New Museum Addition, 2019.

The program hybridizes two institutional forms towards complicating the set of object, viewer, and participant relations. It proposes additions to the New Museum in New York City where novel building form, material, terms of engagement accelerate and slow, and thicken and thin the alleged transparency of the architectural work.

Questions in architecture shift emphasis from the apparent smoothing of an object, to calibrating the multiple diverse passages mediated, accelerated, toward disappearing and slowing toward solidification. The studio experiments with producing variable speeds across multiple trajectories and propose possible spaces, materials and performance. The explicit ambition is to stress architecture’s reliance on its internalized and conventionalized set of media actions and to open other forms of awareness.
