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.

Building Black Utopias: Modeling the Architectural Principles of African American Literature, 1960-1975

BY CHARLES L. DAVIS, II, PH.D.
@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

"We started with several books that looked at the brownstone as a site of intervention."

In Building Black Utopias: Modeling the Architectural Principles of African American Literature, 1960-1975 from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, Charles L. Davis, II, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Architecture at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, shows works from his recent exhibition project, Building Black Utopias, and discusses the literature that served as inspiration. 

The Building Black Utopias project combines the tools of the architect, the historian and the literary critic to recover the historical contributions of African American writers to architectural utopian thought. It specifically examines the role of literary depictions of place in June Jordan, Amiri Baraka, Paule Marshall and Angela Davis’ writings. Davis argues that each authors’ rhetorical manipulations of the built environment operates on the same level as architectural utopian thought insofar as both mediums created rich, alternative depictions of modernist space to liberate the architect’s imagination. The final exhibit translates the spatial ideas of literature into drawings, models and other ephemera.
