Architecture Matters / Design Forum: Negative Space
ARCHITECTURE MATTERS / Design Forum: Negative Space

Join hosts Saxon Sigerson, AIA Arturo Levenfeld, AIA and Kris Barkley, AIA for a casual evening of design presentations and discussion centered around three examples of negative space: The Piazza San Marco in Venice; the open plaza at the Salk Institute; and Pershing Square in Los Angeles. This topic is relevant as the City of Sacramento will soon be issuing an open design competition for re-creating the Capitol Mall. As the mall is perhaps the most prominent ânegativeâ space in Sacramento it is important to achieve success with whatever solution is finally implemented.

The eveningâs emphasis will be on the three spaces noted above with guest presenters introducing each project and then an open forum discussion of design as it relates to design solutions for disparate negative spaces. What does it take to activate an open space and is design a critical element? Do any of the presented spaces offer any insight or act as examples of what not to do?
