Architect: Hanrahan Meyers Architects


The Juliana Curran Terian Pratt Pavilion is a new focal point for the Pratt Institute campus in Brooklyn, New York. The Pavilion will be used by Pratt students and faculty to showcase work from the Institute’s various design arts programs. Clad with stainless steel, and suspended between two existing industrial loft buildings on the main Pratt Institute campus in Brooklyn, New York, the project includes a glass entry area for the Pavilion and its neighbors, Steuben Hall and Pratt Studios. The new Design Center created by joining all three buildings houses 200,000 square feet of Institute programs. The overall new construction for the Pavilion and its auxiliary areas including the glass entrance and a new circulation bridge to the south, comprise 10,000 square feet. Behind the Pavilion, a new courtyard makes an outdoor room for informal meetings and classes in warm weather.


The Pavilion is clad with hand-finished stainless steel panels by Milgo Bufkin steel fabricators. The front facade faces north, toward the main Institute quadrangle and is all glass, with screens that pull down for rear projection to the campus, or to fully darken the space for slides or videos. The Pavilion will be mainly used as a gallery and for Institute receptions. To the south the Pavilion bridge ramps east and west creating a circulation zone that connects Pratt Pavilion, Steuben, and Pratt Studios. The bridge overlooks the new central courtyard.

The courtyard and Pavilion were designed to work together as a passive ventilation system. Windows on the south, courtyard-facing bridge facade open to bring air from the courtyard through the Pavilion and out windows on the north facade (see enclosed diagram).
Construction was complete in December 2006. Pratt Pavilion will officially open in the Spring 2007.

Fitted between the existing Pratt Studios and Stueben Hall, the new entrance pavilion by hanrahanMeyers Architects knits the two into a single 200,000 s.f. complex for nearly all of the school's design disciplines.

Entry to the Design Center is underneath the projecting volume. One immediately becomes aware upon entry of the pavilion's situation, as what was exterior is now interior. Although the brick exterior walls are kept exposed, strip lights illuminate a gap between the new entry and the two buildings, making it clear that the space is new. Through a large opening is a new steel stair that provides access up to the gallery and the rest of the complex's spaces.

born 1976 Paris, France


He has been surrounded by music, his parents introducing him to the world of music as a young child with the mini night club installed in the basement by his Father as a big initiating factor.

He dropped his synth classes after just a few lessons. Following sheet music wasn’t really his thing, he wanted to create! He then discovered the 8bits mono sampling on his old Amiga 500 at the beginning of the 90’s. He got a hundred or so songs out of that old computer. In 1996, he bought his first machine, a Groovebox MC-303, which he traded pretty quickly for a good sampler and small analog synths.

While having too many influences to name them all, he mainly listens to French electro music, lots of disco and funk with a small preference for Italian disco from the 80’s.He recalls his first live experience of 40 minutes at the Divan du Monde (Paris)on the 23rd of May, 2001, as a cool experience.

At the beginning of 2004, first signature at Serial Records, for an EP “To You” and success is there! The second “Smashing Music” will follow the same way…
2005, new single, hot hit, “I’ll Be There” is placed in the charts, the year finished well with a collaboration under the name Serial Crew (Mathieu Bouthier/Muttonheads/Demon Ritchie) and the single “Need U”! The future will be the occasion to discover new original titles, remixes, and an album planned for 2006 if all is well!

Thirteen Glass Graters 1998 / Exhibition at Rena Bransten Gallery
Chicago based artist, Candida Alvarez, will exhibit paintings, drawing, and objects using conventional and unconventional materials to explore aspects of memory. Ever since her childhood introduction to paint by numbers artworks and her own pen-and-ink drawings, she has delighted in cartoons, handicafts, kitsch, and other condensed symbols and manifestations of popular culture. A job during college at New York's Museo del Barrio sparked her interest in Pre Columbian art that led her to African art that inspired her to make figurative sculptures one could handle. The use of fabric led to collage and eventually diptychs that, in her words, showed the "duality between self and the outside world". For Alvarez, the linkage of disparate elements is what life and painting are all about - a reality where abstraction and representation meet.

Ruscha has consistently combined the cityscape of Los Angeles with vernacular language to communicate a particular urban experience. Encompassing photography, drawing, painting, and artist books, Ruscha's work holds the mirror up to the banality of urban life and give order to the barrage of mass media-fed images and information that confront us daily. Ruscha's early career as a graphic artist continues to strongly influence his aesthetic and thematic approach.

1-9 Bruton Place Westminster
W1J6NE London UK


Martin Margiela is a Belgian fashion designer. He studied at Antwerp's Royal Academy of Fine Arts along with the legendary avantgarde fashion collective the Antwerp Six. Martin Margiela was only temporarily associated with the group before he retired and was replaced by Martina Yee. Many still consider him to be the 7th member of the collective.


During the 1980s, the Japanese avantgardists, with Rei Kawakubo (Comme des Garcons), had turned the fashion scene upside-down with their eccentric and ground-breaking designs. Martin Margiela and the Antwerp Six would carry on the work, revolting against the luxurious fashion world with garments of oversized proportions such as long arms, and with linings, seams and hems on the outside. The concept of deconstruction, also embraced by the aforementioned Rei Kawakubo, is important for the understanding of Martin Margiela's fashion statement. Mr Margiela famously redesigns by hand objects such as old wigs, canvases and silk scarves into couture garments.
Throughout his career, Martin Margiela has maintained an extremely low profile. He has never had his picture taken and remains backstage after his shows. All media contact is dealt with via fax. Maison Martin Margiela’s ultradiscreet trademark consists of a piece of cloth with the numbers 0-23 (see table below). The badge is attached to the inside with its four little white pick stitches, exposed to the outside on unlined garments.

lives and works;
New York,USA

Peter Downsbrough studied architecture and art. Around the mid-1960s, after several years of work and exploring materials, an evolution took place with resulted, in 1970, in the work with the Two Pipes (outside), Two Dowels (inside), and Two Lines (on paper). At the same time, he also started taking photographs to document these pieces. Buy taking photographs of « cuts » that already existed in the urban landscape. Some of these photographs were used in books, some appeared in magazines, but it wasn’t until 1960 that they showed up in exhibitions. From 1977 on, Downsbrough realized several videos as well as audiotapes. A record was made in 1978 and released in 1982. In 1980, on the Spectacolor Board on Times Square, N.Y., he realized a piece, a 30 second spot shown once every hour for four days and documented it in a short film, « 7 come 11 ». The work with maquettes as a means of exploring space and structure started around 1983. The first commissioned public work was a wall piece realized in Rennes, France, 1990. Today, all these disciplines occupy the field of his activities.
