A New Art Capital, Finding Its Own Voice Inside Frank Gehry's Guggenheim Abu Dhabi

A New Art Capital, Finding Its Own Voice

Inside Frank Gehry's Guggenheim Abu Dhabi

Saadiyat Island

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates — The site of the future Guggenheim Abu Dhabi is desolate these days: just arid land and concrete pilings jutting out over a peninsula on Saadiyat Island, north of the city's urban center here. But in about three years, it is poised to become an international tourist attraction, when a stunning museum designed by Frank Gehry, a graceful tumble of giant plaster building blocks and translucent blue cones, is scheduled to open.
Spanning 450,000 square feet, the $800 million museum will be about 12 times the size of the Guggenheim's Frank Lloyd Wright landmark in New York and will showcase art from the 1960s to the present. The collection is being assembled from scratch by Guggenheim curators following a "transnational" template, with popular symbols of American culture like Andy Warhol's Brillo boxes or Richard Prince's photographs of the Marlboro Man juxtaposed with works by artists from China, Asia, India and the Middle East.

i-model plug-in for Revit

i-model plug-in for Revit

Publish i-models from Autodesk Revit for open infrastructure information exchange

The i-model plug-in for Revit lets users save their Revit models to an i-model file from within the Revit application

The i-model plug-in for Revit allows users to save their Revit models in a way that lets others open them in MicroStation, Bentley Navigator, AECOsim Building Designer, and any other application that can open an i-model, retaining the Revit properties information from the Revit model. The plug-in is designed to help teams working in a mixed Bentley/Revit environment to be able to reference Revit models into a MicroStation-based design workflow for coordination purposes, interference detection, and similar tasks. The i-model plug-in for Revit works with the 2010-2014 versions of the Revit products, including Architecture, MEP, and Structure, and includes support for the 64-bit versions.

ARCHTHEO '15 / IX. Theory and History of Architecture Conference

ARCHTHEO '15 / IX. Theory and History of Architecture Conference Series will focus on the relationship of 'Architecture and Criticism' as an internal part of architectural theory. DAKAM's ARCHTHEO will be held between November 5-7, 2015.

The first of the theory of architecture conference series ARCHTHEO has been held since at Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University focusing on the possibility of the theory without the backing of the practice or built environment. The title was, therefore, "Theory for the Sake of the Theory" in an emphatic fashion. In 2012, the discussion centered on the Living and space, the main has been chosen as "House&Home' in particular. ARCHTHEO '13 focused on the two leading roles in architecture, the architect and the so-called 'user' and 'Creativity, Autonomy and Function' has proved to be fruitful discussion theme. Last year, 'Architecture and Text' has been discussed. The conferences, which has the focus on history rather than theory has started even earlier, in 2010. Architecture and Media, Architecture and Art, Interactions in the History, Architecture and Politics have the main themes of the events. 
Since 2011, a total of 424 presentations by scholars from different places of the world has been hosted by ARCHTHEO Conferences and nine proceedings and a book of selected papers has been published.
ARCHTHEO is a multi-track conference. Architecture and Criticisim is the main topic of the event, but other topics listed below will also be included in the conference program.

PUBLICATION
All submitted papers are subject to double blind peer review. Conference proceedings are going to be available on DVD as e-book and DAKAM's digital library with an ISBN number before the conference and will be sent to be reviewed for inclusion in the "Thomson & Reuters Web of Science's Conference Proceedings Citation Index" (CPCI) and Google Scholars.
