McAllen Performing Arts Center Plans Finalized HD
Now that the McAllen City Commission has approved the design on a new performing arts center, architects are preparing for the construction phase of the project. "Well, the Mayor and the City Commission are very excited about this project. Right now the architects and the engineers are looking at the building, making the final plans, getting the site lines set up like they need to be and getting ready for construction and they'll put the project out for bids roughly in about 7 months. And it should take between 20 and 24 months to build," said District 5 City Commissioner John J. Ingram. Commissioners believe the new property, worth over 30 million dollars, will make a strong statement in McAllen with its very progressive architecture. It will be located on the southeast side of the McAllen Convention Center campus. "It's going to be a beautiful building, about 90 feet tall. You're going to see it from the freeway. The construction and the architecture is just beautiful. And, I think it's going to be something that when people enter McAllen, they're going to know right away that they're in McAllen," added Commissioner Ingram. The Mayor and the city commissioners offered input on the design of the building in series of workshops. "It has an additional pond out there with a statue of a vaquero, very, very attractive, an area for valet parking that's separated from the general traffic flow of coming and dropping off people at the auditorium. It has quite a bit of glass, it has a nice view of the lake that is in front of the convention center, a lot of bring colors in it. It will have a balcony and a large lobby. It's going to be a wonderful addition to this campus out here," said District 1 City Commissioner Scott C. Crane. Commissioners site a number of reasons why constructing this new facility is important for McAllen and for the region. "Well this adds to the quality of life in McAllen. We have a very old theatre, outdated. This is going to bring all the latest technology in. And really at the base of all of this is two things. It's adding to the quality of life for those of us who live here and for our children that perform in the ballets or the mariachi bands or whatever it is that they perform on stage but secondly and equally important is you want to build a community that is attractive to other companies that are potentially looking to relocate to the border region. So, we've got to compete with all the other communities up and down the border," added Commissioner Crane. Before awarding a bid for construction, commissioners will have to finalize a plan to finance this project. The sell of the old Civic Center property and selling naming rights to the performing arts centers have been discussed as options, so far.

Hidden Voices, Chapter 1 Hidden Voices: Home is Not One Story A 2010 Community Art Project: Home Is... Home Is... a community-based project highlighting stories from different homeless populations in the area. Materials created through workshops and interviews will establish the basis a variety of projects (exhibition, performance, lesson plans, and brochure). Stories will be artistically interpreted by undergraduate and graduate students from the Advanced Media Lab at NC State University, led by artists/filmmakers McArthur Freeman and Patrick FitzGerald, professors of Art & Design at NC State University, College of Design in cooperation with Hidden Voices. These media interpretations could take a variety of forms from animation to layered imagery. Eight to ten 1-2 minute media segments will be produced and tied together thematically within the overall production. The production shown publicly in a variety of ways, possibly through photo cell technology that transforms a store window into a screen, by projecting onto exterior wall surfaces, and/or by incorporating the program into an existing film festival or screen.

Architecture Short Course: How to Develop a Design Concept
All architecture begins with a concept. If you’re struggling to find one, curious about what one is, or wondering how architects begin their projects; this short course will walk you through the process I use and some of the techniques I rely on to develop architectural concepts all illustrated with one of my residential projects. Design is a dialogue, and the concept ensures you have something to talk about. In this video I discuss the precise steps I take when beginning each project and how those steps lead me to an architectural concept. Before we can develop the concept, we have to first understand the practical constraints. My design process begins only after gathering and assessing all the given parameters for a project. Now, this primarily consists of three types of information. There’s information derived from the site - things like: local climate, the prevailing winds, the solar aspect, vegetation, neighboring structures, the site’s history, and any unique liabilities or opportunities. The site of course also comes along with legal frameworks for development, which describe where and what we can and can’t build. The second type of information we’ll gather is from the client. Every client has a set of cultural beliefs and preconceptions, preferences and agendas. Of course, we’ll want to determine their budget, and understand the personality traits and organizational politics which might also shape the design. The client and the building type together determine what architects call, “the program” which is essentially a detailed accounting of all the spaces the building will contain. And the third type of information I gather is related to the building typology – is it a museum, a home…or a school for example? To learn about a building typology we often conduct an analysis of notable or relevant historical precedents. We want to know the essential problems these types of structures grapple with. Understanding the history of the archetype allows us to approach a problem from a fresh perspective. All of this is necessary information that we collect for every project. This inventory can also serve as the progenitor for the design concept – our seed idea. And, rather than shunting creativity, these constraints often incite the creative process. Concept Inspirations Discussed: - Site - Client - Narrative - Materials - Structural - Mainifestos - Formal As with a good film, the setting, the characters, the cinematography, and the plot all conspire to make it what it is. It’s the experience you’ll recall rather than the concept per se. Sure, the concept sets the film in motion and it’s the starting point for all that follows. But this concept – the one or two-line description – can’t possible capture the richness and depth of the finished film…or in our case the architecture. Yet without it, the work is unfulfilling and so it should be clear that the concept is necessary for all our work as architects. // GEAR I USE // DSLR CAMERA: * Canon 70D: http://amzn.to/29klz7k LENSES: * Canon 24mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29l7ac5 * Canon 40mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29x2QcI AUDIO: * Rode VideoMic Pro (hotshoe mtd.): http://amzn.to/29qlNM3 * ATR-2100 USB (dynamic mic): http://amzn.to/2dFDaKp ARCHITECTURE GEAR: * Prismacolor Markers: http://thirtybyforty.com/markers * Timelapse Camera: http://thirtybyforty.com/brinno * AutoCAD LT: http://amzn.to/2dxjMDH * SketchUp PRO: http://amzn.to/2cRcojz * HP T120 Plotter: http://amzn.to/2dBGf1O * Adobe CC Photography (Photoshop/Lightroom) Plan: http://amzn.to/2dhq5ap STARTUP TOOLKIT: * Architect + Entrepreneur Startup Toolkit: http://thirtybyforty.com/SPL -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "100K (Silver Play Button) + A Thank You" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tkK5qls78E -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Artist builds his Savannah studio with shipping containers
Architect, artist, designer Julio Garcia had been designing plans for shipping container homes for a decade before he found the perfect place to build one: on a long, narrow stretch of his property in Savannah, Georgia. “I’m a big believer we should be adapting to the environment… I remember walking out and looking at the yard and thinking oh my god the land is calling for this linear design.” He picked up two 40 foot shipping containers from the Port of Savannah and, thanks to much advance planning, he was able to install them without removing one tree from his property. He offset the two boxes, cut out the interior container walls and added I-beams, a shed roof and clerestory windows in the center to provide plenty of daylighting. “There’s nothing worse than feeling like you’re inside a container so in the design we had to address that. I’ve been in a couple of projects and they don’t function very well and you’re like, ‘Oh, I still feel like I’m in a metal box’.” Garcia believes containers can make for affordable homes: “you could put up a structure like this for about 50K”, but much of the interior was salvaged from other job sites (i.e. the drywall and the kitchen). His Price Street Projects creates plans that are “almost do-it-yourself plans” for shipping container homes and he has installed commercial container spaces, but he’s a big believer that the site should determine the design. http://pricestreetprojects.com/ Original story: https://faircompanies.com/videos/artist-builds-his-savannah-studio-with-shipping-containers

Harvard CGBC Lecture Series:  Gordon Gill
"Discovering Form Through Performance: From Master Planning to the Tallest Building in the World" April 20, 2017 Gordon Gill is one of the world’s preeminent exponents of performance-based architecture. His work, which ranges from the world’s largest buildings to sustainable communities, is driven by his philosophy that there is a purposeful relationship between formal design and performance; and that there is a language of performance, which is the basis of his practice: Form Follows Performance. A founding partner of award-winning Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, Gordon’s work includes the design of the world’s first net zero-energy skyscraper, the Pearl River Tower (designed at SOM Chicago), the world’s first large-scale positive energy building, Masdar Headquarters, the world’s tallest tower, Kingdom Tower in Jeddah Saudi Arabia and most recently the design of Astana Expo 2017 and its sustainable legacy community for Astana, Kazakhstan. These landmark projects pursue energy independence by harnessing the power of natural forces on site and striking a balance with their environmental contexts. Gordon’s designs also include performing arts centers, museums, strategic carbon planning and urban master plans across the globe. His work has been published and exhibited widely in the U.S. and internationally and his designs have repeatedly been recognized by the American Institute of Architects. In 2009 he was selected as Chicago’s Best Emerging Architect by the Chicago Reader and in 2013 Gordon was elected to The College of Fellows at the American Institute of Architects. Prior to founding AS+GG in 2006, Gordon was an Associate Partner at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and a Director of Design for VOA Associates. The Harvard Center for Green Buildings and Cities aims to transform the building industry through a commitment to design-centric strategy that directly links research outcomes to the development of new processes, systems, and products. http://www.harvardcgbc.org

Lee Gobble sculpture project: Mark Shafer on the foundation tiles artwork
Video produced by Werner Elmker Audio-Visual Studio • elmker.com Fairfield Arts Association plans bronze sculpture of Lee Gobble for Fairfield The Fairfield Art Association will be celebrating its 50th anniversary next year - and what better way to mark the milestone than with a new life size bronze sculpture for our community. "We are excited to announce that Christopher Bennett, the same artist we brought to town in the late 1970s to create "William Coop & Friend" for the Fairfield square, and in 1986 "Leapfrog" for the Carnegie Building lawn, has been commissioned to do another bronze figure sculpture that will placed in front of the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center. The project will involve another native artist, Ken Rowe in modeling parts of the figure, and collaboration with Mark Shafer on historical details & design, along with Harri Aalto in tile creation." The FAA board sets aside money each year in a public art fund. That money was directed to building the FACC for nearly ten years, with the purpose of having a new home for the FAA. Since then the board has been saving for a new public art piece. "Lee T. Gobble, Mr. Fairfield" is our new commissioned sculpture and will grace the front lawn of the FACC and forever glance at the Courthouse Steeple he succeeded in replacing. Most everyone in town knew Lee, who passed away at 100 years old in April of this year. There are countless stories about Lee; his family's clothier establishment since 1853, his unique style and quirkiness, his generosity, relationship with Parson College and love of Fairfield. If all goes according to plan, fundraising included, the sculpture could be completed and installed by fall 2016. Raising funds will include securing a public art grant, donations, memorials, fundraising events, and the money already put aside by the FAA for public art. The FAA has recently received a $500 grant for this project from the Fairfield Cultural Alliance. The FAA will need to raise $36,500, and invites donations from anyone that appreciates art, the memory of Lee Gobble, or agrees with the recent "Community Assessment & Recommendations" stating "we would encourage…. more public art throughout the community… especially downtown. We could imagine Fairfield being known for its public art installations in years to come."

Panel: How a Water Plan Will Change Connecticut's Future
Panel: How a Water Plan Will Change Connecticut's Future Monday, November 16, 2015 at 6 pm Wien Theatre, Quick Center for the Arts The significance of water as a campus-wide initiative is encapsulated in the following quote by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in which she comments: “In the United States, water represents one of the great diplomatic and development opportunities of our time. It’s not every day you find an issue where effective diplomacy and development will allow you to save millions of lives, feed the hungry, empower women, advance our national security interests, protect the environment, and demonstrate to billions of people that the United States cares, cares about you and your welfare. Water is that issue.” Water covers over 70% of the Earth’s surface and has become a hot topic issue for people around the world. Students, faculty, staff, and the community at Fairfield University will have the opportunity to become active participants engaging with each other to learn more about these issues and consider solutions for this University-wide focus running from 2014-2016. Moderator: George Logan, Director of Environmental Management & Government Relations, Aquarion Water Company. Panelists: Mike Sullivan, Deputy Commissioner for Environmental Quality at the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Jack Betkoski III, Vice Chairman of Connecticut’s Public Utilities Regulatory Authority Lori Mathieu, Public Health Section Chief of the Department of Public Health Maureen Westbrook, Vice President of Customer and Regulatory Affairs at Connecticut Water Co.

Segregated School’s History on Exhibit
Segregated School’s History on Exhibit The Franklin Street School in Cape May is now the focus of an exhibit entitled, "Franklin Street School: From Segregation to Unification." The exhibit is presented by the Center for Community Arts in association with the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities. Photographs, artifacts and recorded oral and video histories make up the exhibit which chronicles the history of the school. It also highlights African-American life and history in Cape May and the surrounding region, showing the initial efforts to preserve and rehabilitate the building and plans for the school's expansion and completion. The school building itself has seen about $700,000 in restoration and preservation work, according to CCA Executive Director David Mackenzie, since the organization took it over in 2002. CCA is working with the City of Cape May on further funding to rehabilitate the school to house a community cultural center and other activities still under discussion. Once decisions are made, plans established and funding secured, Mackenzie said there will be at least a nine-month construction period. The exhibit is free and open to the public through April 15 at the Carroll Gallery of the Carriage House, on the grounds of the Emlen Physick Estate. www.capemaycountyherald.com

How Master Planning for K-12 Schools Creates Value
We take you behind the scenes of LPA's master planning process with one of LPA's longest clients, Dr. David Verdugo and Michael Bishop of Paramount Unified School District. LPA's integrated K-12 schools design team worked closely with district staff, the Paramount community and McCarthy Builders to transform the outdated Paramount High School campus into a functional, supportive 21st century learning environment. School facilities play a big role in the educational development of students. Planning an entire school district and campus around programming, budget and site constraints is no easy task. LPA Principal Jim Kisel explains the four pillars of LPA's K-12 facility master planning: engagement, assessment, capability and the mission. Together with the school district, the school's students, parents and community are engaged to survey their priorities for the legacy of the renovation. The site is assessed for strengths and opportunities for improvement. Strategies and partnerships are built to identify budgetary constraints and to seek opportunities for reducing operational costs. Lastly, the core of each decision is rooted in the collective mission and vision for the school and for the students.

Teaching art or teaching to think like an artist? | Cindy Foley | TEDxColumbus
What is the purpose and value of Art education in the 21st Century? Foley makes the case the Art’s critical value is to develop learners that think like Artists which means learners who are creative, curious, that seek questions, develop ideas, and play. For that to happen society will need to stop the pervasive, problematic and cliché messaging that implies that creativity is somehow defined as artistic skill. This shift in perception will give educators the courage to teach for creativity, by focusing on three critical habits that artist employ, 1. Comfort with Ambiguity, 2. Idea Generation, and 3. Transdisciplinary Research. This change can make way for Center’s for Creativity in our schools and museums where ideas are king and curiosity reigns. Cindy Meyers Foley is the Executive Assistant Director and Director of Learning and Experience at the Columbus Museum of Art. Foley worked to reimagine the CMA as a 21st century institution that is transformative, active, and participatory. An institution that impacts the health and growth of the community by cultivating, celebrating and championing creativity. Foley envisioned and led the charge to open the 18,000 sq. ft. Center for Creativity in 2011. In 2013, the museum received the National Medal for Museums in recognition of this work. Foley guest edited and wrote chapters for Intentionality and the Twenty-First-Century Museum, for the summer 2014 Journal of Museum Education. In 2012, Foley received the Greater Columbus Arts Council Community Arts Partnership award for Arts Educator. She was a keynote speaker for the OAEA (Ohio Art Education Association) 2012 Conference. She is on the Faculty of Harvard University’s Future of Learning Summer Institute. Foley is a graduate of the University of Kentucky and The Ohio State University. Prior to joining the Museum, she was with the Institute of Contemporary Art at the Maine College of Art, the Portland Museum of Art, and the Wexner Center for the Arts. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

President views Center for the Arts progress
To make a Pledge please visit: http://www.pittstate.edu/office/development/projects/fpac.dot Passersby have watched with fascination recently as workers have installed massive pre-cast concrete walls, causing Pittsburg State University's new Center for the Arts to rapidly rise out of the ground. No one has watched with more interest than PSU President Steve Scott. On Tuesday, Crossland Construction Co. officials gave the president a brief tour so he could see the progress and learn more about the details of the intricate construction. "It is extremely exciting and energizing to see the progress," Scott said. "As I walked through the site, I couldn't help but think of all of the donors who have made this possible." Noting that the construction has piqued the interest of the community and of visitors to campus, the president said it sends a clear message. "This is a campus with momentum," Scott said. "When people see this, they see a university that has defined itself and has a clear mission." As machines growled and beeped and scores of workers focused on their individual tasks, Construction Superintendent Jeff Machado, who is a PSU alumnus, led the president through the site. Machado pointed out massive pre-cast concrete panels, which rest on the building's 236 foundational piers. Those piers, he said, go down more than 30 feet below grade. By the time the job is finished, Machado said, the building will include nearly 80,000 square feet of pre-cast concrete panels and will rise 76 feet. Machado took Scott to the stage area of the theater where he could look over work far below in the orchestra pit and see the first outlines of the seating. "For me, this is a great experience," Machado said, "because I went to school here." He said this spring's weather had been a challenge, but work remains on schedule with completion set for the fall of 2014. "We have a big span to put in today," Machado said. "And for the next four weeks, we'll be doing pre-cast work for the proscenium and stage. It's good to start getting out of the ground." Among those helping build the Arts Center are eight PSU student interns. One of those, James Steeby, a senior construction engineering major from Parsons, said it was exciting to be working on a major project on campus and I t's something he expects to be able to point to with pride for many years to come. "It feels good to be part of it," Steeby said. "I know it will always be there in the future and my kids will benefit." The Center for the Arts is a dream that has been decades in the making, as the university has not had an on-campus venue of this type since Carney Hall closed in 1978. The $33-million facility will include two performance halls, a grand entrance lobby appropriate for receptions and other gatherings, an art gallery, a workspace for an artist-in-residence, a private reception room, a multi-use rehearsal space for large musical groups, and various technical and support spaces. Many people have given generously to make the Center for the Arts a reality, Scott said. That includes an anonymous lead gift of $10 million and later, a $5-million gift from the Walton Family Charitable Support Foundation, through the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation, in honor of PSU graduate and former Walmart president and CEO, H. Lee Scott. "We're continuing to raise money for this," President Scott said after the tour. "Every gift is important and regardless of the size of the gift, we want people to feel ownership in this building."

Hyperrhiz: Kits, Plans, and Schematics. An Exhibition of Electronic Art
As the maker movement has infiltrated the academy, with delightful results, we find ourselves confronted with physical and media objects that can often be exhibited but not “published” in a permanent forum. The newest issue of Hyperrhiz will publish executable culture of all sorts: blueprints, plans, “kits for culture,” 3d-printable files, recipes, and detailed documentation of performances, exhibits, happenings. This exhibition hosted by the Digital Studies Center will feature the physical objects and installations associated with this issue of Hyperrhiz. Join us October 15, 4pm-6pm in the ModLab (Fine Arts, Room 215) for the opening of an art exhibition entitled “Kits, Plans, and Schematics.” The exhibition will also serve as the launch of the Fall 2015 issue of the online journal Hyperrhiz. http://hyperrhiz.io/ https://digitalstudies.camden.rutgers.edu/ Video made by Robert A.

Thayer Barn - Duvall - Most Endangered Properties 2014
Built during the Depression of the 1930's from a Sears & Roebuck barn catalogue and featuring a popular gothic style roof, the Thayer Barn is one of the last remaining dairy barns standing within the City of Duvall in the Snoqualmie River Valley. Situated immediately adjacent to State Route 203, the barn serves as a reference point for the community's agricultural heritage. Yet, the barn has not been actively used for years, and sits dilapidated along the roadside. Efforts to preserve the barn are not new. A decade ago, notice went out that the property would be sold for redevelopment. Local advocates from the Duvall Foundation for the Arts rallied to save the barn, raising a sizeable portion of funds needed to realize the vision of converting the barn to a community arts center. But the deal fell through, and the barn continued to sit, untended. Earlier this year, the property did indeed sell and plans for a housing development are moving forward. Thankfully, the project sponsors have shown a willingness to incorporate the barn into the new development, provided advocates can come up with the needed funds. Local support is present, and advocates from the DFA and The Thayer Barn Project are working on plans to rehabilitate the barn for a community purpose. In the meantime, however, the biggest threat is time. Once permitting for the new housing project is complete, it will go forward with or without the barn. And given the barn's level of deterioration, the structure is unlikely to survive another rainy winter season.
