Art in Architecture Webinar Series Returns March 12

Posted by Pete Hicks on 3/5/15 10:18 AM   |  1 min read time

For two decades after the end of World War II, experimentation in architecture and design led to the creation of a stylistic lexicon where structures defied gravity, cars flew, and buildings resembled lunar landers. This iconic, The Jetsons-esque era is the topic of this year’s first Art in Architecture webinar, “Atomic Architecture in America: 1945-1965.”

From the Pyramids at Giza to the Eiffel Tower, architects have always strived to make their mark on the world. And as the technological ability of these designers has increased, so too has the scale of the architecture that they leave behind. However, this presents a unique problem: If every architect is working to create distinctive structures, what makes a building truly iconic?

Earn 1 AIA LU and Decide if Konstantin Melnikov was a Constructivist, a Rationalist, or Both

Posted by Pete Hicks on 11/14/14 11:54 AM   |  2 min read time

The year is 1917; Russia has just pulled out of World War I, the last of the Tsars have been deposed, and Konstantin Melnikov walks out of architecture school, degree in hand, ready to make his mark on the world. The rapidly changing political, economic, and social landscape of the time was reflected in many forms of art, including architecture, whose practitioners rallied into two camps: the constructivists, who believed that buildings should exist solely to serve a function, and the rationalists, who argued for the place of idealism in the design process. Melnikov seems to defy this binary at every turn, creating projects that could fit into both categories and wouldn’t look out of place among the works of today’s “modern” architects. His visionary designs are dissected and analyzed in the first installment of Nemetschek Vectorworks’ Art In Architecture webinar series, “Melnikov: Early Sparks of Russian Iconic Architecture.”
