SU’s School of Architecture mounts’houses+housing1′ exhibitionJanuary 26, 2005Jaime Winne Alvarez firstname.lastname@example.org
Syracuse University’s School of Architecture will present “houses+housing1” an exhibition dedicated to dwellings of varied sizes and types featuring recent projects from faculty and visiting critics, Jan. 27-Feb. 17.
The exhibition will be on display in the School of Architecture gallery, located in Room 103 of Slocum Hall, Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. A free, public closing night reception will take place in the gallery on Feb. 17 at 6:30 p.m.
“houses+housing1” is the first installation in a series of exhibitions in which faculty members and visiting critics will display different approaches and applications of single and multiple living units in contemporary practice. It will feature the work of SU Professors Nicole Roberston, Richard Rosa and Greg Stroh; and Fall 2004 visiting critics Brian McGrath, Alessandro Cimini and Ignacio Lamar.
Robertson’s project, “In The Tube,” explores the use of performative geometry and digital fabrication to creatively respond to the unique conditions of a narrow site – a private residence on the New Jersey shore. Rosa examines the conceptual elasticity of domestic typological models in a series of house projects that combine hyper-site specificity, spatial extension and an evolving notion of contemporary program. Stroh, with Stauffer Architects, collaborated on single-family house additions in Cleveland, Ohio. Visiting critic McGrath, with Lamar and Cimini of AQ Cursor Architects, collaborated on two housing proposals in Monterey, Calif.
“The work in our gallery shows the variety of approaches to conceiving of the home,” says Mark Robbins, dean of the School of Architecture. “This diversity reflects the plural vision of our faculty and current architectural practice.”
