  • F-Lab, Beinahe Alles.
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Heather FLOOD (principal, F-Lab): In 1951 Mies Van der Rohe completed the Lake Shore Drive Apartments in Chicago, Illinois. The slenderness of the structural frame afforded by the Chicago skeleton in combination with the transparency of the envelope afforded by the curtain wall allowed Mies to push architecture towards his ideal of “Beinahe Nichts” or “Almost Nothing.” This proposal seeks to re-frame the envelope of the tower typology toward an architecture of “Beinahe Alles” or “Almost Everything.” Instead of focusing on the singular objective of transparency, Beinahe Alles, proposes a thick skin that through excessive materialization produces a wide range of performance and atmospheric effects.

  • Wonder Wall
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    This project, Wonder Wall, is located at the intersection between architectural and graphic form. It explores the large-scale visual effects that can be produced when two-dimensional graphic patterns are translated into three-dimensional constructions. Specifically, Wonder Wall translates a swatch of tartan fabric into a gyrating wall made out of interlocked strips of perforated colored aluminum. The intersecting vertical and horizontal strips of aluminum gently twist to form a 9’x9’x1’-8” grid with multiple overlapping conditions. As the aluminum overlaps, new colors begin to emerge and a gradient field of porous openings rotates in relationship to the viewer. Wonder Wall slips between two and three dimensions into a space of 2.5D where visual effects emerge from the specificities of material construction.
