Spring Option Studio and Lecture at HARVARD GSD
Wonne Ickx will teach this Spring Semester at the Graduate School of Design (GSD - Harvard University) in Cambridge. The studio is called 'Moving things around' and uses Aldo Rossi’s Small Scientific Theatre from 1978, to reflect upon the relation between architecture and image. "The writing on the Small Scientific Theatre has generally focused on the importance of memory within the work of Aldo Rossi. In the studio we will explore how this experimental miniature stage was established as a space in which objects, 2D drawings and 3D constructions of different scales could coexist in a seemingly unproblematic way. Components from classical scenography (flats, backdrops, legs, wings, props, etc.) and premodern theatrical devices (such as 19th Century paper or toy theaters) will be used as tools and media to investigate this relation." Wonne Ickx will lecture on behalf of PRODUCTORA on February 28, 2017 at 6.30 pm in Pier Auditorium, Gund Hall. / external link studio / external link lecture

Expo at AEDES Architecture Forum in Berlin
PRODUCTORA participates in “Unlake City - Where there was a lake now there is a city”, an exhibition running from January 28 until 21 March 2017 at the Aedes Gallery in Berlin. Curated by Miquel Adrià and Alejandro Hernández Gálvez, the exhibition's title UNLAKECITY alludes to the transformation that took place over the centuries in the valley of Mexico. The term makes reference to un lago, a lake and unlake, the process of disappearance of the lake through a constant "urban dehydration". The exhibition is divided in two sections: There was a lake and Now there is a city. The first section reflects on the meaning of water within the context of the city. The second section shows projects of public space, not only understood as squares or parks, but including cultural buildings and public institutions, such as museums, schools, markets and hospitals. Each thematic focus briefly describes the history, and shows some present conditions and takes a glance into future projects, with some utopian ideas but also that are already under construction. Besides maps, plans and photographs, the exhibition showcases a topographic model of the valley of Mexico that presents the current hydrological conditions, a video which shows the transformation of the city during the past five hundred years, and a series of interviews with Mexican architects, urbanists and intellectuals.

Lecture by Carlos Bedoya at Iowa State University
AMES, Iowa — Carlos Bedoya, founding partner of Mexico City-based architecture firm Productora, will present 'Architecture with a Detour' Wednesday, Nov. 16, at Iowa State University. Part of the 2016-17 ISU Department of Architecture Lecture Series, Bedoya’s talk will begin at 5:30 p.m. in Kocimski Auditorium, room 101 College of Design. His presentation is free and open to the public. Bedoya will look at Productora’s work 'through a set of architectural variables as a means to tease out the practice's engagement not with solving problems per se, but with engaging the inherent 'difficulty' of architecture as a productive element of design,' he said. 'Following Josef Maria Rilke’s writings, a key question of Productora’s research has been to ask how design should not only attempt to resolve difficulties, but to create architecture as difficulty: architecture imagined as a sort of detour.'

Difficult Double, Lecture at EPFL, Lausanne
Wonne Ickx will lecture at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne on Monday, April 27th at 6:30pm. The lecture series, ‘The Difficult Double’, aims to find links between firms and their influences through history. On demand of Kersten Geers, Wonne Ickx explore the work of PRODUCTORA in relation to the work of Ricardo Legorreta. From the intruduction: "Difficult Double is primarily a series of lectures, which aims to offer to EPFL a portrait of the contemporary panorama of culturally involved practices around the world. The format, echoing the Venturian idea of architecture as a ‘difficult whole’, couples each time an architect’s work and his/her own main cultural reference in the architectural production of the past, starting from the basic assumption that architecture is not so much about inventions but more about intentions. The architect and his/her obsession compose a ‘double portrait’, a ‘difficult double’, which should provide a deeper comprehension of both the architect’s and the double’s oeuvre."

Ross, Mohamed Sharif, Tom Wiscombe and many others… Opening reception Monday, April 20 from 6 to 9 pm at the Perloff Gallery, UCLA."Working drawings embody a more complicated aesthetics of utility, where formal decisions are motivated by consequences in the world. Although it is theoretically feasible, I am not sure that it is actually possible to make a good building with bad drawings. It is precisely by not searching for formal or aesthetic effect but rather by solving specific problems that working drawings paradoxically succeed as aesthetic or formal artifacts."

'Call to order' exhibition at University of Miami, Florida
This is an exhibition that is simultaneously a brief history of some of the early influential voices of the School of Architecture at UM, and a collection of works by emerging, noteworthy architects from around the world. All of the work in the exhibition can be related through their approaches to drawing and instructional method. The use of ordinary, universally appealing structures, and deceptively simple buildings that originate in geometric form are the basis of design for the architects exhibited. This approach not only links their work visually, but also theoretically, as the ever-present forms in their tool boxes hold intrinsically significant meaning and architectural power. The exhibition is on view in the Korach Gallery in the Perez Architecture Center, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. The opening of the exhibition will take place April 8 in conjunction with Roberto Behar’s Call to Order lecture on Building Stories: Some Works by R&R Studios, which begins at 6:30 p.m. in Glasgow Hall. The exhibition will run through the summer. PRODUCTORA shows the 'House of Arts and Culture in Beirut'.

Architecture Review Asia Pacific publishes an issue on 'Elements' with an article by PRODUCTORA entitled 'On Archeaology'. A fragment from the text: '... Our appreciation for the archaeology of architecture – and therefore also of archaeology as such- has to do with the very simple fact that this specific discipline (which is, just like architecture, simultaneously a science and a humanity) is entirely focussed on the physical presence of objects. Archaeology –defined in dictionaries as 'the study of material culture'- is therefore also more relevant for pre-history than for history, since the advent of recorded chronicles have displaced to a large amount this urgency of matter. If we consider the elemental part of archaeology, the excavation or the 'dig' (and we leave the speculative interpretations momentarily out) we are simply confronted with the disclosure of objects scattered in space. A numeric tri-dimensional account of items located into the earths crust. Archaeology, in a first instance, is history without words, buildings without rhetoric, space without program. It is architecture as mere matter, retained in a tri-dimensional matrix of dirt. … ' (text: Wonne Ickx). AR135-Elements (Architectural Review Asia Pacific), June 2014, Editor: Michael Holt

Exhibition IN BETWEEN PROJECTS at Woodbury University, Los Angeles
On April 8, 2014 PRODUCTORA's exhibition 'In Between Projects' will open its doors at The WEDGE Gallery, Woodbury School of Architecture in Burbank (Los Angeles), California. In the exhibition PRODUCTORA is presenting 9 un-built projects that have a clear relation to geometry and mathematical composition. Large-scale models, made in collaboration with students at Woodbury University are presented together with black and white CAD drawings that clarify the main conceptual aspect of the building. The simple positioning of the framed drawings, renderings and wooden models on the exhibition floor, avoids all museographic rhetoric and presents the work as autonomous objects in space. The title 'In Between Projects' relates to the ongoing development of a common formal vocabulary that underlies the circumstantial aspects of each individual project. This exploration is presented through an image loop of preliminary study models of the projects presented. Ultimately, the exhibition underscores the studio's belief that strong geometric compositions and clearly legible buildings allow architecture to maintain its value through unpredictable shifts in context and program over time. The exhibition is curated by Donatella Cusmá and Bojána Bányász, faculty at the School of Architecture and principals at Claret-Cup. Participating students are: Francisco Salgado, Roger Garcia, Jeanna Casale, Tecola Robinson, Chelsea Cammarata, Yumin Zeng, Casaundra Quackenbush, Isle Keijser, Melania Gourehzar, Mitzi Hernandez, Maria Belen Avigliano, Shabnam Peida, Annette Chang,, Meng Ting Sun (Jojo), Narine Ataian, Omar Montelongo, Stephen Nguyen, Alena Eisen, Adileni Lopez. Adress: WEDGE Gallery / Burbank Campus, Woodbury School of Architecture, 7500 N. Glenoaks Boulevard, Burbank, CA 91504. Until April 25, 2014. / EXTERNAL LINK - WOODBURY / Facebook

PRODUCTORA obtains mention in open international competition in Belgorod, Russia
The proposal 'In the heart of Belgorod' by PRODUCTORA has been awarded with an honorable mention in the Belgorod City Centre Competition, an open international competition organized by the City of Belgorod and Bart Goldhoorn of PROJECT RUSSIA. The competition asked participants to develop a master plan that could densify the historic city centre of Belgorod, without recurring to the typical scheme of high towers favored by Russian developers; to find the optimum between density and quality to offer the city a recipe for redeveloping the historic center as a whole. A total of 126 projects were received, of which 43 from Russia and 83 from abroad. On Monday June 19, 2013 the members of the Jury gathered at the exhibition of the projects in the Belgorod Shurkov State Technological University and selected three winning projects and three honorable mentions. The jury consisted of Pieter van Wesemael (professor of urbanism, Technical University Eindhoven), Bart Goldhoorn (curator, publisher of PROJECT RUSSIA magazine), Oleg Grigoriev (deputy director of the Moscow Masterplan Institute), Nikolai Lyashenko (architect, principal of Tsimailo Lyashenko architects), Vitali Pertsev (Chief Architect of the Belgorod region), Vasily Viktorovich Bolshanin (Chief City Artist, Belgorod, Russia) and Timur Talgatovich Valeev (Deputy Chief City Architect). / Project

ARCHIVO - Opening of the exhibition: Manual de Montaje
The exhibition 'Manual de Montaje'or 'Assembly Manual' at ARCHIVO in Mexico City will open it's doors on December 17th, 2012. The exhibition is curated and designed by PRODUCTORA and explores the tectonics of the objects that surround us. ®This interest in tectonics, or 'how things are put together', is certainly a crucial issue that the discipline is fascinated with. We are interested in how the architectural notion of 'the poetics of construction' can be applied to industrial design and the objects that surround us. (...) In this exhibition we are also interested in the drawing as crucial within design, an unavoidable link in the process of object production. Nevertheless, far from gloating in the singularity of the artistic and conceptual drawings of famous designers we often see in design museums, our interest lies in the anonymous drawing: the assembly instructions, the cutting patterns or the instruction manual.® Opening, drinks and music on December 17th at 19.00 PM at ARCHIVO (General Francisco RamÌrez 4, Col. Ampliación Daniel Garza, México D.F. 11840, Tel. 52 (55) 2614 1063).

Proof is the ninth in an annual series of publications that features the best young practicing architects as selected by the Architectural League of New York in their annual Young Architects competition. Competition entrants were asked to use the theme "proof" to frame their portfolios and critically evaluate their work. This required creating projects that acknowledge architectural design as a unique process that begins with a speculation and gains traction through the subsequent testing, confirming, checking, and rechecking that occurs before and after designs encounter the real world. Each of the winnersóAranda/Lasch, Jinhee Park , ludens, PARA , PRODUCTORA, and Uni Architectureó confronted this year's theme with work that is original, and inspiring. / Young Architects 9: Proof, Architectural League of New York / ISBN139781568987439 / 5 x 7 inches (12.7 x 17.8 cm ), Paperback, 176 pages / 350 color illustrations; 20 b&w illustrations / Text: Against Method
