Art. Fashion and Architecture
by Replica Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton has partnered with artist Camille Scherer to present the new <em>"Louis Vuitton : Art. Fashion and Architecture"</em> book. The book will be available in stores this Friday, September 11th. Now you can watch the animated movie of the book coming to life above.

I employed to possess like merely a tiny child through the 80s. That jeweler experienced glitter collectively with other tiny, shiny treasures floating through the brightly-colored goo inside, the arrangement near to the LV logos and stars on this scarf actual physical appearance like somebody has squeezed each of the floating goodness in the direction of the edges. It is casual, glam, and several fulfilling - wonderful to the sort of rag-swinging that TI appears getting advocating. purchase by method of eLuxury for $340.

The internet and luxury have consistently been sort of mutually exclusive. The internet is broad, democratic, and welcomes all kinds; it has altered the way in which those purchasers interact with companies in basic methods that take place to be continually evolving. Luxury producers are narrow, elitist, and concentrate on the really particular clientele. They need a little of secret and aloofness so that you simply can acquire aspiration and make their conventional brand identities work, and they are typically not thinking about altering how their companies interact with...well, anyone. "The way it has consistently been done" is idealized and worshiped in an almost religious way, as well as although a terrific offer of below-the-surface methods have evolved in current many years (most notably, manufacturing), the way in which that producers want one to perceive them has remained largely untouched for Louis Vuitton Replica.
But the trouble with this whole internet thingamabob could be the actuality that it is type of insidious also it is altering the way in which that guys and girls of the assortment of incomes and interpersonal standings store and inform by themselves about potential purchases. Style exhibits are no lengthier individual activities for an elite set of celebrities, editors, and clients; they are presentations of products that will normally be witnessed within their entirety by common people within minis of the completion. There could possibly be exclusivity left inside the invitation to show up at a show, but not inside the details that just one gains by attending.

Beauty in Architecture

By Frank Lyons

'Conceptual Art' that dominates the world is locked substantially into the realm of thinking which is why we are required to learn about the individual particularity of the artist and her ideas. Conceptual art by its own definition has moved substantially into the cerebral realm, and minimised the experiential dimensions of the works. In 1941, the architectural historian Sigfried Giedion, discussed a split which he perceived to have opened up between society's thinking and feeling; a split which he described as being one of the illnesses of our age. It was a schism that he felt society we were leaving behind with the onset of modernism, but as we are seeing, that was a premature conclusion. That split has not yet been resolved; indeed it seems to be wider than ever and the fragmentation of the artistic disciplines and their respective audiences seems to be for ever increasing within the context of our post-modern world. The relativity and inclusiveness of Post-modernism is to be welcomed and celebrated but the fact that everything should be tolerated does not mean that everything should be equally valued. The post-modern condition does not suggest a way out of this situation. In the post-modern world everything is different but equal; to introduce value into such a relative world we need to transcend the relative, engage the qualitative, and thus enter the world of excellence, the theme of this conference.

The reason I feel that excellence is a way out of the post-modern maelstrom is because it requires us to transcend the relativity of variety, difference and interpretation. 'Excellence' we find defined as "pre-eminent in quality", and 'quality' defined as "Degree of excellence". It is one of those words whose definition seems to be cyclical. Its meaning appears to turn in on itself, it becomes difficult to pin it down, it is elusive rather like the phenomenon itself. It seems to me to belong to another realm, another dimension. If the relative world operates in the two dimensional plane of everyday life, the life of variety, change and difference, the qualitative world of excellence potentially cuts vertically through that dimension at every point. We could perhaps also imagine it as a series of qualitative planes stacked one above the other with the pre-eminent plane suggesting excellence. But the pre-eminent plane is never wholly grasped because the vertical transcendent dimension is infinite. Although this qualitative axis cuts through the relative world and is experienced in terms of the relative world, its characteristics are wholly different.

If the relative world is understood in terms of the relationships between objects, forms, colours, textures and ideas the qualitative dimension is distinguished by the nature of those relationships. If the relative world is described by 'what', the qualitative dimension is described by 'how'. We could almost say that in the qualitative realm it matters less what objects, forms, colours, ideas are related in a work, but more importantly how they are related. When we talk about 'what we relate', we talk about the type, the size, the number, the cost; when we talk about 'how we relate', we talk about taking time, about taking care and even about loving what we are doing. When we are in the qualitative realm we focus on the way that things are brought together. The precision with which colours, forms, textures and ideas are balanced and composed becomes all important to the artist and architect. It is because these creative individuals are concerned about the way things are brought into relationships that the work as a 'wholly integrated ensemble' becomes more important than the individual parts. Beyond that, the way that that ensemble is stitched into the greater whole of the discipline or more generally the culture, is also of equal importance. Wholeness and balance are therefore central phenomena in a consideration of the qualitative dimension of architecture and the arts.

Architecture - Is Originality Always Feasible Or Desirable? (Notes on the Avant-Garde)

By Michael A. Vidalis

Architecture as an art is required to be original, or at least it should strive to be. In the pragmatics of architectural practice though, one realizes that a host of conditions or determinants often interfere or intervene, so the resulting project is a far cry from it. Let alone that so called signature projects are equally unattainable for most designers.

It is rather uncontested, that a work of architecture in order to stand apart requires the simultaneous existence of two conditions: a gifted designer, as well as, a receptive or visionary client. It is very rare for excellence to be achieved otherwise. One of course can analyze this ad nauseam, thinking of all possible variations or sub conditions, but of no avail.

On occasion an architect has been successful in steering a client towards his philosophy, or convincing him of the merits of his ideas, but this is an entirely different subject, opening Pandora's Box. It is the debate having to do with the role of the architect, or his "obligation" to steer the uncultured masses... See Adolf Loos' "The Poor Little Man" and the notion of Gesamtkunstwerk.

Interpersonal relationships are indeed rather complex. The architect-client relationship is deemed pivotal to the success of a project. Historically, patrons of the arts and architecture such as the Medici family in the Renaissance were instrumental in the creation of great works of art. To a lesser extent, men of great vision are still found today, providing the much needed impetus to grand or original works.

It is often expressed by architects that a limited budget presents an impediment to creativity or their uninhibited artistic expression. To see how erroneous this view is, we need only bring to mind acknowledged architectural marvels that were accomplished with limited means, such as the little Schullin Jewelry store in Vienna, a project that was identified with the post-modern movement (Hans Hollein, architect, 1982). Or plenty of contemporary projects in the L.A. area, by architects employing humble materials in the elevations of the structure (For instance, see the Container House by Peter Demaria - 2006, the M House by Xten architects - 2004, or the Schmalix residence by Fung + Blatt architects - 2000).
Another objection raised has to do with the limited time allowed to design or construct the project. What about though fast-track design or fast-track construction? Lastly, an additional objection by architects has to do with the limitations presented by building codes. Again, being forced by limitations or constraints one has to reshape, reinterpret, reinvent or rethink the problem or its parameters at hand, thus presenting an opportunity for the new to surface.

The list of architects that have achieved excellence in original artistic expression is long: Sant' Elia, Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, Philip Johnson, Robert Venturi, Tadao Ando, Zaha Hadid, Saana...

Analyzing the work of the above, or that of other architects - acknowledged leaders of a fresh approach in the 'arts' - pioneers in their own right (not only in the mind of critics but by general acclaim), we may try to analyze the underlying common factors, if any. How did these men develop, why did they stand out, and how did they contribute to a valid architectural discourse? How did they leave their indelible mark? How did the avant-garde come about?

Some support that uniqueness is the reward, the eventual fruition of many years of plain hard work and insistence, questionable though as far as architecture is concerned, or for the arts as a whole as we shall later see (isn't the invalidity of this reasoning apparent when we attempt to justify the artistic success of many young or 'inexperienced' creators? As an example, one of the most monumental edifices ever built, La Grande Arche de la Defense (1982- 1989), in Paris, was the result of an international architectural competition with 400 entries from 40 countries. Winner, an unknown Danish architect, Otto von Spreckelsen, whose only experience was limited to designing his own home and two churches in his country! Or, the enigmatic house Venturi designed for his mother, Chestnut Hill, Pennsylvania (1962), his second built work).

It is deemed necessary to refer to Professor Pavlos Mylonas. During his reception at the Academy of Athens and awarding of Membership, Mylonas said: "...in the most creative 20th Century, the Greek architectural family has treaded a path just parallel to the Modern Movement, as happens with most other not large [small] countries. Worth mentioning not because remarkable Greek designs have not entered the International Pantheon, but because - the subject tonight being Theory - since the days of the late Greek architectural aesthetician Panayotis Mihelis, basically no noteworthy Greek contribution has been made to contemporary international architectural thinking. And this, perhaps due to the fact that in our country the presuppositions were not in place timely, that could lead to the realization of an innovation ["modernism"]". (1.)

What are perhaps the presuppositions stated, irrelevant perhaps of a country's size? Akin perhaps to a 'greenhouse', that may foster the growth, development and export of ideas? Indisputably, rarely the avant-garde just happens, as lightning on a clear day, the presuppositions not being there, or the conditions not being ripe for change, not having the proper climate so to say (lets attempt to define the 'avant-garde' as essentially the questioning and rejecting or denouncing of the status quo. In its meekest manifestation though the avant-garde is simply a reformation). At a personal or artistic level, it is the result of a journey or a stance, and a process affected by external conditions. The artistic stagnation or stalemate, affected both by internal and external conditions, doesn't really lend itself to change. The 'climate' is not right to foster growth.

Therefore, attempting to understand how the "avant-garde" was born, we observe that its manifestation requires certain conditions; conditions, that when these occur concurrently, enhance the possibility of its happening. These are:
A. The social and political infrastructure (Including the 'economy').
B. The picture in the art world at large.
C. The educational system, with an emphasis on technology and the arts.

Collectively, the above determinants synthesize and define the factor 'environment'. Although 'technology' as a determinant played a major role in earlier developments, its almost universal accessibility today, in the age of information, especially in the developed world, weakens its influence relative to the other determinants (Bearing in mind though that technology in Modernism, served as the very instrument by which the avant- garde was achieved).

Specifically, Modernism, the influential 20th Century movement in architecture and the arts, appears unavoidable in that light, when one realizes that all three of the above conditions were in place: the industrial revolution that had preceded it, the 'fertile' artistic climate in Old Europe, especially in Germany and Vienna, and naturally the Bauhaus, that came to house the whole undertaking.

Attempting to comprehend the "seminal" and "problematic" work of Erik Gunnar Asplund, a work that defies easy classification that has puzzled critics and historians alike, the contribution of "environment" is often overlooked. Kenneth Frampton states it eloquently: "Most commentators have missed the point that Asplund's whole achievement was set in a particular cultural context of which he was the primary but by no means the sole representative". (2.)

Often the avant-garde attempts to peer through or establish itself through the writing of a manifesto, while at times, the manifesto itself becomes a 'crutch', a substitute of built work, as in the case of futurist Antonio Sant' Elia (His dream like sketches constitute a de facto manifesto). In Italy, futurism emerges through Sant' Elia's vision, Citta Futurista (1914). While at times, a single sketch becomes the springboard for an entire movement, as in the case of Vladimir Tatlin. His sketch, a proposal for a large steel building-monument to the 3rd International in Moscow (1920), effectively defined Constructivism. While Robert Venturi's landmark book, 'Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture' (1966), became a manifesto for a critical look at modernism that evolved into historic eclecticism.

Art 'converses' with architecture as we saw, offering its critical input. Although art today is in a protracted period of flux, with the coexisting of many trends (often contradictory), it does have a lot to contribute to architectural thought, as it historically did on occasion (The collectivity or interdependence of Gesamtkunstwerk).

According to Jacques Paul Grillo "... art is often the result of a masterly flouting of the rules". Were we to adopt this statement, in effect a definition isn't then all art considered avant-garde, as dynamically changing within a framework of continuous questioning and rejection? In its most extreme version, does the adoption of an avant-garde become utopian?

In the 21st Century, architecture seems to have forgotten the contribution of the social sciences, contribution that effectively shaped the architectural morphology during the 1960s. The computer generated 'distortions', and, the 'artsy' or 'nebulous' presentations, apparently leave no room for the social dimension of architecture...The freeing from the 'sirens' though requires the input of information unknown to the architect, specifically, information that stems from the method of short-term psychotherapy (Method of Watzlawick, Weakland και Fisch.). This multidisciplinary approach is very relevant here. Considering the changing of the status quo as Second Degree Change, since external forces realize it, First Degree Change appears more familiar as it is realized from forces within the system. Subsequently, the prescribed changing of the status quo leads to the avant-garde. This theory of change differentiates between "difficulty" and "problem", and stresses that, not addressing appropriately the first leads to the second (The difficulty of the artistic stagnation or stalemate if not addressed appropriately leads to the problem of status quo...). Second Order Change is 'the change of change', a phenomenon that Aristotle so vehemently denied to accept... Bearing in mind the above it is apparent why we so often resist Second Order Change, perceiving it as odd or absurd. This explains why we resist any substantive change: its external framework is unfamiliar to us. The changing of the system, the elevation from one level to the next, are understood with the aid of this Theory of Change, and through associated techniques such as reframing, etc. At the same time, we must warn against the Utopia Syndrome, that is, when change is sought or accomplished even though it is not needed (Change for change's sake...). In this light it is apparent how difficult it is for the artist to create something entirely unique and substantive ("strange"), and for the public to understand or accept it.

As Professor George Sarigiannis, remarks, today we are often "...basically caught in an agonizing chase of originality, originality though without meaning and internal structure, the work produced being far-out, impressive, 'original', but not having any organic relation to the function, the construction or the structure of the building" (In Renaissance, the older the better, in antithesis with the avant-garde where, the newer the better. An evaluation where the criterion of time is a measure of artistic worthiness). (3.)

Originality often stems from theory, assuming the role of a beacon. Originality has to do with the desire as well as the ability to bring about change. It is uniquely tied to a spirit of experimentation. It is the desire to envision and produce a truly creative piece of work, a statement of avant-garde. Ironically, with the passage of time, the avant-garde becomes the status quo, which will in time itself be questioned and replaced by the new avant-garde. This transformation, these dynamics in the arts and in architecture, is part of their substance, and quite interesting, especially if we understand the underlying mechanisms.

Granted, we touched upon a few of the issues involved, and those even laconically. Hoping these snippets of ideas is just a stimulus for further thought... Is originality or the avant-garde always feasible or desirable? The architect should ask himself, then, his client.


What Is Rendering

''Where do architects and designers get their ideas?'' The answer, of course, is mainly from other architects and designers, so is it mere casuistry to distinguish between tradition and plagiarism?
Stephen Bayley

A building is akin to dogma; it is insolent, like dogma. Whether or no it is permanent, it claims permanence, like a dogma. People ask why we have no typical architecture of the modern world, like impressionism in painting. Surely it is obviously because we have not enough dogmas; we cannot bear to see anything in the sky that is solid and enduring, anything in the sky that does not change like the clouds of the sky.
Gilbert K. Chesterton

A doctor can bury his mistakes, but an architect can only advise his clients to plant vines.
Frank Lloyd Wright

A modern, harmonic and lively architecture is the visible sign of an authentic democracy.
Walter Gropius

A structure becomes architectural, and not sculptural, when its elements no longer have their justification in nature.
Guillaume Apollinaire

Ah, to build, to build! That is the noblest art of all the arts. Painting and sculpture are but images, are merely shadows cast by outward things on stone or canvas, having in themselves no separate existence. Architecture, existing in itself, and not in seeming a something it is not, surpasses them as substance shadow.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

All architects want to live beyond their deaths.
Philip Johnson

All architecture is great architecture after sunset; perhaps architecture is really a nocturnal art, like the art of fireworks.
Gilbert K. Chesterton

All fine architectural values are human vales, else not valuable.
Frank Lloyd Wright
