by Canadian Architect
The Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal has welcomed Geoff Manaugh as a resident of the CCA’s Study Centre for two months. He is the well-known architectural blogger of the hugely popular BLDGBLOG and author of the BLDGBLOG book. As a resident of the Study Centre, he will explore the archives, the collections, programs and events to post a regular stream of new content specifically for the CCA website.
Manaugh’s collaboration with the CCA until July 31, 2010, will add a certain character, perspective, and pitch to the CCA’s content, as he has agreed to co-publish and link CCA content with his own BLDGBLOG site. On the website itself, Manaugh will live within a series called “To CCA, From…” – a series in the Study Centre that the CCA is creating for critics and thinkers.
Manaugh is a former senior editor of Dwell magazine, an contributing editor at Wired UK. In addition to lecturing on a broad range of architectural topics at design schools and museums around the world – from Turin to Melbourne – he has taught design studios as Columbia University, the Pratt Institute, and the University of Technology, Sydney. Manaugh has organized events at Storefront for Art and Architecture, the Architectural Association, the Chicago Humanities Festival, the California College of the Arts, and many more, and he continues to write freelance articles for publications such as GOOD, Icon, Volume, Domus, and many websites. In spring 2010, with Nicola Twilley, he co-curated the exhibition Landscapes of Quarantine, an ARTFORUM Editor’s Pick, at Storefront for Art and Architecture. He is curating the exhibition Landscape Futures at the Nevada Museum of Art, which will open in autumn 2011.
