The ARCH


Thank You Readers! A Week of Community-Submitted Resources! The Week in Review

We had an outstanding range of community-submitted resources this week!  Thanks so much for sharing the inside scoop on these projects, and keep it up!

It all started with Lotja Loon telling us about ‘Architecture and Design Classes: Bauhaus, Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Hundertwasser

Then we had a tour of the excellent TowerVision project, followed by my enthusiastic review, “Raising the Bar for Architectural Visualization in Second Life

Theory Shaw forwarded a jira issue related to 3D Model Interoperability, and the group responded!  There is still time to cast your vote!  See 3D Model Interoperability in Second Life”

Then Bennet Dynamo shared an invitation to the Lucien Herve exhibit opening held over the weekend.  It is a great exhibit, and worth checking out, see “Lucien Hervé Exhibit Opening July 12, 1pm PDT

Lucien Hervé Exhibit Opening July 12, 1pm PDT

This just in from Bennet Dynamo, who created an incredible gallery for this exhibit (see more screenshots below):

“I am honored to host the first show at the foundation gallery on depo park 4 presenting a selection of Lucien Herve’s fine photography of Palladio’s Architecture

July 12 at 1pm will mark our preview show and we’d be very grateful if you would join us.  One wing of the new gallery will be showing the first 11 peices of the exhibit, more wings will open through the summer months.  This exhibit is in tandom with an RL exhibit in Hungary, Herve’s birthplace.

See below for a brief bio of Herve from wikipedia:

Lucien Hervé (b. László Elkán) (August 7, 1910 – June 26, 2007) was a French-Hungarian photographer well known for his black and white photos of architecture. He was born in the city of Vasarhely in Hungary on August 7, 1910, but came to Paris in 1929 and earned French citizenship in 1938. During World War II he was captured by the Germans (at the Battle of Dunkirk), escaped, and became a member of the French Resistance under the name Lucien Hervé which he kept thereafter.

He was most famous for his collaboration with the architect Le Corbusier from 1949 to the architect’s death in 1965. His black and white photos of Le Corbusier’s buildings — with their strong lights, shadows, and monumental sense of space — are perhaps the most well known images of the architect’s work. He has also worked with the architects Alvar Aalto, Marcel Breuer, Kenzo Tange, Richard Neutra, Oscar Niemeyer, Jean Prouvé, Bernard Zerfuss, and others.

Lucien Hervé also explored photographic abstraction and collage.

Since the late 1980s, Hervé’s work has enjoyed a renewed popularity. In 2000, he showed color works of his apartment at the gallery of fashion designer Agnès b.

Not long before Herve’s death, Getty bought around 200 of his slides. The artist was married to a Holocaust survivor.
