Sarah Whiting: Engaging autonomy (November 6, 2013)

Sarah Whiting begins by identifying a trend in current architecture in which both theory and the object are minimized. She argues this betrays a simplistic sense of object and context, and autonomy and relations. As a counter-example, she discusses IIT campus within the context of Chicago’s South Side, and her own projects–including a facade study for twelve towers in Xingsha, and entries in the Kaohsiung Pop Music Center competition (2010), and the Taichung Cultural Center (2013), and the Golden House (2010).
