  • Hannah PAVLOVICH, "Puzzling."
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    SCI-Arc
    advisor: Eric Owen MOSS

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Hannah PAVLOVICH: The title of my thesis is “Puzzling.” Puzzling as in making a puzzle, puzzling as in solving a puzzle, puzzling as in the act of thinking, and puzzling as in enigmatic. Through a process of obfuscation, I have created an organizational mechanism that organizes space unpredictably but not illegibly.

    critic: Hernan DIAZ ALONSO

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Stefano PASSERI: “Inside and Outside are inseparable, but they’re different worlds. Outside, everything is clear: comfortable distance, 45-degree daylight from top left, you know where you stand, you calculate and measure. . . .”

    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    SCI-Arc
    advisor: Elena MANFERDINI

    Describe your project:

    Marie-Sophie STARLINGER: The exploration of the relationship of inside to outside has been a constant in the discipline.

  • Emily CHEN CHOI, Deep Facade. Model.
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    SCI-Arc
    advisor: Florencia PITA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Emily CHEN CHOI: Deep Facade is a thesis that privileges the façade as an architectural element and pushes the façade to become the entire architectural experience. Traditionally, a façade operates as a two dimensional element that indexes the building and establishes boundary. It is the threshold that separates the interior from exterior, indicating a change in experience as one approaches and enters a building. By thickening the facade to an extreme, Deep Facade challenges this traditional notion of a thin surface facade, thereby prolonging the cadence of entering a building and blurring the distinction between interior and exterior.

  • Working Blue, SCI-Arc 2012 Graduate Thesis
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    SCI-Arc
    critics: Andrew ZAGO w/ guest advisor Jeffrey KIPNIS

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Dale STRONG: This thesis is investigating formal architectural conditions existing between abstraction and legibility in order to challenge notions of sobriety and solemnity within the discipline of architecture. The context of the site, located on the campus of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, is architecturally earnest with neighbors like Mies Van der Rohe’s Brown Pavilion and Raphael Moneo’s Audrey Jones Beck building. To counter the seriousness of the surrounding and help lighten the mood, this thesis will make a serious attempt to introduce comic and licentious characteristics to the new building.
