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)

Andrew HOLDER, curator, "The Kid Gets out of the Picture."
cambridge MASSACHUSETTS

The vocabulary of early nineteenth-century picturesque landscape architecture is almost entirely alien to contemporary ears. Clumps, lumps, masses, groups, belts, hollows – these are a few of a vast catalog of objects that once belonged to design and have long since been absorbed into colloquial ubiquity. While the disciplinary meaning of these terms requires historical recovery, the project around which they were organized is entirely familiar.

My project examines the issue of nostalgia and preservation historical architectural identity in a modernizing city.
