Elemental: This exhibition aims to illustrate how digital fabrication tools are indeed revolutionizing the way we think, fabricate and distribute 3D designs, and how it all together affects the practices of designers and architects. On focus in the exhibition is how digital fabrication goes from the digital world to physical reality at multiple scales. Participants will include Greg Lynn, Elena Manferdini, IwamotoScott and Florencia Pita. This exhibition is being held at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art the Patrick F. Taylor Library, designed by the nationally renowned 19th century architect Henry Hobson Richardson, located adjacent to AIA New Orleans Center for Design.
New Orleans Architecture Now: This exhibition will present the work of 35 different local architects and firms in the New Orleans region. Featuring 20 physical models, and arranged by neighborhood and type, a diverse selection of projects will be presented that reflect the great variety of work, from urban farm to master planning, that is happening in New Orleans now.
