  • Hyper Ornamentation Series
    new york NEW YORK

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Johnny C. LIN: The series of projects presented here is the result of an on-going exploration of the transformative nature of surface quality. The work is inspired by the complexity, opulence and drama of Gothic cathedrals and Baroque architecture. The second influence is the industrial space. Factories are significant here because their existence primarily rooted in functional necessities and the requirements for mass production. The Industrial Era signified the shift of power in human consciousness from God as an omnipotent figure to that of men.

    new york NEW YORK

    World renowned architect Daniel Libeskind, a 1970 graduate of Cooper Union’s architecture program, speaks at his alma mater. The master planner for Ground Zero and the architect of one of Europe’s most visited museums, the Jewish Museum Berlin, explains the role that memory played in his work on those projects and others, including the Danish Jewish Museum, Manchester’s Imperial War Museum, and Dresden’s Military History Museum.

  • Serac Bench
    london UNITED KINGDOM

    Launched at Fuorisalone 2013, Officine della Torneria on April 11th, the design of the Serac Bench has evolved from the formal language of ice formations created within intersecting glacial crevasses.

    Developed as an urban sculpture for seating and resting, the striated articulation of the Serac Bench emerges seamlessly from the landscape, each layer taking its own unique trajectory in reaction to latent forces that disperse—and ultimately coalesce—the many strata of the bench.

  • Conflict of Interests
    new york NEW YORK

    This event will be the first in a series of symposia investigating the role of applied research in architecture. Nestled in an intersection between practice and theory, applied architectural research can potentially work as a space for overlap and negotiation. This event will formally make explicit the opportunities for architectural research to bridge the gap between the archive and the laboratory.

    “Apply: Conflict of Interests,” with 
David GISSEN, Thomas KEENAN, Janette KIM, Mpho MATSIPA, Sarah WHITING, Mabel WILSON, Kazys VARNELIS, & Mark WASIUTA

    houston TEXAS

    A shape, a volume, a color, a surface is something itself. It shouldn’t be concealed as part of a fairly different whole.
    —Donald Clarence Judd (1928–94)

    The collaboration between the Judd Foundation (Marfa, Texas) and the course is to further investigate, critically examine, and apply both theoretical study and practical design-research into the highly debated idea of “delegated fabrication,” within the context of design-fabrication, in the field of architectural design. It has been widely publicized that most of Judd’s work from 1964 onwards was delegated rather than fabricated by the artist himself. Rather than constructing his work personally, Judd had it industrially fabricated—a practice criticized at the time but emulated today by many contemporary artists.
