Carlos Arnaiz

The inaugural monograph of the Brooklyn-based design studio CAZA, celebrating the first five years of the firm.

CAZA: 2011-15, the inaugural monograph of the Brooklyn-based design studio CAZA, celebrates the first five years of the firm, and includes photographs, drawings, building descriptions, essays, and conversations that relate to CAZA’s global architecture and design practice. The book opens with a photo essay by world-renowned photographer Iwan Baan, who documented CAZA’s first internationally acclaimed project, the 100 Walls Church, in Cebu City, Philippines.

With offices in Brooklyn, New York; Bogotá, Colombia; Lima, Peru; and Manila, Philippines, CAZA has emerged as a risk-taking, forward-thinking studio working on a mixture of residential, civic, and corporate projects that are shaping the built environment in cities around the world. The launch of CAZA: 2011–15 will coincide with the opening of La Biennale di Venezia in May 2016, with a special installation at Palazzo Mora in Venice, which will subsequently travel to various cities around the world.

Cornell Journal of Architecture 10

Spirits

Caroline O’Donnell

Issue 10 of the Cornell Journal of Architecture will collect a spectrum of specters from the phenomenal to the digital, and question the role and the possibilities of the spirit in architecture today

In distilling, the small amount of alcohol evaporated during the aging process is known as the angels’ share. at is, while lost to us, the alcohol does not cease to exist, but instead is given to — or taken by — the angels.

Architecture’s own angels’ share—the notion of an absent and intangible other—has too been personi ed. From Genius Loci to Zeitgeist, the gure of the spirit is perhaps the most fundamental component of architecture, even before walls or columns. Whether phenomenal or conceptual, without this ickering spirit, one might say, there is no architecture. As technology enables the virtual realm to be inhabited in more everyday ways, the notion of another kind of spirit becomes more present yet more blurred. e digital, as architecture’s alternate and now ickering specter, skirmishes with architecture’s existing ghosts.

Against the Grain

yale_kahn_07_cover_160307-copy

Louis I. Kahn Visiting Assistant Professorship series

Marcelo Spina, Georgina Huljich, Dan Wood, Lisa Gray, Alan Organschi

Against the Grain, features the work of three studios of the Louis I. Kahn Visiting Assistant Professors at Yale. Marcelo Spina and Georgina Huljich in “Brutal Beauty: Piles, Monoliths and the Incongruous Whole” explored ways to make mute icons through monolithic form so that the buildings were foreign to their context and difficult to read formally for a film center in Los Angeles. Dan Wood in “Boulevard Triumphant: ecological infrastructure, architecture, modernization, and the image of the city” a studio for a civic center in Gabon that challenged the architectural language in Africa beyond the clichés and nostalgia to create an architecture that embodied a new ambition. Lisa Gray and Alan Organschi in “Timber Innovation District: new timber technologies and contemporary high performance wood architecture” researched wood as a material for larger-scale projects for a site on New Haven’s working waterfront, with projects ranging from bridges to manufacturing facilities and multi-family housing. Edited by Jackie Kow and Nina Rappaport the book is designed by MGMT.design and is distributed by Actar D.

Analytic Models in Architecture (Yale)

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.
