'Dirk Denison 10 Houses' conversation & book launch at Artbook at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles

Saturday, March 2 from 4–6PM Artbook at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles and Actar, Barcelona/New York invite you to join Dirk Denison in conversation with Fred Bernstein for a book signing to celebrate the release of Dirk Denison 10 Houses. The conversation will be moderated by book designer Lorainne Wild from Green Dragon Office, who designed the book.
'Dirk Denison 10 Houses' conversation & book launch at Artbook at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles
Architect and educator Dirk Denison reflects on the diverse influences that have shaped his practice over 30 years in a volume featuring 10 remarkable houses designed in a broad range of modernist vocabularies—each finely tuned to its site and occupants.

Taking the form of an in-depth conversation between architect and educator Dirk Denison and journalist Fred A. Bernstein, this volume chronicles Denison's childhood in Detroit, travels and early encounters with the arts and architecture, and his education at Cranbrook, the Illinois Institute of Technology, and the Harvard Graduate School of Design. A perceptive interlocutor, Bernstein deftly draws upon Denison_s own insights into how these experiences have influenced his aesthetic sensibilities, design philosophy, and working processes over 30 years of collaborative practice. The conversation also sets the stage for the presentation of 10 houses selected from Denison's larger body of work, each illustrated in a suite of photographs with plans revealing his engagement with a diverse range of modernist vocabularies and intents in the domain of custom residential design. For design professionals and students of architecture, Dirk Denison 10 Houses draws attention to the manifold ways in which life experiences at all scales nurture and shape a career in the field. More broadly, this book is an engaging read for anyone interested in the gratifying process of conceptualizing and building one's own home.

Dirk Denison, FAIA is the Founding Principal of Dirk Denison Architects, a Professor at the College of Architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology, and Director of the Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize (MCHAP) at IIT. Since its founding in 1990, based in Chicago with an office in New York, Dirk Denison Architects has built a national practice with a reputation for design excellence through a wide range of building types and scales, specializing in Residential, Retail, Hospitality, Institutional and Commercial design. Dirk Denison Architects approaches each project as an ecological integration, bringing together the needs and desires of the client with the planning of space, the careful selection and use of materials and an energy-conscious focus. This approach to design is evident in the entirety of the project from the landscape, to the building envelope, to the interiors.

Fred Bernstein studied architecture at Princeton University and has written extensively about the subject. He has published several hundred articles in the New York Times, most of them on architecture or design, and hundreds more in other publications, including the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Architect, Architectural Record, Landscape Architecture, Architectural Digest, Blueprint and Metropolis. In 2008, he won the Oculus Award, bestowed by the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects for distinction in architecture writing.

Green Dragon Office of Los Angeles is dedicated (mostly) to the design of books on art, photography, architecture, and other cultural subjects. Started in 1996 as Lorraine Wild Design, and re-named Green Dragon Office in 2005, Green Dragon consistently works at an intimate scale to allow for direct collaborations with editors, curators, writers, artists, and publishers.
