An event marking the publication of P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S’ new book, Embedded brings together authors, contributors, mentors and confabulators to discuss some of the most relevant issues haunting contemporary architectural practice and discourse today, such as the perceived divide between progressive design culture, the politics of form, and social responsibility. EMBEDDED is P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S’ long awaited book that reflects on the evolution, actualization and conclusion of certain lineages of design and material research, while signaling the initial stages of others.
Co-directed by Marcelo Spina and Georgina Huljich, this research and collaborative-based practice seeks to move between digital and material expressions. The book includes a collection of more than twenty projects and writings by Spina and Huljich, with contributing essays by Todd Gannon, Marcelyn Gow and John Mcmorrough. Organized by P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S, Los Angeles.
