  • Window Shopping Across the Void

    critic: greg LYNN

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    james DIEWALD & matt GOLDSBERRY: Window Shopping Across the Void features three hundred thousand square feet of showrooms for fashion furniture and fine art in downtown Los Angeles. Contemporary media culture’s capacity to distract, captivate and capture large audiences is largely unrivalled by architecture. This is particularly the case in Los Angeles. Our project speculates on the spatial innovation made possible when the potentials of media experience motivate physical organization.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project

    ivan BERNAL: Familiar Primitives. This thesis uses familiar primitives and operations among them to generate complex spatial systems that retain a high level of formal legibility and clarity. Throughout history primitives have been used as an expression of monumentality, religiousness or even utopian dreams. They carry an intrinsic value and formal expectancy that can be used to capture its users.

    SCI-Arc
    critic: andrew ZAGO

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    paul MECOMBER: The Whitney Museum, by architect Marcel Breuer, is an iconic cultural artifact of New York City, and serves as the identity of the institution of the museum itself. This identity has been thrown into a state of turmoil as a result of plans to relocate from Madison Avenue to the southern terminal end of the Highline Park. Seeing this as an opportunity, this project seeks to re-imagine the problems associated with iconic identity in museum design by twining Breuer’s Whitney on the new Highline site.

  • Manifold Masses, Kaohsiung Port Terminal, Taiwan

    [JURY SELECTION]
    UCLA
    critic: georgina HULJICH

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    jessica DOVLETIAN & wenny HSU: Manifold Masses: Kaohsiung Port Terminal, Taiwan. This project investigates formal internal orders of architecture, specifically saddle polyhedral and their potential for generating intensive massing and figural interstices. We were interested in a rigorous and playful examination of these systems and their capacity to generate new forms and spatial expressions that are themselves embedded within a deep underlying order.

    lexington KENTUCKY

    Lend your support to suckerPUNCH’s upcoming exhibition at Land of Tomorrow Gallery! A unique way for the public to engage with contemporary student work, the exhibition’s content investigates: transmogrifications, strange sensations, primal textures, unfamiliar geometries, self-propagating architectural species, augmented atmospherics, vicissitudinous juxtapositions, reinvented building typologies, sensual pleated skins, and much more. All support will help expand the scope of the three prototypes to be fabricated, increase the exhibition’s scale, and allow fabrication time with PR&vD for exhibition finalists.
