Geostories: Another Architecture for the Environment

Posted on July 27th, 2018 by Dara Lin

Posted under: Academic, Press, Things We Like

Geostories: Another Architecture for the Environment, curated by Rania Ghosn and El Hadi Jazairy of DESIGN EARTH, is a collection of projects which combine geographic representation and projective design to bring attention to the current conditions of Earth and the environment, and where they may lead. Separated by scope into three sections – terrarium, aquarium, and planetarium – each projection attempts to foster awareness and a sense of immediacy in a population referred to as “anesthetized.”

The collection is a continuation of DESIGN EARTH’s contribution to the US Pavilion in the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale, titled “Cosmorama.” This exhibition sought to draw attention to the matters overlooked in the technological triumphalism and frontier narratives of the Space Age, by means of three hypothetical “geostories.”

Nader contributed an essay titled “Section Cut: An Allegorical Construct of the World,” in which he discusses the liminal space between allegory and reality, how the former speaks to the latter, and how the work of DESIGN EARTH is especially evocative in this respect.

“The answer to Design Earth’s representational approach might also be lodged in the idea of the allegory itself: that images – much like stories or buildings – call on their audiences to construct meaning within a larger ideological, ethical, or political sphere.”

Katie Juries Asia Pacific Interior Design Awards

Posted on December 20th, 2017 by Nicole Sakr

Posted under: Awards, Things We Like

Katie recently served as juror for the Asia Pacific Interior Design Awards, selecting the Suzhou Chapel as best of 2017.

“The Suzhou Chapel expresses its serenity through a simple palette of color and materials. Brick walls anchor the building to the landscape, while the looming white form indicates a hierarchy to be discovered. The interior appears to be a skillful bending of light, with raw concrete – punctuated by generous openings – subtly transitioning to a warm wood liner. The project is distinguished by its deceptive simplicity: the motif of the light boxes is echoed in the expertly constructed brick. The fixtures complement the natural light. The Suzhou Chapel is at once a display of restraint and a complex spatial sequence. It is deserving of recognition.”

Experience with an academic practice has taught me to appreciate both the value of research and the mandate to push forward the boundaries of professional practice. […] I am aware of the imperative of peer recognition for new and evolving voices in our profession. All projects begin with the potential to be great. When they emerge from construction having succeeded because of (and in spite of) the pressures of process, it is important to celebrate.”
