Video: Haunch of Venison, Gallery Re-launch

Representing a cross-section of some of the most renowned contemporary artists, Haunch of Venison has recently moved out of Burlington Gardens, where it has been for the past few years, back to its former home in the Haunch of Venison Yard, with architect Annabelle Selldorf overseeing the redesign. With another branch in New York, the gallery represents, amongst others, Turner Prize nominees Richard Long, Simon Patterson and Nathan Coley. We catch up with the gallery’s International Director Matt Carey-Williams and Iraqi artist Ahmed Alsoudani who shows us around his current exhibition.

Films & Architecture: “Rear Window”

We come back to the 1950s to remember one of the great masters of modern film making, . In Rear Window, most of the scenes are recorded from the limited view of one single room. Things within a housing complex seems to work fine for everyone but not for this photographer that is forced to see the world from the same perspective every day.

Let us know what are your thoughts about this classic Hitchcock’s work and we wait for any recommendation for keep going with the list!

Screenplay / Oyler Wu Collaborative


Utilizing the simplest of materials – a lightweight steel frame and rope - Oyler Wu Collaborative have crafted a dynamic 21-foot long screen wall conceived of as a ‘play’ on one’s visual perception.  The geometry of the composition, strengthened by the care with which the 45,000 linear feet of rope is strung through the frame, results in a thick undulating screen that, although derived from technical complexity, is manifested in an elegant visual.  The wall was displayed at the LA Convention Center during Dwell on Design this summer, and, as illustrated by the video, provoked the curiosity of the viewer to physically and visually engage with the work.

More about the wall, plus great photos, after the break.

The expansion project for the Radio Museum in , Spain is built around a new courtyard, which houses the entrance to the building and provides support for “sound” connection with the old museum. Designed by VAUMM arkitekturak and Taperstudio, the piece is inserted in the historic center offering a renewed image from the traditional imaginary. The connection of the volumes at the end of the courtyard and the inner spatial distribution, organizing servant and served spaces, enable a clear and easy travel throughout the building. More images and architects’ description after the break.

Parlour: Women, Equity, Architecture

Through research, discussions and essays from a variety of resources, Parlour: Women, Equity, Architecture is a platform, a coach, and an inspiration that is available to worldwide in an effort to bridge the gender gap that exist in the historically male dominant profession of architecture.  Launched by a team of scholars led by Dr. Naomi Stead from The University of Queensland and developed and edited by Justine Clark from The University of Melbourne, this website is relevant to all members of the profession,  and men, in all parts of the world. It highlights the reasons why gender gaps are felt as in “implicit bias” whether in pay scale or upward mobility, even though discrimination and prejudices may not be explicit.  In this regard, the website and its collection of resources, aims to create a forum for a dialogue about the actual and perceived barriers that empowers women to challenge the social structure that fosters this proven under-representation, whether it is due to professional practices and “gendered behavioral practices” or pressures that women feel to leave the profession at a much higher rate than men.
