Studio-X, Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation’s global network of laboratories launch its Mumbai center to the public on February 10, 2011 with the opening of Architecture of Consequence, the Netherlands Architecture Institute’s (NAi) international traveling exhibition about the role of architecture in social innovation and sustainability.  Studio-X Mumbai is GSAPP’s newest global design center that will explore the future of cities through research, public dialogue, arts and culture.  It will also be joining an existing network of Studio-X labs in New York City, Beijing, and Amman to engage in cross-cultural, interdisciplinary, and cross-continental exchange of knowledge and information.  

“With the addition of each hub in the Studio-X network, this radical experiment in redefining the capacity and role of globally collaborative modes of education, research and action, increases its bandwidth exponentially - creating a new kind of collective brain to think about the always urgent question of the future of cities,” says dean of Columbia’s GSAPP Mark Wigley.

BIG's West57 Residential Building in New York
Tuesday, 08 February 2011 08:03
Danish Architecture firm BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group have designed this new project called West 57 located on West 57th Street between 11th and 12th Avenues in New York.
BIG-West57-02
BIG has taken a step back to survey the rules of the system in Manhattan and is introducing what they describe as “a European typology: the perimeter block”. With an efficient layout and a sense of intimacy, the perimeter block would meet demands for density and security. “In this project, we have married it to the traditional Manhattan high-rise, creating a unique shape which combines the advantages of both:  the compactness of a courtyard building with the airiness and the amazing views of a skyscraper. The form of the building shifts depending on the viewer’s vantage point. From the West Side Highway, it appears to be a pyramid; from West 58th, a dramatic glass spire.”

North Carolina Museum of Art; Raleigh, North Carolina
 by Thomas Phifer and Partners
Friday, 04 February 2011 09:35
The museum is, in essence, a single 65,000-square-foot room, separated by partial height walls into galleries, none a discrete, fully enclosed room.  Overhead, hundreds of elliptical occuli bathe the interior in even, full-spectrum daylight, modulated to filter out damaging rays. In this gently luminous setting, the artwork takes on heightened vividness.  Outside, matte anodized aluminum panels that enclose the building continue the discourse with the landscape.  From oblique vantage points on the exterior, underlying strips of polished stainless steel capture unexpected and scintillating reflections.

 The project The project is recipient of a 2011 American Institute of Architects (AIA) Honor Award for Architecture.
North-Carolina-Museum-Art_ScottFrancesa© Scott FrancesInside the North Carolina Museum of Art, the light of day and the lush surrounding hills have a presence unusual in institutional galleries for art. Overhead, hundreds of elliptical occuli, in long, parallel, coffered vaults bathe the museum’s interior in even, full-spectrum daylight, modulated in intensity by layered materials that filter out damaging rays. In the gently luminous setting, against pure white walls, the artwork takes on heightened immediacy and vividness.
