House | A Dream

HOUSE | A DREAM

Have you ever seen an amazing house in an architecture magazine or a movie and been awestruck by its beauty, its location, or its simplicity? Be it Bilbo Baggins’ house in The Hobbit, or Tony Stark‘s stunning Malibu home in the Iron Man; be it the solitary Falling Water amidst the nature by Frank Llyod Wright, or a house in a beautiful European town like Mykonos; there is a lot of great architecture when it comes to houses. The idea for the competition arose out of a simple discussion in an auto-rickshaw when two architects were discussing their ‘dream houses’.

INTRODUCTION

For centuries the population undertook great efforts to materialize the worship to their gods. Some examples are offerings, rituals, monuments or buildings, depending on their culture. The construction of churches was very important for the development of architecture. Every project took the constructions systems and technology of that time to its limit, generating suggestive spaces which transcended religions.

Rome, the crib of occidental civilization, witnessed multiple religious constructions along history. The juxtaposed layers throughout history include the first temples of the Roman Empire such as the Pantheon, to current Christian churches like the St. Peter´s Basilica, among others. Each building

This article was originally published by Metropolis Magazine as "The Build Up."

This November, the Manetti Shrem Museum on the University of California, Davis, campus opened to the public. Designed by New York City–based SO-IL with the San Francisco office of Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, the museum pays homage to the agricultural landscape of California’s Central Valley with an oversize roof canopy. The steel members of the 50,000-square-foot (4,650-square-meter) shade structure, nearly twice the size of the museum itself, reference the patterning of plowed fields and create a welcoming outdoor space for visitors. It is both expressive and practical, but getting that balance wasn’t easy.

SO-IL, founded by Florian Idenburg and Jing Liu in 2008, has a portfolio filled with smaller projects, installations, and exhibition-related work. The Manetti Shrem Museum is easily the firm’s largest work to date, demanding a rigorous design-build process while maintaining a strong conceptual vision. In short, it required architecture.

“Re-Constructivist Architecture” Exhibition Explores the Lost Art of Architectural Language

Re-Constructivist Architecture,” an exhibition now on show at the Ierimonti Gallery in New York, features the work of thirteen emerging architecture firms alongside the work of Coop Himmelb(l)au, Peter Eisenman and Bernard Tschumi. The title of the exhibition is a play on words, referring to the De-Constructivist exhibition of 1988 at the Museum of Modern Art that destabilized a certain kind of relationship with design theory.

This reconstruction is primarily of language. The architects draw from archives—mental, digital or printed on paper—distant from the typical parametric and highly schematic rationales that characterized the last thirty years of design in architecture. Within the theoretical system that drives architectural composition, these archives inevitably become homages, references, and quotes.
