Jeffrey Kipnis reviews some projects by Andrew Zago, including the Cipher installation, the Misregistration (Box Problem), the 2009-12 Elevation studies, the Boing! chair, and the Rialto project for MOMA’s Foreclosed: housing the American dream. Kipnis stresses the difference between acrobatics and magic, links with work by Elena Manferdini and Kipnis himself.

Eric Owen Moss introduces Zvi Hecker, setting Hecker apart from the superficial, loud, short-lived, and mediocre. Hecker discusses some of his earlier work. He comments on the importance of overcoming the sterility of a solitary idea which will not lead to other ideas. Hecker presents a design for housing and a commercial center in Tel Aviv which he started by integrating the geometry of the Gozo Citadel in Ferrara and continued by created geometries derived from the original citadel form.

Introduction by:

Hecker discusses some of his earlier work. He comments on the importance of overcoming the sterility of a solitary idea which will not lead to other ideas. Hecker presents a design for housing and a commercial center in Tel Aviv which he started by integrating the geometry of the Gozo Citadel in Ferrara and continued by created geometries derived from the original citadel form. Hecker presents several projects that are organized as a spiral. Some have a structural core at the center for taller structures, and others have a courtyard at the center for lower structures. Hecker shows a series of images of completed spiral houses. He compares their working drawings to Piranesi’s prisons. Hecker describes a project for a Jewish cultural center in Duisburg, Germany as the last of the spiral designs. The building extends into the surrounding park, allowing visitors to pass through parts of the building without entering. Hecker wanted his design for the Palmach Museum of History in Tel-Aviv, to “respect the soil,” and so it left much of the site intact, including the slope of the street and the existing trees.

Ming Fung introduces Monica Ponce de Leon, and her work with Nader Tehrani at Office dA. For Fung, their work is characterized by the rigorous assembly of materials, and evolving figurative geometries. She concludes the introduction with an overview of professional design awards received by the firm.

Introduction by:

Monica Ponce de Leon recalls her time teaching at SCI-Arc in 2002, and revisits one of her firms earlier projects, a 1996 commission by MOMA, New York for an installation utilizing laser-cut steel panels. She documents a series of projects inspired by her research at Georgia Tech, including a prototype for a gas station in Los Angeles for British Petroleum.

Roberto Davolio Form And Structure

March 27, 2009 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Roberto Davolio explains the process of transitioning from computer design to reality, utilizing advanced parametric design, scripting and rational geometry for the rationalization of surfaces for the sake of cost estimation and standardization of complex facades. By using software programs such as Digital Project, and Maya, architects are able to negotiate structural systems with engineers. Through implementation of a systematic approach, one can rationalize cladding systems of organic shapes, through parametric modeling, testing of surfaces, and analyzation of geometric relationships. Further examples of intelligent and flexible scripts, which allow for the understanding of structural performance and geometrical mutations with real-time results.

Davolio discusses his office tower/shopping mall project Lux China, in Shanghai, China. He discusses the parametric modeling as a means by which to create cladding systems, through a systematic approach. Davolio defines pattern definitions by assigning geometrical constraints, in pursuit of continuity of pattern and standardization. Therefore ideal surfaces are translated into rationalized surfaces.
