FORM on Design: Emerson College's New LA Outpost

For a special guest post, Tim Braseth takes us on a tour of the new Emerson College campus designed by Morphosis. Image courtesy ULI-LA.By Tim Braseth

The new $110 million Los Angeles outpost of Boston’s Emerson College by Thom Mayne’s Morphosis Architects hosted a private tour for Urban Land Institute – Los Angeles members on July 10, 2014

Prior to opening the Sunset Boulevard facility, Emerson College leased space in Burbank where students were housed at the Oakwood Apartments. With the opening of the new building, Emerson is able to consolidate its student housing, administrative offices, classrooms, performance studios, screening rooms, audio and computer labs and auditoriums. It’s here where students now complete senior-level coursework and participate in internships in film, television, advertising, journalism and marketing.

Wayback Wednesday: The Mayne Idea

Architect Thom Mayne's career spans over 40 years, and FORM had the distinct pleasure of interviewing the man behind iconic projects such as the one at the Cooper Union in Manhattan. Image via Wikipedia.

Over FORM's 15-year history, we've had the privelege and honor of speaking to some of the most compelling and accomplished architects and designers working. For this month's installment of our Wayback Wednesday series, which highlights some of our favorite articles from the last decade and a half, we're delighted to share an interview our publisher, Ann Gray, FAIA, conducted with Thom Mayne. As we pointed out in the original feeature, which appeared in our January/February 2011 issue, "Thom Mayne is producing work that is more relevant than ever." We're thrilled to be able to share what makes him tick.

The 2013 AIA Gold Medal Goes to Thom Mayne

The Caltrans District 7 Building in Los Angeles. Image via The Architect's Newspaper.Los Angeles-based architect Thom Mayne, FAIA, is growing more accolade-rich every day, if you can believe it. The AIA announced last week that it will award Mayne the 2013 AIA Gold Medal at a ceremony at next year's AIA conference in Denver. According to the AIA announcement, the Gold Medal is awarded to "an individual whose significant body of work has had a lasting influence on the theory and practice of architecture." The AIA cited Mayne's evolution from "rugged iconoclast" to "government works mainstay" and his work in establishing SCI-Arc as cause for the recognition. The 2012 AIA Gold Medal went to Steven Holl. Mayne can add his Gold medal to the mantle next to the Pritzker Prize he received in 2005.

The announcement follows shortly on the heals of the grand opening of Mayne's latest institutional project, the Perot Museum in Dallas, Texas

Morphosis-Designed Perot Museum Opens in Dallas

Image by Mark Knight via Life of an ArchitectThe Perot Museum of Nature and Science, the latest work of Los Angeles-based Morphosis (the firm of Pritzker prize winner Thom Mayne), opened to the public last weekend in Dallas, Texas. Described by the NY Times as “alluring but unsettling,” the building features a ten-story concrete cube punched out by a transparent diagonal cylinder displaying one of the building’s elevators. The theatricality of the building’s circulation elements multiplies throughout the building—producing an effect that NYT reviewer Edward Rothstein describes as typically post-modern: “the visitor is led through a cosmos that can itself be dizzying: miniature worlds of systems and interactions; invocations of things known and half known; sensations, simulations and reflections; accounts of dissolution and evolution.

Morphosis Selected to Design First Building at CornellNYC Tech

The Cooper Union, designed by Morphosis, in the East Village of New York CityLos Angeles Architect Thom Mayne’s firm Morphosis has been selected as the architect for the first of academic building to be built at Cornell University’s high-tech graduate school campus on Roosevelt Island in New York City. Talking to the New York Times about his latest contract, Mayne said that “The goal here is to develop a one-of-a-kind institution,” adding, “It’s got to start from rethinking — innovating — an environment.” Mayne has made famous work of academic contracts before—most notably the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in the East Village. As for what the new building will look like, Mayne tells the NYT that he hasn’t even seen the site plans yet, but he says, “[I like being able to tell you that I don’t have any bloody idea what it’s going to look like.” Skidmore, Owings & Merrill will continue its work with the 20-year build out of the Master Plan for the new campus. Groundbreaking for the Mayne building is expected by 2014, and project completion is expected by 2017.
An Architect’s Newspaper post has more details about the exciting design and engineering team assembled for the first building: “Morphosis will work with Arup as the engineer on the first building, which the team will design to meet a net-zero energy goal; James Corner is on board for landscape.”
