I enjoyed working on a proposal with Mobile Studio recently for Constructing Communities. This evening at the RIBA building on Great Portland Street, Julie Cormie is giving a pecha kucha on ‘Flipping Bricks’, our proposal for an architectural intervention driven by real-time train data.
I’m looking forward to the long weekend, going to spend a bit of time at the Channa Horwitz exhibition at Raven Row. It’s on until Sunday 1 May 2016.
Q: How would you define yourself with respect to a decorator? an interior architect? a stylist?
A: I wouldn’t.
One of 29 questions posed by Madame L’Amic and answered by Charles and Ray Eames. The resulting Design Q & A formed the conceptual basis of the exhibition Qu’est ce que le design? (What is Design?) at the Louvre. I believe the exhibition was held in 1969, though I have seen 1972 listed elsewhere.
The transcript and video are available online. For best results however, see it at the excellent The World of Charles and Ray Eames exhibition designed by 6a architects and John Morgan studio. It’s on at the Barbican until 14 February 2016.
Surprised/embarrassed to say I had never heard of Sonia Delaunay or her work before this Guardian review. Looks impressive. The EY exhibition: Sonia Delaunay is on at Tate Modern 15 April – 9 August 2015.
Very impressed by Atelier Ji’s quality, saw a few prints they have made on behalf of their clients at the Hepworth Wakefield Print Fair. Their flyer was printed on lovely paper, the (super kind) guy at the stall said it was Somerset. Somerset satin 300gsm? Lots of prints on their site seem to be on that stock.
