VIDEO: Testing the Limits at SCI-Arc

We're totally intrigued by this video documenting the installation of BAUMGARTNER + URIU's site specific work Apertures at SCI-Arc. Requring no additional structural elements, the 16-foot-tall structure instead relies only on its thin surface (1/8") for support, which is crafted from 223 panels of CNC milled from polyurethane foam.

The exhibition wrapped up, but the video provides a compelling story and insight. Take a look.

Workbook: Mountain Chic for the New Belgium Ranger Station

Scout Regalia's design for Snowmass Village's New Belgium Ranger Station features a contemporary take on mountain design. Photography by Laure Joliet/Courtesy Scout Regalia.For Benjamin Luddy and Makoto Mizutani, the New Belgium Ranger Station (a restaurant and bar with a warm, contemporary take on its namesake just next to the lifts and gondola in Snowmass Village, Colorado) represents a return to their roots. You see, the pair received master’s degrees at SCI-Arc and have been practicing together since 2006 at their multi-faceted, LA–based design studio, Scout Regalia. There, they have been designing furniture, home products and graphic identities. With the Ranger Station, they’ve completed their first built architectural project.

Workbook: Bridging the Gap

Trois Mec, the new Los Angeles restaurant from chef Ludovic Lefebvre (late of L’Orangerie, Bastide, Ludo Bites, and Top Chef Masters to name just a few) and Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo, of Animal and Son of a Gun fame, challenges the traditional approach to dining—for starters, instead of reservations, guests purchase timed tickets for entry. For our purposes, though, one of the most compelling parts of the restaurant, housed in a former pizza joint that still maintains its unassuming facade, just may be the chairs.

Peter Zellner Lecture at SCI-Arc

Matthew Marks Gallery (Photo Courtesy of ZellnerPlus)Peter Zellner, of the Venice-based firm Zellnerplus, will present a lecture this evening at SCI Arc titled "Practices & Projects". He is also a faculty member at the school where he co-coordinates the Future Initiatives postgraduate urban design program with David Bergman. Zellner has held visiting Professorships in Architecture at UC Berkeley, FIU, the University of Southern California, the Ecole Speciale d’Architecture in Paris and the Institut für Städtebau und Raumplanung (Institute for Urban Design & Urban Planning) at the University of Innsbruck, Austria.

Reburbia Competition (Photo Courtesy of ZellnerPlus)Zellner's firm is unique in its combination of services—ranging from site analysis, space programming, and design to real estate analysis, facilities location strategies, and urban design. In 2010, Harper’s Bazaar included Zellner in its Editor’s Selection “Best of What’s New—Designers to Watch.” In January 2012, Zellner completed his first free-standing building, the Matthew Marks Los Angeles Gallery. Los Angeles Times architecture critic Christopher Hawthorne described the project as "one of the most conspicuous architectural debuts to appear in Southern California in a number of years" and named Zellner one of "10 Faces to Watch in 2012 in Dance, Theater, Architecture and Art."

The lecture is this Wednesday, September 26, at 7pm at the W.M. Keck Lecture Hall and will begin with an introduction by Eric Owen Moss.

Alexis Rochas of SCI-Arc Presents STEREO.BOT

Stereo.Bot (Courtesy of SCI-Arc)Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) will present Alexis Rochas' installation of STEREO.BOT this Friday at the school's Library Gallery. The exhibition documents the creative process behind the Coachella Gateway Pavilion, which Rochas designed and built for the 2012 Coachella Music Festival in Indio, Calif. The freestanding structure measured 70 feet in width and 35 feet in height and featured over 18 hours of video content.

Stereo.Bot (Courtesy of SCI-ArcThe exhibition will feature dynamic architectural models, 3D mapping projections, and documentary material that follows the development of the project from inception to realization. The pavilion concept was born out of a collaborative initiative seeking to fuse architecture, art, and engineering into a unique, immersive experience. The project combines innovative 3D building systems developed by STEREO.BOT, 4D generative visuals created by Bryant Place of Sensory Sync, and state-of-the-art engineering by Bruce Danziger of Arup Los Angeles.

Stereo.Bot (Courtesy of SCI-Arc)Stereo.Bot shows from August 3rd through September 23rd. An exhibition discussion will take place on Friday, September 14th and a Reception will be held on Friday September 21st.
