Architecture Students at SCI-Arc Use Tony Smith’s Sculpture ‘Smoke’ as Inspiration for Models of a Hyde Park Branch Library in LA (Sponsored)

M.Arch 1 project by Luiza De Souza

SCI-Arc, the Southern California Institute of Architecture, in Los Angeles is a school that considers architecture an art form capable of engaging with contemporary culture and public imagination. At the graduate level, the school offers creative individuals with an undergraduate degree in any field of study the opportunity to transition into the professional and academic world of architecture through its 3-year professionally accredited Master of Architecture 1 program.

Students in SCI-Arc’s M.Arch 1 come from a wide range of academic and professional backgrounds, but they all share an interest in cultural production. In order to familiarize students with problems central to the discourse of architecture, the program begins with a design studio that sets up a foundation of technical rigor and fine craft while utilizing contemporary architectural tools.

The first studio project uses Tony Smith’s sculpture, Smoke, whose angles offer a difficult drawing and modeling problem for students beginning architectural studies, to initiate a conversation about the techniques used to communicate ideas about geometry, form and space.

Transitioning from two-dimensional drawings into three-dimensional figures, students offer new readings of the formal parts that compose the matrix of Smoke as they build a family of closed physical models. These models launch the development of abstract ideas that shape the students’ proposals for a Hyde Park Branch Library in Los Angeles.

This first semester’s final drawings and models are thus reflections of the students’ individual creative positions, developed over the course’s rigorous exercises, and articulated through a small building proposal.

Following SCI-Arc’s studio model of the practicing architect as educator, this studio was coordinated by Anna Neimark whose professional practice, First Office, was a 2016 Finalist for MoMA PS1’s Young Architects Program.

Don’t Miss Virginia MOCA’s “Turn the Page: The First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose” Before it Closes (Sponsored)

There’s just two weeks left to view Turn the Page: The First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose an exclusive exhibition featuring more than 50 world-renowned artists such as Ron English, Shepard Fairey, Camille Rose Garcia, James Jean, Yoshitomo Nara, Mark Ryden, Todd Schorr, Wayne White, Kehinde Wiley, and others that have never been shown collectively at once. This once-in-a-lifetime exhibition ends December 31 at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) located in Virginia Beach.

This MOCA-curated retrospective celebrates the ten-year anniversary of the new contemporary art magazine Hi-Fructose. Ten years ago, two San-Francisco-based artists, Annie Owens-Seifert and Daniel “Attaboy” Seifert started an art magazine to share the type of art they loved. Over the years, Hi-Fructose magazine has become an influential publication with a devoted international readership, celebrating diverse art that transcends genres from artists who break away from conventional trends.

Hi-Fructose and MOCA have featured some of the same artists over the years so the museum was a great fit to host this unprecedented exhibition that other regions in the U.S. are about to enjoy. Turn the Page will travel to the Akron Art Museum (Akron, Ohio, February 10-May 7, 2017) and then to the Crocker Art Museum (Sacramento, California, June 11-September 17, 2017) before traveling to another location to-be-determined. Please visit virginiamoca.org for more information.
