Communication Director, Fermilab in Batavia (Illinois)

Designing a Laboratory: Art, Architecture, and the Founding of Fermilab

PRESENTED ON NOV 10, 2016
IN BATAVIA @ VOL 5

"The sculpture that straddles the lab's entrance appears symmetrical when viewed from below but asymmetrical from all over views, reflecting the view of broken symmetry that is crucial in modern physics."

Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory looks like no other science lab on Earth—thanks to the vision of founding director Robert Wilson and artist Angela Gonzales. Under their aesthetic direction, architecture, sculpture, color, and design combined to produce a lab that was revolutionary for its time. In Designing a Laboratory: Art, Architecture, and the Founding of Fermilab from PechaKucha Night Batavia Vol. 5Katie Yurkewicz shows off another side of the legendary physics lab.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, February 2nd, 2017.

Designing to the Crowd

BY AUSTIN KLEMMER
@ VOL 104 ON JUN 26, 2013

Using his experiences in Vietnam and his impressions upon moving back to Tokyo, Austin Klemmer addressed some of the fundamental issues facing designers and architects in developing countries, and the way these problems shed light on design/architecture in Tokyo. Austin offers some theoretical solutions, and gets the audience thinking about design from a different perspective. (in Japanese)

University of Tennessee Governor's Chair for Energy and Urbanism

BY JAMES ROSE
@ VOL 19 ON MAY 12, 2016

What can we do together that we can't do individually? This is the
question that serves to unite the efforts of UT College of Architecture
and Design, Skidmore Owings and Merrill, and ORNL as partners in
the Governor's Chair for Energy and Urbanism. Based in the
downtown FabLab and taught in conjunction with Phil Enquist and
others from SOM and ORNL, the Governor's Chair studios challenge
students to tackle tough design problems. One such challenge is the
architectural application of additive manufacturing or 3D printing. In
the spring of 2015 a graduate architecture studio was tasked with
developing an understanding of the opportunities and limitations of
this new technology. These findings foregrounded the design and
construction of the AMIE prototype. More akin to natural processes
like seashell growth than familiar construction, the process of
designing and building AMIE has created a platform for global
leadership in this emerging field for UT, SOM, and ORNL.
