Lecturer Mohamed Sharif will be moderating a panel discussion featuring the OUT THERE DOING IT 2013 participants ALLTHATISSOLID (A.UD M.Arch. I '08 Alumi Alex Chew, Mak Kao, Danielle Wagner, and Heather McGinn), Anna Neimark/First Office, Bryony Roberts, and Design, Bitches on Thursday, October 17, 2013 at 7pm as part of the Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design IN/OUT, HERE/THERE programming.
ALLTHATISSOLID is a collaborative design and research practice based in Los Angeles, Kuala Lumpur, and Seoul. Strewn across the Pacific Rim, each project uniquely choreographs its own set of contemporary agendas while absorbing local complexities. Our design approach biases an open and interdisciplinary process that encourages material and cultural contamination so that every architectural response is thickly layered. In doing so, these environments expand the field of possibilities and intensities of interaction available to sympathetic users and constituencies. As the firm’s name suggests, our research and practice seeks to develop objects, architecture, and urbanism across scale and typologies so that pre-existing categories mutually inform and distort one another. This approach privileges an understanding of the built and natural environment as ecologies of responsive and informational systems. Through methods of projective modeling and innovative fabrication techniques, ALLTHATISSOLID hopes to find new social and sensational ensembles within the designed world.
