    Medium (Alfie KOETTER & Emmett ZEIFMAN)

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
    Alfie KOETTER & Emmett ZEIFMAN: This is an investigation of a precedent but perhaps more specifically it is an investigation of what we as architects mean when we use the term.

    Is it meant to convey that we have somehow uncovered the “essence” of a project? That we have somehow brought ourselves closer to it? Perhaps, but we would prefer not to engage with that definition.

    Instead, we use precedent a way to produce distance, as a way to overcome our own familiarity with a project, to read it in a way that is not necessarily “correct,” to find something new, and then to look back at the original that we were once so familiar with and see it again for the first time.

    sP: What or who influenced this project?
    AF & EZ: Mies van der Rohe & William Basinski.

    sP: What were you reading/listening to/watching while developing this project?
    AF & EZ: William Basinski: The Disintegration Loops.

    sP: Whose work is currently on your radar?:
    AF & EZ:
    Mies van der Rohe.
