This month's selection of current and upcoming exhibitions showcases a presentation of architecture’s potential to identify and solve the urgent issues of our time, Australia’s only professional certified LEGO sculptor and a recollection of what’s happened in Japan since the 2011 earthquake.There’s also immersive sculpture by MIT’s Skylar Tibbits at The Storefront and a look at hospital design in Helsinki.
Articles are the fun house and bric-a-brac store of arcspace. This is where we try out new formats and store everything that does not fit into the existing menu structure.
The headlining stories this month include the winner of the 2015 RIBA Stirling Prize and the design of George Lucas’ new museum in Chicago. Also, the curators for the British Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale are announced, an open competition for a new Nanotechnology Center and the winners of the London Housing Crisis competition.
Where is architecture going in the future? No matter what, the answer seems to involve a computer and some serious computer skills. AA Rome Visiting School is setting up a 10-day architectural workshop under the title ‘Form as (Dynamic) Unknown’ focusing on interactive + smart architecture. The programme sounds really promising.
