New publications

This September, associate professor Eeva-Liisa Pelkonen ’94MEnvD launched her latest book, Exhibit A; A history of post-war architecture exhibitions in the period 1948–2000. The book, published by Phaidon, explores how architecture has pushed the boundaries of exhibition as a medium by revisiting 80 landmark shows from around the world.

Also released in September, the 51st issue of Perspecta, the Yale architectural journal, explores architecture as a medium through a series of articles, photo essays, and architectural portfolios from a wide variety of invited contributors. Perspecta is the oldest student-edited journal in the United States; Perspecta51 is edited by Shayari de Silva ’11, ’16MArch, Dante Furioso ’16MArch, and Samantha Jaff’16MArch, and designed by Carr Chadwick ’17MFA and SeokhoonChoi ’17MFA.

Two Sides of the Border

The next exhibition at the School of Architecture, Two Sides of the Border, collects research on communities from both sides of the US-Mexico border, showing that what is most often understood as a line is actually an economically and culturally integrated region. Conceived by visiting faculty member Tatiana Bilbao, the exhibition features work from 13 design studios in the US and Mexico as well as visual documentation by architectural photographer Iwan Baan. The exhibition runs from November 29, 2018, to February 9, 2019.
