  • Tangible Projection
    lexington KENTUCKY

    University of Kentucky College of Design (UK/CoD)

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Chico NICHOLS: Tangible Projection combines a tangible field condition of translucent strings at a variety of densities with an intangible two dimensional projection. The combination of the strings and the projection allow for the projection, until now a two dimensional medium, to manifest itself in three dimensions. The different densities of the strings create high density areas that act as a screen to catch the projection and are placed in combination with low density areas that allow a person to occupy the space of the projection.

  • Gradient Tower | The new Cooper Union School of the Advancement of Science and Art
    atlanta GEORGIA

    Georgia Institute of Technology, School of Architecture
    critic: Volkan ALKANOGLU

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Annie McCARTHY: The design of a new Cooper Union vertical campus challenges notions of extrusion of floor plates in the tower typology by thinking of both formal and programmatic organization as discrete chunks. How can Cooper Union situate itself in a vertical context, and how does that relate to formal chunking in a tower? In fact, it is in a similar way to how Cooper Union organizes itself in current lateral relationships in the Manhattan grid—on the cusp of two colliding grids.

  •  Turning Heads - The Pictorial Figure
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    SCI-Arc
    critic: Florencia PITA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Kyle ONAGA: The figure in architecture is neglected and feared. This thesis embraces the figure.
    The exploration seeks an alternative starting point for architecture that does not originate from abstracted forms.
    Using a literal figure as massing, the head is taken as the architectural primitive.

    The figure in its nature, has apriori associations. In its reading, the figure creates an engagement.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Moritz KEITEL: The project einfamilienhaussiedlung questions how the individual rooms a house consists of, relate to each other and to the collective system of a colony. The distinct shapes of the houses are not predetermined fixed space-envelopes. But the result of an associative model of relationships existing between the rooms within each of the houses as well as between the different houses themselves. Although creating a group-form, the houses as such remain single and distinct entities.
