I’ve just finished designing a webpage for the studio I taught with Hernan Diaz Alonso at Columbia. It’s a pretty simple page that tries not to compete too much with the work, but still keeps the feeling of what we were after in the course. Click here to visit.
This is a great x-ray view through Greg Derrico’s super organic studio project.
This is truly an innovation in surface architecture, though I’m not so sure if I think we should be headed in this direction. Still, the rash like patches appearing in the seams of this piece are pretty impressive on the level of effects and technique. This monstrosity can be credited to George “Gorgeous George” Makrinos, future blockbuster film maker and current GSAPP student.
Hernan Diaz Alonso, my former teacher, has asked me to teach with him this semester at Columbia. We’ll be expanding on a body of research done over the past few years into problems of affect.
Hemostology Coagulated Architecture
Advanced Studio V
Hernan Diaz Alonso and Alexander Pincus
Liberated from the obligation to communicate meaning whether historical, philosophical, or theoretical, architecture is today once again free to give full expression to its creative potential. Exploring the possibilities of the interiority of the architecture, as a new dynamic field that can be occupied as a network of parts, creating a new continuity trough space. The relation between virtual and physical usually has been defined as a kind of duality, between two different kind of worlds, the studio, will try to explore new boundaries of possibilities of re-definition between these two conditions. Critical to the discussion of interiority is the conditional understanding of the irreducible ‘unit’ that composes architecture. Investigating the nature of the unit and what is irreducible to architecture will allow for us to explore the topic of coagulation and liquidity.
