    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    tiffany DAHLEN and virginia MELNYK: The urban night club responds to the vibrant and eclectic youth culture of Harajuku and balances the high end fashion of Omontesando. The urban club consists of a large meet and greet entry area, sushi restaurant, sake bar, music lounge and two VIP lounges;  Pockets of unique intensities are held within a white framework, creating zones of spatiality, surficiality, and crenalation. Five distinct qualities corresponding to the specific programs and aesthetic desires, transform between the different spaces through the medium of the framework and are embedded within it. They differ from a sweet salivating sushi restaurant to a soft pillowy lounge space.

    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    alisa ANDRASEK: Cliff formations found along many coastlines (including Kaohsiung outer coastline) are resonated through strong vertical fissures of the building. Fractals are frequently used to calculate coastline behavior, given the different degree of “roughness” and multiple orders of scale found in natural coastlines. ||Fissures Port Terminal proposal reflects the idea of such complex articulation within the tectonics of the building.

    Critic: gabriel ESQUIVEL

    kuangyi TAO: The House of the Future is a project reacting to the problems emerging during modern times: overpopulation, resource shortage and virtual world development.

    Inspired by images of “body cells” depicted in the Matrix, I designed houses based on a similar system of energy and information exchange. The major difference is that people will be in control.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    kyle STOVER: This studio examined the relationship of types versus species. Where type is viewed as “categories of standardization, then species are malleable entities in constant metamorphosis.” The brief called for a house to inspeciate a site in three acts by employing a cellular spatial logic. My project technologically romanticizes the idea of the house to present a radically picturesque possibility of inhabitation.
