"Rigorous Intuition: The Art of Architecture" Exhibition and Installation
OFFICE 52 Architecture, a creative innovative design studio based in Portland, is hosting an opening preview and installation of materials to be included in an upcoming gallery exhibition “Rigorous Intuition: The Art of Architecture” featuring our creative process, including painted drawings, conceptual study models and an interactive artwork. We are an architectural design studio that expresses ideas not just in innovative large-scale building projects such as the new Nano-Bio-Energy Technologies Building at Carnegie Mellon University and Tykeson Hall for the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Oregon but also in smaller more playful projects like a museum installation that draws inspiration from saturated color and natural light. Our versatility in a variety of traditional and innovative materials as a medium for exploring spatial ideas provides opportunity for us to create intuitively poetic and rich spatial experiences that are inherently sustainable. Our newly published book, Form and Dichroic Light, with a Foreword by Cesar Pelli, FAIA, will be on display. Recent awards include The Architect’s Newspaper Best of Design 2018 Award, GRAY Magazine 2018 Design Award, ACEC New York Engineering Excellence Award 2018, and Featured SCHOTT of Germany Glass Innovation Experts 2018.
