The Contemporary Austin is currently hosting the collection of world-famous Korean installation artist, Do Ho Suh, now through January 2015. Suh is best known for his intricate sculptures that defy conventional notions of scale and site-specificity. Interested in the malleability of space in both its physical and metaphorical manifestations, his work draws immense attention to the ways viewers occupy and inhabit public space.
Do Ho Suh’s work is a must-see for artists, designers and architects alike as he forces viewers to question the boundaries of identity and the creation of our built environment.
Forge Craft’s recent collaboration with Lexington, KY-based architect Van Meter Pettit has landed the prospective Arlington Studios on the front page of Bluegrass Sunday’s Section B on November 9, 2014. Still in the zoning and planning stages, Arlington Studios promises both exceptional architectural quality with affordable pricing for Lexington’s North Limestone area. Pettit is confident in the design’s possibility in passage saying “Using sustainable principles on multi-family housing, it’s a good fit. We’re building safe, comfortable, affordable housing.”
The plan is set to go before Lexington’s city planning commission for approval on November 20.
