    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Jaclyn L. SPOKOJNY & John JOHNSTON: Framed in the context of the salt basin in Death Valley, California, and with a growth and decay timeline of nearly a century, durat-Ion+ represents the confluence of architecture and generative design with advanced construction and material technology. The evolution and setting of the project is critical to its form, structure, and multitude of textures. While salt is the primary building material, this project truly reveals its identity over the course of many years.

    nam il JOE, laura e. LO, & mark t. NICOL: Formative to our design intent is a desire to use the plastic particulates that are concentrated in the world’s ocean gyres as a productive building material. To do so we have looked to existing technologies to develop a system that would allow us to extract these plastics, reprocess them, and form them into strands. These strands could then be embedded with additional materials increasing their tensile strength and tendency to bundle together.

    youngbum KIM & sang-uk PARK: The title of our project is written in Icelandic, which means “Mud Flower” in English. Like a flower blooms in the mud, our pattern scaffold of the building appears in the extreme environment in Iceland. The enormous forces below the site has been expressed into a wide array of phenomena such as boiling mud pot, gas fumarole, and cracking of the ground.

  • Living Bridge
    philadelphia PENNSYLVANIA

    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    david EATON, geoffrey KLEIN & michael WETMORE: The objective in designing Living Bridge was to describe a new type of nonlinear architecture through the design of an inhabitable bridge in Tokyo. The chosen site integrates with the residential neighborhoods of Ginza and Tsukishima. Through the harnessing and intensification of the discrete flows of the two neighborhoods, and through algorithmic generation of turbulent spatial and programmatic structures, a reinvention of the inhabitable bridge type is achieved.
