Store Design Program Engages Students in Real-World Design Problems

The Center for Architecture’s Education Department had the opportunity to work with numerous audiences to explore the complexities of store design. Whether a student’s interest in the design of a retail space is determined by addressing real needs or entertaining the idea of a new shopping concept, the young designer will need to address many design challenges along the way. IS 234 in Sheepshead Bay was interested in engaging their 6th through 8th grade math classes in real-world design problems. Students began by attending the Scale Model Building Student Day at the Center for Architecture, a crash course in architectural scale and why it is an important tool to learn. Architectural plan graphics were introduced by looking at former Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s micro-unit proposal, a 300-square-foot residence laid out as a full-scale plan on the floor of the Center for Architecture several summers ago. Students developed their own micro-units in plan, including door and window openings, and translated their plans into three-dimensional models at ½” = 1’-0” scale. Read More

Daria Pizzetta, FAIA, Principal, H3 Hardy Collaboration Architecture, has had a leading role in shaping the evolution of library design nationally, as well as the discourse about the design of major public buildings and arts institutions. Pizzetta’s practice has incorporated a strong emphasis on programmatic needs to develop civic and academic buildings that are right-sized, flexible and adaptable for community use. Her library buildings emphasize the need for the building to be designed “from the inside, out” to accommodate the variety of materials and technology housed within modern library structures, while her performing arts and museum projects consider performance and exhibition needs specific to each institution.

Oculus Book Review: The Arab City: Architecture and Representation

The Arab City: Architecture and Representation, edited by Amale Andraos and Nora Akawi, is comprised of 26 essays discussing not just the state of Arab architecture but the state of architecture in an endlessly fluid political landscape. The essays and commentaries were gathered for the 2014 symposium at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture Planning and Preservation (GSAPP) entitled “Architecture and Representation: The Arab City.” The result is an endlessly handsome volume of poetic dialogue about the region.
