Apply to SVA’s MA in Design Research

It was the great design scholar Ferris Bueller who once said, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” New York’s School of Visual Arts has heeded the need for speed and the importance of looking around with a one-year MA in design research, writing, and criticism. The graduate program, which launched earlier this year, is an evolution of D-Crit (the two-year MA program in design criticism that has been sharpening design minds since 2008) streamlined into two semesters and eight months of studying images, objects, and environments, and learning ways to construct multi-format narratives that bring them to life from a faculty that includes Steven Heller, MoMA’s Paola Antonelli, and Murray Moss. “The program’s curriculum charts the cutting edge of design practice and is responsive to exciting developments in the media landscape,” says Alice Twemlow, the program’s founding chair. Applications are now being accepted for the fall 2015 class (Psst: we hear significant scholarships are available), with a “priority deadline” of January 15. Tell ‘em UnBeige sent you.

100 Designers, 100 Years: A Collectible Celebration of AIGA’s Centennial

Unbeige - Mon, 01/05/2015 - 12:07


aigaWhere can you find new yet (relatively) historical work by Milton Glaser, Michael Bierut, Chip Kidd, Tom Geismar, Paula Scher, Abbott Miller, Gail Anderson, Stephen Doyle, Carin Goldberg, Alexander Isley, and ninety other design luminaries? In the insta-collection created to commemorate the AIGA’s centennial. One hundred designers—a mix of AIGA medalists, fellows, and presidents from across the country—were asked to select a year from 1914 to 2014 and design a social, political, or cultural statement about that year. The printing wizards at MOO then transformed their works into a hefty, century-spanning stack of suitable-for-framing flyers that is yours for $30 (plus $5 shipping), with a percentage of proceeds going to the AIGA Legacy Fund.

Leip(zig) into the New Year!

Happy 2015! As you celebrate the new year and encase your Massimo Vignelli-themed, 2014-capping “The Lives They Lived” issue of The New York Times Magazine in protective plastic, take a moment to remember the life and career of photographer Arthur Leipzig, who died earlier this month at the age of 96. The Brooklyn native captured this invigorating image in 1948, several years after he began photographing New York children a play, a project inspired by Children’s Games, a 1560 painting by Flemish master Pieter Bruegel the Elder, notes Douglas Martin in the photographer’s New York Times obituary, adding, “Mr. Leipzig was intrigued, he said, that the games played in Renaissance-era Flanders were similar to the ones he observed outside his window.”

Finally Free of Scaffolding, L.A.’s Broad Museum Comes into Full View

Let others revel in the swiftly fading highlights of 2014; we prefer to look forward to the art and design milestones of 2015. The view became a bit clearer today, even in smog-prone Los Angeles, with the removal of the final scaffolding from the exterior facade of the Broad, Eli and Edythe Broad‘s $140 million contemporary art museum in the making on Grand Avenue, to reveal the full “veil” wrapping the Diller Scofidio + Renfro-designed building.

Don’t be fooled by its perforated appearance and wispy name: the veil is a structural exoskeleton comprised of 2,500 fiberglass-reinforced concrete panels and 650 tons of steel designed to “drape” over The Broad and appear to lift up at the south and north corners to define two street-level entrances. The Grand Avenue side of the veil (pictured) is punctured by an architectural feature that DSR calls “the oculus.”

Year-End Zen: Watch How Ink Is Made

Unbeige - Tue, 12/30/2014 - 20:26

ink blobIf we learned anything from Sesame Street, it was that Manhattan is a land where children not only keep llamas as pets but also take said mammals to avuncular dentists (it’s little wonder we ended up living here) and that most any industrial process could be made fascinating and quasi-educational through careful editing and the appropriate soundtrack. And so, as you busy yourself with plans to ring in the 2015—with or without your pet llama and/or dentist—enjoy this soothing look at how ink is made, courtesy of the good people at Canada’s Printing Ink Company and Beethoven‘s Emperor concerto, his last for the piano.

Quote of Note | Martin Filler

The Fondation Louis Vuitton, designed by Frank Gehry (Photo: Iwan Baan)

“It is axiomatic among architectural editors and art directors that if a building is not very good, then one should use images of it at sundown; if it is worse than that, show it reflected in water at twilight. This perhaps explains why several publications, including Architectural Digest, Vanity Fair, and The New York Times, have depicted Gehry‘s newest work in a dim crepuscular glow, rising above its shallow pools and dramatic stepped cascade. Recourse to special photographic lighting does address one of the Fondation Louis Vuitton’s basic shortcomings, however, for in a city where it is overcast much of the time, a glass-skinned structure such as this is bound to look rather dull quite often.”

Iwan Baan on His Famous Post-Sandy Photo, Rising Sea Levels, and Photography by Drone

Unbeige - Mon, 12/29/2014 - 13:34

IB speakingStarchitects rarely agree on anything, except when it comes to who should photograph their latest creations. On that matter there has, over the past several years, emerged near unanimity: new buildings are best introduced to the world through the lens of Iwan Baan.

The 39-year-old Dutch photographer burst onto the scene less than ten years ago, after a 2005 proposal to Rem Koolhaas turned into Baan’s first major project: documenting the construction of the OMA-designed China Central Television (CCTV) headquarters in Beijing. Since then, his placid-looking name has appeared regularly beneath images of the work of Herzog & de Meuron, SANAA, Toyo Ito, Steven Holl, and Diller Scofidio + Renfro, and in the pages of The New York Times (today for example), Domus, Abitare, and The New Yorker. Consequently, Baan estimates that he spends “less than one day a month” in his ostensible home base of Amsterdam. “I live out of a suitcase,” he says. “I’ve traveled nonstop for basically the last ten years.”

He and his suitcase recently stopped in Los Angeles for a talk that kicked off Sink or Swim: Designing for Sea Change, an exhibition on view through May 3, 2015 at the Annenberg Space for Photography. After a whirlwind tour of Dutch stratgies to withstand watery incursions—from dikes and dunes to operable sea walls and artificial sand barriers—Baan arrived at another Dutch settlement: Manhattan, where he happened to arrive in 2012 (to photograph Herzog & de Meuron’s new Parrish musuem) just a day before Hurricane Sandy did. With his downtown hotel plunged into darkness and the museum opening postponed, his first instinct was…to find a helicopter.

Watch: Architectural Shell Game

Unbeige - Mon, 12/29/2014 - 11:14


Meet Archibald, an idealistic and egocentric architect of vaguely European extraction who endures daily struggles with colleagues, employees, clients, contractors, civil servants, consultants, architecture critics and other building industry types. He shares an office with his engineer partner, Gerald; an exploited intern named Ralph; John the IT guy; and Mr. Shan, the strange Asian cardboard model builder. Their misadventures are chronicled in arch., a comic strip by Belgian architect and cartoonist Mike Hermans, a.k.a. Maaik, that comes alive in a series of animated shorts such as this one, an architectural take on three-card monte.

Friday Photo: Of Gaudí and Man

Unbeige - Fri, 12/26/2014 - 14:19


Barcelona’s La Sagrada Familia gets its close-up in Swiss filmmaker Stefan Haupt’s Sagrada: The Mystery of Creation, a documentary making the theatrical rounds. The beloved basilica, Antoni Gaudí‘s French Gothic-meets-Art Nouveau fever-dream sand castle, is still in progress, its construction having been stalled by conflict (Spanish Civil War, World War I, World War II) and financial famine since it was commissioned by the Order of St. Joseph in 1882.

Sagrada, now playing at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, celebrates Gaudí’s vision and the ongoing work of laborers, artisans, designers and architects to complete the colossal project. Haupt envisioned the film as a biography of the building. “Just like human beings, buildings and artistic creations have their biography and their genesis,” he says. “They have an origin, ‘parents,’ a moment of creation and birth and then a life until they are accomplished—or destroyed—with a possible continuation in a modified form.”
