Culture notes: Two architecture exhibits have designs on Atlanta viewers

ARCHITECTURE
Design, art on view

Two exhibits offering divergent takes on the art of architecture and architects are newly opened for viewing this weekend:

  • The Museum of Design Atlanta has just opened the “Emerging Voices 11” exhibit, honoring, according to the museum, “early-career individuals and firms with distinct ‘voices’ that demonstrate the potential to influence architecture and design within the Atlanta community.”

This year’s honorees are Perkins+Will urban designer Ryan Gravel, whose 1999 Georgia Tech master’s thesis seeded the idea of the Atlanta Beltline and who is now on the team designing the project; and Tristan Al-Haddad, a Georgia Tech School of Architecture assistant professor and founder of Formations Studio. Reception: 7-10 p.m. Friday. Through Jan. 22. 1315 Peachtree St., Atlanta. 404-979-6455, www.museumofdesign.org.

  • Al-Haddad is one of 27 architects exhibiting in “Architects as Artists” at the Swan Coach House Gallery. Curator Marianne Lambert said the architect-makers, who express themselves through paintings, drawings, sculpture and digital imagery, are “seeking to make a more subjective and passionate response to the everyday world of ideas and subject matter.”

Other well-known architects in the show include Oscar Harris, Amy Landesberg, Kemp Mooney, Mack Scogin and Tom Ventulett. Through Feb. 25. 3130 Slaton Drive N.W., 404-266-2636, www.swancoachhouse.com. HOWARD POUSNER
