Built City @MOV: Arbel & Karsh Discuss Structure and Form
These two designers will present how they design—the alchemy they perform with the dross of wood, glass, concrete, steel and wire. Architecture critic/curator Trevor Boddy will moderate the evening.
The globular clusters of Omer Arbel’s hand-blown glass light fixtures have received international design prizes. Some have previously been installed in the lobby of London’s Victoria and Albert Museum. A South Surrey house designed by Arbel won the inaugural NewCity Design Award in 2012. Erick Karsh is one of Canada’s leading innovators in engineered wood. His projects include the UBC Earth Sciences complex for Busby Perkins Will and, with Michael Green Architects, the Ronald McDonald House and North Vancouver City Hall.
