AN’s Matthew Marani present’s Site 4’s complex façade systems in this month’s special issue of AN.

“At Site 4, the aluminum panels are enormous—each is 10 feet tall, anywhere between 15 and 29 feet wide, and weighs 4,200 pounds—yet they are arranged like courses of masonry. Pushing the comparison further, they dagger at the tower corners like coppery quoins.”

MIT mock-ups featured in David K. Ross’s new book

Posted on May 15th, 2021 by Nicole Sakr

Posted under: _MIT Site 4, construction

Archetypes features a recent series by Canadian artist David K. Ross, who works at the interface of photography, film, and installation. His images of architectural mock-ups, staged at night with dramatic lighting that isolates structures from their surroundings, demonstrate how these objects have become a charged form of proto-architecture. The book offers an effective platform to consider what it means to pre-construct fragments of buildings in all their complexity. Published alongside Ross’s images are four essays framing the historical, technological, and civic significance of the mock-up.

NADAAA, Kendall Square, Cambridge, United States, 2018 (I and II)

Many of Ross’s works will be exhibited at upcoming shows in Zurich, Munich, Basel, and at Daniels Building’s Architecture and Design Gallery.
