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!
