    In the evolution of image culture from Marshall McLuhan’s claims of medium supplanting message to the mid-’90s paperless studios’ fetishization of computer rendering, the rise of suckerPUNCH has added a new visceral dimension. . . Projects published on suckerPUNCH . . . are elevated beyond the ordinary and contribute to a new kind of nuanced visual discourse uniquely enabled by the Web. The underlying visual logic of this discussion is the “field,” a now default technique for describing environment and indexing parametric process. Sensorial, geometric, and spatial, the field conveniently conflates the three into a rich digital milieu. . . .

    The “Possible Mediums” Conference, which took place at The Ohio State University Knowlton School of Architecture from February 07-10, 2013, brought together 18 designers, 120 students (from the four co-host schools: The Ohio State University Knowlton School of Architecture, University of Illinois at Chicago School of Architecture, University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture + Urban Planning and University of Kentucky College of Design), and special guests John McMorrough and Jeffrey Kipnis, to participate in design workshops and formal discussions surrounding the question of mediums in contemporary architecture.

    new york NEW YORK

    Site specific installation, Bridge Gallery (NYC)
    July 2012

    Inspired by Lebbeus Woods’s Slipstreaming drawings, the installation is made from over one thousand CNC cut plywood pieces that notch together to create an undulating, dynamically patterned and brightly colored wall. Developed as the extrusion of a 2-dimensional drawing through the gallery space, the structure is then cut away to produce a set of interconnected 3-dimensional spaces. The project develops novel forms of digital drawing, “egg-crate” type assemblies typical in stick built construction, and our ability to describe and produce the dynamics of flow and turbulence, phenomena that have fascinated artists at least since Leonardo Da Vinci.

  • Slipstream
    new york NEW YORK

    “At least since Leonardo Da Vinci’s first attempts to describe turbulence, architects have been fascinated by the dynamics of flow—perhaps seeking an escape from the solid, stable nature of buildings. Beginning in the 1990’s, architects have used digital software to imbue structures and spaces with some of the same qualities as Da Vinci’s meticulous drawings: fluidity, undulation, instability and temporality. But while software has allowed architects to create novel, dynamic forms digitally, they have struggled to translate these qualities to the physicality of the material world. Slipstream is a physical structure that confronts that leap directly, translating a 2-D digital line drawing into 3-D space.”

    Disaster Prevention Center
    Istanbul, TK, 2011

    Prompted by the expectation of a major earthquake in Turkey, the Istanbul Disaster Prevention and Information Center holds a series of disaster simulation galleries, from earthquakes to rainstorms to fires. The building is designed as a single structure that expresses the multiplicitous atmospheres and climates it contains.

    Unlike a science museum, where large open halls are sufficient to contain furniture-scale exhibits, the disaster center is a continuous network of distinct spaces. Each exhibit relies on a unique atmosphere and climate supported by its own structural, mechanical and electrical infrastructure.
