Four SCI-Arc faculty members collaborated on a piece for The Architect and the Urn exhibition on view in Seattle through July 18. The exhibition called for architects "to approach the cremation urn as dwelling: the last, smallest house one will ever buy and inhabit." The group display features full-scale, functional urns, prototypes, renderings, technical drawings and other conceptual-based works.
Faculty members Ramiro Diaz-Granados of Amorphis, Heather Flood (M.Arch '04) of F-lab, and Eric Kahn and Russell Thomsen of IDEA Office, collaborated to produce a retroactive urn for Kurt Cobain. Their entry, "Death by Rock and Roll," explores the relationship between death and the genre of rock music, where the life of the artist is intimately bound together with the event of his death.
Curated by Greg Lundgren, The Architect and the Urn is on view at the Lundgren Monuments Gallery located at 1011 Boren Avenue, Seattle. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11am-6pm.
