    Smita LUKOSE: The contextualism of a building in an urban environment gives it identity. Set in Downtown Los Angeles, this thesis takes cues from its surroundings, and turns it into another form.

  • FreelandBuck, "Vanishing Point." Model (nighttime).
    los angeles CALIFORNIA & brooklyn NEW YORK

    On an island full of rectangular buildings, the Flatiron Building’s knife-edge geometry, distorted by the acute angle of Broadway, has made it iconic. This distortion is rare in the city but common in images of the city; panoramas and wide-angle photos often make right angles look acute. The building is so impossibly thin that it resembles an image made real.

    Pratt Sessions 01.
    brooklyn NEW YORK

    The Pratt Sessions are a new format of lecture organized by the GAUD to encourage student participation in a discussion oriented format. Seen as a “distributed symposium” each session brings together two participants; one regionally based and one non-regionally based. Participants will frame their work (or a portion of it) around a disciplinary subject/provocation. . . . The first session brings together Meejin Yoon (Principal Höweler + Yoon Architecture [Boston] and Chair, MIT) and Marcelo Spina (Principal, Patterns and Instructor, SCI-Arc)

    This is a ghost Cultural Center proposal for the ghost city of Kilamba, Angola. Built by Chinese developers, occupied by families of the 220 units sold out of 2800*; a dream reality occurs. Surrounded by empty acres, a “furry” oasis ensues.
