Materials and Applications

Through Spring 2015

You can’t tell at first glance, but Silver Lake gallery Materials & Applications is measuring the ground shaking beneath your feet. Their newest installation, Domus, by D.V. Rogers, detects worldwide seismic activity measured by the US Geological Survey and reveals it with a 7-foot-tall, multi-colored LED “light chandelier” display and with pulsing sounds. All is encased inside a 20-foot-tall, six-sided “hexayurt” made with simple exterior insulation panels and filament tape. The installation will be up until next Spring.

In 1948, Paul Rudolph was residing at the American Academy in Rome. He had traveled there to study classical architecture, but was instead spending his days designing modern houses for Sarasota, Florida. In fact, Sarasota, according to Timothy Rohan who has recently published a monograph on Rudolph, made a huge impression on the architect and defined his work for the rest of his career. He had moved there to apprentice and work for the local architect Ralph Twitchell, who in the 1940s helped create a style of modern house that eventually became known as the Sarasota school.

Beyond the Supersquare: Art and Architecture in Latin America After Modernism at the Bronx Museum is the most exciting and challenging architecture and urbanism exhibit in New York at the moment. The focus of the exhibit is the influence modern architecture and architectural thought has had on contemporary art in the Caribbean and Latin America. But while it features the work of artists and not primarily architects, all the works selected by Bronx Museum Executive Director Holly Block and Independent Curator María Inés Rodriguez were chosen for their insights into architecture and the immediate challenges of the region’s exploding urbanism.
