Book Launch & Reception: Portraits and Landscapes by Elena Manferdini

Book Launch & Reception: Elena Manferdini: Portraits and Landscapes


Kappe Library


March 09, 2020 at 7:00pm


This monograph collects the work created by Atelier Manferdini during the last six years of design activity. The projects are subdivided in two large families of explorations, Landscapes and Portraits. The titles of the two volumes allude to two distinct picture plane orientations: horizontal and vertical. These two orientations not only represent an act of vision by the author, they also orient the audience.


The two volumes, Portraits and Landscapes, divide the recent work of Atelier Manferdini, and address two distinct natures of the psyche of the image. While the Portraits volume collects what we traditionally refer to as abstract architectural drawings; the Landscapes volume collects projects that take as point of departure literal figurations.


This book is a collection of work that creatively reinvents our way of looking and being in the world. Published by Beijing University of Technology. Copies of the monograph will be for sale as well as the presence of the author.


Elena Manferdini, principal and owner of Atelier Manferdini, has over fifteen years of professional experience in architecture, art, design, and education. The office has completed projects in the US, Europe, and Asia. In 2019 Elena Manferdini received the 2019 ICON Award, which is a prize that recognizes iconic women who have made an indelible mark on Los Angeles, culture, and society in general through their work, character, and creative leadership. She is the Graduate Programs Chair at SCI-Arc.
