suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
alex LOZANO: the project explores ideas of prosthetic architecture. prosthetics can be subdivided into two categories: 1) those that rehabilitate and 2) those that enhance. the idea of prosthesis sets up an interesting situation which questions the boundaries between existing private areas and adjacent proposed public programs. prosthetic architecture has the ability to “cut out” detrimental facades and compromised structure and replaces them with a new formal species which will set up a dialogue between old and new.
