Through the development of an office that simulates the creation of Architecture, my thesis section sought to answer the question: how can an architectural practice, post-grad, continue to theorize and generate new ways if understanding and creating architecture?
Our office is circular in form and subdivided into four quadrants that look into systems and networks found within four categories: infrastructure, landscape, social spaces, and urbanity. The circular plan is comprised of five rings: ambience, production, design, research, and discovery. These rings can then rotate to create countless permutations of the original four quadrants.
Our first work is a massive exhibition designed to demonstrate our offices practice at its most ideal state as it tries to make sense of the dystopian and utopian aspects of this complex form of Architecture.
The exhibition vehemently explores the creation of architecture through the distillation and abstraction of existing networks and systems, both material and immaterial, found in everyday life from the four categories.
