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 Ramírez 4, Col. Ampliación Daniel Garza, México D.F. 11840, Tel. 52 (55) 2614 1063).

PRINCETON ARCHITECTURAL PRESS: ‘YOUNG ARCHITECTS 9 – PROOF'.
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 winners—Aranda/Lasch, Jinhee Park , ludens, PARA , PRODUCTORA, and Uni Architecture— 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
