FreelandBuck is an architecture practice based in New York and Los Angeles formed in 2009.
lecture and workshop: Brennan BUCK & David FREELAND (FreelandBuck), “Trying to See What We Can Never Know.”
5.00 pm / Slocum Auditorium
Syracuse, NY 13244
Affiliated with Yale University and Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-ARC), the office focuses on the spatial, atmospheric and structural potential of computational pattern.
Their work on commercial interiors and speculative installations translates the digital space of software into physical, tectonic reality through the precision of pattern. At the scale of houses and larger institutional buildings, the office designs integral networks of distinct spaces, creating intimacy within larger buildings and institutions. At the scale of the city, FreelandBuck’s work focuses on the strategic reconfiguration of infrastructure, developing natural and urban systems supple enough to insinuate themselves into the existing geometry of the city.
David Freeland is a principal at FreelandBuck in Los Angeles and design faculty at Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc). From 2006-2012 he was on the faculty at Woodbury University where his courses focused on digital fabrication and computation. He has worked on with offices in New York and Los Angeles including Michael Maltzan Architecture and Eisenman Architects. He is a graduate of University of Virginia and the UCLA Department of Architecture and Urban Design.
