We're delighted to announce the news that Allyson Vieira received a Graham Foundation grant for ON THE ROCK:THE ACROPOLIS INTERVIEWS to be published by Soberscove in Spring 2018.
ABOUT THE BOOK: The marble workers laboring on the decades‐long restoration of the Acropolis are the invisible force rebuilding one of the world's most storied monuments. Their work is a highly technical amalgam of past and present, yet what these master marble carvers do and how they do it has remained undocumented until now. As the restoration enters its final phases, this timely book of interviews explores the workers' craft, techniques, training, and specific roles within the restoration in their unique and deeply personal voices. Concurrently, the book considers Greece's political and economic crisis from the workers' position. Amidst crippling unemployment, work on the Rock continues, despite radical cuts. How has the Greek crisis affected the technicians' thoughts about their craft, jobs, and citizenship? On the Rock: The Acropolis Interviews explores the intersection of these issues. #grahamfoundation #grahamgrantee #acropolis #athens #allysonvieira

DETAIL KULTUR - If buildings had DNA: Case Studies of Mutations'.
.
Three challenges…

Architectural details are typically communicated through technical drawings. A photograph or model might convey details in context or the ultimate visual effect generated by a detail, but the drawing remains its standard referent and it is from drawings that details are archived, revised and appropriated.
.
One challenge of Detail Kultur is: How do we come to understand the relevance of details through their drawings? How are drawings handled as more than illustrations for text? Can text serve the drawings and suggest new ways of looking at these drawings?
.
Another challenge involves opening up details as typological elements with their own histories and cultural associations. A door, for example, is a physical thing and a metaphysical construct – and details get implicated in both directions of door-ness. Is it fair game to recollect all the implications of a door or threshold when also studying their handling by select architects for specific constructions?
.
Lastly, how can we treat a subject that is not best served by a classical progression of arguments? Multiple case studies, many details, a profusion of drawings are a part of the story and their organization as a cross-referencing index is central to this investigation. In this way it is a compendium, but also a trigger for new work and research. ...three opportunities. #grahamfoundation

So much fun to get my girlfriends back all the way from Philly and Naperville. Missed only @david_hartt, but not entirely! #grahamfoundation #intheforest
