  • Fresh Punches
    louisville KENTUCKY

    When was the last time you got punched by design? Fresh Punches is an exhibition featuring the collision of experimentation and contemporary discourse in the work of American architecture students. Collected from the spring and fall semesters of 2011, the cutting-edge work exhibited features provocative explorations in technology, space, and materials. In this collection, architecture is contaminated by the likes of transmogrifications, strange sensations, primal textures, unfamiliar geometries, self-propagating architectural species, augmented atmospherics, vicissitudinous juxtapositions, reinvented building typologies, sensual pleated skins, a crisis or two, physiologically responsive interfaces, threshold blurring gizmos, and plenty of robots.

  • White Elephant (Privately Soft)
    chicago ILLINOIS

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    jimenez LAI: The White Elephant is roughly 10’x10’x10’. It has three basic premises:
    A building inside a building, somewhere between a super-furniture and a small house.
    An object that tumbles to attain multiple orientations to blur the qualification plans and sections.
    An object that is hard on the outside, soft on the inside.

    What is a building that can tumble freely without gravity or fixed orientations, hard on the outside but soft on the inside, and obstructs the continuity of interior spaces like an elephant in a room? This installation is a freestanding micro building / macro furniture that questions projection, inside/outside, rigidity/fluidity and size/scale.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    jordan HINES, ian MCHONE, kyle TIERNEY: The new HMPL 1 Hotel and Convention Center will provide a mutually beneficial public-private development for the city of Henderson,Ky through an economically viable, culturally and environmentally sensitive reuse of a former industrial complex.  This proposal not only provides a new regional attractor in Henderson, but also presents Henderson as a forwardly thinking, optimistic civic example for the region–particularly in terms of the adjustment of old industry to new uses, as this will be an increasingly pertinent issue globally in the years to come.

    louisville KENTUCKY

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    warren WEAVER/graham GORDON/ashley RYAN: This project is a 250′ cinema complex built for the city of Henderson, KY.  The amalgam of heavy field research, local and regional contextual consideration, and the desire to generate surreal social and visual atmospheres both within the cinema and within the city helped drive our design process.  The overall form is defined by strategic program massing wrapped in an indexical skin system.  The top of the tower holds one imax theater and two typical theaters and an observation platform, while the ground level is comprised of retail, park and performance space.
