Winner of both the public and juried vote of artprize 2014, pakistani artist Anila Quayyum Agha exercises the architecture of the grand rapids art museum in Michigan by infilling it with a dynamic interplay of shadow and light.‘Intersections’ comprises a 6.5-foot laser-cut wooden cube pierced with carefully crafted patterns and illuminated from the inside, which casts expansive, lace-like geometries onto the surrounding walls, ceiling and floor.

  • Sticks and Stones | David Chipperfield | Via
In Berlin, Mies van der Rohe’s Neue Nationalgalerie has begun a new phase with the opening of David Chipperfield’s intervention, a prologue to the imminent restoration which the famed British architect is about to undertake. Completed in 1968, the gallery was Mies’ last project and his final masterpiece; for nearly fifty years, nobody dared to touch it – until now. Marking this event is a large, site-specific installation, created by Chipperfield as an attempt to engage Mies in a spatial experiment (or perhaps a last, apologetic tribute to the 20th century master) moments before he is about to embark on a mission which will, inevitably, transform Mies’ ultimate legacy.

“In New York, where I grew up and where I live and work, I feel acutely aware of the passage of time and the changes left in its wake. Living in a mutable, fast paced city like New York is, in itself, a surreal experience. At times, the world passes us by in soft focus, where details fall to the wayside and the overall tone of our environment is what characterizes our experience of the city. At other times, we find ourselves raptured by specific details, when we focus intently and intensely on the object of our affection and interest.
“My work attempts to capture this variation in experience, by bringing to the forefront the altered reality in which we live. In the city’s moments of tranquility, especially at dusk and when night falls, the looming shapes, diffused light and spectral shadows infuse the recurrent transition with a hushed feeling of magic and anticipation that I seek to capture in my photographs.
“In my newest body of work I turn away from the soft focus, which characterized much of my earlier imagery. In these photographs of the city, there is a very precise, almost hyper-real quality. I am exploring the fine line between urban reality and architectural fiction though surreal portraits of buildings.”

  • Pilgrimage on Modernity | Xavier Delory | Via & nnmprv
Design is constantly contemplating the ways in which it can transcend time, reflecting the values of the current generation while suggesting possibilities for the future. In response, each building, product, and every other creation is an attempt to convey a pristine image, with innovative materials and unprecedented gestures that show no signs of aging. Providing more commentary on the subject, visual artist Xavier Delory has asked ‘what remains of the utopias and the promises of a better future promised by the modern movement at the beginning of the 20th century?’ 
The photoshopped series of images are a tribute to architectural monuments around the world. The first stopover is ‘Villa Savoye’ and its creator Le Corbusier, one of the founding fathers of the modern movement. The iconic structure has been ransacked and vandalized. The ribbon windows that navigate its perimeter have been shattered, haphazard strokes of paint ornament its pilotis, and large pieces of graffiti cover its stark white free façade. The manipulations intend to make a statement about the ‘five points of architecture’, and in turn, highlight the death of modernity.

  • Here Be Dragons | Christopher McCurtin | Tumblr | The Draftery
The method for constructing the drawings was developed as a direct connection and reflection of the partnering research topics, applying three progressing stages of communication and evaluation. Each drawing would begin as a series of small, sporadic sketches, each dealing with a either an Objective or Subjective interpretation of the research, site and/or spatial requirements. These sketches were then gradually combined, via a series of compositional explorations, reworkings and sketch ‘curations’. In the final stage, these were then reimagined as a single stream of consciousness, synergising each of the ideas and explorations into a cohesive architectural proposal.
The earlier stages of the drawings would take place over a series of days or weeks, often emerging from the immediate exploration of ideas, intuitions or research tangents. As these progressed, the drawing cycles become progressively more focused and linear, with the final stage occurring in as few ‘sittings’ as possible.
