    bin LU: This thesis is a discipline research about painting. It investigates the architect and the painter, trying to figure out architecture out of painting. In architecture color has been used as a final application to geometry, a last layer on tectonics, used as a lighting device, media, bringing out qualities of materiality, ornamental and generally decorative.

    Using color from the beginning in a generative way, one can gain the freedom to design architectural functions as multiple conditions in space rather than limited to objects.

    keith STONE / ben MCCLURE / carolyn PARRISH: we have here a riverfront granary in henderson, ky., that has been reused as a recreation-fitness center, with the silos as structure for a canopy and their interiors for program. it includes: indoor and outdoor rock climbing walls and skateboarding facilities; a marina, restaurant and bar, and aviary (a nod to ornithologist john audubon’s storied research and enduring legacy in henderson). the overarching goal was to meld the landmark granary with a new profile that creates interstitial experiences above and below the canopy and along the waterfront. the canopy’s shape is informed by the site, the activities underneath, on top and inside (speed, strength, fitness), and the tempering effects of minimal and saddle surfaces.

    tin-shun BUT: The world’s urban population is growing exponentially. In 20 years according to the U.N Census, a shortage of land in fully developed coastal cities such as Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tokyo will reach into the afterlife. By 2030, “No Room for the Dead” will become a rising social, political and cultural issue in many urban cities. My vision is to create an alternative typology for the dead in order to accommodate this growth and to mitigate the negative effects of urbanization.

    john FARRACE: Los Angeles is a huge city that, because of its size and transportation infrastructure, allows for an unprecedented amount of diversity contained in a single city. The people of Los Angeles are connected through massive freeway systems that become extremely clogged and, as a result, the act of driving takes longer than it should. Because of this, driving becomes an introverted experience. We lose interest in the environment (specifically the built environment) around us because none of it engages us and/or pertains to us; we get preoccupied with the radio, our cell phone, shaving, reading the newspaper or whatever.
