The Future of the Central Schuylkill Riverfronts
James Templeton and George Claflen will discuss DAG’s new collaborative planning process for both banks of the central Schuylkill River. Working with volunteers, the Philadelphia City Planning Commission and a specialized consultant, DAG’s goal is to create a set of guidelines and/or zoning overlay document that could be adopted by the City.
 
DAG’s process includes initial data collection and analysis of existing master plans, proposals and potentially developable riverfront sites. Later, working with the City and stakeholders, a charrette process is envisioned.
 
James and George will also present earlier work referencing development along the Chicago River. 
James is co-chair of DAG’s Waterfronts Task Force, along with Nando Micale, and George is DAG’s co-vice chair.
The Design Advocacy Group (DAG) serves as a public forum and advocate for design quality in the planning, architecture and physical development of Philadelphia.

Air Forms: Kites as Adaptive Surfaces
This exhibit presents ongoing student projects from the IDEA (Interdisciplinary Design and Experimental Architecture) Studio of Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University). Founded with the support of a 2015 NCARB Award, IDEA Studio is an innovative interdisciplinary research and curricular initiative comprising the fields of architecture, textile design, and engineering. This year we focus on design explorations of ‘kites’, investigating the concepts of adaptive surfaces which propose an architecture that shifts from rigid to soft and dynamic structures and mechanisms. Wind is considered as a primary material in this research which will be harvested, manipulated, and controlled through the parameters of geometry, textiles, computational techniques, and fabrication, and tested through prototyping. The exhibit highlights student design research and mock-up models highlighting the potential of interdisciplinary approaches that merge hand- and digital-craft (simulations, physical computing, fabrication) and new materials and structures (atmospheric layers) into high-performance surfaces and envelopes.  Building on key concepts of the existing body of knowledge and the state-of-the-art, IDEA Studio aims to envision the future of architecture with novel materials strategies including textiles, fibers, and composites. Considering environmental concerns of energy efficiency, scarcity of natural resources, greenhouse gas, and recyclability of building systems, and human comfort and wellbeing, this research illustrates novel approaches to wind energy and material use. The discoveries and knowledge are aiming to advance design approaches in the disciplines of architecture, textile and engineering.

Beyond Sustainability
Experience #DesignForHumans with Humanscale and Kershner Office Furniture during an evening with John Strassner, Humanscale Director of Workplace Strategies, who will be discussing "Beyond Sustainability."
As the environmental movement continues to thrive, it is no longer good enough to do less harm or use less resources from the environment. Now is the time for designers to work towards creating a net positive future. Companies on the cutting-edge of the environmental movement are no longer just measuring their carbon footprint, but are actively engaged with clients and partners in measuring their handprint. The handprint measures not what has been damaged, but what has been given back to communities, employees and the environment as a whole.
Please join us for cocktails and light fare in addition to a compelling discussion around sustainable operations, healthy material selection, wildlife preservation and our commitment to having a net positive effect on our global community.
CEU credits available for IDCEC, AIA, and HSW.

Night of Lights
On Friday, October 5th, the Chestnut Hill Conservancy is presenting the second annual Night of Lights, an innovative public art exhibit that will transform Chestnut Hill’s commercial corridor into an interactive exhibit of local history and architecture. Many area shops and restaurants will be open late, inviting visitors to explore this shopping and dining destination as never before.
During this one evening, historical images and films from the Chestnut Hill Conservancy's Archives will be projected through storefront windows and onto exterior walls. Neighboring buildings along Germantown Avenue will be illuminated with theatrical lights, casting colors, patterns, and shadows to highlight their unique architectural features. These will be enhanced with interactive elements designed to immerse the visitor in the ongoing story of Chestnut Hill. Long-time business owners will become interpreters for the evening, sharing stories and engaging the community about their own history. Demonstrations by expert artisan stone masons, woodworkers, and metal smiths—many of them descendants of the artisans who built Chestnut Hill—will be featured alongside vintage cars, street musicians, and more. 
This street-long spectacular is organized in partnership with the Chestnut Hill Business District. A 7pm opening reception at the Water Tower (Ardleigh Street and Southampton Avenue) will kick off the event with a “Flip the Switch” ceremony to turn on the lights.

Horace Trumbauer Walking Tour
Horace Trumbauer was Philadelphia’s most prolific architect, whose work can be found across the United States. He is best known, perhaps, for his New York and Newport Gilded Age mansions. In Philadelphia, however, his firm also designed a large number of institutional buildings as well as private residences. Please join the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, Philadelphia and Jim Mundy, Director of Education and Programming for the Union League of Philadelphia, for a walking tour that explores Trumbauer-designed buildings that have housed Philadelphia’s premier cultural and social institutions over the past century.
The tour will begin at the Union League of Philadelphia, where we will learn about the exterior and interior spaces of this landmark institution. Our tour will then proceed through Center City to include such buildings as the Philadelphia Stock Exchange, the Racquet Club, the original Ritz Carlton hotel, the St. James apartment house, the Widener Building, the YMCA, the Free Library of Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and then through the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood to see examples of Trumbauer’s domestic architecture. The tour will end at Rittenhouse Square.
Jim Mundy is the Director of Education and Programming for the Foundations of the Union League of Philadelphia. He is an alumnus of The Attingham Summer School for the Study of British Houses and Collections and is presently the President of The Woodlands Cemetery Company and the Woodlands Trust for Historic Preservation. Jim has also given architecture tours for the Preservation Alliance.
The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA) is the leading nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the practice and appreciation of the classical tradition in architecture and the allied arts. We fulfill this mission through education, publications, awards, and advocacy, partnering with diverse organizations throughout the region.

For immediate release:
K gallery Art & Design present work by sculpture Nick Kacic -Miosic as part of the Philadelphia Design District’s Sensory Design exhibit @ Design Philadelphia.
A private Opening reception will be held Saturday, October 6th 6pm-9pm at 120n 3rd street Philadelphia PA/19106.
RSVP required: tommimischell@gmail.com
The exhibition will be curated by Tommi Mischell multidisciplinary artist, designer one of the founder of K Gallery Art & Design. The exhibit will feature Kacic-Miosic sculptures from the serial of sculptures “My beautiful Singer “ and “Blue whisper”.
Special event “Meet and greet with the artist “ will take place Saturday, October 12th from 6pm-9pm.
Nick Kacic- Miosic (1960) is a Croatian- American sculptor coming from 7 generations Croatian noble family Kacic- Miosic, dating from the 13th-century tradition of sculptors in stone media. His work is exquisite because of the juxtaposition of two elements, the train of thought in which his ideas arrive and reflect in his marble and limestone pieces that like liquid emotion stuck in every caving and craves completing an emotional impact emanating passion. In some ways, he had evolved on the longtime stagnant cubist style which has not been embellished on since the time of Archepinko, Henry – Laurens, Picasso. Nick studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art.
He holds an international recognition and had many exhibits in Philadelphia, New York, Paris, London Biennale, Strasbourg. Two of the Nicks sculptures are at permanent exhibition at Museum Sheik Al Zayed in the city of Kairo-Egypt. Nick artwork was reviewed by Neli Rakowsky (former lecturer at Museum St. Petersburg Moskva and lecturer at Metropolitan Museum New York ) and future in Art In America:”Nick Kacic is a hereditary sculptor, working straight in marble with no preliminary clay modeling or puncturing. He possesses a rather strong personality for not just guard ancient tradition at the time when in the art almost nothing left from it but strengthens it with an injection of the harsh attitude and sufficient deformation which leads away from just reproduction of the ancient harmony.”
It is a pleasure to announce that Nick's work will be featured at Salon de Automne -Paris in October 2018. www.nickkacicmiosic.com

AI for fashion: Data is the new black
Fashion designers and fashion houses usually start conceptualizing and designing products for the new season six months to one year prior to the actual selling season–though in recent times this has been drastically reduced with the emergence of fast-fashion retailers. That’s why for most apparel retailers, and the fashion industry in general, knowing the trends customers would like to wear next season is extremely important. This talk will describe how modern AI based tools  which can understand fashion images and articles can be used to provide a more data-driven approach for trend analysis and forecasting.  Dr. Raykar will also describe some of our recent collaborations with various fashion designers.

K gallery Art & Design present work by sculpture Nick Kacic -Miosic as part of the Philadelphia Design District’s Sensory Design exhibit @ Design Philadelphia.
A private Opening reception will be held Saturday, October 6th 6pm-9pm at 120n 3rd street Philadelphia PA/19106.
RSVP required: tommimischell@gmail.com
The exhibition will be curated by Tommi Mischell multidisciplinary artist, designer one of the founder of K Gallery Art & Design. The exhibit will feature Kacic-Miosic sculptures from the serial of sculptures “My beautiful Singer “ and “Blue whisper”.
Special event “Meet and greet with the artist “ will take place Saturday, October 12th from 6pm-9pm.
Nick Kacic- Miosic (1960) is a Croatian- American sculptor coming from 7 generations Croatian noble family Kacic- Miosic, dating from the 13th-century tradition of sculptors in stone media. His work is exquisite because of the juxtaposition of two elements, the train of thought in which his ideas arrive and reflect in his marble and limestone pieces that like liquid emotion stuck in every caving and craves completing an emotional impact emanating passion. In some ways, he had evolved on the longtime stagnant cubist style which has not been embellished on since the time of Archepinko, Henry – Laurens, Picasso. Nick studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art.
He holds an international recognition and had many exhibits in Philadelphia, New York, Paris, London Biennale, Strasbourg. Two of the Nicks sculptures are at permanent exhibition at Museum Sheik Al Zayed in the city of Kairo-Egypt. Nick artwork was reviewed by Neli Rakowsky (former lecturer at Museum St. Petersburg Moskva and lecturer at Metropolitan Museum New York ) and future in Art In America:”Nick Kacic is a hereditary sculptor, working straight in marble with no preliminary clay modeling or puncturing. He possesses a rather strong personality for not just guard ancient tradition at the time when in the art almost nothing left from it but strengthens it with an injection of the harsh attitude and sufficient deformation which leads away from just reproduction of the ancient harmony.”
