StereoType: New Directions In Typography opens tonight at the Boston Society of Architects. The Rice+Lipka designed exhibition compiles a selection of designers and artists from around the world who are exploring opportunities at the intersection of technology and design, expanding the boundaries of traditional typography and integrating elements from the fields of animation, craft, performance, nanoscience, and graffiti into their work.
The exhibition, curated by C2, runs through May 25th, after which it will travel to venues across the United States throughout 2016.
Astrid Lipka and Lyn Rice were honored last Friday evening with the 2014 AIA New York State Award of Excellence for the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD), designed in collaboration with James Corner Field Operations. The award was conferred at the NYSAIA's annual design conference in Saratoga. MORE >10/10/14
Dwell sat down with Lyn Rice & Astrid Lipka this afternoon for the talk/panel discussion Between Civic and Residential Architecture today at Dwell on Design NY. R+L's talk explored the blurred intersection of civic and residential space, addressing both civic work's increasing tendency to incorporate domestic characteristics and urban dwellings' demand for more communal space. R+L was joined on the panel by Vivian Lee of Richard Meier & Partners at 82 Mercer in SoHo where 5,000 members of the design elite gather for innovative installations and onstage discussions centering around public space, urban infrastructure, and more.
