Introduction by:

Eric Bunge proposes that his work with Mimi Hoang at nArchitects engages with the differing boundaries of control and indeterminacy. Specifically, he discusses their work under three categories: architecture that adapts to change, architecture that creates interaction between diverse publics, and conceptual and material economy. Projects include the Canopy for PS. 1, My Micro NY compact affordable housing, a visitor center for the Wyckoff House Museum, the Switch Building, the riverfront M2 in Calgary, the ABC department store in Beirut, and a renovation of Chicago’s Navy Pier.

Josh Melnick remarks, “I never make pieces without thinking how they are going to be shown,” and describes how he designed the exhibition. He describes his current project, Chair Work, in which Melnick set up a temporary film set in a vacant retail space in New York and invited passersby to have a photographic portrait taken. He explains how title for the project came from psychiatrist Fritz Perls. During the Q&A Melnick states he would like people to experience “what it means to look at someone else, and what it means to look at something deeply.” He explains how his practice of meditation influences his work. Joe Day comments about Melnick’s framing of subjects and its connection to reflecting, mirroring emotion.

Introduction by:

David and Paul Lewis of Lewis Tsurumaki Lewis discuss a gallery installation that eavesdropped on conversations, and amplified and and relayed them around the space. They describe the tectonic aspect of the installation. They discuss a series of projects addressing the suburban condition, exploring mass manufacturing, mass customization and horizontality. They discuss a proposal to merge sprawl housing with big-box retail. Lewis and Lewis discuss their competition entry for the Great Egyptian Museum. They discuss their intent to create relationships between the community of Giza and the nearby pyramids. A waterway provided unity and also functioned as part of the cooling system for the museum. They explain the different tourist interest areas they created. Lewis and Lewis present a residence hall for the College of Wooster in Ohio. They interviewed students and analyzed the program, to optimize living groups and social spaces. An additional concern was creating a strong relationship between the residence hall and an adjacent park. One of the project constraints was a requirement for a pitched roof, which they exploited to create new spatial arrangements.
