e-flux: an international visual art network

"Established in January 1999 in New York, e–flux is an international network which reaches more than 90,000 visual art professionals on a daily basis through its website, e–mail list and special projects. Its news digest – e–flux announcements – distributes information on some of the world's most important contemporary art exhibitions, publications and symposia.

The daily digest is put together in cooperation with nearly two thousand leading international museums, art centers, foundations, galleries, biennials and art journals. Our focused and selective approach to the information we choose to distribute has been rewarded by an exceptionally high degree of attention and responsiveness from our readers."

Guggenheim Forum: Between the Over- and Underdesigned

"Guggenheim Forum is new series of moderated online discussions catalyzing intelligent conversation on the arts, architecture, and design. Several times each year, experts from a variety of fields inquire into and debate topics related to the museum's exhibition program.

Each forum unfolds over the course of two weeks. During that period, visitors to are encouraged to write in comments. Select responses will be posted for consideration by the panelists and to contribute to the overall dialogue. One or more live chat sessions take place during each forum, allowing visitors to communicate directly with one of our experts in a lively, immediate approach to the subject at hand.
The inaugural Guggenheim Forum, titled Between the Over– and Underdesigned, addresses the subject of how design can enhance or detract from everyday life. Frank Lloyd Wright believed in making his buildings harmonious and integrated with their environment. How might architects, designers, urban planners, and the rest of us make such an attempt today, particularly in the planet's burgeoning cities? Our experts will touch on a variety of questions: What is a well–designed space? How do we measure its value–economically, sociologically, emotionally, or in other ways? To what extent should the person who uses a space be involved in helping design it, or in creating his or her own space? What can we learn from different design solutions throughout history and across cultures?"
(The Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation)

[Guggenheim's forum titled 'Over– and Underdesigned' runs between the June 22 through July 2]

Building Information Modelling

The building industry "is made up of many relatively small businesses that come together on a contract basis for a single project," [Kristine] Fallon [of Kristine Fallon Associates, Inc.] said. "It's all based on ad–hoc partnerships. BIM really changes those relationships, and you need a structure to accommodate that.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) has the potential to offer the Architecture/Engineering/Consulting industry significant benefit. While architectural and engineering artefacts have traditionally been developed through repetitive design and re–design regimes (forcing businesses to often re–create existing artefacts), BIM has the potential to allow partners to evolve shared design artefacts through blueprint stages to fabrication and construction.BIM is a process where digital 3D models created by architects are able to be re–used and extended across all engineering contexts (by each business partner) within a given construction project.

Throw-away Architecture

"After twenty years, the style is outdated, the need has changed, the function is obsolete, so the form has become inefficient and unnecessary, so there is simply no need for anything to last more than twenty years. With the increasing dependence on graphics programs and websites, impermanence is the expected—in no other industry than computers is there such rapid turnover for product design. State–of–the–art software becomes outdated in two years, websites often change by the day. No one wants let alone expects permanence in anything that is designed. The consumer age welcomes throw–away design."

(Megan Arendt)
