Brad Cloepfil / Allied Works Architecture: Case Work

Studies in Form, Space & Construction

Text by Brad Cloepfil, Dean Sobel.

Brad Cloepfil / Allied Works Architecture: Case WorkThis publication offers a new perspective on the work of Brad Cloepfil and Allied Works Architecture, recognized for designing buildings of enduring quality and cultural significance over the past 20 years. Published to accompany an exhibition opening at the Denver Art Museum in January 2016, the book offers an inside view into Allied Works' unique approach to design, a process driven by a rich material and physical investigation.
For Cloepfil and Allied Works, each project begins with the creation of hand drawings and concept models. These highly evocative artifacts--forged of diverse matter such as reclaimed timbers, porcelain, resin, glass, lead and steel--distill the essence of each project, and explore the dialogue among material, technique and intention that lies at the heart of architectural practice.
The book also documents Cloepfil's design for the installation: a series of custom-built cases, which open up to reveal a collection of artifacts inside, including models, drawings, photographs, pieces of materials and other objects that have provided conceptual inspiration. New essays by Brad Cloepfil and curator Dean Sobel place the work in context, and explore how this singular collection of artifacts reveals the process of creation in architecture--the act of translating ideas into built form.

Brad Cloepfil / Allied Works Architecture: Case Work

Brad Cloepfil / Allied Works Architecture: Case Work, National Music Centre of Canada

Brad Cloepfil and Allied Works Architecture's Case Works: Studies in Form, Space & Construction opens Sunday, January 24 at the Denver Art Museum, featuring 17 architectural models and more than 40 hand-worked drawings and collages that stand as artworks in and of themselves. Featured image is of Concept Model 01 for the National Music Centre of Canada, 2009. Only 7 x 6 x 4.5 inches in scale, it is made from modeling concrete and salvaged brass instruments. Dean Sobel, Director of the Allied Works-designed Clyfford Still Museum, considers the models' diminutive scale and level of craftsmanship. "Unlike presentation models, which often measure four to six feet in size, many of the objects in Case Works could fit into an average-sized purse. As a result, they are quiet, personal and human scaled." continue to blog

Brad Cloepfil / Allied Works Architecture: Case Work, Wisconsin Art Preserve

In Brad Cloepfil / Allied Works Architecture: Case Work, published by Metropolis Books on the occasion the firm's exhibition of architectural models and drawings opening Sunday at the Denver Art Museum, Cloepfil writes, "The objects are a material exploration, a search for evocation and provocation. The choice of material and process—fired, carved, laminated, welded or cast—is determined by the search for a project's particular potential. As objects, they are potent and expressive, with content that can be expanded by other disciplines and in multiple media. They occupy an unclaimed world of ideas, open to interpretation and development, and this is their fundamental importance for our work." Featured image is a concept model for the Wisconsin Art Preserve, 2010, made from wood, prismacolor pencils, plaster and porcelain. continue to blog
