    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Stelios PSALTIS: This project belongs to a series of experiments on investigating possible mechanisms of creating patterns. The logic behind creating patterns although, has less to do with specific expressions of stylistic preferences, but rather lies upon the idea of reusing information. These examples act as visual representations, depicting the powerful capacity of programed algebraic rules to reuse information. Repeated visual units and ordered patterns, produced out of any, even random given entities.

    Taubman College, University of Michigan
    critics: Matias del CAMPO (Eliel Saarinen Visiting Professor) & Adam FURE

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Harold SPRAGUE SOLIE, Ning ZHOU, Mark WRIGHT, & Bennett SCORCIA: deferentialCONSTRUCTIONS takes its cue from the phenomenon known as Apophenia, which is the perceiving of meaningful patterns in seemingly random or meaningless data. If used advantageously, apophenia can allow for multiple readings within a single spatial environment. The project attempts to leverage a basic architectural proto-condition to test out the implications and possibilities inherent within this phenomenon.

    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.

  • PUCPR Student Dormitory
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S: This building is a proposal for a 120-bed student dormitory for the Pontificia Catholic University of Puerto Rico in Ponce, the second largest city of the island and the old capital before San Juan. As part of a larger master plan aiming to attract students from the whole Caribbean region and fulfill the current demand of 500 apartments, the proposal aims to create a new presence within the campus. Articulating a vertical mass with a figural void that encapsulates the main social areas of the program, our proposal aims to induce human interaction among students and visitors in a vertical environment while enhancing unprecedented urban vistas from and to the historic center of the city just beyond the university campus.

  • 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

    seminarraum b

    in recent architectural history, interstitial space came to be associated with strategies of the local, the anomalies and spaces in-between. a possible expansion within this lineage implies conceiving interstices as absolutely integral to architectonic order, mass and structure; figurally embedded, materially articulated, intensely but locally distributed across the fabric of building.
