Killed by the Architects
Presented by: Sara M. Anwar
.
Wednesday, 23 August 2017
7:00 - 8:30 PM
Bahrain Fort Site Museum, Presentation Hall
.
‘Killed by the Architects’ is a reference to having lost a life in a video game due to a ‘fall or the wall’. In other words, due to the designed conditions.
.
Expanding on this understanding of Architecture as a sequence of environments, the talk explores layers of experiences through the construct of Narratives, tracing the axis from the Duomo leading to Arco della Pace through Castello Sforzesco in Milan.
.
Sara M. Anwar is the Director of @architect.em ARCHITECTEM, a Dubai based Platform promoting Academic Architectural Dialogue in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia.

This event is open to all.

  • Invisible Museum : : BIG \\ Blåvand, Denmark 
Danish firm BIG designs an "invisible museum" , by cutting linear passageways out of the sand dune beside a bunker built by German forces during the second world war. "The architecture of the Tirpitz is the antithesis to the world war two bunker. The heavy hermetic object is countered by the inviting lightness and openness of the new museum. The galleries are integrated into the dunes like an open oasis in the sand – a sharp contrast to the Nazi fortress' concrete monolith. The surrounding heath-lined pathways cut into the dunes from all sides descending to meet in a central clearing, bringing daylight and air into the heart of the complex." @bjarkeingels 📸 PhotoCredits : Mike Bink , Rasmus Hjortshøj and Colin Seymour

Back in 2007, several signature projects in Beijing’s dramatic redevelopment were coming to completion. Just a block away from Tiananmen Square in the heart of the city, the wondrous dome of Paul Andreu’s National Grand Theatre was gearing up for its opening season of performances. In such a prominent site, the ellipsoidal titanium shell emerges like an island from the centre of a reflecting lake, maintaining a delicate balance with its culturally significant neighbours.

In the words of the architect - We strove to create a building  that shows respect for the buildings around it, each of which marks in varying degrees the history of architecture in China, but that demonstrates the vitality of modern architecture by being as bold as they were in their day. We have sought to achieve this harmony through a combination of modesty and ambition, agreement and opposition, and have made improvements at every stage thanks to the valuable comments and suggestions we received.

  • Exhibit installation design by #lightspacedesign for Hamdan International Photography Award @thedubaimall showcasing black and white photography from local and international photographers.

A dynamic and spatial exhibit design with extremely clean and sleek execution. The choice of modules of shifted planes of frames to hold the back lit photographs, versus traditional wall panels, promotes meandering circulation and a highly immersive experience.

  • Originally located at 154, avenue des Champs-Elysées, a suite designed for an apartment owned by Harold Harmsworth, the first Viscount Rothermere is on its way to Abu Dhabi.

Co-founder of the Daily Mail in 1896, he commissioned Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann after his participation at the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes. 
In a recent article by Nick Leech for The National newspaper (available online), you can read the fascinating hard word on the moving this room from France to its new home at Louvre Abu Dhabi.

Photo for @nytmag Rarely has a material so inclined to stay put been wrenched so insistently out of place and carried so far from its source," writes Sam Anderson in this weekend's @nytmag. In Italy’s most marble-rich area, known as the Apuan Alps, the abundance is surreal. Hundreds of quarries have operated there since the days of ancient Rome and Michelangelo sculptured most of his statues from this stone. Now the trade is booming due to the demand in Saudi Arabia and other gulf states. @lucalocatellphoto's photographs of this area's majestic quarries reveal their own isolated world: beautiful, bizarre and severe.
