suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
alan LU: This project explores the notion of programmatic extremism in a design incubator facility where a central defined figure that contains a vertically integrated manufacturing/workloft arrangement occupies the void and recoups the emptiness left by the existing ice storage facility. Such a figure inverts the typical relationship of a theater by converting the space usually dedicated to an event space into a piranesian conflation of design/production/manufacturing where in effect, these work processes become the spectacle themselves and the theater is one of production.
