2013

October 10-18 ev e n ts .desig np h iladelphia .org


welcome to the 9th annual designphiladelphia 2013 A lot has changed in a year! The DesignPhiladelphia Festival, a celebration of the ways we interact with our world, is now a signature program of the Center for Architecture. The Center is a non-profit dedicated to educating design professionals, public policy makers, and the public at large about how design and the built environment affects us daily. The Center offers an array of public lectures, tours, film series and special programs to further that cause, and DesignPhiladelphia makes a lively and natural addition to that effort.

Mission: DesignPhiladelphia demonstrates, supports, and promotes the ability that design has to generate innovation, solve problems, enhance daily life, and influence both the perception and economics of the region. Through programming, DesignPhiladelphia consolidates the city’s design culture, bringing together innovative educators, established manufacturers, creative entrepreneurs, emerging practices, commercial businesses, and retailers, to brand Philadelphia as a 21st-century city shaped by design, technology, and business.

As we move through our everyday lives, it’s easy to take the things that surround us for granted. Every year, DesignPhiladelphia invites us to take a fresh look around. The 120 events presented for 2013 help us appreciate, once again everything we see, smell, hear, touch and even taste. This year’s theme EXPERIENCEdesign! expresses that engagement and excitement. The interactive presentations will spark emotions, evoke strong memories and create lasting connections. What is it to experience design in all its facets? You have the nine days from October 10th to October 18th to find out, plus a lifetime to explore. Enjoy!

Hilary Jay Founding Director, DesignPhiladelphia Director, Center for Architecture

The Flavors of China Philadelphia Art Alliance 251 South 18th Street Friday, October 11, 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

World-renowned artist Ryan McGinness’ monumental mural at the University City Science Center features layers of “event horizons,” creating a feeling of portals into an infinite inner space, and a strong gravitational pull on the senses. McGinness’ “Black Holes” series is an exploration of how ideas of outer space and mind space can intertwine. This mural is organized by the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program and sponsored by the University City Science Center and Bridgette Mayer Gallery.

In celebration of the PAA’s fall exhibition by Beijing-based artists Song Dong and Yin Xiuzhen, “The Way of Chopsticks,” join renowned chef Joseph Poon for a tasting and culinary celebration of the tastes of Beijing! Chef Joseph Poon became known as “the Duck Master” when he opened Philadelphia’s first Duck House, SangKee. He has cultivated the Chinese art of “Pulling Beijing Noodles,” and given demonstrations for the American Culinary Federation as well as many culinary schools across the United States. For DesignPhiladelphia, Chef Poon will use the “five tastes” of Chinese cuisine, including sweet, sour, bitter, salty and spicy, to create Beijing pork dumplings, which are served with several “secret sauces” incorporating each of the tastes for guests to sample.

scent

“P

lease bring back the escalator.”

That was one of the first requests I received when I joined PHS, and it came from longtime Philadelphia Flower Show visitors. They remembered gradually watching the exhibits of the Flower Show unfold from above at the Philadelphia Convention Hall and Civic Center, which closed its doors in 1996 and was demolished soon after. “I remember the scent of hyacinths and lilies when I entered the Show,” they said. More than anything else, this powerful fragrance stuck with them through the years—an indelible memory shared by hundreds of thousands. Scent plays a key role in landscape design. It can mark a place, time and feeling. A well placed bed of roses around the patio, or a climbing tower of jasmine near a doorway certainly provides aesthetic value, but it also triggers the memory of that place and that moment in time. Do you remember the first time you smelled a tomato plant? I do. My brother and I playing with trucks in our grandmother’s garden, reacted to that pungent scent. That singular experience in the garden remains with me today. In landscape design, we use scent to create moods and to engage: A subtle rosemary border to invite touching and tasting. A sweep of lavender to captivate and calm. Take a walk through the dozens of beautiful landscapes that adorn the city. The connection to scent will help to complete and extend your experience long after the place—and the plants—have moved on. Drew Becher President, Pennsylvania Horticultural Society

W

e are immersed in a sea of waves. The Universe seems to be nothing more than vibrations of sub-atomic quanta, visible frequencies of electromagnetic radiation and audible oscillations of air pressure. As humans, we are built to experience these waves as a solid physical reality. As designers, we shape them to form an existing reality or propose an alternate one. We all use waves to translate ideas. We commonly express our experiences by manipulating air pressure with our mouths through speech. In the same way, a sound designer uses instruments to shape vibrations into experiences. Sound does not require our gaze or attention. Its presence has effect whether or not a listener is explicitly aware of it. When immersed in audio, we are constantly processing waves as conscious and subconscious experience. Loudspeakers allow audio to be encountered in a public setting, inspiring social interaction, dance or atmosphere. Headphones create a more personal experience; we explore a constructed sonic landscape in the isolation of our own mind-space. Designing sound requires us to develop a deep understanding of waveforms and how they can be used to express ideas. Working with the raw materials of waves via synthesizers, we sculpt changes in air pressure and monitor the effects these changes have on human emotion. In this way, our work is a constant reminder of the relationship between waveforms and the experience of physical reality - between ourselves and our own consciousness. Joe Patitucci

eeing is believing. Experience is knowing. Design is making. From the sustainable to the ephemeral, from the organic to the digital, as big as an urban plan, as small as an app, the work of designers affect each moment of our everyday experiences whether we are working or playing, online or outdoors, whoever we are and wherever we are. Ideas, information, environments, technology, products, packages, services, spaces, systems, signs, software, cities, clothes, tools, appliances, homes, transportation. Can’t you see... Where would we be without design? Sight is the first sense that engages us, and leads us to an experience. Design works to make the experience better. Good design makes us happy, makes us feel smart, and improves our quality of life. Vision is the sense that trumps all others because ninety percent of the information transmitted to the brain is visual. Seeing is believing. Experience is knowing. Design is making it better. Alina Wheeler Author, Designing Brand Identity

Design research is part of a movement toward “user-centered” design that starts with the understanding of human needs and attempts to address those needs through design. Indeed, many designers see their job as designing the “experience” of those who will come in contact with their finished designs. Nine very brief presentations will be followed by a general discussion, which will, in turn, be followed by a reception of tastes and toasts.

stadler-Kahn premiers Josephine a new carpet design for the Langhorne Carpet Company stadler-Kahn 1724 Sansom Street Wednesday, October 16, 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM stadler-Kahn, a textile and design shop in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood, is premiering Josephine, a new carpet created in collaboration with the longest continuously operated Wilton carpet mill in the US, Langorne Carpet Company. Josephine was inspired by the wealth of remainder wool at Langhorne’s mill in Penndal, PA. Alex Stadler (designer/owner of stadler -Kahn) developed the striped pattern to utilize a continulously changing selection of “odd lots” of yarn into a finished and beautiful carpet. Josephine honors Philadelphia art collector and philanthropist, Josephine Albarelli, whose photos of her life in Mexico City in the 1940s and personal collection of Mexican textiles were the visual starting point for the pattern.

Frogs, Dogs, Birds and Beetle Wings: Whimsical Taxidermy in 19th Century Design Wagner Free Institute of Science 1700 West Montgomery Avenue Thursday, October 17, 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM

Reaching Across Cultures: International Design Initiatives at the University of the Arts Terra Hall, University of the Arts 211 South Broad Street Thursday, October 17, 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Victorian design is often characterized as prim and straightlaced. Author John Whitenight will examine the whimsical, creative side of Victorian decorative arts that incorporated taxidermy and objects from the natural world—squirrels enjoying parlour games, jewelry crafted from hummingbirds and a ball gown embroidered with beetle wings. Explore the lighter side of Victorian taxidermy illustrated with images and stories from John Whitenight’s newly published book Under Glass: A Victorian Obsession.

Designers have at their disposal tools which give them a unique ability to partner with communities and organizations to help initiate meaningful change. But how does this process translate across cultural, linguistic, and geographical lines? How might designers most appropriately engage other cultures? Students and faculty from the undergraduate and graduate Industrial Design programs at The University of the Arts will discuss recent design initiatives that explore the challenges inherent in working in global contexts.

“Y

ou taste with your eyes first.” -- Mark, Festival Food Seller, July, 2012. “While you’re chewing, the food releases chemicals that immediately travel up into your nose. These chemicals trigger the olfactory receptors inside the nose. They work together with your taste buds to create the true flavor of that yummy slice of pizza by telling the brain all about it!” -- posting on kidshealth.org, July 15, 2013. “What the spoon is made of, of course, can change things because somebody else did some tests not that long ago with spoons made of different metals and found out that - what a lot of people believe - that different metal tastes different to your tongue - that for many people that’s true. For some people, it’s not so true. But they - these guys also played with things like what’s the shape of the spoon? What’s the color of the spoon? How heavy is it? All those things had some effect on people. The more interesting thing to me, at least today, is when people said the taste - that actually tasted different because of how it was served or what it was served in it. It was sweeter. It was saltier, whatever. You would think that couldn’t change.” -- Marc Abrahams, Editor for the “Annals of Improbable Research”, 2012. “In matters of taste, the tongue is key.” -- excerpt from Little Baby’s Ice Cream Manifesto, June, 2013. For you see, it all works in concert, harmony and dissonance.

Jason Rhoades, Four Roads is the first major American museum exhibition of this exceptional artist who died in 2006 at the age of 41 and is among the most ambitious exhibitions ICA has ever presented. Rhoades, who grew up in California, is part of a generation of artists who created vivid sprawling environments out of a wide range of materials. Rhoades counted Marcel Duchamp, Donald Judd, race car driver Ayrton Senna, actor Kevin Costner, and the movie Car Wash, among his many diverse cultural touchstones, both high and low. His spectacular, overloaded installations use found objects, neon, Lego, power tools, macramé, snaking wires, figurines, and a vast range of other materials. Rhoades’s engagement with American car culture, cowboys, power tools, consumer culture, and the ethic of the self-made pervades, evoking a version of the American ethos that is playfully supercharged and sometimes ironic but always peculiarly sincere.

AIA Philadelphia Awards for Design Excellence Exhibition The Shops at Liberty Place 1605 Market Street Exhibition on view October 7 through October 20 Hours: Mon-Sat 9:30 AM to 6:00 pm, Sun 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM

the fashioners: Poetry of Process Mode Moderne 159 North 3rd Street Exhibition on view October 10–13, 16-18 Hours: 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM

The Awards for Design Excellence, presented annually by the Philadelphia Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, recognize the best in architectural design by local member firms. This is an accompanying exhibition. The awards will be presented at a gala dinner in Loews Philadelphia Hotel the evening of October 14.

the fashioners is a collective of designers and artists who use cloth as the main component for their individual works. Their goal is to share their expertise, ideas and resources with one another to create a lively community of support and collaboration. the fashioners’ installation for DesignPhiladelphia posits an alternative approach to the haute couture fashion house model that both illustrates and unravels the institution. Each fashioner has an affinity for particular aspects of the process resulting in: bespoke pieces that disregard rules of scale and repetition; functional garments animated by woodworked armatures; artisanal hand dyed and printed fabrics; and unique collage-accessories that reference the poetry of the process.

o pe n i n g s + ex h ibit ions Old City Windows Old City, Philadelphia Exhibition on view October 9 through October 19 Old City Windows is a design-inspired window competition and exhibit celebrating innovative thinking and visual inspiration from students, artists, and professionals in various fields of design.

touch

T

o touch is human. We touch one another in greeting a handshake, a kiss on the cheek- and we crave touch as a way to stay interconnected with other humans. Touch is a pure and wonderful mixture of physiology, physics, memory and intuition. It provokes lust, guides our way and heals what ails us emotionally and mentally. Consider that when we are born into this world, we feel the familiar touch of parents’ skin before we see. At birth, touch is our guide to sense and see the world. Haptic technology attempts to mechanically simulate touch through vibrations, forces and motion. For example, haptic technology is being developed to better simulate the hand and feel of fabrics - the potential cost savings in product development are huge. Haptic devices are also being explored by designers for modeling and prototyping other materials through the computer. Touch is probably the most complex sense to simulate and design because while the sense of touch is very tangible between human beings, its subtleties make it difficult to replicate. The after-effects of touch reverberate out to our emotions and wellbeing, and science has now documented the healing effects of touch. How amazing would it be to design sensory cues into our lives for both personal growth and commercial ventures? Learn and experience how we can design touch into our lives. Natalie W. Nixon
