Since its foundation in 1994 by Fernando Tabuenca and Jesús Leache, Tabuenca & Leache Arquitectos, a firm settled in Pamplona (Spain), has developed a wide variety of projects, from urban design to architectural design (new buildings for residential, industrial, cultural, sport, education, religious, etc.), and also renovations, interior design and product design.

Two significant built projects are the restoration and renovation of the Constable’s House and Saint George’s Parish Church, both in Pamplona. The first project has been published in the latest issue of Casabella magazine and in many other publications, and has won an American Architectural Prize. The Parish Church has received the Honor Award for Religious Architecture (IFRAA), has been exhibited at the AIA Small Project Awards Exhibition in Chicago and has also been broadly published in architectural magazines.

PARK & PEARL HIGH-RISE RESIDENCE

The Park & Pearl Residence floats among the critically acclaimed architecture of the Dallas Arts District. It is home to a forward-thinking couple who desired an industrial backdrop for their modern high- rise apartment. 

From a full floor shell apartment, the design team carved out interior spaces that celebrate the client's cutting-edge style and smartly unconventional approach to modern American life. The elegant, oval-shaped building perimeter is wrapped with floor to ceiling windows. Both the floor plan and architectural finishes were conceived to capitalize on the expansive 360 degree views and simultaneously mitigate the immense amount of Texas sunlight that would pour into the space. The window mullions were painted black to enhance the industrial feel of the residence. A midnight dark ceiling system with exposed duct work was installed and 'almost black' terrazzo floors were poured. 

The disciplined commitment to light absorption carried into secondary finishes as well with inserted broad strokes of hot rolled blackened steel, black walnut, and bright red lacquered metal walls. Living spaces, entertaining areas, and bedrooms are expertly located along the perimeter, unique views framed in each. Down the center of the unit are expansive corridors; the spine of the apartment. They provide storage, traffic flow, and gallery space. Clerestory windows allow light to inconspicuously graze the corridors without fully revealing the source.  

Aesthetically, the interior design extends the industrial architectural dialogue while avoiding loft clichés. Plush rugs, deep color tones, and bold curves create inviting gathering areas with instinctual traffic patterns encouraging people to explore the windows and views. Multifunctional rooms with custom furniture pieces function well, both for everyday activities and a robust entertaining calendar. The family room accommodates a movie night for the entire family and can also be an intimate dining spot for two. The space can be transformed for social events when one can turn the architect's famed "gizmo" and reveal a red lacquered bar hidden behind hot rolled steel panels. The client-proclaimed "man cave" has its own kitchen along with a ping pong table that doubles as a secondary dining spot for more casual affairs. 

The home is the perfect backdrop to display the owners' growing collection of contemporary art. From artists like James Brooks to Tomory Dodge, the clients have an eye for bold contemporary art that really pops and adds a unique element to this industrial residence.

“CULTURAL DEVELOPMENTS IN DALLAS”

RICK BRETTELL AND MARK LAMSTER

10 October 2017

Tuesday, 7:00 pm

Reception and check-in 6:15 pm

Horchow Auditorium, Dallas Museum of Art

The last two decades have seen dramatic developments in the cultural fabric of North Texas. In Dallas, the Arts District saw the addition of the Nasher Sculpture Center, the Wyly Theater, the Winspear Opera House, the City Performance Hall, and the completion of the Booker T. Washington campus. Fort Worth has added the Modern Art Museum and the Piano Pavilion at the Kimbell among its new signature buildings. 

Much has happened besides the completion of these signature buildings. Galleries, artist labs, new musical and theatrical organizations have also come into existence or increased their reach across North Texas. Academic centers and non-profits such as The Forum have expanded the cultural reach and raised awareness and dialogue on issues important to all of us. In addition to the Arts District in Dallas and the Cultural District in Fort Worth, there are emerging centers of creative activity across many North Texas cities. Join us for a lively discussion with Rick Brettell and Mark Lamster as we examine some of these major accomplishments over the last twenty years, and discuss what needs to occur over the next two decades with a goal of enhancing the arts and cultural opportunities for all North Texas residents.

Ms. Moore and Mr. Thompson will discuss highlights of the significant collections on display at their museums. Ms. Moore will also overview the new master plan recently completed for Chinati, while Mr. Thompson will highlight the major MASS MoCA campus expansion that just opened this year. The Symposium will conclude with a moderated conversation between Ms. Moore and Mr. Thompson, with time for audience questions.

About Jenny Moore

Jenny Moore is Director of the Chinati Foundation, a contemporary art museum founded by the artist Donald Judd in Marfa, Texas. Since her appointment in 2013, Chinati has successfully completed the latest addition to its permanent collection, Robert Irwin's untitled (dawn to dusk), 2016, a 10,000 square foot building-cum-artwork, and completed the first master plan for Chinati's complex of 34 buildings on 340 acres, accompanied by a two part symposium. In 2015, she curated the yearlong exhibition Charlotte Posenenske and Peter Roehr. Prior to her appointment at Chinati, Moore was Associate Curator at the New Museum in New York City, where she organized Pictures from the Moon: Artists’ Holograms 1969–2008 (2012) and solo presentations of the work of Charles Atlas, Ellen Altfest, Erika Vogt, Stanya Kahn, and Brian Bress. She also co-organized Rosemarie Trockel: A Cosmos (2012), NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star (2013) and Chris Burden: Extreme Measures (2013). From 2005 to 2010, Moore was Project Curator for the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. In addition, she was Exhibitions Coordinator and Assistant Curator for 10,000 Lives, the 8th Gwangju Biennial (2010), working with Artistic Director Massimiliano Gioni.

The specific intention of Chinati is to preserve and present to the public permanent large-scale installations by a limited number of artists. The emphasis is on works in which art and the surrounding landscape are inextricably linked. Located on 340 acres of land on the site of former Fort D.A. Russell in Marfa, Texas, construction and installation at the site began in 1979 with initial assistance from the Dia Art Foundation in New York. The Chinati Foundation opened to the public in 1986 as an independent, non-profit, publicly funded institution. Chinati was originally conceived to exhibit the work of Donald Judd, John Chamberlain and Dan Flavin. The collection was expanded and now includes 15 outdoor concrete works by Donald Judd, 100 aluminum works by Judd housed in two converted artillery sheds, 25 sculptures by John Chamberlain, an installation by Dan Flavin occupying six former army barracks, and works by Carl Andre, Ingólfur Arnarsson, Roni Horn, Ilya Kabakov, Richard Long, Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, David Rabinowitch, and John Wesley. Each artist's work is installed in a separate building on the museum's grounds.  

About Joseph Thompson

Joseph Thompson is the founding director of the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA), having guided the museum’s development and arts programming since its inception in 1987.  The arts complex has grown from 200,000 square feet of renovated space to over 550,000 square feet of galleries, stages, workshops, and commercial tenant space, including 130,000 square feet of new space that opened in May 2017.  One of the largest centers in the world for making, showing, and enjoying new art, music, theater, and dance, MASS MoCA is renowned for its daring programs of large-scale exhibitions and performances that capitalize on the museum’s vast 28-building, 16-acre site.  It is also the home of the long-term retrospective of Sol LeWitt wall drawings and a long-term installation of the paintings and sculpture of Anselm Kiefer.  The recently opened Phase III of MASS MoCA’s three-decade re-inhabitation of the site added quasi-permanent exhibitions and changing programs with works of Jenny Holzer, Laurie Anderson, James Turrell, the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, and the Louise Bourgeois Trust.

A graduate of Williams College and the University of Pennsylvania, where he was an Annenberg Fellow, Mr. Thompson holds an MBA from the Wharton School of Business, where he was named a Morgenthau Fellow for his work in public policy and management.  Thompson has written widely on contemporary art, and has organized many exhibitions and performing arts events at MASS MoCA, including the first solo exhibition of the visual art of David Byrne; the Clocktower Project, a permanent sound art installation by Christina Kubisch; Robert Wilson’s 14 Stations; Tim Hawkinson’s Überorgan; Ann Hamilton’s corpus; Cai Guo-Qiang’s Inopportune; and, most recently, Xu Bing: Phoenix.  For his work in the arts and regional economic development, Thompson has been awarded the Commonwealth Award (the highest award granted to private citizens by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts) and the Williams College Bicentennial Medal for outstanding achievement by a Williams College alumnus.  Under Thompson’s tenure, MASS MoCA’s visitation has grown from 80,000 in 1999 to over 160,000 in 2016, about twelve times the population of its home city, North Adams, Massachusetts. The arts center is recognized as an important catalyst for regional economic revitalization, supporting over 600 jobs and $32 million per year in economic impact to the region.

NOTE VENUE LOCATION:

One Arts Plaza Conference Center

The birthplace of Neiman Marcus and home to NorthPark, Dallas is a city whose identity has been built on the art of retail excellence. From fine dining to world-class luxury shopping that bridges art and fashion, Dallas has, in many ways set the highest standard for retail across the nation. In recent years, however, there has been a noticeable shift towards themed, gimmicky trends, in both shopping and dining.

Fighting to break free of a cycle of trends, consumers are now searching for undeniable authenticity and lasting culture. Shaking off buzzwords, they instead want immersive, visceral experiences. This Panel will explore the future of the retail landscape, and how innovative design can shape memorable environments and genuine experiences.

“Multi-Family Housing”

6 June 2017
Tuesday, 6:30 pm, Informal reception at 6:15 pm

Venue:  NOTE LOCATION

Dallas Black Dance Theatre, 2700 Ann Williams Way, Dallas, TX 75201

Behind One Arts Plaza, at the Corner of Arts Plaza Street and Ann Williams Way,

Entrance on Ann Williams Way, Free parking is available between the DBDT building and Fellowship Church, located to the east of the Dallas Black Dance Theatre 

Dallas-Fort Worth and North Texas have a current population of roughly 7.1 million people, more than double in the number of residents over the last twenty years. We are experiencing a population surge among the highest in the United States. Forbes quotes DFW as building 10% of the apartments nationwide, and it seems that the demand for multi-family housing in the region is almost insatiable. This also represents a shift in the type of housing that the Metroplex has historically demanded, moving from suburban single-family residences to condensed and stacked urban living.

What exactly precipitated this shift, and what does the future hold for these building types? Will suburban centers in North Texas, which have tended to hold out on such projects, be forced to begin to build multi-family style buildings due to overwhelming demand? And what happens to these buildings in the future when demand is not as high, or if the population migrates? We will discuss these questions as well as other important considerations of the multi-family housing boom during this Panel.

“Preservation Issues for Dallas”

16 May 2017
Tuesday, 6:30 pm, Informal reception at 6:15 pm

Venue:  NOTE LOCATION

Dallas Black Dance Theatre, 2700 Ann Williams Way, Dallas, TX 75201

Behind One Arts Plaza, at the Corner of Arts Plaza Street and Ann Williams Way,

Entrance on Ann Williams Way, Free parking is available between the DBDT building and Fellowship Church, located to the east of the Dallas Black Dance Theatre

The last two decades have seen a monumental shift in historic preservation both in Dallas and across the country. This is reflective of a broader renewed interest in the built environment - old and new - specifically how buildings, landscapes and places impact our lives. Twenty years ago, there was very little research on the physical and mental impact of buildings and landscapes. Today there are many more studies available on the subject, as well as a greater general interest in how our surroundings affect our bodies and minds. 

It has been said that historic preservation efforts are like a town's autobiography. The decision to keep or demolish something for the future is based on the values of a particular time and place and attitude. Dallas's citizens are increasingly interested in the decision-making process that determines what their surroundings look like and how it will affect them. The Demolition Delay ordinance as one example of the citizenry's growing focus on the preservation decisions being made in their city. The quality and quantity of the city preservation staff has grown to a complete office, and many team members hold degrees in historic preservation related fields. Many internal changes such as increased training, education, and public outreach are happening as a result of the Downtown Preservation Solutions Committee.

While there is clearly an increased interest in the historic built environment from both the public and local government, the decisions that impact citizens are still largely unguided.  With no city planning department, there is a lack of vision and coordination in how the city develops and re-develops. We are working off a Preservation Plan from 1987 and our surveys are decades old. These tools need to be updated to guide future development and preservation efforts.
