  • James LENG, Air Ops: A Retroactive Platform for Energy Exchange.
    boston MASSACHUSETTS

    Harvard Graduate School of Design
    critic: Eric HOWELER
    2013 James Templeton Kelley Prize Winner

    James LENG: Air Ops is a project about re-envisioning zoning and energy-use in a post-Hurricane Sandy Manhattan. The core of the project hinges on the notion that zoning has always been one of the most potent elements in shaping the city, and in order for architecture to tackle the problem of energy at the urban scale, especially as a response to the increasing volatility of the climate, it must bring topics of sourcing and using energy into active dialogue with zoning, real estate, and the public realm.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Yaohua WANG: VFX is short for visual effects. VFX industry is in a stage of its middle-age. It is younger than the mature and defined financial industries but older than the pimply and adolescent .com startups. At the moment, the middle-age VFX industry, is facing transitions.

  • Point Cloud
    boston MASSACHUSETTS

    Harvard Graduate School of Design

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    James LENG: Point Cloud is an attempt to reimagine our daily interaction with weather data. Weather has always had a unique place in our lives, because it has a multiplicity that encompasses both the concrete and the indeterminate. It is the intangible context within which we build our lives and our cities, but it is also the physical element against which we create protective shelter. Most of the time it is an invisible network that we can see but are not aware of; yet it can manifest in a spectacle or disaster, come forward and activate our senses, make us forget our rationality in delight or fear.

  • Pierre Hermé, The Architecture of Taste. Photo: Jean Louis Bloch Lainé
    cambridge MASSACHUSETTS

    Pierre Hermé, widely considered as today’s foremost pastry chef, will expose three of his creations, retracing them from their original intuition to the elaboration of their flavors, textures, and formal manifestations, ultimately giving each its own character and ability to provide us with a new way of discovering the world.
 . . . His work demonstrates a rigor and sensibility that have created a new grammar whose richness is in line with the growing interest in cross-disciplinary thinking in design fields—laying foundations of what can be called the Architecture of Taste.

  • re[BLUR]2.0
    cambridge MASSACHUSETTS & los angeles CALIFORNIA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    qi SU & jili HUANG: [re]BLUR 2.0 could be interpreted in two different ways.

    Theoretically, it is an initiative to help people to identify and differentiate their physical presents from their digital lives. It is a device with which people could discover the occupancy of the cybernetic part in their mind. It is also an incubator that bring up the opportunities of encountering and contingency.
    Formally, it is a labyrinth built up with hundreds of the “water stalactites.” It is a container within which there are vague boundary between illusion and reality. It is also an experiment field where the refraction of lights is manipulated following the design of the continuous transparent surface.
