Architecture and Arts are linked to deliver new style of constructive design encompassing structure as a canvas of space and form. The intelligence of architecture and art can lend knowledge on beauty, efficiency and function. The talk provided by “Eric Howeler, AIA, at Arts Center on Tuesday” “Architecture and Design Network lecture was sponsored by the University of Arkansas Fay Jones School of Architecture, the Central Arkansas Chapter of the american Institute of Architects and the Arts Center.”
Yesterday, Eric Howeler, an architect whose firm, Howeler and Yoon, in Boston is known for its “expanded practice,” will give a talk at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 12, titled “Fail Fast,” at the Arkansas Arts Center,” posts Arkansas Times.
The work to introduce the “10 Degree House” (see image) has a “single slope to accommodate one and two half floors: a partial walk out basement below, and an extra room over the garage above. The continuous roof line creates a dramatic interior volume for the living area, and accommodates the extra bedroom as a mezzanine. A study area/overlook connects the two spaces. Custom millwork extends the full height of the section emphasizing the high volume of space. The house is clad in a neutral grey cement board rain screen, allowing the rich colors of the interior finishes to add warmth.”
The work of creatives like Howeler, assistant professor at Harvard, said the title derives from “Launch early, fail fast, iterate” delivers opportunities to spark new construction of buildings. This home may not be to your taste or you may find elegant, the work integrates color, form and design as any artisan.
