by Dar Williams; "When I started this blog in 2010, I went straight to Google with "human powered gym new york." Uh oh. Architectural renderings of a human-powered gym. Mitchell and Douglas Joachim designed River Gym, a fleet of buoyant, transparent, human-powered gym pods on the Hudson River. Don't get me wrong. I loved it."
In this cabaret:
DAVID BENJAMIN will telecommunicate, GAVIN BROWNING will tell a story, CRAIG BUCKLEY will surprise, MTWTF will publish, MICHELLE FORNABAI will paint, EVA FRANCH will emcee, LARISSA HARRIS & DAMON RICH will conspire, MITCHELL JOACHIM & IOANNA THEOCHAROPOULOU will narrate, JANETTE KIM will count, MITCH MCEWEN will rap, DANIEL PERLIN will make noise, SARAH WILLIAMS will visualize, MIMI ZEIGER will formulate, and MARK WIGLEY will wrap things up.
About the book: Studio-X New York is one node of a global network that includes like-minded event/work spaces in Beijing, Mumbai and Rio de Janeiro. But that wasn't always the case. In the beginning, this lone "pilot" Studio-X-unadvertised and largely invisible to the public, tucked away behind an unmarked door on the 16th floor of a nondescript office building in Lower Manhattan-needed an infrastructure, identity, audience, and a set of tools to make it work. These are the instructions.

Contemporary Digital Architecture: Design and Techniques, Dimitris Kottas
This book presents the latest developments in the field of architecture as it has been reshaped by the use of digital technologies. The last few years, technological developments in both hardware and software have enabled the realization of ideas that until now were only presented as theories, and have also opened new and unexpected areas of experimentation. The new digital technologies are influencing every stage of the creative process from the initial exploration of ideas to the construction of the final work and its interaction with the user. These developments are presented in four chapters, each one including detailed presentation of the most important relevant projects and general theoretical-technical information.
The Czech Center will prepare a series of exhibitions by contemporary Czech and international artists that will be presented on the windows of the building at 1109-1111 on Madison Avenue where the permanent mission of the Czech Republic to the UN in New York is located. The aim of the project is to address the broad public that walks by on this luxurious avenue and to use this space for a dialogue of artists with the public.
We hope that the WINDOWS ON MADISON will offer a space for contacts and exchanges between Czech and American art communities and become another attraction on the Museum Mile.
The first project poses the question “What is the future of the future? ” and confronts passersby with the statement “Yesterday we dreamt about the future, today the future dreams about us”.
The project originated in collaboration between the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art in Prague, which recently organized the exhibition The Future of the Future, and the New York group of architects, designers and scientists called Terreform One. Two windows on Madison Ave. display Terreform’s designs for future means of transportation in New York City and other big cities, such as the SOFT Jetpack and the SOFT Blimp Bumper Bus.
