More > cripple, undermine and demilitarize the most powerful military in the free world ... six dark contributors to America’s current crisis. The intent of this book is not to birth more “conspiracy theories”, “point fingers”, or “publicly ridicule” our governmental hierarchy; I am simply a voice for the people; a rallying point, a relief valve for the anguish, unrest, deep uncertainties, and the emotional topography felt by the citizenry of a troubled nation. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. [Thomas Paine, Pennsylvania Journal, Winter 1776]< Less

A fabricated landscape of cones finds its origins in the ambient sounds of New Orleans. This site specific installation emphasizes the transformation of invisible sound bands and frequencies into... More > an atmosphere landscape made of material and color. The sculptural topography, intricately fabricated from individual pieces, is made of 300 CNC milled acrylic plates that are folded to create cylindrical cells snapped together with 10,000 rivets. Each cell, unique in diameter and height, creates an intriguing visual surface reminiscent of geological or biological surfaces. Sounds augment the dimension of public space, linking geography with human activity. Our proposal reinterprets the traditional relationship of sound defined by physical space. Rather, the installation offers new spatial possibilities as sound acts as a generator for transforming matter into a complex spatial topography otherwise invisible to the naked eye.< Less

The subject of Land and Sea, based on the research topics conducted by Fernand D'Amico and Jacques Wisman, is proposed in this book as a themed walk through the passages of Scripture from the Old ... More > and New Testament. The biblical text (KJV) is presented deliberately devoid of additional comments to offer an immediate and direct perception of the selected track. The thematic reading of the biblical text opens to the reader as a fascinating experience that allows him to benefit in a short time, a surprising and rich picture of content. The land and the sea are the symbolic soul of the human universe. In the context of biblical discourse any reference to these places and full of mystical meanings. That part which represents the boundary between sea and land, is more in keeping with the ancestral topography of human soul and life.< Less

More > departure from the First-Year Program that focused on bodies and objects in relation to space. AR283 initiates the mind-bending scale of program, context and topography calculations. Site Orders -- whether organic and naturally occurring or controlled human interventions - are analyzed in the design process to help define the space that exists at the seam of earth and sky. Architecture is not a box that lands on the ground irreverent to its surroundings. Architecture, attentive to site orders, is responsible to accessibility, is sensitive to the lack or abundance of natural resources, and blends object programs with spatial fields.< Less
