Ennead Designs Sustainable Home for Stanford’s New Knight-Hennessy Scholarship Program
Location: Stanford University
Status: Completed

Stanford University’s campus is synonymous with Spanish Revival architecture: red tile roofs, stucco, and colonnades greet visitors and students at every turn. But the Denning House, a new Enneaddesigned building, plays by different rules. Clad with a sweeping curtain wall and delicate stained wood screens, the building brings a new aesthetic to Stanford, as well as a fresh approach to sustainable design. “Nobody ever said that [we] would have to play by all of the usual Stanford rules,” says Richard Olcott, design partner at the New York–based firm.

Nicole Hone – Hydrophytes

Nicole Hone – Hydrophytes 

Hydrophytes is a series of futuristic aquatic plants created with multi-material 3D printing.  The project explores the design and choreography of movement to bring objects to life through 4D printing.  The film is true to life with no effects added in post-processing. The designs utilise Stratasys PolyJet technology that allows blends of rigid and flexible resins known as digital materials.  Sealed chambers allow the 4D prints to activate independently through pneumatic inflation. The Hydrophytes illustrate a range of multifaceted, variable movements whose life-like qualities are unique to the behaviour of digital materials.

HAEGUE YANG – IN THE CONE OF UNCERTAINTY
THE BASS
November 2, 2019 – April 5, 2020

The Bass presents an exhibition of new and existing works from the past decade by South Korean artist Haegue Yang, including major sculptural works and large-scale installations made of venetian blinds, which are regarded as one of her signature materials. Yang’s work reflects a relentless curiosity about the world, yet simultaneously evokes feelings of displacement and “otherness.” The performativity and immersive nature of her works generate profound feelings of foreignness and alienation on both social and existential levels. Such tensions reflect our current realities and provoke questions about nation-state, diaspora and metaphorical homelessness. The Bass is a particularly resonant site to present Yang‘s work, considering that over fifty percent of the population in Miami-Dade County is born outside of the United States.

Immerse yourself in a series of dreamlike passages and rooms designed by New York-based architects SO-IL and explore yesterday’s visions of the future – as avant-garde speculations are displayed alongside contemporary objects and new commissions.

Disciplined Insurgence: Beyond The Norm in Letters Form Wissam Shawkat
Tashkeel Studio and Gallery, Dubai
January 23 – March 5, 2019

Disciplined Insurgence marks the second solo exhibition at Tashkeel by Wissam Shawkat, the Basra-born, Dubai-based, award-winning artist and designer. His craftsmanship and practice is testament to the innovations being made in Arabic calligraphy and typography in the 21st century. On one hand, it can be interpreted as rebellious and bold, and on the other it feels completely natural to an artist who has fostered a life-long relationship with the letters themselves. “Although my work can be described as a departure from the classic Islamic calligraphy, I have never lost sight of the many years of evolution that has shaped every Arabic letter into its remarkable beauty“.
