Architecture and Jewellery

This thesis finds that the disciplines of jewellery and architecture incorporate similar histories, theories and aesthetics during the modernist movement and that relationships with the human body are of profound importance in both.

This design thesis looks at connections between jewellery and architectural practices during the modernist movement in bohemian West Auckland in the 1950s. It culminates with the design of an artist-in-residence building on a steep slope in the Titirangi bush, a site surrounded by a rich modernist architectural heritage that was used to connect the disciplines of jewellery and architecture. The metaphor of the body as landscape and the brooch as dwelling underpins the thesis. Various aspects of jewellery and architecture disciplines were explored showing that both practices have links through the use of similar words and language. Both disciplines underwent a history of incorporating similar aesthetic aspects. The community in Titirangi in the 1950s included émigrés with modernist ideals that influenced the connection of these practices, both involving the human form and scale. This thesis finds that there were similar typographical relationships that relate to human skin and the landscape and similarities between tectonics, materials and design processes. Making-jewellery-as-research for the architectural design is discussed in two parts; the first informs the final design and the second focuses on making jewellery to convey architectural information about the building. This thesis finds that the disciplines of jewellery and architecture incorporate similar histories, theories and aesthetics during the modernist movement and that relationships with the human body are of profound importance in both.

The Handbook of Interior Architecture and Design offers a compelling collection of original essays that seek to examine the shifting role of interior architecture and interior design, and their importance and meaning within the contemporary world. Interior architecture and interior design are disciplines that span a complexity of ideas, ranging from human behaviour and anthropology to history and the technology of the future. Approaches to designing the interior are in a constant state of flux, reflecting and adapting to the changing systems of history, culture and politics. It is this process that allows interior design to be used as evidence for identifying patterns of consumption, gender, identity and social issues. The Handbook of Interior Architecture and Design provides a pioneering overview of the ideas and arrangements within the two disciplines that make them such important platforms from which to study the way humans interact with the space around them. Covering a wide range of thought and research, the book enables the reader to investigate fully the changing face of interior architecture and interior design, while offering questions about their future trajectory.

We had to start from ground one. We brought in electricity, we built other people's
houses.” The work of Buckminster Fuller was an important part of his thinking, the
way architecture could be made more organic, could relate better to people.

The Phenomenon of Studio Goldsmithing When the history of art in the 1980s is written, much of it will be etched in gold. This is the time of the contemporary goldsmith, an artist who chooses to work in precious metals rather than oils or marble. The contemporary jeweler-as-artist has only recently become a re cognized force. With rare exceptions, the whole field is little more than thirty years old. But it is only within the past fifteen years that these jewelers have entered the jewelry mainstream. The phenomenon of contemporary goldsmithing embraces an eclectic group of artists, each with a unique vision, each taking a per sonal path to jewelry producing. They have as little relationship to the typical, mass-produced jewelry as a champagne maker has to a bottler of orange soda. They approach a piece of art, not a piece of metal. The work is personal and a perfect expression of the "back to the land" movement that spawned it. Many of these goldsmiths were looking not merely for a way to make a living but for a way to make a life that was worthy of living. Running a business while trying to remain a creative metalsmith at the same time is the ongoing challenge. The jeweler-artists have solved or resolved these often conflicting needs in slightly different ways and in a beautiful variety of techniques and styles. Their meth ods, their growth, and their work are discussed here.

An illustrated survey of comtemporary jewellery and its developments since 1960. It has three major elements. Firstly, it has a display of the jewellery itself, photographed in colour. Secondly, it provides a critical history, tracing the first challenges to traditional forms of jewellery as early as the 1930s but focusing on the inspired use of new tools, new materials and new ideas since 1960. Finally, it has a reference section correcting previous information on the subject, including biographies of over a hundred makers.
