Manhattan Project 2.0, or One Thing Donald Trump Taught Me About Architecture

PRESENTED ON MAY 12, 2016
IN KNOXVILLE @ VOL 19

In this presentation, Mark Stanley uses Donald Trump as an avatar for exploring other contingencies for architecture in the 21st Century. Though the lens of two of his favorite architectures, One Wilshire Tower and The Large Hadron Collider, he projects his future speculative design work onto Oak Ridge National Lab.

Cross Pollination of Design 2.0

BY WENDY W FOK
@ VOL 31 ON DEC 04, 2014

The endeavours of Wendy W Fok's research-based projects are dedicated to the creation of designs interlaced within the principals of procedural-based mathematics, logics, and material studies, within the field of architecture, digital media, and design. Her designs are substantiated through explorations between the cross-pollination of spatial installation arts and novel architectural innovations embedded within international urban cityscapes. This presentation for the IIDEX Canada 2014 explores the applied research and experimentation made through the spectrum of built and speculative work within the last five years.

Design-Build Education: Creating a New Education Center for Beardsley Community Farm

BY JENNIFER AKERMAN
@ VOL 16 ON AUG 06, 2015

Presented with Bud Archer and Bailey Green. 

Students and faculty from the University of Tennessee’s College of Architecture and Design will present on the benefits of design-build education as illustrated by an innovative new building being created for Beardsley Community Farm in Knoxville—a non-profit urban demonstration farm promoting food security and sustainable agriculture. Design-build education through architectural design courses at UT enabled making a building that reinforces Beardsley’s mission. The new structure will operate as a teaching tool helping farm staff and volunteers more effectively engage the public about the benefits of local sustainable farming. It also creates significant public spaces for the benefit of the community at large.

Knox : 682

BY KEITH KASEMAN
@ VOL 17 ON NOV 12, 2015

“The idea is that if we just use progressive design techniques and agile thinking that maybe we can reformat the city itself into new ideas of space.”

In Knox : 682 from PechaKucha Night Knoxville’s 17th volume, Keith Kaseman, founding partner of the architecture and design firm KBAS, shares his first 682 days as a professor at the University of Tennessee School of Architecture and Design and as a resident of Knoxville, TN.

University of Tennessee Governor's Chair for Energy and Urbanism

BY JAMES ROSE
@ VOL 19 ON MAY 12, 2016

What can we do together that we can't do individually? This is the
question that serves to unite the efforts of UT College of Architecture
and Design, Skidmore Owings and Merrill, and ORNL as partners in
the Governor's Chair for Energy and Urbanism. Based in the
downtown FabLab and taught in conjunction with Phil Enquist and
others from SOM and ORNL, the Governor's Chair studios challenge
students to tackle tough design problems. One such challenge is the
architectural application of additive manufacturing or 3D printing. In
the spring of 2015 a graduate architecture studio was tasked with
developing an understanding of the opportunities and limitations of
this new technology. These findings foregrounded the design and
construction of the AMIE prototype. More akin to natural processes
like seashell growth than familiar construction, the process of
designing and building AMIE has created a platform for global
leadership in this emerging field for UT, SOM, and ORNL.

The Architecture of Entitlement

BY EMMA FULLER
@ VOL 18 ON MAY 18, 2017

In a whirlwind PechaKucha presentation, architect Emma Fuller discusses a history of language and the city plan - how entitlement has created a new architectural tool for the powerful to dismantle the collective and empower the singular. See examples from Mussolini to Trump in this 20x20 !

Emma Fuller is an associate with Diane Lewis Architect PC and teaches architectural history and theory at Pratt Institute. She received her degree from the Cooper Union. Her work addresses architecture as art and memory. This is expanded upon in published essays, exhibitions and architectural projects including the "Richmond as a Work of Art" series, the IPA fellowship, the Green Ward and Michelangelo-La Tourette papers, and the Nebo House.

The Seneca-Salamanca Leasehold Study

BY BRADSHAW HOVEY, PH.D.
@ VOL 18 ON SEP 24, 2016

"They wanted to infuse architecture with research and they proposed to build a pedagogical process around project work."

In The Seneca-Salamanca Leasehold Study from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 18, Research Associate Professor 
at the University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning, Bradshaw Hovey, Ph.D., recounts how one of the great student research projects from the school's 50-year history was devised by the school's founding leadership. One of the very first projects to engage UB students was a paid commission for the Seneca Nation of Indians to advise them on negotiations for a new lease between the nation and the residents of the City of Salamanca, NY whose homes sat on Seneca land. That such a project would be undertaken by architecture students was a signal about how expansively the founders of the school conceived of its professional domain.
