  • On the Road 3.
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    Los Angeles is a city developed around and defined by houses rather than large architectural monuments. The singular residential unit is an elastic object, having long nurtured experimental pursuits and critical inquiry. Participants in On the Road 3 have selected an existing house located West of downtown Los Angeles to engage with and respond to through the medium of drawing.

    event: “On the Road 3” with AKINS, THENHAUS, FLOOD, PETERSON, LENG, ERICSON, COLANGELO, & GILMARTIN.
    Sunday, 11/17
    10.00 a.m.-4.00 p.m. / West of La Brea
    Los Angeles, CA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Todd SWANSON & Louie BOFILL: The project centers around Chicago’s Union Station, a complex shared between a historic terminal and a mid-high-rise office building overlooking the Chicago River. The abstract addresses the continuing problem of a public space in decline due to its subterranean concourse and dark enclosed spaces, and creates a hub for a future high speed rail intersecting the city.

  • F-Lab, Beinahe Alles.
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Heather FLOOD (principal, F-Lab): In 1951 Mies Van der Rohe completed the Lake Shore Drive Apartments in Chicago, Illinois. The slenderness of the structural frame afforded by the Chicago skeleton in combination with the transparency of the envelope afforded by the curtain wall allowed Mies to push architecture towards his ideal of “Beinahe Nichts” or “Almost Nothing.” This proposal seeks to re-frame the envelope of the tower typology toward an architecture of “Beinahe Alles” or “Almost Everything.” Instead of focusing on the singular objective of transparency, Beinahe Alles, proposes a thick skin that through excessive materialization produces a wide range of performance and atmospheric effects.

  • Wonder Wall
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    This project, Wonder Wall, is located at the intersection between architectural and graphic form. It explores the large-scale visual effects that can be produced when two-dimensional graphic patterns are translated into three-dimensional constructions. Specifically, Wonder Wall translates a swatch of tartan fabric into a gyrating wall made out of interlocked strips of perforated colored aluminum. The intersecting vertical and horizontal strips of aluminum gently twist to form a 9’x9’x1’-8” grid with multiple overlapping conditions. As the aluminum overlaps, new colors begin to emerge and a gradient field of porous openings rotates in relationship to the viewer. Wonder Wall slips between two and three dimensions into a space of 2.5D where visual effects emerge from the specificities of material construction.

    Amorphis (ramiro DIAZ-GRANADOS), IDEA Office (eric KAHN & russell THOMSEN), and Flab (heather FLOOD): NTCArt Museum (New Taipei City Art Museum)

    Contrary to the conventional museum as an insular institution that isolates art from the life of the city surrounding it, the NTCArt seeks to generate new experiences and understandings by merging art, recreation and tourism as a compelling set of convergences. Rather than museum as a collector or storehouse of culture, the NTCArt will be a people’s art museum, a generator of culture and lifestyle that comes from the convergence of art and life.
