Introduction by:

Benjamin Farnsworth, who with Stefano Passeri was the 2013-4 Design of Theory Fellow at SCI-Arc, reviews their re-launch of Offramp, and their seminar mapping trends in contemporary architecture. In a talk titled “Non non-narrative,” Farnsworth argues for an “exquisitely failed architecture” by the “architect manqué,” illustrated by a skit by comedian George Carl interpreted according to the categories of H. Paul Grice. Farnsworth outlines his work from his 2013 M.Arch thesis, through seminars and design studios taught at Woodbury and Syracuse.

Jeffrey Kipnis introduces the second of the Fecundity of a Mossy Climate conversations with a survey of Florencia Pita’s work, including Tendril Formations in the SCI-Arc Gallery, Alice (2007), the Lapset Playground (2009), the Flowervases (2009),  the Kaohsiung Ferry Port Terminal (2010), Cronopios at the Art Institute of Chicago (2010), and the UMMA Table & Exhibition (2013). Kipnis stresses Pita’s focus on architectural issues, arguing that what often seems to be flatness in her work is only apparent.
