    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    marco VANUCCI, adiam SERTZU / OPENSYSTEMS: The tower conveys the imaginative vision and the power of the dynamic world of fashion. Like a garment the tower is one which can potentially be interpreted and used for countless seasons and events. The intervention is an innovative one which embodies a lattice-like complexity. Its seamless skin stretches through the structure to create an intricate network of lattice like voids and spaces. These act as dynamic organizing spaces to house the main runway for fashion shows, event spaces and other creative zones for unexpectant members of the public who, coming to visit the museum become part of a daily event or of a show themselves.

    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    zhou FAN: A series of my paintings is based on dreams that I had as a child of many many jellyfish floating in the sky, some of which fell to the ground on parachures and became mushrooms. These dreams had a strong impact on me, and I remember them vividly. Somehow I feel that it is easier to focus on dreams than reality. In one particular painting, there is a boy crying because he keeps things within him, is easily sad, and he refuses to face reality.

    matias del CAMPO: Topology is the main driving force of the design of the Austrian pavilion, a major area of mathematics concerned with spatial properties that are preserved under continuous deformations of objects, for example deformations that involve stretching, but no tearing or gluing. It emerged through the development of concepts from geometry and set theory, such as space, dimension, and transformation.

    michael YOUNG : The current model of the city relies on antiquated power consumption and distribution methodologies creating a sea of energy waste.  In the age of “Green Architecture”, we are told to repress and reduce the appetite of the building in order to save ourselves, but what if that model is inverted?  By way of kinetics, human/animal waste, etc., can we create a building whose energy output is greater than its input, creating an excess to share and support its surroundings?  Our interest within the studio is to explore how architecture through an extreme formalism can attempt to address these problems. This work attempts to mediate the physiology’s between animal and machine as a true consumer/producer.
