  • CHEN & LaLONE, Juxtapose'd Eccentric.

    critic: Peter ZELLNER

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Kevin Yen-Po CHEN & Eric LaLONE: The multi-unit housing project studies and merges the eccentric grid that sandwiches the site in downtown Los Angeles. The unique triangular site and its restrictions form the tightly controlled project. The goal is to provide unique aperture and spaces for every single unit and to create pattern that juxtaposes yet merges within itself.

    SCI-Arc Future Initiatives (SCIFI), Fall 2012
    critic: Peter ZELLNER

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Joel KERNER: Our cities have traded good congestion, that being pedestrian movement and necessitated interaction, for a congestion of automobiles and transit. Our architecture—and ultimately our urban space—is increasingly getting out of scale as we trade traditional planning and hierarchy for Bigness and isolation. Our once great urban space has slowly been replaced by lifeless infrastructure that separates pedestrians from their destinations.

    Jinming FENG: The project challenge the conventional urban design approaches, and specifically focuses on the traversal rationality between urban figure, field, ground, and network. The design scrutinizes several new and topical urban design approaches that blur figure-field relations via mathematically and digitally driven techniques.

    critic: Peter ZELLNER

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Steve MOODY: An attempt at increasing density and improving access for pedestrian, bicycle and mass transit in Los Angeles via architectural intervention, “LAND” uses logics of aggregation to create piles of units that adapt to different uses, circulation, and scales. The primary form of the aggregation is in leaning piles that create an over/under condition—terraced units create private outdoor space for residences and pedestrian circulation on top, while roads, mass transit, parking and other service spaces are placed underneath.

  • PATCH I LINK I SUTURE: Re-Envisioning Los Angeles: From Pattern to Form

    critics: Peter ZELLNER & Alfonso MEDINA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Duygun INAL: Cities have never been singular entities as they do have molecular compositions based on interactions in between diverse & active constellations that unite to co-habit the city. Looking at the urban pattern of LA, the project takes on the idea of map figurations and a different position towards densifying Los Angeles. Rather than ideal & existing forms with closed shapes, rigid boundaries and defined figures, the basic building blocks have irregular shapes with maximized porosity within the field.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    ta (david) YU: The forming of the urban context is based on the existing territory, something that changes slowly, and human activities, which are changing all the time. Due to the non-stop pace of human activities, the urban context remains in a cycle of perpetual negotiation. Like organic tissue, the city is always in a state of growth, decay, and rebirth.

  • Topological Urbanism
    lubbock TEXAS

    What are the ways that we can organize our analytical evaluations of city development so that we can more successfully create an urban landscape that has the ability to generate ephemeral, or even oscillating tissues from various scales and simultaneously constructing an inter-connected urban fabric? This symposium will explore how researchers and practitioners define new explorations, manage interpretations, and offer new implementations for our built environments through an understanding of these informational intensities of ‘local’ to ‘local’ interactions.

    We see the site as neither a classically green civic space in tradition of Central Park nor a truly wild or natural preserve such as the eight refuges within the Long Island National Wildlife Refuge Complex.* Fort Tilden is not imbued with a remarkable institutional mission (to preserve, to educate or to even stimulate the public) and it is arguably not a natural space infused with a particularly rich natural legacy worthy of significant preservation efforts.
