Architecture exhibits in Pittsburgh, Virginia, Montreal
In cities like New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and L.A., architecture-related exhibits and events seem to take place constantly. But if you don't live near one of these areas and are hoping to get your design fix before the summer heat sets in, you're in luck. A recent look around revealed interesting-sounding shows happening all over North America. For example:
* "Imagining Home: Selections from the Heinz Architectural Center" at The Heinz Architectural Center, Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, Pa. Open through May 30th, this show brings together drawings, models, and other items that demonstrate various ways of thinking about the concept of home over the last two centuries.
* "Glass Ceilings: Highlights from the International Archive of Women in Architecture" at the Virginia Center for Architecture, Richmond, Va. This exhibit, which goes through June 6th, examines the contributions of women such as Beverly Willis, FAIA, and the Austrian architect and actress Lilia Skala.
* "Other Space Odysseys: Greg Lynn, Michael Maltzan, Alessandro Poli" opens tomorrow, April 8th, at the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal and runs through September 6th. The press release says that "the exhibition reveals how the exploration of space has informed the rediscovery of earth, and illustrates the importance of pursuing an architecture based on the production of ideas."
