  • 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]

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    brandon CUFFY, judy FULTON, & stacy MORTON: CoFLEXions is a responsive inflatable that creates a unique connection between the individual user, the collective, and a spatial environment. This responsive inflatable is a project that tests the implications of responsive architecture through formal and spatial means. As responsive technologies become readily accessible to architects and designers, they provide an opportunity for users to have unique agency over their spatial environments.

  • 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.

  • Of the Senses

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    glen j. SANTAYANA: In imagining the architecture of the future, I thought about the current trend that technology plays in our lives today, mainly referring to the heavy consumption of social media networks, status updates, and monitoring the latest trends. We are constantly plugged in; developing a relationship between ourselves, the viewing apparatus, and the virtual world. This perpetual fix to our device has generated a culture in which human qualities and interaction between one another have subsided and declined. As a result, I am interested in human qualities and its role in the architecture of the future through methods of emotional and sensorial inquiries.

  • 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.

  • The Philadelphia Masque
    Cambridge PHILADELPHIA

    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    Mariana IBAÑEZ + Simon KIM: Philadelphia has identified a disproportionate urban condition of vacant lots that are not only large in number but are widely distributed regardless of real-estate value. Ownership among the private, and public (Redevelopment Authority, Philadelphia Housing Authority and others) suggest that there is intention held back by onerous conditions. While these voids can be seen as endemic of urban blight, our studio is interested in researching how we cognitively map our environment, or how we perceive our location via references.
