Overview

This book features the advanced studios of Chris Perry, Eric Bunge and Mimi Hoang, and Liza Fior with Katherine Clarke assisted by Andrei Harwell. The research and projects grapple with the issues of how to insert new pieces of architecture both as infrastructural and individual cultural buildings, into sites where existing physical and social issues are at conflict. The design solutions in each case—Cern headquarters in Geneva, the Périphérique of Paris, and the London 2012 Olympic site—unify the urban design and piece together the sites as bits of urban acupuncture creating new amenities and resources for the future. The book includes interviews with the architects about the work of their professional offices and essays on the themes of their advanced studios.
