UCLA’s M.Arch. II program, SUPRASTUDIO, launches at IDEAS satellite campus in Playa Vista in Fall 2013, with studios led by Frank Gehry, Greg Lynn, and Thom Mayne. To expand the boundaries of architectural practice, a new research based focus was developed, utilizing architecture education as a platform to advance experimentation and cross-disciplinary collaboration among professors, students, and industry partners. The summer studio Interface Interlace, led by IDEAS Technology Director Guvenc Ozel, investigates the merger between the digital and the physical realms through an exploration of three modes of architectural thinking: translation, iteration, and animation. Divided into three modules and led by the individual SUPRASTUDIO instructor, students engaged in a thorough urban analysis of the Los Angeles River as its unifying context.
