  • Duygun INAL, Perfect Strangers. Physical model.
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    SCI-Arc
    critic: Andrew ZAGO with special advisor Jeffrey KIPNIS

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Duygun INAL: Recent architectural discourse has been offered a novel means to engage spatial relationships by the sectional object while keeping the sectional object as a pure interior condition in the equation. This thesis explores the shifting sense of identity through the incongruity between the body and the loose-fit by making the interior body directly a part of the exterior by creating a thickened contemporary couture for it.

    SCI-Arc (ESTm)
    critics: Peter TESTA with Brandon KRUYSMAN & Jonathan PROTO

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Brian HARMS with Haejun JUNG, Vince HUANG, & Yuying CHEN: This project aims to blur the line between processes of design and fabrication in the context of rapid prototyping by increasing the fluidity of the fabrication process through coordinated material and robotic processes. The project exploits feedback loops that allow the process to be used as a live generative form-finding tool as well as a method for reification of designed objects.

    In the evolution of image culture from Marshall McLuhan’s claims of medium supplanting message to the mid-’90s paperless studios’ fetishization of computer rendering, the rise of suckerPUNCH has added a new visceral dimension. . . Projects published on suckerPUNCH . . . are elevated beyond the ordinary and contribute to a new kind of nuanced visual discourse uniquely enabled by the Web. The underlying visual logic of this discussion is the “field,” a now default technique for describing environment and indexing parametric process. Sensorial, geometric, and spatial, the field conveniently conflates the three into a rich digital milieu. . . .

  • Florencia PITA/FPmod, Taichung City Cultural Center.
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    This proposal for the Taichung City Cultural Center is a singular, landmark building, which encompasses both the Taichung Public Library and the Taichung Fine Arts Museum. In response to Taichung City Government’s initiative to develop a notable entryway to Taichung Gateway Park, we propose a building that formally yields a “gateway” into the new park. Much like natural occurring openings between large rock formations, grand breezeways or tunnels are proposed to separate the two volumes of the library and museum. Through a series of studies and manipulations of historical archway precedents, a three-dimensional form of the tunnels was generated.

    davidclovers has designed a series of projects that tie together the common areas along the podium of the four towers at The Repulse Bay. The project includes the Outdoor Pool and Changing Rooms, Children’s Play Area, Entry Lobbies and Car park Lobbies. It builds upon the growing trend in Asian developments to produce spaces that are part recreation, part social condenser, and part infrastructure. The project seeks to diversify these otherwise separated spaces while at the same time unifying their sensibilities.

    School of Architecture, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki
    critics: Anastasios TELLIOS & Vasilis CHLOROKOSTAS

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Panagiota KOULALI: This work introduces an autopoietic system and its structure. An autopoietic system is a closed topological space that continuously generates and specifies its own organization through its operation as a system of production of its own components, and does this in an endless turnover of components.

    critic: Jason PAYNE

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Ryan L. HONG: This house, exteriority and interiority, conceived autonomously from one another, their relationship remains unclear. Their shared proximity to one another should not be mistaken with any assumptions of continuity, indexes and tectonic “responses.”
