Ming Fung introduces Jesse Reiser of Reiser + Umemoto. Fung portrays the dynamism of the firm being generated from the interaction of Reiser’s ambition to transcend program and Umemoto’s ambition for material and program to be reconciled. Their practice has involved these types of debates since they began in a garage in New York. Reiser taught at Columbia University and was recently awarded a professorship at Princeton.


Michael Rock Some Assembly Required-clip_2615

Subclip

Michael Rock describes graphic design is an aimless practice and the work of 2×4 meanders more than others, mostly consisting of big, messy projects. Their design for Any magazine used two type faces and one grid for the entire series. The design of Mark Taylor’s book Hiding was followed by a brochure for the Princeton School of Architecture. The textbook Seeing & Writing was intended as an English composition reader engaged with visual culture. It’s deployment of images and typographies exemplifies 2×4’s merging of theory and practice.
