Notes on Smiljan Radic

As part of our opening festivities for “EXTRA-ORDINARY: New Practices in Chilean Architecture,” on view through mid-September, Smiljan Radic presented insights into his very personal creative process that includes material, contextuality, image, memory, history, technology, and conviction.

“EXTRA-ORDINARY” also features the work of 14 other Chilean architects: Alejandro Aravena, Guillermo Acuña, Aguiló + Pedraza, José Cruz, 57 Studio, GUN, Hevia + Urzúa, Sebastián Irarrázaval, Cristián Izquierdo, Mathias Klotz, Pedro Kovacic, Max Núñez, Cristián Olivi, and Pezo von Ellrhichshausen. Radic has a special place in the exhibition: a single original model, “Death at Home,” along with 20 associated ink drawings. The installation has the immediacy of the hand of the artist; it is original material, and suitably cryptic. Read More

Center for Architecture Announces 2016 Walter A. Hunt, Jr. Scholarship Winner

The Center for Architecture is pleased to announce the winner of the Walter A. Hunt, Jr. Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to a high school senior attending a New York City public or charter school who plans to pursue an undergraduate degree in architecture at an NAAB-accredited school within the U.S. The award amount of $10,000 per year for the first two years of study subsidizes the recipient’s college tuition and related costs.

After careful consideration, Victoria Clarke, a 2016 graduate of LaGuardia High School, was selected to receive the scholarship – her thoughtful submission stood out from the others. During the interview, the jury was impressed with the breadth of her interests in architecture and art, and they look forward to following where her education takes her. Before pursuing her passion for architecture, Clarke was also an accomplished figure skater, and traveled the world at a young age representing the U.S. Read More
