Quarra Collaborators Win Progressive Architecture Awards
Architecture Boston Magazine features Jim Durham in “Material Witnesses”
Stone: Jim Durham
by Cliff Gayley, FAIA
Principal at William Rawn Associates, Architects.
Recalling our climb to the top of Zervreilahorn, the 9,500-foot peak overlooking the Vals quarry in the Swiss Alps, I appreciate what makes Jim Durham of Quarra Stone a unique force in the world. A stone supplier without a quarry and no particular stone to market, Durham combs the globe for new variations and sources. He is a consultant who can do as well as teach, a fabricator with a forte for computerized cutting and shaping. Exuberant and thoughtful, curious and proactive, he is focused on listening to and acting on the goals of architects who seek him out. “I think stone is different from other materials,” he says, “because it is more of a place; it is a holder of meaning and of history.”
Published in Vogue, Designed by Leong Leong, Fabricated by Quarra
“What Happens When Architects Design Furniture?”: A question explored by two furniture exhibitions displayed simultaneously at Friedman Benda Gallery in New York. The piece to keep an eye out for is the Heavy Rocker, Designed by Leong Leong. It’s fabricated from a piece of solid gneiss and is paired with a perforated steel counterpart fabricated by Zahner.

WOJR “Other Masks” Exhibition Debuting on April 11
The more the merrier! Join Quarra Stone Company and WOJR in celebrating the debut of the Other Masks exhibition at the gallery BALTS Projects in Zurich, Switzerland. 6:00 pm.
The body of work shown in the exhibition, Other Masks, stems from an ongoing project entitled Mask House, which offers a grieving man a hidden space of refuge in the woods. Included in the exhibition is a range of artifacts that explore the periphery of architectural representation; while orthographic drawings and a scale model provide the work with an architectural center of gravity, pieces such as a stone bas-relief and seven sculptural masks engage the overlapping domain of art.
Other Masks situates the artifact of the mask within the context of the discipline of architecture. An artifact is an object of intrigue that elicits close readings and analyses, which in turn may reveal evidence of its culture and its use. A close reading of an artifact involves examination of all of its physical characteristics, including its figural, structural, material, and decorative features. This study is done not only with the aim of identifying the cultural significance of the particular object, but also with the broader aspiration of understanding the rituals and values of the users of the object, and those of its makers. The most curious of artifacts are those whose features invoke multiple, competing interpretations of their cultural significance.
For WOJR, the making of architecture is the making of artifacts. To think about the design of a work of architecture as such is to regard the acts of making form and reading form as simultaneous and inseparable. Being attuned to architecture in this particular way has lead to a practice that is invested deeply, if not wholly, in the agency of architectural form as the medium through which cultural commentary is conveyed.

QUARRA AND AUTODESK IN LAS VEGAS
The 2016 Autodesk University (AU) convention, held November 15–17 in Las Vegas, offered plenty of motivation for innovative professionals to use Autodesk’s data-driven technologies. These can enable design teams to operate at peak productivity, creativity, and efficiency and the greater AEC industry (architecture, engineering, and construction) to embrace novel disruptive ideas. One of the highlights of the convention was The Generative Design pavilion, a creative collaboration between Autodesk, Quarra Stone Company, Simpson Gumpertz & Heger, and the University of Michigan (photo by Nathan Miller).

THE MAKING OF PIETÀ BY MATTHEW DAY JACKSON
The sculpture was modeled full scale from a smartphone 3-D photo by the artist of a plaster cast of Michelangelo’s 15th century masterpiece in the Queens Museum. With the aid of robotics, Quarra carved a massive block of cement aggregate containing rubble, remnants and refuse collected around New York City. Pietà is a modern day fossil that exposes relationships between the abstraction of technology and the palpable effects of time.
