    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    philip n. KNIGHT: The project is about the movement of components as they become integrated into the design of architecture through macro and micro gestures. The program is a botanical garden located in a barren dirt lot in the middle of the artist district of Los Angeles. The kinematics and structures on the verge of collapse were drivers in the beginning of the project, while building an Architecture of pieces became the interest. The intensive breakdown of massing becomes the interest in the spatial affects that become experienced in the drawings, images, and in the animation. The architecture is an interior and exterior experience with the spatial relationships being blurred through the macro and micro scale of pieces.

      This project is so rad, it is expands the definition of architecture and is something that is not like anything else! amazing

      This is pretty great. What an imagination you must have. I hope to see something like this get built one day.

      the choices of read/listen/watch seem to have deeply influenced this design; i am familiar with the references and can see them in here.
      the plan is particulary interesting, it almost looks as though it could unfurl and at any moment!

      unfurl and snap!
