  • Fig. 1: Robin Evans, Projection and its Analogues: The Arrested Image.
    troy NEW YORK

    “Architects typically produce drawings and other artifacts—words, inscriptions, models, full-scale mock-ups, and so on—that allow buildings to be realized by others, at a distance from their authors. This has not always been the case. Gothic building, for example, was a constructive practice of geometric rules and traditions where master craftsmen operated to some extent as architect and builder simultaneously. In this situation, drawings were not the primary mediator between design and construction; discussions regarding the final form of a building continued throughout the construction process. . . .”

  • William Shakespeare: Twelfth night, or what you will
    berlin GERMANY

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    matthias KARCH: William Shakespeare: Twelfth night, or what you will—This realized scenography project focuses on the enormous transgender and metamorphotic energy of Shakespeare’s dramatic figures. His comedy ‘What you will’ is an obsessive game about changing identity, transforming the own body and gender. The protagonists dream to be indifferent in reference of their sexual orientation, they hanker for having all the options of an ‘early form,’ which than could be transformed in any direction. Going back their personal timeline to a ‘hermaphrodite status’ is a regressive utopia for them.

    Modern architecture and design were long viewed as separate disciplines until practitioners in the mid-20th century began crossing boundaries and rethinking form and function. This fluid exchange of ideas has led to innovative solutions addressing issues at the heart of contemporary life—ones that impact the environment, sustainability, technology, politics, personal well-being, and health and safety. The Art Institute of Chicago has now organized a major exhibition highlighting important recent developments that have resulted from the intersection of architecture and design.
