SEGREGATED MONOLITHS | Alex Phi

Alex Phi (6)

Alex Phi project speaks for itself as an impressive exploration into the disruption and breaking of what is a monolithic structure.  The complexities come from pulling, pushes, and breaking a solid geometric form, which adds layers and depths to the organizational form.  Yet it still reads at times as a simple elegant piece.   Alex’s video is a great example of diagrammatic exploration that continues to evolve and build off each previous exploration.  We often can get stuck trying to “create architecture”, but the projects that always stick out to us are the ones that constantly explore and push without limitation.  Check it out after the jump a truly great process to learn from as a student!

Preparing for The Bartlett Summer Show 2013

one

Although we tossed this up on as a post on our Facebook wall today, we thought we should highlight it a bit more.  The UCL puts on annual showcase of the students works, and the event has grown with each year.  When most students are tossing their models out and clearing out their desks, the Bartlett School of Architecture is in full on design and construction phase.  The projects are not simply hung on the wall, but each space is designed and tailored to each studio.  The presentations themselves become an architectural exploration, beyond the projects.  The students collaborate and design the installation locations.  If only F+ was located in England we would be checking it out ourselves, but maybe you are and you should!   Get inspired by seeing what other student designers are doing!  Check it out after the jump!
