The Future of Cultural Centers: Gabriel Kogan on SESC Pompéia - 04.27.2021 - Center for Architecture

The Future of Cultural Centers: Gabriel Kogan on SESC Pompéia - ESC Pompéia is a remarkable adaptive reuse project by one of Modernism’s best-known female architects, Lina Bo Bardi.

If you missed this program in April, here is the replay.

In this installment, Van der Leer was joined in conversation by architect, critic, and professor Gabriel Kogan, who will discuss São Paulo’s SESC Pompéia.
Originally a drum factory, Bo Bardi transformed the structure in 1982 into a highly successful, multi-purpose building by adding two concrete towers connected by diagonal walkways. She stripped the factory back to its original concrete and brick to show the structural tectonics while also allowing the program to drive the design in a socially utopic vision that reflects Modernism’s highest ideals. The building continues to thrive to this day, fascinating lovers of Modern architecture around the world.

Speakers:
Gabriel Kogan, Architect, critic, and professor (São Paulo, Brazil)

The Future of Cultural Centers Dialogue Series (_)

The Future of Cultural Centers: Pieternel Thijssen, LocHal Library
Tuesday, 5/11, 12pm - 1pm
THIS IS A FREE EVENT.

As the world rapidly changes around us, old frameworks for the development of cultural centers look less and less relevant. Continuing the success of the 2020 “Future of Cultural Centers” dialogue series, this year AIA New York will look at cultural institutions that take a mixed-use approach to programming and space and a more holistic view of the human experience. We will touch on opportunities and challenges around these hybrid organizations, questioning what would happen if we were to take this unprecedented time to explore new missions, visions, and models to help address existing institutional deficits. What will 21st-century arts and community spaces be like? Join us for this Spring line-up of conversations as cultural forecaster and museum expert David van der Leer, Principal of DVDL, speaks with professionals from around the US and beyond.

In this week’s installment, Van der Leer will be joined in conversation by Pieternel Thijssen, Manager of Social Programming for Lochal. LocHal is a world-class urban living room designed by Amsterdam-based studio Civic Architects. Occupying a former glass and steel locomotive shed of the Dutch National Railways in Tilburg, the Netherlands, LocHal houses the Central Brabant Province Library, the nonprofit arts organization Kunstloc Brabant, a co-working startup called Seats2Meet, Brabant C, a regional investment fund for culture and the creative industry, a number of labs, and more. LocHal is a space for both young and old to read, learn, study, meet, gather, and learn new skills. It is a place for testing, creating, exhibiting, and presenting the latest innovations.

Speakers:
Pieternel Thijssen, Manager of Social Programming, LocHal Public Library of Midden-Brabant (Tilburg, Netherlands)
David van der Leer, Principal, DVDL

Pieternel Thijssen is the Manager of Social Programming for the Public Library of Midden-Brabant, the Netherlands. The library of Midden-Brabant plays an essential role in connecting people to their local community and in supporting and facilitating people in their personal growth. The LocHal Library, the city library of Tilburg, has made a huge step toward fulfilling the role of the social library. Thijssen was project manager for the LocHal and Manager of Innovation. She is both a librarian with a master’s degree in business information and a visionary when it comes to public libraries and the added value they should have in society.

Through exhibitions, collections, live programming, digital broadcast, and publishing, Wellcome Collection creates opportunities for people to explore connections between science, medicine, life, and art. The venue offers contemporary and historic exhibitions and collections, the Wellcome Library, an events space (The Studio), a research area (The Hub), a café, a reading room, a bookshop, and conference facilities. The Wellcome Collection is part of the Wellcome Trust. The space bridges the gap between a museum, a world-class Library, a meeting place, and a research space where academics, artists, and other creative minds can collaborate on interdisciplinary projects exploring medicine, health, and well-being.

This new venue will mark a departure from the institution’s customary residential presentation. Join us for a lively, illuminating discussion about the challenges of displaying and installing an international, world-class collection in a temporary facility.

Facing Challenges Ahead: How Will Cultural Facilities Survive?

Moderator:
Joseph Auld, Project Executive, Landair Inc. Project Managers and Owner’s Reps
Panelists:
Candace Jackson, Principal, CJAM Consulting, LLC
Pamela Lopez, Director of Programming and Audiences, GAM Cultural Center, Santiago, Chile
Ariel Fausto, Principal, H3

This event is the third in a series of panels exploring inclusion and accessibility of our cultural resources. Seven months into the pandemic, many cultural institutions remain closed, while some have opened under difficult limitations. How will cultural institutions adapt if the COVID-19 pandemic shows no signs of abating, vaccine production is elayed, and hear immunity is not achieved? How will they respond to continued unemployment and layoffs, particularly for working class people, and for the rise in homelessness? What is the future of museums as the economy continues to weaken and real estate vacancies continue to skyrocket, and as protestors rightfully demand the end of systemic racism? What then?

As experts in or users of the built environment, what can we do to preserve and cultivate arts and culture with equity and inclusion as priorities? What type of support is needed if the current status of the arts and the cultural community worsens? Our esteemed panel will share their experiences, discuss how they have mandated diversity at their institutions, and explore what changes they would need to see if our current situation indeed takes a turn for the worst. We will examine examples of how, in the past, the built environment has nurtured and cultivated the arts and the artist, and improved the surrounding community.

Archtober Turns 10 With Hybrid In-Person/Virtual Festival

Organized by the Center for Architecture in collaboration with 70 partners and sponsors, the 2020 installment of the festival gathers events, exhibitions, resources, and activities that highlight the importance of architecture and design. As Archtober’s partners respond to the ever-changing landscape of COVID-19 New York City, they have deftly adapted their programming to continue to provide cultural and educational enrichment while ensuring the health and safety of all. As such, this year’s festival will feature online-only talks and tours, DIY-style resources and self-led activities, and safe and socially distanced in-person programs.

Art Shelters: New Single-Collection Museums - Calendar - AIA New York / Center for Architecture

Coming up this Thursday.
Art Shelters: New Single-Collection Museums
In the last 10 years, new private museums with a single collection of modern and contemporary art have proliferated around the world. Within the US alone this unique building type includes The Broad in Los Angeles, California; Glenstone Museum in Potomac, Maryland; and the Rubell Museum in Miami, Florida, among several others.
Designed specifically to shelter artworks assembled by a couple or a single collector with a keen eye and personal vision, these privately-funded cultural destinations present distinct planning and managing challenges. While architectural precedents, such as the Barnes, the Frick, and the Getty Villa, can be easily found, what has irrevocably changed is the scale of the art, its conservation needs, and the accompanying scholarship that makes these modern collections different from previous ones.
Three distinguished panelists share their expertise and insights on these and other art shelters today:
Annabelle Selldorf of Selldorf Architects
Vittorio Calabrese of Magazzino Italian Art
Amy Kaufman of AK Cultural Planning
Moderated by architect Warren James of Art Omi.
