FSU architecture and interior design students Hannah Smith, Alana Houston and Sarah Rifqi.

Three Florida State University Department of Interior Architecture and Design graduate students were selected as winners of the Goodwood Museum & Gardens Memorial to the Enslaved Competition.

Students Hannah Smith, Alana Houston and Sarah Rifqi, who were mentored by Assistant Professor Meghan Mick, received $1,000 for their winning design of ‘A Bridge to the Stars’.

Once built, it will serve as a memorial to those who were enslaved on Tallahassee property between 1832 and 1865 and serve as a place to honor the past, heal in the present, and encourage social justice in the future.

“This design offers the potential and powerful means to recall and honor memories through its use of space, water, light and text,” said Jill Pable, Chair of the Department of Architecture and of FSU interior design. “Each of these elements serve to celebrate and pay homage to slave life and encourage visitors to engage in meaningful dialogue.”

Goodwood works with design students, local artists and fabricators to determine the construction schedule and costs.

“This collaborative design is the cornerstone of several years of planning by a diverse group of stakeholders, including a descendant of one of Goodwood’s enslaved workers, scholars, historians, researchers and artists,” Humayun said. “We are committed to sharing an honest and inclusive story with the public and this is another way of doing it.”

Now known as the Goodwood Museum & Gardens, the old plantation was located between the Ochlockonee and Aucilla rivers and was one of many in Florida to benefit from slave labor.

“The lives of slaves were rarely documented, but Goodwood painstakingly combed through historical records and archival sources to learn the names and histories of as many of them as possible,” said Jennifer Humayun, executive director of the Goodwood Museum and Gardens. “The design of this memorial serves as a place where people come together to learn, commemorate the lives of slaves and honor them as the individuals they were.”

According to Humayun, despite many efforts, the exact location of the slave quarters and graves is unknown. The competition is an ongoing effort to preserve this history.

“After walking through the Goodwood property and acknowledging the treatment the slaves endured, I was encouraged to accept their hidden identities and struggles that were underplayed in the design of the memorial,” Rifqi said. “I really hope our design helps to appreciate these people and give something back to the Tallahassee community.”

The students’ proposal is a multi-faceted design that will feature a bridge with beams to symbolize the strength that slaves embodied as they bore the brunt of being forced to work in bondage. The design concept envisions visitors crossing a low bridge, reading the names of slaves. In the evening, lights will illuminate the space. Reminiscent of stars, the lights represent a life of freedom that slaves could not live.

“Alana, Sarah and Hannah really took on this design challenge and came up with a unique and thoughtful solution – one that is rooted in the stories of the slave experiences at Goodwood,” Mick said. “In addition to highlighting documented history, their design invites visitors to engage more, change their perspective and hopefully see these people in a different light.” It’s a powerful message, and I’m glad it’s on the Goodwood pitch.

To honor the winners, entrants and supporters of the Memorial to Enslaved design competition, Goodwood will host a public reception from 5:30-6:30 p.m. on March 30.

SAUCED Night Market offers quite the shopping experience, bringing together a hand-picked collection of up-and-coming Chicago chefs, artists and makers – think about shopping for handmade goods, jewelry, apparel, clothes and printed with a drink in hand, a DJ on the decks and a late-night bite (from gourmet dishes and boozy cupcakes to street food and ice cream). “The Night Markets’ mission has always been to bring together the city’s most promising creative minds and put them in the spotlight,” says co-founder Sarah Freeman, who sees the market as a vehicle for exciting cultural experiences. “I have been overwhelmed by the amount of new talent the pandemic has brought to light. It has made the past difficult years feel like hibernation rather than a waste of time. Last year, says- she, “SAUCED received over 150 new vendor applications, welcoming dozens of local vendors to their first markets. Fingers crossed this year, SAUCED will host four full-scale markets, including one at a new venue opening this summer.” “, she says. “I hope that 2022 will bring even more opportunities for cultural exchange – because people feel more comfortable taking part – and that the artists and small businesses that have started during the pandemic will finally be able to shine.”

“I hope the future becomes even more local and Chicago-centric and continues to blend the boundaries between fine art, design, crafts and artifacts. This city has such an incredible history – from the Imagists of Chicago has a rich, intuitive art scene – something I hope Buddy will support,” says Stella Brown, who is behind the Chicago Cultural Center’s new art and design boutique. Institute and the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE), this initiative provides visibility and opportunities for artists and small makers in the Chicago area – a place to showcase and sell their products and artwork to a huge audience of locals and visitors alike.” Buddy has only been open for six months, so I plan to work to make the store a home for design in every sense of the word with new new artists and products, as well as shows and pop-ups highlighting specific artists,” says Brown. , mentioning Envision Unlimited artists’ shag rugs, a custom piñata show, and a Midwestern boutique in October during the new iteration of the MDW Art Fair organization. “We also have several artist product collaborations coming out this year under the Buddy MFG name,” she adds. Their mission? For Buddy to become a place that introduces the world to the people who do in Chicago, a place that helps them create a sustainable world that we all want to work, play and live in.

Founder/Creative Director, Asrai Garden
“I think Chicago design will always be based on a real Midwestern mentality,” says Elizabeth Cronin. “The design landscape here remains more authentic and humble than in other major cities.” She hopes that “it leads those of us with privilege and a dedicated following to continue to share our resources, time and spotlight with others, especially saving space and helping propel queer designers.” , trans, non-binary, black and people of color. .” More than a destination for otherworldly floral arrangements, fine jewelry, and magical curiosities, the Garden of Asrai is all about building community. “We are working to create a foundation that will provide resources and support to promising black florists,” says Cronin. Also a host and judge of the HBO Max “Full Bloom” florist contest, she offered a small but mighty gesture: Do you have in mind a Chicago-based black organizer, activist or essential worker who has worked tirelessly in and for their community? You can nominate them for a chance to receive a Free Gratitude Bouquet.

Owner, Orange Skin and Okpara House
“Meaningful change can be slow to implement,” says Obi Nwazota. He founded Orange Skin, a leading contemporary furniture retailer in Chicago more than two decades ago, to enrich physical, cultural, emotional and spiritual life through good design. But “2022 will see the germination of ideas that will mark our journey towards better representing the rich treasures of diversity and inclusion that have so far been locked away and denied.” Constantly evolving, Nwazota works on Okpara House: “It’s a cultural platform inspired by my roots, the Igbo culture”, he says, describing it as a large project that involves editing, design, dialogue, performance and exhibition space. “We are inspired by a time when we black Africans controlled our lives materially and spiritually. Okpara House reinvents, reclaims and affirms Igbo cultural assets as an essential and relevant part of contemporary black lifestyles. Chicago is a melting pot of cultures. It’s a contribution from my community in Chicago and, by extension, America.

Mae Tavern, SoFi Stadium Pro Shop and Madhouse Teamstore, Whole Foods and Lululemon. “We design without using a computer,” says founder and president James Geier. “We have to think about all the elements and how each affects the space and the person using it. With this old-school approach, we are able to solve many of the challenges that are part of the process and are better able to assess the importance of each decision before the final drawing process. Never standing still, Geier has some exciting plans to share: “I developed a master’s program in entrepreneurial hospitality with Tulane University’s Freeman Business School; Northwestern University Block Museum Advisory Board; a new restaurant, Marvin’s Food & Fuel, opened during the pandemic in my building and at my location in the Fulton Market District; and a new immersive traveling art and large-scale sculpture experience I’m planning, TRANSFIX. Our vision is to create a walking maze out of shipping containers that will showcase installation art, often illuminated in some way – think Burning Man meets Cirque du Soleil.

The founders describe it as both an evolution and an extension of a community of artisans who seek to create in a space where art meets collectible design. Dividing their time between Refractory and sister company West Supply (think heirloom-quality metal and cast glass crafts), the duo look to the future: enjoying a rebirth,” they say. “The Midwest is a hub for this new momentum in domestic manufacturing, and we believe Chicago will grow to meet this new peak in demand while leveraging its manufacturing power. Many companies have also looked within during the pandemic and emerged with more innovation, new ideas and new insights. It will be exciting to see how that pans out for Chicago this year and beyond.

This week’s RSCO (Recognized Student Club or Organization) feature is the Interior Design and Architecture Club. This club is an interesting and thriving organization here in Mercyhurst. The purpose of the club is to provide a space for interior design students to come together and develop their personal and professional relationships throughout their time at Mercyhurst.

“The Interior Design and Architecture Club provides an incredible opportunity to learn more about the interior design industry and network with interior design professionals. Participation in activities and clubs outside of regular classes is extremely valuable in helping students grow into more confident individuals and reflects well on a resume,” said club advisor Kelly JK Spewock, professor of interior architecture design.

The interior design and architecture club usually schedules its meetings around the holidays to make them fun and festive. For the 21-22 school year, the club met three times where members participated in activities such as social media campaigns, informational professional development discussions and pumpkin painting. The club also held its first “Zoom with Us” series of talks with guest speaker Kimberly Woods, Director of Engagement at CIDQ. She spoke to members of the Interior Design and Architecture Club about the National Interior Design Council qualifying tests that interior design architecture students can take after graduation to obtain the interior designer certification in all states. Members of this club have the opportunity to gather an abundant amount of valuable information that will help them in their career development, such as learning from the American Society of Interior Design and the International Interior Design Association.

This club focuses on professional development and preparation for a future career in interior design architecture to ensure success. Along with all the wonderful attributes of the club, the club has planned their most exciting event of the school year – a trip to Falling Water on April 22. The club has been working diligently on a fundraising campaign to help support the students going on the trip. In addition to this incredible event, there is another “Zoom with Us” scheduled for early April. Another major advantage this club offers is a tight-knit community. “I think the club is unique just because it’s so small, we all know each other pretty well, and I think that creates an interesting group dynamic,” Club President Interior Design and Architecture Gabrielle Rohauer, junior Interior Design and Architecture Major and Minor in Psychology said.

Moreover, the club is successful because it is led by a large group of officers who devote a lot of energy to ensure the success of the club. The leaders really take the time to make sure the activities are both fun and useful, and make sure that all students feel welcome in the club. Rohauer encourages students to join this club, or any RSCO, that interests them to get the most out of their time at Hurst and get the most out of their college experience. “I know four years seems like a long time, but your college years go by quickly. It’s important to get involved, meet people and have experiences while you can. I encourage all students to get involved in clubs. I promise you won’t regret it and it will be more beneficial than you think,” Rohauer said.

So, if you haven’t joined this club yet, what are you waiting for? Be sure to check out the interior design/architecture club! Students interested in joining can contact Rohauer or Spewock for more information.

After years of working in the interior design industry, two things have become clear to Diana Adams. The first was that, just like the interior designers themselves, the decor and furniture makers were also artists. The second was that a lot of materials are often wasted while running a project. “We don’t teach you at school that you can make a business out of art,” she says. Home business.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Adams has always considered herself an artist. “I’ve been drawing since elementary school,” she says. “However, once in college, I felt I had to choose a degree that would allow me to earn a living.”

For Adams, that meant majoring in biology at California State University, Dominguez Hills before choosing to follow his heart. “I remember walking to my car after class and walking past the art department. I wanted to be there so badly,” she said. “So I said ‘fuck you’ and signed up for painting and ceramics classes. The first time I touched clay, something clicked. I bought a wheel and started practicing pottery at home.

But his vocation had still not yet penetrated. After graduating, Adams took a day job at Apple which left her creatively unfulfilled. So she decided to pursue a master’s degree in interior architecture offered in collaboration between UCLA Extension and California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. Education led to a full-time gig with the designer Michael Smith. “I was immersed in the materials – fabrics, stones and woods – and I started to see the artistic value of the decor,” she says. “Then it finally hit me: this is how you make a living doing art.”

In 2019, she opened SampleHaus, the Hawthorne, Calif.-based studio where she recycles discarded samples and samples from showrooms into heirloom-worthy collages. “I started contacting local suppliers to collect their discarded materials,” she explains. “Then I turned them into works of art that I sold at various pop-up stores in the area.”

Once she started selling collages, Adams decided to turn her attention to pottery again. She enrolled in a ceramics class at a local studio to hone her skills and fell head over heels in love with age-old tribal designs. “I love how different brands of pottery symbolize different cultures,” she says. “There is a universal language of pottery that is conveyed through distinct engravings.”

Specifically, she was seduced by African Zulu pottery, marked by bold geometric lines and vibrant enamel finishes, and began to incorporate the designs into her own handmade ceramic creations. “I made lidded jars with markings mimicking those found on traditional tribal shields,” she explains. “And where appropriate, also incorporating salvaged fabric into the designs.”

When the pandemic hit, Adams says demand for her colorful ceramic confections skyrocketed. “Suddenly people started asking for planters, mugs and other functional household items,” she says. “So I focused on pottery and developing my Zulu collection.”

Adams describes his process as intuitive, with no concrete sketches to guide behind the wheel, just his memory. “I throw things on the wheel by heart,” she says. “I take measurements to make them consistent in size, then cut, sculpt and underglaze them before they go into the kiln for the first firing.”

His signature palette for the Zulu series consists of yellow, black, and white finishes, with each respective glaze corresponding to a specific pattern. “My family members often help me paint, so it feels like a collaborative process,” she says.

Looking ahead, Adams plans to expand its popular Zulu line with new colorways, as well as lighting and tableware designs. She also hopes to release a new crop of collages, made up, of course, of materials once destined for the trash. “I want to keep making art that speaks to people,” she says, “but also does my soul good.”
