Edward P. Bass Distinguished Visiting Architecture Fellowship 12

Jonathan Rose, Sara Caples, Everado Jefferson

The task for this studio was to design a new mixed-use building across from the Apollo Theatre on 125th Street in Harlem.
The developer Jonathan Rose, with New York-based architects Sara Caples and Everardo Jefferson challenged their Yale students to design a sustainable mixed-use residential and cultural building, with housing for retired jazz musicians, restaurants, and media spaces, on the last cityowned parcel.
The studio questioned issues of cultural representation versus the mutability of the site’s ethnic anchorings. It requires the designer to consider each space from the user’s perspective. And it demands high standards of sustainable design, headed towards net zero, that support a more satisfying occupant experience, with maximal use of controlled daylight and natural ventilation.
The book features interviews with those on the studio juries including Robert A. M. Stern, Alexander Garvin, and Vincent Chang.

The Blindspot Initiative

9781938740237_FC

Design Resistance and Alternative Modes of Practice

José Sanchez

This book documents the professional work of twenty-one design practices that are expanding their respective fields and hybridizing traditional design outputs through the intersection of other disciplines.
By blurring the boundaries between fields, design innovation can become more aware of the systemic interdependencies that often live in our current disciplinary blind spots. From the critique of competitions, The Blindspot Initiative attempts to create an alternative loop between design and resources, one in which the propagation and documentation of new knowledge developed in design research can economically sustain its production, generating a positive feedback loop between innovation and knowledge propagation.
Texts by Jenny Wu, Jason Kelly Johnson, David Gerber, Mustafa El-Sayed, and Kate Davies, introduce the designers by offering alternative perspectives on the contributions of the field of robotics, software, film, product design and prototype thinking, to the practice of architecture.

Exhibiting Architecture: A Paradox?

Exhibiting Architecture_Front Cover

Eeva-Liisa Pelkonen with Carson Chan and David Tasman

The book brings together a collection of essays that are an outgrowth of the eponymous symposium at Yale School of Architecture. It addresses issues relating to exhibiting architecture as formulated by architects, historians, and curators.The ambition of exhibiting architecture entails paradoxes: how to

The ambition of exhibiting architecture entails paradoxes: how to exhibit something as large and complex as a building or a city, and how to communicate something as elusive as an architectural experience that unfolds in space and time. To be sure, architecture poses a challenge to exhibition as a medium. What is it we exhibit when we exhibit architecture: should we be satisfied with photographs of buildings and sites or should we aim to display whole buildings or fragments and models of them? These were among the questions the organizers posed to the group of architectural and art historians, practicing architects, and curators who were invited to participate and contribute essays to the book. Their discussions address the exhibition as a medium and challenge the preconceived idea of what architecture is by examining a range of possibilities as to how architecture is made, experienced, and discussed.

Analytic Models in Architecture

Yale Analytic Model Cover

Emmanuel Petit

Analytic Models in Architecture documents Yale School of Architecture student work from the undergraduate studio course “The Analytic Model: Descriptive and Interpretive Systems in Architecture,” taught by Emmanuel Petit from 2005 to 2014.

The projects are organized to a set of ten conceptual categories that emphasize varying strategies of formal analysis: Aggregation, Cinematics, Condensation, Diagrammatics, DNA, Fluid Interlocking, Fragmentation, Morphology, Seriality, and Thickened 2-D. Five critical essays focus on particular aspects of analysis in architecture: Anna Bokov about the Soviet avant-garde, Matthew Claudel about agency as the crucial qualifier, Kyle Dugdale draws an analogy to Homeric analysis, exposing the web of deceit that underlies the ostensibly dispassionate analytic exercise, John McMorrough asks what constitutes architectural analysis after close reading is over, and Emmanuel Petit reviews the different ideologies that concepts of analysis have occupied in architectural theory throughout modernity.

Edward P. Bass Distinguished Visiting Architecture Fellowship 08

Douglas Durst, Bjarke Ingels

The Bass Fellowship at the Yale School of Architecture was led by Douglas Durst of the Durst Organization, a leading New York firm known for spearheading sustainable high-rise developments, architects Bjarke Ingels and Thomas Christoffersen of BIG, and Yale faculty member Andrew Benner. The studio explored potential synergies between public and private programs in the design of inhabited bridges crossing major waterways in New York City. The featured projects here demonstrate a diverse range of approaches for combining residential, cultural, and commercial activities on complex and dense infrastructural sites in imaginative and productive ways. The book includes interviews with the professors, an essay by Bjarke Ingels and the studio projects.

Rethinking Chongqing: Mixed-Use and Super-Dense

Edward P. Bass Distinguished Visiting Architecture Fellowship 07

Vincent Lo, Kohn Pederson Fox Associates

Rethinking Chongqing presents the work of a Edward P. Bass Studio at the Yale School of Architecture, co-taught by real estate developer Vincent Lo, founder and chairman of Shui-On Land, the Yale Bass Fellow, and Paul Katz, James von Klemperer, and Forth Bagley, managing principal, design principal, and senior associate, respectively, of the international architecture firm Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates.

The site of the studio project is the soon to be redeveloped site of the central rail terminal, a critical nexus of infrastructure located near the riverside that offers rich possibilities for re-thinking the relationship between transit, public space, and mixed-use program in the city. The studio investigated a diverse range of proposals for new scales, typologies, and program mixes play in shaping new paradigms for the development of western China’s emerging mega-cities.

Edward P. Bass Distinguished Visiting Architecture Fellowship 10

John Spence, Andy Bow, and Patrick Bellew

A Sustainable Bodega/Hotel in Rioja presents the studio of the Yale Edward P. Bass Distinguished Visiting Architecture Fellowship taught by John Spence, entrepreneur and chairman of Karma Resorts worldwide with architect Andy Bow, a senior partner at Foster & Partners in London; environmental engineer Patrick Bellew, principal of Atelier Ten, London; and Timothy Newton of the Yale faculty.

The studio proposed designs for a world-class winery and hotel complex in Rioja, Spain where wineries are both vernacular and exuberant in design. The students were challenged to address social, economic, and environmental sustainability in a holistic and integrated way. The project resulted in a range of strategies to sustainably harvest, engage local workforce, integrate landscape, and source materials responsibly. The project features attractions and symbiotic food production to facilitate tourist visits. Edited by Henry Chan and Nina Rappaport the book is designed by MGMT
