While we have been remiss in updating our website for a while, it doesn't mean we haven't been hard at work. Three recent project galleries have been added to the site: OSWall (version 2.0), Hexwall, and Kinetic Commons (our winning competition entry with VJAA, Diane Willow and VAA Engineering). You can go directly to those project pages by clicking on the names above. We'll have more announcements soon.
HouMinn returns to Parsons the New School for Design as part of the Global Issues in Design lecture series. The HouMinn lecture will be held on Tuesday October 11th, 6:00pm at the Tishman Auditorium, 66 West 12th Street in Manhattan. Thanks to Susan Yelavich for the invitation!
An essay by Marc and Blair appears in the recently published book Matter: Material Processes in Architectural Production, edited by Gail Peter Borden and Michael Meredith. The essay, titled "Built to Change: A Case for Disintegration and Obsolescence," positions HouMinn's prototype work in relationship to conventional stick frame construction and makes a case for an architecture that is organically rebuilt many times over in its lifetime (think human skin). You can order the book here.
