  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Video Can't Kill the Radio Star
    cambridge MASSACHUSETTS

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    ben BRADY: This thesis aims to explore the tension prevalent in tody’s libraries from all scales. Video cannot kill the radio star. Despite promises of obsolescence of one technology over another, we must realize that this is never the case. Video didn’t kill radio. Photography didn’t kill painting. Film didn’t kill the theater and the age of digital information will not kill the book and the library. “This” doesn’t kill “that,” but rather “that” may be re-defined by “this.” The library is at a unique place today as facing head-on the power, speed, and mobility of the digital world, while simultaneously being burdened by its own immense physicality.
