    LUNAR CRATER CULTURAL CENTER COMPETITION
    Third Place — $300

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project:

    amy DEDONATO: The Moon can be described as a ‘non-site’—a vacuous, untamed territory lacking limitation (gravity, vertical boundaries, atmosphere, temperature, edges, etc.) The project proposes a lunar city of culture that develops according to predetermined constraints. The outer wall of the urban complex serves as an infrastructural frame, one that maintains the cultural center’s artificial atmosphere, power supply, and transportation hubs. Growth of the cultural center develops inward along the infrastructural frame and its cross supply axes until its internal growth reaches maximum capacity.

    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    amy DEDONATO: The project proposes a contemporary art museum located next to Kahn’s renowned British Art Center at Yale University. Conceptually, the project is designed as a contemporary ‘wunderkammer’ – an open art warehouse that provokes curiosity and personal discovery of art objects within the building. An undulating ceiling coupled with a natural top lighting system begins to delineate space though structural densities, compressed zones, and fully enclosed spaces.

    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    miroslava BROOKS / amy DEDONATO / james GIRODAY: thermoCLOUDS was an experiment investigating the thermal dynamics of plastic. Through natural processes of heat and gravity, we were able to exploit the plastic’s inherent material logic and measure discrepancies through its limitations. Plastic panels were fabricated and painted for a specific aperture in the Yale Art and Architecture building. The points were performative, framing certain views and modulating light to produce an ambient effect on the interior of the hallway.
