Low Fidelity – Erin Besler


Low Fidelity by Erin Besler is a thesis that steps outside the generic fromula of approaching thesis; which normally is problem, solution, building.  The thesis challenges  the mediums in which architecture and building are understood.  She goes far beyond any case study in her explorational thesis which is married with House VI by Peter Eisenman.  Each time flipping the design on its head and challenging it in a new medium and way of understanding architect through graphic and physical mediums.  Check it out after the jump!

Edible Infrastructure- Darrick Borowski, Jeroen Janssen, Nikoletta Poulimeni

Check out this project from a few students at The AA.  Done as part of an emergent technologies class, the few students created a new neighborhood, computational derived from the need for space and sustainability.  Although we would have liked to see some of the more important buildings have a more thorough design, the importance is in the larger scale of the urban fabric that is created.

Wifi Cold Spot- Ben Brady

We’re gonna take today to show a pretty sweet project, that aims to create a space very few can find lately in the world, a spot completely devoid of electronic interruption. Now, its starting to cool down, and the outdoor times are going to get fewer and far between, but our desire to just get out of the city and leave our computers and cell phones behind have us loving this idea.  A small space that you can enter, and get away from any outside electronic disturbance, no wifi, no 3G, 4G, 8G, nothing.  Check it out.
