Urban Seams and Sutures: Strategies for Intervening in Pre-Industrial Urban Landscapes

The urban condition has become “a space of spontaneous self-organization and emergence, it is inherently dynamic, connected, interactive, a messy assemblage of networks, systems, ecologies, all competing with and contaminating, each other” (Furján 2008, 52).  While these conditions and phenomena

Detours and Denouements

Architectural education is challenged by the pressing needs of a changing profession. With increasing costs and diminishing fees, firms deploy digital tools and/or outsource work to more efficiently deliver design services. Schools are similarly streamlining processes, responding to charged professional

Urban Fabrications

As the physical topography of the city is displaced by its constituent processes, flows, and non-physical motivators, these become the precise embodiment of a changed urbanity.  As Manuel Castells has written, the “informational city is not a form but a process, a process characterized

Knots and Nurbs: Relational Spaces in Variable Fields

Legibility of constructed space is largely based on relationships internal to a work, relationships that can be read or understood through the terms of the construct itself. Components are set in relation to one another, marking purpose and intent, shaping
