“The morphological particularities of the body offer a productive clue via their engagement with architecture, if only that the interface between the human and its environment may begin with the body as a system of parts: the torso, limbs, digits or head all establish a special relationship with the built environment. With the hand as maybe one of the most dexterous instruments of intelligence, it is also the most prone to architectural engagement, not only in the tactility of surfaces around us, but in the mechanical protocols of hardware, instruments, and vessels that mediate between the human and its environment: doorknobs, pulls, flatware, cups, and many industrial design artifacts are the first registration of such encounters.”

Jonathon Anderson and Lois Weinthal’s new book Digital Fabrication in Interior Design: Body, Object, Enclosure has been released! The book includes an essay entitled “The Figure in Translation” by Nader Tehrani.

Available for order HERE.

“Among the many tendencies that characterize design thinking, one stands out from a material perspective: in identifying a single medium through which to work, the architect is able to force invention from within a genre, and in doing so, to radicalize its ability to transform, evolve, and innovate. There is a seductive allure to the idea that one might entirely conceive of a project in cross-laminated timber”

Jennifer Bonner and Hanif Kara’s new book Blank: Speculations on CLT has been released and includes an essay entitled “Blank Shots: Monolithic Desires and Laminar Inevitabilities” by Nader Tehrani.

TEHRANI TO COMPLETE HIS TENURE AS DEAN,
WITH AN INCREASED FOCUS ON NADAAA

“After eleven years of academic leadership—four at MIT and seven at Cooper Union, I remain deeply committed to teaching and the building of institutions,” said Tehrani. “At the same time, this transition allows me to genuinely immerse myself back into practice over the coming decade; NADAAA has served as a critical mechanism for me to balance out what I do between academic speculation and the practicalities of everyday practice, and this is a time to re-channel those efforts.”
