Perhaps the most influential addition to this part of the urban fabric has been the Highline Elevated Park; a melting pot of diverse activities. Thus extending this dynamic chamber of locals, artist, tourist and night-life enthusiast was an essential component to the proposal. Moreover, catalyzing these synergizes throughout the site emerge fields of landscape diversities. In this landscape, people can recreate, farm, lounge, gather or stroll for a casual walk.

    KyuYoung HUH & jj YEO:

    The Yards ///
    Manhattan’s West Side has a character all its own. In examining the Western edge condition, affinities with building typologies of particular scale and program began to emerge, where the city’s anomalies and irregularities convene. This is where the streets protrude as piers into the water, where several strip clubs have opened, where sports are played in multi-purpose parking lots, where the hulking mass of the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum is permanently docked.

  • Fresh Punches
    louisville KENTUCKY

    When was the last time you got punched by design? Fresh Punches is an exhibition featuring the collision of experimentation and contemporary discourse in the work of American architecture students. Collected from the spring and fall semesters of 2011, the cutting-edge work exhibited features provocative explorations in technology, space, and materials. In this collection, architecture is contaminated by the likes of transmogrifications, strange sensations, primal textures, unfamiliar geometries, self-propagating architectural species, augmented atmospherics, vicissitudinous juxtapositions, reinvented building typologies, sensual pleated skins, a crisis or two, physiologically responsive interfaces, threshold blurring gizmos, and plenty of robots.

    emanuel ADMASSU, DeMar JONES, & gary McGAHA: New York City’s transient nature makes it a territory of infinite complexities. But the definitive layout constraints of the grid, provide opportunities for horizontal and vertical expansion. The generic grid is reinterpreted as a platform to be appropriated according to the diverse needs of its inhabitants. In order to maximize the potential for change, the structure adapts itself to multiple possibilities.
