Ice House on Main - Heritage Preservation in Support of Community Development
BY JOSE QUINTANA
@ VOL 10
ON FEB 28, 2017
Jose Quintana discusses AdventGX's heritage preservation model - a process that leverages a community centric mix of entrepreneurship, the arts, and science in support of the development of sustainable heritage preservation. The model is market demand driven along three sustainable development vectors: financial, social and environmental.
This conservative approach to community development uses behavioral and experimental economics to mitigate risks and lower barriers to entry when embarking on new heritage preservation initiatives, not only in underserved urban communities but also in rural settings where heritage based assets are particularly important contributors to quality of life improvements.
West of Japan, East of Europe
BY DAVE CLOUGH
@ VOL 146
ON APR 26, 2017
Bruno Taut (4 May 1880 – 24 Dec 1938) was a prolific German architect who has written three influential book-length appreciations of Japanese culture and architecture. “West of Japan / East of Europe“, a collaboration between Architect Marcos Capitanio and photographer Dave Clough, is devoted to exhibiting the only existing project that Bruno Taut realized during his three-year stay in Japan, Hyuga Villa (Kyu Hyuga Bettei) in Atami, built in 1936. Both exhibition and exhibit hallmarks a sincere cross-cultural exchange achieved through the deep ponderings of spatial proportions, sentiments and materiality!
