    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Jaime RIVERA: This thesis investigates the relationship between color and form through the reconfiguration of voids and the shifting of volumes, where the misregistration of one creates an alternate reading of the other. . . .

  • The LADG, 48 Characters.
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    The LADG (Andrew HOLDER, Claus Benjamin FREYINGER, & James CHESTNUT): Consider, as a problem of material and form, a litter of piglets suckling at the teats of a plump sow. The language of formal analysis is not readily equipped to describe this situation. The disposition of one pig against another does not appear to be regulated by clear systems of repetition and adjacency. The pig bodies themselves resist decomposition as assemblages of skin and structure; they are too fat—all fat, in fact. What formal analysis struggles to rationalize, the languages of character and posture easily accommodate: the piglets nestle and suckle; the sow sprawls; obese bodies squeeze and abut one another.

  • Pier Vittorio AURELI, The Possibility of an Absolute Architecture.
    2011

    In The Possibility of an Absolute Architecture, Pier Vittorio Aureli proposes that a sharpened formal consciousness in architecture is a precondition for political, cultural, and social engagement with the city. Aureli uses the term absolute not in the conventional sense of “pure,” but to denote something that is resolutely itself after being separated from its other. In the pursuit of the possibility of an absolute architecture, the other is the space of the city, its extensive organization, and its government. Politics is agonism through separation and confrontation; the very condition of architectural form is to separate and be separated. . . .

  • Greg LYNN & Mark RAPPOLT, eds., Greg Lynn Form.
    2008

    One of the most provocative and exciting architects today, Greg Lynn has defined how designers and architects use computers as a medium, operating in an expanded field that fuses cutting-edge technology, contemporary art, and science fiction aesthetics with architectural form. At the epicenter of a debate about the role of digital design in architecture and design, his projects skillfully blend high technology and detailed craftsmanship, driven by modeling software from the film and aerospace industries. Included are contributions from theorists, architects, and artists, and futurists such as J. G. Ballard and Bruce Sterling.

    chicago ILLINOIS

    As children, we make things for ourselves: houses from cardboard boxes, tents from blankets, even paper wings to fly from the dining room table. As adults, we make less things. And while we grown-ups labor through subtext and buried complexity, children are quick to invent it; always toying with absurdity in the hopes of finding novelty. . . .
