  • 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

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

    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.

    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.

This Lunar development is not the beginning, nor the final goal of humanity’s presence on the moon; it is merely a point-in-time of a perpetual, phased-project to expand human presence extra-terrestrially.
