    Texas A&M University FabLab, Gabriel ESQUIVEL: The project began as a performative wall system that reacted differently to exterior and interior spaces. We realized we had to confront the fact we had two different surface logics, so rather than trying to blend these conditions, we decided to emphasize the difference indicating two current design directions. This resulted in two polar opposite geometries with opposite personalities that strongly defined exteriority and interiority.

We realized we had to confront the fact we had two different surface logics, so rather than trying to blend these conditions, we decided to emphasize the difference indicating two current design directions. This resulted in two polar opposite geometries with opposite personalities that strongly defined exteriority and interiority. Bi-Polar can then be explained more effectively in three systems working together: (1) The tessellated parametric logic performative exterior, (2) the loose free-flowing sensual interior, and (3) the in-between performative bladder system that mediates between the two extremes.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    adrian CORTEZ + alex HOLTZER: This design of an Alessi showroom and gallery in Houston is an argument of sensibility and surface, and is a modern interpretation of rustication. Individual modules emphasize a performative skin, and surface animation is achieved through deformation, dematerialization, and aperture. The project’s unique interior argues affect and sensation through its direct relationship with the skin.
