The field of architecture is constantly challenged to meet the needs of an ever-evolving society. Architects are immersed in a technological revolution where digital tools, building materials, and design methodologies are rapidly expanding. As societal demands change and technology advances, we must also consider the effect of restricted urbanism on the field of architecture and the evolution of our social environments. . . .
Architect and designer Joseph Choma of Design Topology Lab, a research platform dedicated to the ontology of space defined by mathematics, is the recipient of the 2013 Emerging Voices citation from the AIA Atlanta. As part of the award, Joseph has created a solo-exhibition at the Barbara Archer Gallery in Atlanta, “Object to Atmosphere,” containing a body of work which lies at the intersection of perception and computation. Perceptually, the work investigates ideas of boundaries, thickness, texture, optical illusion and the transformation of an object state to that of an atmosphere.
Registration for “1X20: 20 design studies for an urban infill lot” ends tomorrow, July 24, 2012. To register, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name.
“The goal of this project is to explore the intrinsic differences between designers and how they approach creative challenges. We’re seeking 20 designers to collaborate with us to create designs for an urban lot in downtown Indianapolis. . . . It’s up to you what to propose—a house, a business, a tower, a park, an installation piece.”
