Win–Win Ongoing research as an extension of work completed during core studio. This project is moving away from the polemic of “infinite interiority” and trying to discover a productive public generated from thoughtful strategies of urban compression and, ultimately, growth. Burdened by the social and economic debt of the gambling industry--and the infrastructure that supports it--atlantic cityhas become “morally bankrupt, a second-rate city of sin” – “Those people who come to the island indeed occupy and populate it; but in reality, were they sufficiently separate, sufficiently creative, they would give the island only a dynamic image of itself, a consciousness of the movement which produced the island, such that through them th island would in the end become conscious of itself as deserted and unpeopled. The island would be only the dream of humans, and humans, the pure consciousness of the island.” –Deleuze – The project aim is to imagine dynamic, more synthetic modes of occupation of Absecon Island, the geologic site incorporating Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Burdened by the social and economic debt of the gambling industry--and the infrastructure that supports it--Atlantic City has become “morally bankrupt, a second-rate city of sin” (KG). An eroding economic base and a lack of educational and other social infrastructures has led to the mass eviction of native residents. The island’s constituency has become stakeholder. Commuter tourism is pardoned from civic responsibility...

Single wythe, reinforced, load-bearing concrete masonry walls encase a public bath below and support a false plinth above. Stone veneer wraps a glazed box, which glows when activated by a series of skylights on the roof. The inner diaphragm is supported by rudimentary steel construction. All building services are pushed to the periphery to allow for maximum programmed space. Corrugated steel wraps lightly around a changing room and a utility room. A restroom and steam room are bound by more massive, cut stone.

COASTAL RESILIENCY “ESCR” is a development of BIG’s HUD–Rebuild by Design proposal, a 1,000,000 M2 initiative that is aimed at addressing structural and environmental vulnerabilities exposed by hurricanes and other coastal phenomena in communities throughout the 1.0 INTRODUCTION New York City region. ESCR, which incorporates PROJECT GOALS & DESIGN APPROACH key functions of BIG’s “Dryline” along a twomile stretch of the East River Park in Lower Manhattan, is a continuous system of lowlying natural and engineered environmental products designed to bring value to the city’s marginalized coastal communities.

One of the core principles driving ESCR is the productive co-habitation of community and flood infrastructure. Current trends in coastal resiliency prioritize engineered solutions that may alienate populations rather than invite civic participation and integration with existing social fabrics. Engineered solutions are, by nature, costeffective and reliable, which is why ESCR factors in long- term planning and targeted resource allocation that is both flexible and STRETCH METAL LOGIC

CRITIC MARGARITA JOVER

How can architecture give representation to the formation of subjectivity? Currently, this process is exploited by the free market and continues to be endorsed by parents, teachers, employers, CEOs and political leaders, transforming the college degree into a commodity, the value of which is increasingly dubious. In its modern rendition, the university has failed its most important constituency, the individual.

FOIL operates as a series of three abstract elements between scales of intimate gathering and ad-hoc exhibition. As a trilogy of “foils,” each element may exist independently of the others. Antagonists by definition, however, when working together the Billboard, the Lawn, and the Work Court reflect the spirit of Socrates Sculpture Park and its historic role as a steward of community activism, bootstrapping conservation, and experimental forms of media and art exhibition, inviting the public to display, to inhabit and to find release.

URBAN: GUGGI BAR is an urban catalyst. It is conceived to enhance and create key public spaces in South Harbor and the center of Helsinki, while revolutionizing the way in which the contemporary museum works. Taking the form of a simple “bar”, it takes command of the site and has solidity to stand in the large scale of the surroundings. Its elevated civic level, pedestrian bridge and extended pedestrian deck thread the city and the museum, industrial and cultural, public and intimate, periphery and center, as well as the park and waterfront on the site that is currently fragmented by Laivasillankatu and no-access port zones. In this very majestic and historic part of Helsinki, the museum comfortably embraces surrounding infrastructure without over-engineering the ground. With Matthew Jull, Leena Cho, and HG Team.

Upon arrival, the prepackaged, stackable elements are strategically arranged along the axis of the original eight columns. This organization sets the meter for the deployment of the elements in the adjacent square.

TAYLOR HEWETT

Deployment

Mies’ Party Liberated from outdated nationalism and unbound by increasingly lubricated extranational trade, this proposal gives form to the globalized economic system. At the time of the Barcelona pavilion’s creation, Mies van der Rohe sought to interrogate the idea of unity by imposing a new language onto a diverse collection of architectural components. Against this directive, our proposal embraces diversity’s cacophony and disposes with the idea of unity altogether. Against the historicist symbolism of Cadafalch’s sculptural columns we propose a deprogrammed territory that overturns the dominance of the monumental object with an act of space-making. Using the free plan, this territory demonstrates the capacity of the system to provide excess in the face of limitation. Within this territory we aspire to show that not only can the representation of the global system be accomplished without the use of monument or icon, but that these devices betray its character. Instead, we seek to generate a format that resets the spatial conditions of the park and reframes it for anything. Concealing the park’s existing conditions beneath a veneer of artificial turf, this new zone stretches modern rationality’s ability to efficiently meet needs to erase the question of need altogether. The extroversion of the proposal is given momentary relief by the occasional shielding of views.

In contrast to the static composition of Mies’ pavilion, the distribution of these elements across the square inaugurates a truly free plan. Regardless of the occupation of the site, the proposal advances the intentions of the international style: flatten hierarchy and eliminate the suggestion of program as well its implications.
