The Anatomy of an (Architectural) Model

BY BARTLOMIEJ K. SAPETA
@ VOL 94 ON JUL 25, 2012

Presenting design projects to the public does not warrant an opportunity to explain choices made during the production of architectural models. However, these are essential elements of the design process that have an ability to significantly enhance the quality of the presentation, especially when complex three-dimensional spatial arrangements are present, time, resources, and budgets are limited and artistic visions and values are at stake. This presentation examines an array of choices that led to a production of an architectural model on a rapid prototyping machine.

Confined Architectural Space and Psychological Unease

BY GARY SCZERBANIEWICZ
@ VOL 14 ON NOV 17, 2015

"I want to destabilize the viewer in relation to the work."

In Confined Architectural Space and Psychological Unease from PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 14, artist, sculpture, and professor, Gary Sczerbaniewicz shares his practice involving an insatiable fascination with interior architectural spaces that evoke a sense of psychological unease. This compulsion toward an aesthetics of anxiety leads him to fabricate confined space environments which include-scale shifts-using architectural models seamlessly blended into full-sized structures - into which the viewer is invited to physically enter and explore.

The Zoo Inside You

BY MONICA METZ
@ VOL 23 ON JUN 13, 2017

Modern life is often a war between needs and desires. We know we should make a healthy dinner. But we order take-out anyway. We calendar in a workout, but skip it when someone invites us to happy hour. But what if it didn’t always come down to needs vs. desires? What if we somehow got ourselves to a place where they became nearly the same thing? Monica Metz will discuss the mysterious microbiome within you, and why what you do and eat today will affect what you crave tomorrow.
