  • Sierra HELVEY, "Specular Associations."
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    SCI-Arc
    advisor: Marcelyn GOW.

    Describe your project.

    Sierra HELVEY: Specular Associations is a center for visiting scientists located at the Kitt Peak Observatory. It exposes the reflective and active nature of the index though drawing comparison to the phenomenological characteristics of transparent material.

    Acts of translation deal with the shift from one mode of description to another, creating gaps in perception that challenge what can be construed, or misconstrued, to be either real or fictive. Differentiating itself from literal translation [metaphrase] or parallel translation [paraphrase], the project Semblances instead produces translations that attempt to render things with varying degrees of latitude and to bring that rendition together with its source. . . .

    critics: Marcelyn GOW, Sam JACOB, & Cino ZUCCHI.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Luciano Peirone UDRIOT: Stockholm Roofscape Revisited is a vision of a vertical densification and continuation of the 19th-century city, through additions that translate and negotiate the historicity of Stockholm’s cityscape with a contemporary approach, drawing on the existing while projecting forward. . . .

    “Within a discipline where the exact translation of virtual instructions, in the form of drawings or codes, to their material actualization has historically played a decisive role, the current use of algorithmic design tools and computer numerical control (CNC) fabrication technologies would seem to all but eliminate the possibility for exactitude to submit to some external corrupting influence.”

  • Buoyant Depositions

    SCI-Arc
    critic: Marcelyn GOW

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Nicholas BARGER & Brian HARMS: Buoyant Depositions focuses on the implications of technology in the design process by exploring questions of reproducibility, fluctuation and variability, as well as an aesthetic of the undesigned, or perhaps, the undesignable. The project specifically explores how robotic motion control may allow designers to generate and analyze inexact forms through unpredictable material interactions.

    Within a discipline where the exact translation of virtual instructions, in the form of drawings or codes, to their material actualization has historically played a decisive role, the current use of algorithmic design tools and computer numerical control (CNC) fabrication technologies would seem to all but eliminate the possibility for exactitude to submit to some external corrupting influence. Paradoxically, the seduction of algorithmic precision has become partially exhausted in the fulfilled promise of its own fidelity. The absolute control of geometry and its materialization suppresses the potentiality of that which exceeds the firmitas, or solidity, of inert matter. . . .

  • Transient Threshold
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    SCI-Arc, ESTm
    critic: Marcelyn GOW

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Jacques LESEC & Christopher MARTIN: The Transient Threshold project focuses on the collection, storage, and distribution of condensation that occurs during shifts in the ambient air temperature. A composite system is developed using flexible silicone sheets that are infused with structural filaments to expand surfaces for the accumulation of condensation. These surfaces contract and enclose water within a permeable enclosure.

    David Freeland is a partner at FreelandBuck in Los Angeles and design faculty at Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-ARC). His interests in teaching and practice focus on the spatial, atmospheric and structural potential of computational pattern. Deployed at a variety of scales and mediums, pattern is used to create organizational coherence while exploring spatial and perceptual variability.

  • Skin Fluctuation
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    keti CARAPULI: This project is about an architecture that celebrates materiality and its performance under air, water and light inputs. A design, which feeds back and forth from digital to material, from design to fabrication, from a choreographed movement to material fluctuation. Constraints evolving from the digital to the real generating a new sensibility that goes beyond the representation.

  • discussion: EMBEDDED
    culver city CALIFORNIA

    The LA Forum will host an event marking the publication of P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S’s new book, EMBEDDED, bringing together authors, contributors, mentors and confabulators to discuss some of the most relevant issues haunting contemporary architectural practice and discourse today, such as the perceived divide between progressive design culture, the politics of form and social responsibility. EMBEDDED is P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S’s long awaited book that reflects on the evolution, actualization and conclusion of certain lineages of design and material research, while signaling the initial stages of others.

    EMBEDDED: Marcelo Spina, Georgina Huljich, Marcelyn Gow, Michael Osman, and Todd Gannon
