Roberto Rovira will be showing five sketchbooks as part of the inaugural exhibit of the new Miami Center for Architecture and Design / MCAD at 100 NE 1st Ave., Miami, FL 333132, the new home to AIA Miami.
Drawn from Miami, which opens 06DEC at 7pm and goes until 07FEB2014 will include original drawings from Morris Lapidus, Herzog and DeMeuron, Alfred Browning Parker, Richard Meier, Felice Grodin, Arquitectonica, Roberto Rovira, Enrique Norten, Aranda Lasch, MOS, Johnston Mark Lee and many more…
An open call drew 350 submissions and five architects and academics curated the show: Jake Brillhart, Nick Gelpi, Jean-Francois Lejeune, Terence Riley, and Allan Shulman (who was also the architect for MCAD).
“Drawn from Miami will explore Miami through the hands of the architects who have shaped it. The exhibit materials will be “drawn” from a variety of resources, including archives, academic institutions, private collectors and, most importantly, the personal collections of individual architects. Drawn from Miami will detach itself from the digital and technological aspects of design; it will focus on the hand drawings as a window into creative and analytical processes, and the personal vision of architects. The exhibition will highlight the continuous yet changing role of drawings, from historical delineation to contemporary sketches and the interaction of analog and digital media. Drawing on materials from Miami’s mix of local, national and international designers, the exhibition will explore the buildings, spaces, master plans and installations that define the city’s identity.”
