrate the HUGE Potential of Prefab

5 Projects That Illustrate the HUGE Potential of Prefab | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Prefabrication is not a new idea for architects, but its usage is arguably on the rise. Using prefabricated materials can keep your costs down, as well as make your project more sustainable and efficient. But for this to happen, there must be a defined process of construction, which respects the architectural intent and integrates the entire structure with the building's facilities. This way, the work can be carried out in the shortest time possible, and the cost of labor and maintenance is reduced, as is the waste of materials.

The five designs selected below adopt prefabricated materials and demonstrate the benefits that it brings to the creative design strategy. Read on to see what each of their architects said about their prefabrication strategy.

British duo Hufton + Crow visited Bangkok to capture these images of Thailand's tallest tower, which was designed by Ole Scheeren and features modular cutaways spiralling around its facades.

The 77-storey MahaNakhon tower topped out in 2015, becoming the tallest building in the Thai capital at 314 metres. As the project neared completion last year, a series of images posted on Instagram displayed its sculptural exterior form.

Scheeren designed the building for local firm Pace Development while still working at Rem Koolhaas' firm OMA, and completed it with his own studio Büro Ole Scheeren following his departure in 2010.

Höweler + Yoon Architecture Unveils Circus Conservatory Design

Höweler + Yoon Architecture, in collaboration with OFIS Arhitekti, has unveiled its design for a new building for The Circus Conservatory, which will house America’s first accredited degree program in the Circus Arts. Located in Portland, Maine, as the anchor tenant of a peninsula, the project aims to transform an undeveloped part of the city into a “vibrant artistic center complete with public performance venues and recreational facilities.”

Inspired by the historic circus shape—a circle with a radial audience—the design proposal utilizes a radial viewing strategy “in order to similarly activate the educational community.” Furthermore, in the design, acrobatics, performance, and classroom spaces are treated equally, “[challenging] the viewing relationship crucial to a circus and academic settings.”

7 Architectural Experiments that FAILED Spectacularly

7 Architectural Experiments that FAILED Spectacularly | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Experimentation in architecture is what propels the discipline forward. In an ideal scenario, once a project gets as far as the planning stage, large amounts of careful research and collaboration between the architect, contractor, and client contribute to a smooth execution of an exploratory idea, and ultimately a successful end product. But it’s not uncommon for even the most skilled architects to design work that has a misstep somewhere along the line, whether it has to do with shrinking budget, unforeseen contextual changes, lack of oversight, or anything in between. In some way, the projects here all fall into the second category of failed experiments, but some have also become potential models for revitalization of existing buildings, rather than (less sustainable) demolition and reconstruction. Read on to discover what went wrong in these notable disasters.

How 'VANDALIZING' a Classic Exposes the Hypocrisy of Today's Modernists

How 'VANDALIZING' a Classic Exposes the Hypocrisy of Today's Modernists | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
These images from artist Xavier Delory show Le Corbusier's celebrated Villa Sovoye in a shocking state of disrepair. With stones and spray paint, vandals have tragically defaced its pristine walls and windows. Don't panic: the images shown here are photoshopped. But what if they weren't? In this article originally published by Metropolis Magazine as "Modernism in Ruins: Artist "Vandalizes" a Le Corbusier Masterpiece," AJ Artemel explores how our shock and dismay at such images exposes an underlying hypocrisy in our reverence for famous modernist works, and proposes that perhaps Modernism and vandalism are more closely related than we thought.

Korean Curiosity: Is Seoul Experiencing a "Neo-BRUTALIST Revival"?

Korean Curiosity: Is Seoul Experiencing a "Neo-BRUTALIST Revival"? | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
During his frequent travels to Seoul, Hong Kong- and Singapore-based photographer Raphael Olivier noticed a new trend taking the South Korean capital: a crop of geometric, concrete buildings of all genres. He calls the new style Neo-Brutalism, after the modernist movement that proliferated in the late 1950s to 1970s, in which raw concrete was meant to express a truth and honesty. Olivier's observation led him to capture the phenomenon in a personal photo series—a photographic treasure trove of these projects which, when taken as a whole, uncovers a cross-section of this trend in the city's architecture.
