    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    josh TARON, adam ONULOV, & michael McGIE: In her essay, “The Natural in Architecture and Culture,” Elizabeth Grosz cites Plato’s chora as a “receptacle or nurse that brings matter into being, without being material; it nurtures the idea into material form, without being ideal.” The positioning of architecture as an indeterminate attendant[1] is a mode that had been addressed only a few years prior to the Blur Building in the Chora L Works.[2] This is not a point to be dismissed as the Blur Building should be understood as an achievement of architecture that for one reason or another could not be resolved previously between Eisenman and Derrida. Furthermore, it concurrently enables Architecture to operate without ideal meaning while opening up infinite possibilities for complex material affects.

    “Many categorical problems of complexity and limited indeterminacy have already been codified through software as explicit informational territories [program]. Of crucial importance to these programs is their ability to mediate and reify informational bodies – inputting, conditioning and outputting data such that program-specific value and meaning are added to all three phases and posited as ontologically equivalent objects. Within this mode of design, the urgency for discretely structural strategies is paramount. . . .”
