The Edward Cella Art + Architecture (ECAA) Gallery announced a solo exhibition by contemporary West-coast architect Frederick Fisher (principal, Frederick Fisher and Partners of Los Angeles). Entitled Frederick Fisher: Thinking by Hand, this exhibition of new and recent watercolors explores the form making process and composition strategies Fisher employs when envisioning and creating proposals for a wide variety of potential architectural commissions. Surprisingly, this is Fisher's first solo exhibition in Los Angeles. His jewel like watercolors will be on view April 21, through May 22, 2010. An opening reception will be held Saturday, April 24, 2010, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm.

Thursday, 28 January 2010 11:07
The Living Building Challenge was launched just three years ago. It is a green building standard, that has attracted the attention of deep-green building industry professionals throughout North America, as well as from several countries around the world. 

70 Living Building Challenge projects are already in some stage of design or construction. The first Living Buildings are expected to be certified this year – the building actually having performed as modeled for one full year before receiving certification.

To make it easier for those who want to join this vanguard, the International Living Building Institute (ILBI) introduces its first nationwide outreach: the Living Building Challenge Road Show.

Ismar Cirkinagic + a-lab

ML2090 First Phase
23th January – 14th March, Copenhagen/ Denmark


Kunsthallen Nikolaj presents the installation Brick of Enlightenment by the Danish-Bosnian artist Ismar Cirkinagic in collaboration with the architectural office a-lab.
The exhibition is the first phase of three in the project ML2090, and is a visual examination of staging power based on the novel 1984 by George Orwell.


Bricks of Enlightenment in Kunsthallen Nikolaj is based on the idea of the Ministry of Love, that in Orwell's novel is a ministry in charge of public love and loyalty to the "Big Brother" in the super state Oceania. The book only gives a sparse description of the building of the Ministry of Love and its appearance. On the basis of an artistic research around the little information that Orwell gives on the Ministry of Love, Cirkinagic visualizes this building in the exhibition, in the form of physical architectural structures, light and sound installations. Cirkinagic has in collaboration with a-lab created a visualization of a building that usually only exists in the reader's imagination.
