    alberto FERNÁNDEZ ZEQUEIRA + francisco RODRÍGUEZ SUÁREZ: The concept for the project came from the park’s unique industrial past. Drawing inspiration from the original and forgotten railroad lines of the site, a new system of rails was designed for the project’s numerous stages and kiosks. This network provides for an infinite number of possible configurations depending on the size and type of venue while maintaining and enhancing the parks sense of open, natural and inclusive space. Maximum flexibility with minimal infrastructure. Innovation through historic interpretation.

  • western frieze
    bozeman MONTANA

    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    bryan SCHUTMAAT: For the past few years, I’ve been taking intermittent trips westward. I’m moved by the mountains, the open spaces, and all the other natural beauty the American West has to offer. But I’m also moved by the places in between—the old cafes, motels, gas stations, and so on. These days, both the wilderness and these small businesses seem to be in peril as developers move in and alter the physical and economic landscape. So, through photography I aim to preserve these aspects of the West that seem to be vanishing. From my trips, I developed this series, Western Frieze, which examines America’s cultural identity and how it relates to the landscape and whatever mystique the West has left.

    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    dave BANTZ: Guided by studio instructors Elena Manferdini, Marcelo Spina, and Tom Wiscombe, our studio was thrown into an intensive month long scripting workshop.  After our workshop, we were encouraged to extrapolate and build from our respectable bank of scripting experiments adding consideration for program, context, and performance.  A crisp, patterned, and prism-like exterior shell encases a sinuous structural and circulation network, which in turn, supports more focused plastic interior volumes.

Perforated, it works as a brise-soleil and filters natural light for exhibitions spaces. On grounds the same pattern is used but in relief, making surfaces non-slippery, especially on the walkable roof. The perforated material is also used in ceilings to hide artificial lighting and technical elements like air-conditioning and ventilation systems. The pixelated pattern is also used for signage in the entire museum.
