    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Adam VUKMANOV: Slavija square, Belgrade (Serbia)—competition entry.

    According to the analysis done by local advert companies, there are around 1.2 million people circulating every day through Slavija Square and its roundabout. Public transport which includes buses, trolleybuses and trams is overlapped with dens traffic and the current situation, although positively dynamic, is creating a cataclysmic and rough space where pedestrians do not feel safe.

    josh TARON, adam ONULOV, & michael McGIE: In her essay, “The Natural in Architecture and Culture,” Elizabeth Grosz cites Plato’s chora as a “receptacle or nurse that brings matter into being, without being material; it nurtures the idea into material form, without being ideal.” The positioning of architecture as an indeterminate attendant[1] is a mode that had been addressed only a few years prior to the Blur Building in the Chora L Works.[2] This is not a point to be dismissed as the Blur Building should be understood as an achievement of architecture that for one reason or another could not be resolved previously between Eisenman and Derrida. Furthermore, it concurrently enables Architecture to operate without ideal meaning while opening up infinite possibilities for complex material affects.

  • Daegu Gosan Public Library
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Synthesis Design + Architecture (alvin HUANG): The proposal for the Daegu Gosan Public Library challenges the conventional understanding of the spatial and social experience of a public library as a series of discrete reading rooms with defined thresholds and cluttered stacks. We propose an intelligent, open, and integrated library experience which supersedes the media storage methods of the past and changes the library space into a hybrid environment through ubiquitous information resources, integrated furnishings and active communal social spaces.

    NYC CASINO/CONVENTION CENTER COMPETITION
    First place — $1200

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    alex LOZANO & reynolds DIAZ jr.: In recent years Manhattan’s lower West Side has undergone radical urban transformations. Perhaps the most influential addition to this part of the urban fabric has been the Highline Elevated Park; a melting pot of diverse activities. Thus extending this dynamic chamber of locals, artist, tourist and night-life enthusiast was an essential component to the proposal. Moreover, catalyzing these synergizes throughout the site emerge fields of landscape diversities. In this landscape, people can recreate, farm, lounge, gather or stroll for a casual walk.

    KyuYoung HUH & jj YEO:

    The Yards ///
    Manhattan’s West Side has a character all its own. In examining the Western edge condition, affinities with building typologies of particular scale and program began to emerge, where the city’s anomalies and irregularities convene. This is where the streets protrude as piers into the water, where several strip clubs have opened, where sports are played in multi-purpose parking lots, where the hulking mass of the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum is permanently docked.
