Architecture engages a culture’s deepest social values and expresses them in material, aesthetic form.
Mapping Production is a week long Program being held from 10th – 18th June 2017 at Alserkal Avenue. ARCHITECTEM is invested in delivering academically driven Programs to the architecture and design community with the aim of enriching the Architectural fabric of Dubai.
Drawing inspiration from Al Quoz, the Mapping Production Program is composed of two parts:
a.Dialogues Series, and
b. Mapping Workshop.
Mapping Production will be a ground for research, learning, networking and mentoring between academics and students from different architecture programs, and professionally practicing architects in the UAE. We are especially interested in the observations and dialogue that will arise within and from the workshop.
Studio SUMO is a New York based practice, focused on innovative design involving extensive research, formal exploration, and material invention. Embracing physical, social, and cultural contexts, as forces that shape design, both partners Sunil Bald and Yolande Daniels are directly involved with each project.
ARCHITECTEM held a conversation with Sunil Bald, about his studio, a recent project – the iHouse Dormitory complex for Josai International University, and the sesitivity of designing in Japan. Sunil Bald divides his time working between New York and Tokyo, and is Associate Professor at the Yale School of Architecture.
Earlier this week, OMA designed Concrete, opened its doors at Alserkal Avenue, in Dubai. A beautifully balanced symphony of monochrome textures, deep colors and translucent screens. Featuring circular ceiling tracks and movable panels – all elements to choreograph a dynamic space for performance and display. The inaugural exhibition, “Syria: Into the Light” showcased a collection based on the theme of ‘Portraits and Figures’.
ARCHITECTEM was at the opening reception, capturing details and embedded events within Concrete, its conversation with the art, the visitors and its context.
