    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Ellen WONG & Peter ZAMBELLETTI: Situated along the Hudson River in Troy, New York, FLUX Amalgamation is a synthesis of a materials-research center and 100 units of mixed housing.

    Conflicting programs are mitigated through a performative facade that diffuses noise and air pollution from the research center as it rises up to the housing levels. FLUX Amalgamation aims to bring technological industry to a suffocating Troy landscape, once booming during the 19th-century industrial revolution.
