Andrew Zago, principal of Bouwman Zago Architecture, has over thirty years of professional experience in architecture, urbanism, and education. He is a native of Detroit, holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Michigan, and a Master of Architecture from Harvard University.  In 1987 he founded AKS RUNO in Los Angeles with Bahram Shirdel and later, Shirdel Zago Kipnis with Bahram Shirdel and Jeffrey Kipnis. In 1991 he established Zago Architecture—Bouwman Zago’s predecessor firm. Zago is a member of the design faculty at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI- Arc) and Clinical Professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He has also taught at Harvard University, Cornell University, the University of Michigan, UCLA, UC Berkeley, and the Ohio State University. From 2003 to 2007 he was the founding director of the Master of Architecture program at the City College of New York. He frequently lectures, and his work has been exhibited internationally. In 2018 he published Accident, the first book of his planned Polygraph series of mismatched publications documenting the breadth of his creative output. Zago is a fellow of the American Academy in Rome and a recipient of both an Academy Award in Architecture from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and a Fellowship Grant from the United States Artists organization.

Led by partners Laura Bouwman and Andrew Zago, Bouwman Zago Architecture brings open-ended, creative inquiry to disciplinary concerns in architecture. Noted for its prescient articulation of emerging sensibilities, the practice weds quasi-autonomous aesthetic studies to the art of making buildings and cities. In doing so, Bouwman Zago reaffirms the substantial and productive link amongst art, architecture and urbanism. The firm has completed projects in the US, Mexico, and Korea including the Fine Venture office tower in Seoul, the Cornell Synthesis Studio for Cornell University’s Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD).

Andrew Zago, principal of Bouwman Zago Architecture, will be presenting Wednesday March 4, 2020 at 4:30 PM in DAAP Aronoff 5401

Daniel Shieh

March 26, 2020 at 6:00 pm in DAAP 5401 - POSTPONED

Daniel Shieh is an artist from Taiwan. He creates interactive installations that encourage participants to view each other from a different perspective. The installations usually involve two or more participants to activate. Once activated, they isolate parts of the participants’ bodies, such as the gaze or breath. Participants then present themselves to each other in a mediated manner, such as reflecting one’s gaze through mirrors or delivering one’s breath via an inflatable device.

His installations have been commissioned by Art in Odd Places, Cedarhurst Center for the Arts, University City Municipal Commission on Arts & Letters, and Harvard Office for the Arts. He has been invited as an artist in residence to the School of Visual Arts, Cité Internationale des Arts,

Franconia Sculpture Park, Spruce Arts, Laboratory Spokane, the Studios at MASS MoCA, Wave Pool Gallery, Monson Arts, and Jamestown Art Center.

Futurefarmers (Amy Franceschini + Lode Vranken)
April 16, 2019 at 6:00 pm in DAAP 5401 - POSTPONED

Futurefarmers is a group of artists, activists, farmers and architects with a common interest in creating frameworks of participation that recalibrate our cultural compass. Their work uses various media to enact situations that disassemble habitual apparatus; performance, architecture, temporary public art, permanent public art, lectures and publications. They produce relational objects that serve as tools for audiences to gain insight into deeper fields of inquiry- not only to imagine, but also to participate in and initiate change in the places we live.

Wandering might be what Futurefarmers do best—sure, on land and at sea, but also through anecdotes of history, or lines of inquiry that trespass disciplines, or into the materiality and means of production of everyday things. This kind of wandering, a bit more directed than flânerie, a bit more open than academic research, has led them from grain fields to nuclear test sites to the brick pathways of Harvard; from orchards to stock exchanges to the telescope observatories; from studios to picnics to libraries and factories; from galleries to the highest peaks of San Francisco. Up there, where the clouds touch the ground, the fog bodies will condense, and transform the environment. Their work has been exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Whitney Biennial in New York, NYMOMA, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Canadian Center for Architecture in Montreal, the 2014 Venice Architectural Biennale and beyond.
