suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
yaohua WANG, scott CHUNG + brian FRAUMENI: the program is a subway terminal and park. this studio, a belated exercise in fleshlogy- “becoming-animal” is not about the mimetic career of biology into and onto architecture, but of the transference of multiple physiologic scales into the systemic intelligence of the involute surface-dwelling, and back again. the ocular nerve of the owl, the locomotion of the giant jellyfish, the pack logistics of the rat(s), the program of the frog, are not just forms, organic symmetries and baroque geometries. they are machines, they are solutions, partial grammars to take shape of us and we of them.
