  • Gradient Tower | The new Cooper Union School of the Advancement of Science and Art
    atlanta GEORGIA

    Georgia Institute of Technology, School of Architecture
    critic: Volkan ALKANOGLU

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Annie McCARTHY: The design of a new Cooper Union vertical campus challenges notions of extrusion of floor plates in the tower typology by thinking of both formal and programmatic organization as discrete chunks. How can Cooper Union situate itself in a vertical context, and how does that relate to formal chunking in a tower? In fact, it is in a similar way to how Cooper Union organizes itself in current lateral relationships in the Manhattan grid—on the cusp of two colliding grids.

  • Off With Their Heads! Decapitating Atlanta's Post-Modern Tops
    atlanta GEORGIA (the Dirty South)

    Georgia Institute of Technology School of Architecture
    critic: Jennifer BONNER (TVS Ventulett Critic)

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Jennifer LEWIS: “Off With Their Heads! Decapitating Atlanta’s Post-Modern Tops.” How can we imagine a new urbanism in Atlanta? Currently the skyline is dominated by exclusive post-modern capped skyscrapers with a failed aim to distinguish themselves and promote an identity for the city. “Off With Their Heads!” is a drastic snipping of the post-modern tops across the city beginning in Midtown. New nonexclusive public spaces will occupy the top floors and allow tourists and native Atlantans to regain control of the city’s skyline.

  • Bu-Hi Gift Shop: A Collection of Curious Propinquities
    atlanta GEORGIA

    Georgia Institute of Technology School of Architecture
    critic: Jennifer BONNER (TVS Ventulett Critic)

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Annie McCARTHY: “Bu-Hi Gift Shop: A Collection of Curious Propinquities.” Atlanta’s Neo-Suburban strip and cultural mecca, Buford Highway, serves as the inspiration and logic for the world’s largest gift shop. Buford Highway is a suburban palimpsest of burger joints and Chinese restaurants; fast food and Korean jewelry stores; single family homes and hotel staffing agencies. The patterns of use and culture are not at all homogeneous along this stretch of seven lane roadway, and it is the lack of similitude that defines curious propinquities. Propinquities are most distinctly manifested in the iconic strip mall.

  • World's First Scent Depot
    atlanta GEORGIA

    Georgia Institute of Technology School of Architecture
    critic: Jennifer BONNER (TVS Ventulett Critic)

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Cynthia OCAMPO SMITH: The premise of the studio is to catalogue and investigate Dirty South “icons” that will be used to compose an unconventional guidebook of Atlanta. These work samples are of the world’s first Scent Depot: a collection of Atlanta’s geography of smells. The collection is stored within a parasitic addition to the architecturally significant Marcel Breuer library located in downtown Atlanta.
