  • LEBBEUS WOODS

    Experimental Architecture

    My first encounter with Lebbeus Woods was in 2004 when the confusion of 9/11 was still pervasive. His book Radical Reconstructions (1997), fell open into my hands. It was staggering. These prescient constructions revealed something that hadn’t yet happened when the book was published.

  • Helen Saunders: Modernist Rebel

    Sydney Design Week 2022, a seven-day program of exhibitions, talks, film screenings and workshops will run across the city’s design hubs from 15-22 September 2022.

  • NICOLA FORMICHETTI

    From the faculty of misfits

    Nicola Formichetti never met Andy Warhol—their lifespans overlapped by ten years—but refers to the American artist as his “dream teacher”. Their post-mortem union transpired when Formichetti launched the Welcome to Diesel World exhibition in Melbourne in March of 2016, where Warhol’s high-gloss albeit chilled paintings of cultural icons were hanging in a major gallery. The pair’s parallels are simple: children of working class parents whose imaginations fought to keep up with the prodigious rate of artistic output.

  • PAUL YORE: WORD MADE FLESH

    September 23 – November 20, 2022

    Paul Yore: WORD MADE FLESH is an extensive survey exhibition encompassing the full scope of the artist’s work, and includes a major new room-scaled installation developed especially for the exhibition.

Inspired by the colours of the natural world, the series is the artist’s response to the pressures of climate change and human survival on a warming planet, within the confines of the digital age. 

  • THE BRION TOMB

    A garden for the dead

    We will never know precisely how the architect managed to persuade Onorina to mitigate the scale of the memorial and reserve most of the site as open space. Despite being one of most influential architects of his day, Scarpa spoke little of his work and left few records to posterity. In any case, rather than occupy the space with an imposing monument, Scarpa designed the memorial as a tranquil landscape and a place of collective contemplation.

WHAT TO COLLECT

  • M5 DAYBED

    By Francesco Balzano

He seeks to uncover emotional resonance in the dialogue between shape and material and reveal the poetry in the relationship between scale, light and space. Signed, numbered and limited to an edition of 12, this daybed has been realised in Carnico black marble, Patricia green marble and felt.

  • T5 Chair

    By Francesco Balzano

    Guided by the principal that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication, Balzano's work combines noble materials, purity of lines, and hyper-detailed architectural references with everyday functionality. Signed, numbered and limited to an edition of 12, this piece has been realised in grand antique marble (or white onyx) and measures approximately 84cm (h) x 123cm (l) x 76cm (d).

  • Aeras Nero F115 Coffee Table

    By Raphael Crespin

This piece is limited to an edition of 8 + 2AP and has been realised in portor marble with matte wax finish.

WHAT TO READ

  • ALBERTO BURRI

    Materials of reconstruction

    Known for ‘painting without paint’, Burri would tear, stitch, burn and batter his creations into submission. In the words of the Italian critic, Emilio Vila, Burri’s works were “nourished by matter that conserves only a tragic reminiscence of painting, almost as if it were asphyxiated; a material that is devitalised, impoverished, rotted, consumed and already wasted away”.

  • PETER MARINO

    The dream weaver

    Marino—let’s call a spade a spade and anoint him with the mantle of ‘starchitect’—is a man obsessed with style. For almost fifty years this striking character has applied architectural nous to a dazzling array of commissions, including private homes for the superannuated, grand, conceptual interiors, and all manner of radical side projects.

  • SANCAKLAR MOSQUE

    Embedding cultural memory in contemporary architecture

    When the head of the philanthropic Sancaklar Foundation, Suat Sancak, first approached Emre Arolat with a request to design a new mosque for 500 worshippers, the architect turned him down. “I told him I’m not that kind of architect,” he remembers.

WHAT TO EXPERIENCE

    Just outside of Brussels in the heart of Rhode-Saint-Genèse, among the quaint European houses and large manicured gardens, is where artist Johan Van Mullem is creating artworks of an otherworldly nature.
