Former ballerina at the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, the choreographer Marilyn Wood was one of the pioneers in the research between dance and architecture. In 1972 she presented a show on the windows of the Seagram Building in New York as part of a series she’s called “Celebrations in City Places”. Forgotten today, the choreography used all the 44 floors of the Seagram’s iconic glazed facade, and had 35 dancers transforming the windows onto stage; the hall, the revolving doors, and the plaza of the building forming an essential part of the scenography. With the exception of the photo above, there is virtually no record of the event on the Internet, but the visual resemblance between it and some of Vazio S/A’s works is incredibly obvious, especially in the case of “Invisible Public Spaces” and “Spiral Booths“.
We were very happy to know that Gambiologia/Kludgeology, an exhibition designed by Vazio S/A, was awarded in the XVIII Prize organized by IAB – the Brazilian Institute of Architects!

“Misleadingly interlocked, ostensibly cantilevered and sumptuously textured” was how journalist John Bezold, from the prestigious Dutch magazine Mark (pictured) began his beautiful presentation of our Cerrado House. Another nice review of the same house, Eupalinos in the Cerrado, was written by Fernando Lara in AU #263, according to whom “Tudo convida a subir, a casa inteira existe nessa dicotomia entre o abrigo protegido abaixo e o desejo de ascensão ao cume da casa e do morro”.

The curator Eduardo de Jesus and Vazio S/A are producing a festival of architecture and urban art on the neighborhood Buritis, in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Called Other Territories, its goal is to discuss latent urban voids and to propose solutions for up to 20 “stilted” buildings. The 20 interventions will be simultaneous and the show is scheduled for July 2017. If you happen to live in a stilted building and are interested in participating, please contact us!
