Month of Modern - Kick OffOpen in a New Window

Join us for an evening of fast-paced storytelling and inspiration, Pecha Kucha style, with host Jay Ferracane (owner of Angry Bovine Studio and founder of “Caffeinated Mornings,” a monthly creative speaking series). The presentations will center around the theme “Design that Delights” where an interdisciplinary panel of Boulder’s modern makers will explore how good design makes our lives better. We’ll span topics from what inspires, what motivates, and Vitruvius’s three part model of good design.

Vitruvius proposed the following three elements of design as a model for good design

  • Firmatis: It should stand up robustly and remain in good condition — be durable.
  • Utilitas: It should be useful and function well for the people using it — be functional.
  • Venustatis: It should delight people and raise their spirits — be beautiful.

The question on the table is: do these principles, meant to apply to physical architecture, apply to all disciplines? We believe that they do, and that applying them can help us all be better at what we do.

Month of Modern - Movie NightOpen in a New Window

What happens to a house designed by a Starchitect? How is it maintained, how does it age? What problems could there be? Could there be any problems?

Koolhaas HouseLife examines the daily life of one of the masterpieces of contemporary architecture of recent years: The House in Bordeaux, designed in 1998 by Rem Koolhaas/OMA. Unlike most movies about architecture, this feature focuses less on explaining the building and its virtuosity than on letting the viewer experience the daily intimacy of an architectural icon. The film lets the viewer enter into the house through the stories and daily chores of Guadalupe Acedo, the housekeeper, and the other people who look after the building. Pungent, funny and touching.

The screening is free and open to the public. 
Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. Movie will start at 6:30 pm.
This event is free, but registration is required. Please RSVP through the Month of Modern website HERE.

Month of Modern - Ventilated Facade SystemsOpen in a New Window

After seeing a few remarkable projects from Porcelanosa, we wanted to learn more about the materials that went into them. It turns out they all have one thing in common: exterior cladding. The “ventilated facade” system reduces energy costs by 30 percent, and while it’s widely used in Eurpoe and Asia, its use is fairly new to the US.

So what exactly is this ventilated facade used in all these projects?

Ventilated facade is a cladding system with an air cushion or cavity immediately behind which provides with a drainage, ventilation and thermal solution. This ventilation allows for an exchange of air between the outside and the cavity behind the cladding panels, providing the solution for venting any moisture away from the facade.

Not only is the treatment fire-resistant, but it’s eco-friendly, antibacterial, and it can be applied to large surfaces without joints—plus it’s easy on the eyes.

To learn more, Porcelanosa is offering a CEU course (AIA Credit: 1 LU/HSW ) on the cladding. Join us for lunch at Galvanize, Boulder!

At the end of the program, the participant will be able to:

1) Participants should be able to correctly define various types of exterior cladding systems.

2) Participants should be able to identify the major components/features of the ventilated facade system.

3) Participants will gain an understanding of the advantages of the ventilated facade when compared to other cladding systems.

4) Participants will gain an understanding of appropriate use of the ventilated facade system.
