    jessica DOVLETIAN & wenny HSU: Manifold Masses: Kaohsiung Port Terminal, Taiwan. This project investigates formal internal orders of architecture, specifically saddle polyhedral and their potential for generating intensive massing and figural interstices. We were interested in a rigorous and playful examination of these systems and their capacity to generate new forms and spatial expressions that are themselves embedded within a deep underlying order.

  • PUCPR Student Dormitory
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S: This building is a proposal for a 120-bed student dormitory for the Pontificia Catholic University of Puerto Rico in Ponce, the second largest city of the island and the old capital before San Juan. As part of a larger master plan aiming to attract students from the whole Caribbean region and fulfill the current demand of 500 apartments, the proposal aims to create a new presence within the campus. Articulating a vertical mass with a figural void that encapsulates the main social areas of the program, our proposal aims to induce human interaction among students and visitors in a vertical environment while enhancing unprecedented urban vistas from and to the historic center of the city just beyond the university campus.

  • discussion: EMBEDDED
    culver city CALIFORNIA

    The LA Forum will host an event marking the publication of P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S’s new book, EMBEDDED, bringing together authors, contributors, mentors and confabulators to discuss some of the most relevant issues haunting contemporary architectural practice and discourse today, such as the perceived divide between progressive design culture, the politics of form and social responsibility. EMBEDDED is P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S’s long awaited book that reflects on the evolution, actualization and conclusion of certain lineages of design and material research, while signaling the initial stages of others.
