suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
Jacqueline HO: Broad Museum Redux in L.A. Intricate figures pushing through elastic surfaces create razor-sharp edges and webbing. Tattoos track with, and sometimes diverge from morphology. Firmly sited but distinct from the ground, allowing movement into, under and around tattooed surfaces via a public plaza.
sP: What or who influenced this project?
JH: Two projects were influential: the Tokyo Opera House proposal by Jean Nouvel and Philippe Starck; and the Vitra Design Museum by Frank Gehry.
