Ariane Lourie Harrison & Seth Harrison, Harrison Atelier, Species Niches


This past June, Brooklyn-based design firm, Harrison Atelier, created a pavilion that is an undulating canopy of networked spaces sited at the edge of the forest and field in Architecture Omi's rolling landscape. The pavilion's design draws inspiration from the structural logic of the "reciprocal frame:" no single hierarchy governs the network of the one thousand, local-sourced oak structural members; rather, the geometries of the design are interdependent and interwoven.


Species Niches opened in June with a site-specific performance choreographed by Silas Riener, performed by Riener, Rashaun Mitchell and Cori Kresge, and composed by Loren Dempster. A second performance in October was choreographed by James McGinn and composed by Loren Dempster.


Harrison Atelier was founded in 2009 by Seth Harrison, a writer, designer and biotechnologist, and Ariane Lourie Harrison, an architect and educator at the Yale School of Architecture. Past Harrison Atelier performance-installations include Anchises, at Pavilion Dance in Bournemouth, UK, Arnolfini Theater in Bristol, UK, and Abrons Arts Center in NYC, in 2010; Pharmacophore, at the Storefront for Art and Architecture in NYC in 2011; and Veal, at The Invisible Dog in Brooklyn in 2013.
