GranitiFiandre S.p.A., in collaboration with the Bank “Banca Popolare dell’Emilia Romagna”, Poltrona Frau, Grottini, Technokolla, Martini Luce, Fantoni, Albini&Fontanot, Comune di Modena, D.A.P.T. and Alma Mater Studiorum Bologna, is pleased to present an event linked to the Recent Works by Richard Meier. Over 30 years of activity, a huge number of buildings to his name, works undergoing completion and projects that from an initial residential theme have progressively expanded onto an increasingly more urban scale of complex systems: from the United States, to Europe and beyond.
This, in brief, is a summary of Architect Richard Meier’s background, tenaciously followed up on a level of cultivated research and steady extension of the values of tradition. That modernist style, brought to realisation within a creative sequence including technique in the intrinsic values of the exploratory tactics of project systems and manipulation of the perceptive and functional system of spaces, on whatever scale. The implementation of this method, stressed through the sharpening of a by now tried and tested system with parameters that were obvious from the very start, has enabled the architect to outline operational sectors, moving thresholds for closely interlinked experiments that bit further ahead each time.
These experiments will be on show from 6th March 2004 at the auditorium “G. Monzani” in Modena, in via Aristotele n° 33. The Auditorium will in fact host a “well thought out” selection from a professional history leading to the latest creations, which will be presented by the designer himself at the inauguration. The Exhibition and catalogue published by Skira have been organised by the Architect Silvio Cassarà, a long-time careful observer of overseas design phenomenology.
Once again GranitiFiandre S.p.A., in collaboration with the most important representatives of international design and together with a chosen circle of partners, is supporting a culture of cutting edge architecture.
REM KOOLHAAS INTERVIEW
ICON architecture + design Magazine
Rem Koolhaas founded the Office for Metropolitan Architecture in 1975 together with Elia and Zoe Zenghelis and Madelon Vriesendorp. Having worked as a journalist and script writer before becoming an architect, Koolhaas graduated from the Architectural Association in London and in 1978 published Delirious New York, a Retroactive Manifesto for Manhattan. In 1995, his book S,M,L,XL summarized the work of OMA and established connections between contemporary society and architecture. At this moment Rem Koolhaas is heading the work of OMA as well as AMO - the conceptual branch of OMA, a think tank focused on social, economic, and technological issues.Rem Koolhaas is a professor at Harvard University where he conducts the Project on the City, a research program investigating changing urban conditions around the world. The projects include a study on China’s Pearl River Delta (published as Great Leap Forward), an analysis of the role of retail and consumption in the contemporary society (The Harvard Guide to Shopping), and studies on Rome, Lagos, Moscow and Beijing.
The work of Rem Koolhaas and OMA has been celebrated as well by several international awards, including the Pritzker Architecture Prize (2000) and the RIBA Gold Medal (2004). In 2005 Rem Koolhaas received the Mies van der Rohe Award for the Netherlands Embassy, Berlin. This award is presented every two years by the European Union and the Fundació Mies van der Rohe (Barcelona) to acknowledge and reward quality architectural production in Europe. The jury singled out OMA’s design of the Netherlands Embassy in Berlin for the extraordinary relationship established with its surroundings. In making their decision to award the Netherlands Embassy, the jury commended the "quality of the urban reflection and intelligence of the concept implemented, especially as regards the unprecedented concept of 'trajectory' and the new potential it brings to this project of great complexity".
