JA+U Interviews Japanese Architect Kumkio Inui

JA+U presents this brief interview with Japanese Architect Kumiko Inui of the Office of Kumiko Inui.  The interview gives an inside look at to how architects choose to design.  In Inui’s case, she explains how drawing and sketching is a way for her to explore her ideas in concepts, schematics and tectonics.  Sometimes these ideas are not fully formed and Inui uses sketching as a strategy to let her mind wander and unfold her various thoughts on the architectural problems before her.  Through iteration and reinterpretation, Inui explains how an idea from the depths of her subconscious, eventually surfaces.

My Motherhood + Architecture Adventure / Samara Greenwood

In a recent article for The Guardian, Hannah Rosin interviewed Emily White, a Facebook executive, who noted that our lives are no longer about work/life balance, but rather the work/life “merge.” Much like women in high-power executive positions,   (and particularly mothers) similarly must learn how to negotiate never-ending demands – from the workplace and the home – on a daily basis.

Samara Greenwood discusses this difficult “work/family equation” below. You can find the full, un-edited version at Parlour: Women, Equity, Architecture, If you like this post, you may also enjoy Work/Life/Work balance, by Andrew Maynard.

My own motherhood + architecture adventure began six years ago – so far, it has been a pretty wild ride. There are times I have felt invincible, like I’ve found the magic key to a brilliant life. But more often than not life has felt out of whack, like something wasn’t quite right. Again and again, I’ve attempted to put my finger on the problem, to find the missing piece of the jigsaw. Sometimes I succeed, and sometimes I don’t.

I don’t think I am alone.

Venice Biennale 2012: ModellStudiengang

© Nico Saieh

The artists in this installation share, with Thomas Demand, a very particular attitude towards models, which stems from their engagement with architecture. Models, according to Demand, are ways of understanding the environment without the distraction of a multitude of diverging stimulations. They are pieces of cultural technology.

Renzo Piano is not an architect

© Building Workshop

Well, according to the UK’s Architects Registration Board (ARB) he isn’t.

Last week, BDOnline received an email from the ARB asking them to refrain from calling Renzo Piano and Daniel Libeskind an architect, since “they are not registered with the ARB they are not entitled to be described as such”.

The statement said: “BD referred to two eminent individuals as architects – neither of whom are on the UK register. This is one of a number of peripheral areas, and architects often contact us when they are concerned about the use of the title ‘architect’ in the press although no breach of the legislation in fact occurs.”
