Each year the League selects eight emerging practitioners through a juried, invited portfolio competition. The Emerging Voices award spotlights individuals and firms based in the United States, Canada, or Mexico with distinct design voices and the potential to influence the disciplines of architecture, landscape design, and urbanism. The jury reviews significant bodies of realized work and considers accomplishments within the design and academic communities. The work of each Emerging Voice represents the best of its kind, and addresses larger issues within architecture, landscape, and the built environment.

Salvador Macías Corona and Magui Peredo Arenas founded Guadalajara-based Estudio Macías Peredo in 2012 with a focus on design and construction, embracing a critical regionalism in which the craftsman is part of the building process. In their lecture, Macías and Peredo discuss the strong influence that the...

URBAN TV, New Season.

LA CASA ENCENDIDA. [MAD] Spain. 10>13.11.2014
metalocus, SARA REBOLLO, JOSÉ JUAN BARBA.
The next edition of URBAN TV festival is here. This year's films about alternative architectural themes and sustainable architecture such as THE VENICE SYNDROME and MICROTOPIA are particularly interesting. A multidisciplinary programme which includes screenings, debates, visits and urban safaris and shares one common goal: to talk about life and the ecology of cities.

Urban TV and television have been inseparable from the start. In 2014 it will remain so. The festival will gather in its competition the most notable late visuals about urban issues and will organise screenings in order to arise relevant discussions about our cities.

- This year, the discussion forum "Transforming television" dedicated to raising an improvement in the quality of...

Ferran Adrià. Auditing the Creative Process.

[VIDEO] Fundación Telefónica [MAD] Spain. 29.10 > 1.03.2015
metalocus, JOSÉ JUAN BARBA.
The Exhibition called ‘Auditing the Creative Process’ will open its doors on 29 October to 1 March. Fundación Telefónica presents Ferran Adrià's first exhibition on creativity. Almost 1000 m² dedicated to reflecting on the creative process and the interpretation of the elBulli model, and which seek to surprise the visitor and invite them to create and define their own creative profile. For 25 years, from 1987 to 2011, the team at the restaurant in Cala Montjoi worked relentlessly with the aim of making the language of cuisine evolve and find its own essence, always seeking to be as disruptive as possible.

Be warned not to expect an exhibition on cooking.

 

Creative DNA, D-coding, disruptive methodologies, creative auditing, etc. These are the terms that are now on the lips of Ferran and his team, with this new project that stands as the first exhibition ever on creative processes. The key...

AFTERGLOW - Lightsuit Segment.

[VIDEO] from Sweetgrass Productions

Design, VIDEO, Recommendations
From the depth of the creative visuals to the groundbreaking, never-been-done-before scale of the shoot, Afterglow is being hailed as one of the most cinematically profound ski movies ever made. Deep pillows and Alaskan spines, all filmed at night, with massive lights, custom made LED suits, and a national governments worth of logistics, planning, and civil engineering.

It’s only ten minutes long, but Sweetgrass Productions’ Afterglow is arguably the most cinematically profound ski movie ever made. The clip was shot entirely at night —a first for the genre— deep in the backcountry of British Columbia and Alaska, and the breathtaking footage achieved by the Sweetgrass team did not come easily. Sweetgrass’s founder and the director of Afterglow, oversaw crews that illuminated ski runs as long as 2,500...

INsite at The Mies’ Farnsworth House this Weekend. By Luftwerk.

Architecture, Art, VIDEO, TECHNOLOGY
Few weeks ago we presented the work by Luftwerk through Mas Context / Iker Gil at Marina City (see link below). Now it's up to another monument of architecture of the twentieth century. INsite by Luftwerk -Chicago-based artists Petra Bachmaier and Sean Gallero- is an art exhibition that will transform the Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House into a canvas of light and sound. Visitors are invited during the exhibit to see the site in a unique setting after sunset and experience INsite from both the exterior and interior of the house.

INsite celebrates the structural minimalism and transparency of the Farnsworth House. Once illuminated the planes of the architecture will appear to float in darkness with projected light travelling through the glass walls, creating a myriad of reflections. INsite brings a heightened awareness of the house's innate characteristics; it dissolves the structure and distills it into an...

Voices from Venice. Conversations with women architects.

Architecture, VIDEO
The inspiration for this project emerged from the Petition to the Pritzker Architecture Prize Committee to recognize Denise Scott Brown for her work in Robert Venturi's 1991 Prize. Launched in March 2013 by Women in Design, a student group at the Harvard GSD, the Petition evolved to become a far wider advocacy campaign for equal recognition in design professions. Subsequent conversations with Denise Scott Brown and individuals around the world articulated the need to examine the concepts of recognition, inclusion and joint creativity in design.

"Voices from Venice: Conversations at the 2014 Architecture Biennale with Women who Practice Architecture" is a series of one-on-one video interviews conducted by Harvard GSD graduate Caroline James with architects...

Rem Koolhaas on What Ultimately Defines a Building's Design.

[VIDEO] Vanity Fair [San Francisco] USA

Tony Fadell asked Koolhaas: How does contemporary architecture differ around the world and what causes these differences? Below Koolhaas give some interesting answers, watch the video or read the interview between Rem Koolhaas and Nest C.E.O Tony Fadell and Vanity Fair Contributing Editor and Moderator Paul Goldberger speak onstage during "Design in the Digital Age" at the Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts on October 9, 2014 in San Francisco, California.

The panel discussed the role of technology in architecture and design, as well as differing attitudes toward architecture around the world. According to Koolhaas, in countries such as China, where the pace of development is very rapid, decision makers are younger and therefore more open to new and riskier designs.

“I’m critical of the relentless profit motive that...
