AIA NY Cultural Facilities Committee The Cultural Facilities Committee is a forum to explore and exchange ideas and to meet the challenges of planning and designing cultural facilities.

Arthur M. Rosenblatt Memorial Lecture for Excellence in Museum Design In 2006, the AIANY Cultural Facilities Committee developed an annual lecture series to honor the work and memory of their founding Committee chair, Arthur Rosenblatt. Among his many accomplishments, Mr. Rosenblatt was the Vice President for Architecture at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for 19 years during its period of great expansion, the founding Director of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, as well as a highly regarded Museum design consultant. He was an enthusiastic promoter of the architectural profession through his long involvement with the AIA, a generous friend to countless colleagues, and passionate about the role of art in our everyday lives.The Arthur M. Rosenblatt Memorial Lecture is a highlight of Archtober, the AIANY’s annual month-long festival of architecture activities, programs and exhibitions held each October.

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.

*This event is occurring as a live webinar. Registrants will be emailed a link to access the program.*

The Future of Museums Dialogue Series
The world is rapidly changing around us, and it is questionable if the old frameworks for the development of programs and space programs for museums will still be relevant tomorrow. What would museums for the 21st century become if we were to we take this unprecedented time to explore new missions, visions, and (space) programs for existing and new institutions? Join us for an online series of live conversations as museum expert David van der Leer, Principal of DVDL DD, speaks with museum professionals from around the US and beyond.

In this week’s installment, Van der Leer will be joined in conversation by Alexandra Cunningham Cameron, curator of contemporary design and Hintz Secretarial Scholar at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. Cooper Hewitt is the only museum in the United States devoted exclusively to historical and contemporary design, and is the steward of one of the most diverse and comprehensive design collections in existence—more than 210,000 design objects spanning 30 centuries. From ancient textiles and works on paper to icons of modern design and cutting-edge technologies, Cooper Hewitt’s collection serves as inspiration for creative work of all kinds and tells the story of design’s paramount importance in improving our world.

Speakers:

Magazzino Italian Art

Magazzino Italian Art

Magazzino Italian Art will be the first museum in the United States to adopt new social distancing technology, developed by Italian and American companies. The devices will bring ease to the visitor experience at Magazzino by removing the guesswork out of social distancing with the help of radio waves that measures and promotes safe distances between visitors.

When the tags—and the people wearing them—are closer than the recommended safe distance, the tags will vibrate and flash a red LED light to alert the user and those around them that they have breached a minimum safe distance.

The video shows this new technology in action right here at Magazzino Italian Art.

Welcome All: Designing Inclusivity into Cultural Buildings

What can we, as planners and designers, do to ensure the safety and inclusion of visitors to and staff of our cultural buildings now, in the short-term, and in the future? Efforts must intensify to amplify voices within our richly varied society that have been suppressed and marginalized by institutional and systemic racism. How can we use our design talents to create environments that make it easier for BIPOC voices to be heard?
