  • Movie Matter
    philadelphia PENNSYLVANIA

    A conversation between Mariana Ibañez and Simon Kim of IKstudio, and John Hong and Jinhee Park of SsD Architects. Moderated by Alicia Imperiale. “A Record or a Process? Why are designers not creating their own movies? Part presentation and part discussion, we will look at the experimental, speculative, and strange work of designers who manipulate the moving image as a design process, and not simply as documentation. We are not historians or theorists of cinema, and we are more than raconteurs with a camera: we can design, isolate, project, invert, and find new relationships among objects over time.”[REGISTER]

  • Cloud Cloak
    cambridge MASSACHUSETTS

    Cloud Cloak: The Cloak is a device that emits a wearable cloud. It emits a cover that negates the objectifying gaze of the observer. In a pervasive urban environment, the occupant may obscure their gender, their race, their identity.

    The device also allows the subject to choose a moment of respite and willful separation from the city as the cloud creates a singular space of occupancy.

  • Mechanical Garden
    cambridge MASSACHUSETTS

    Ibañez Kim Studio (Mariana Ibañez and Simon Kim) proposes a Mechanical Garden that enjoyed a unique partnership with artists and engineers in Philadelphia.

    The Mechanical Garden is a social stage for PS1 activities as well as for architecture-as-characters. A strong figural demarcation assembles a series of Characters into generously shaded arcades and walkways. This peripheral organization reinforces the existing geometries of the courtyard walls, but thickens them with canopy and programme – to allow for indeterminacy and found situations. Each Character is constructed from similar elements in fixed modules, but have differentiation in traits and features. They vary in orientation, internal spaces and function.
