    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.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Steve MOODY: Two separate piles are scripted—one for the exterior that creates overall form and orientation, and one for the interior, accounting for circulation and the two main concert halls—and then intersected with each other. Discrepancies and misalignments between the two intersecting piles create cracks that form continuity between the two aggregations. Residual spaces in the poche between the two piles becomes support space for the theaters, administrative areas and educational and practice facilities.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    steve MOODY: This project is an investigation into the effects of physical and visual fragmentation in the context of a tower generated through a process of variable extrusion. Traditional notions of separation, interiority and image are challenged through this method of fracturing. Conceived as a portion of a project that includes a large scale particle collider and laboratories for nuclear research, the tower is intended as an icon for the scientific rejuvenation of Los Angeles and the uncertain nature of modern particle science.
