Materializing the invisible: A return to form-making

By Petia Dorian Morozov

Abstract

In an era of information technology and dematerialization, our sense for materiality is significantly jeopardized. It is particularly disturbing when placed within the context of architecture--a mode of form-making typically fixed on the objective of building. In light of this, my thesis pursues questions of stability and contingency as agents of form-making; what can be done to render invisible, dematerialized forces as visible and tangible? My investigations suspend in a design proposal positioned on the edge between city grid and highway, where flows relative to this site were studied and re-invented as a source for form-making
