  • Spatial Inquiry

    • Authors: Annie Han et al.
      Abstract: We have always found it difficult to practice architecture in the way it was handed down to us by the professional guild and still experience and create architecture the way we found it to be meaningful. It seems to us that space and structure created for no further reason than to be perceived and experienced is a wonderful pursuit which has little commercial use in this cultural economy.

  • Do Ho Suh

    • Authors: Sarah Newman
      Abstract: Do Ho Suh’s use of fabric has a number of different origins. Most directly, he was looking to create a “suitcase home,” that he could pack up and take with him and erect anywhere in an attempt to live in the presence of the places he had left behind. Fabric is light and packable, and it has an ethereal, translucent quality that hints at the structure’s transience; it is a representation of a memory that still feels like memory.

  • Communicating with the Other 99%

    • Authors: Bella Janssens et al.
      Abstract: Our understanding or interest in the design process is not that the architects are a purely service industry, but that the best ideas come out of collaboration, so inevitably desires from both sides of the table are going to not only be satisfied, but something completely new will be made from that combination

  • A Tribute of 4 x 10 Meters

    • Authors: Vanessa Beecroft
      Abstract: The first attempt to make an artwork, one I considered being able to belong to contemporary art, was my food diary. During a period of 10 years I recorded everything I ate daily. While drawings didn’t seem qualifying for what I identify as an avant-garde tool, the diary and its immediate reference did.

  • Six Sites

    • Authors: Stanley Saitowitz
      Abstract: Each city is a manifestation of a specific geography and particular culture, an expression of its singular spot on the globe. This uniqueness, this particular suchness, is its being.

  • Context from Place

    • Authors: Peter Alexander
      Abstract: Peter Alexander casts pieces out of resin, a interest that bloomed unintentionally but something he always felt positive was for him. "Instinctively I would do something, and that would make me want to do something else...[or] something continual to keep going," and for that reason he has continued using the same medium for nearly 50 years. To him, it feels "so natural that it was the only thing I got really excited about, and that was its own authenticity."

  • The Case for an Authentic Growth

    • Authors: Yen Ong
      Abstract: I have sold out since I graduated a little more than two decades ago. My idealistic, younger self would have patently condemned the choices my present self has made since then. Idealism would be the righteous position for a student of architecture to take, one who has been fed stories of famed architects realizing their architectural vision in no other way but theirs, proclaiming an absolute authenticity to their creation, or opt - ing to be financially bankrupt rather than to compromise their talents in service of uninspiring commissions. That was then, and this is now: the authentic identity that drives one’s body of work matures over time and is their inescapable reality.

  • Building between Tides

    • Authors: Julie Brook
      Abstract: In my early thirties I wished to understand my own artistic language better. I chose to live on an uninhabited coastline on the west coast of Jura, North West Scotland, a five-hour walk across moorland. I wanted live in and study the landscape in depth, to discover how I would respond to this environment and how it would influence me over time. To be in solitude. The idea had come fully formed to me when walking and camping the previous year. Taking shelter from a storm I found a cliff arch of cathedral-like proportions and slept the night there, pitching my tent in the lee of its east wall. On waking I knew I would come to live here to work.

  • Real Fake

    • Authors: Robert Mangurian et al.
      Abstract: For this issue of Oz, dedicated to authenticity, a thought came to mind that we might explore one of its antonyms—fake. The moral overtones of faking or duplicating, especially regarding the production of creative practice, are most definitely in place in western culture.

  • Li Hui: From a Nightclub to Eternity

    • Authors: Phil Zheng Cai
      Abstract: The connection between authenticity and Hui’s work can be traced to his understanding of fine art creation in relation to religions. he believes the ability to create is exclusively anthropic. He argues that artists are playing more of a role to replace God in what they create, they invent, and influence. This is the pinnacle of authenticity.

  • The Material Inquiry of Construction

    • Authors: Lawrence Scarpa
      Abstract: The event of a job coming into the office and its completion occurred with such rapid succession that the energy of the design was naturally sustained through the end of construction, buoyed by the adrenaline that comes from producing at a blistering pace in combination of the direct physical contact with the actual materials of that construction. Our current state of practice is quite different. The size of firm, number of projects, their complexity, and associated duration has all increased. Rather than completing buildings in months, projects now frequently span four, five, or six years from inception to completion. The operative words are now “vigilance,” “diligence,” and “tenacity.”

  • The Joys and Challenges of Stickworking

    • Authors: Patrick Dougherty
      Abstract: After thirty years of springing large-scale sapling sculptures into unlikely places, it has become easier for me to distill some of the constants that characterize my work. In that regard, the work is temporary, uses entangle - ment as a simple fastener, employs a drawing style akin to works on paper, always needs a sponsor, capitalizes on volunteer help, and is open to the public during the building phase. Further, the work has always sought to find reciprocity with the sculpture site and, most importantly, to enliven the imagination of the viewers.

  • An Interview with Fuensanta Nieto

    • Authors: Fuensanta Nieto
      Abstract: The vision of our architecture resides in the strength of the ideas, the close relationship with a place, the search for natural light, the creation of a complex space as a combinatory of a limited number of simple elements. Te mission of our work, on the other hand, refects not only my personal interpretation, but also afects the users as well as the city or the landscape.

  • Authentic Space

    • Authors: Elizabeth Turk
      Abstract: There is space between well-worded explanations and fully comprehen - sible meaning. It is in this space that I find “authenticity.” It is here that content is “felt” before intellectualized. My need to speak in a language addressing the layers, the paradox in living, leads me to art. This is authentic. Carving calms me. The focus gives order to thought and emotion. The artifact, the sculpture that remains, is a structure so extreme it seems to defy the constraints inherent to its own material.

  • Activating Architecture

    • Authors: Ben van Berkel
      Abstract: An interview with Ben van Berkel reveals his "[firm belief] is that architecture should primarily be driven by relevance. Design that is truly relevant enables engagement, empowerment and inspiration through urban and architectural conditions. Architects can achieve this by creating choice, chance and a variety of different experiences for the user.

  • Sculpting Public Space

    • Authors: Janet Echelman
      Abstract: It’s different all the time. Many commissions have a pre-established site and a preestablished budget and timeline, and they are searching for an artist. So, in those situations, I come in almost as a lay-person’s anthropologist—a kind of amateur anthropologist—where I explore, and interview, and sketch, and photograph as a means of trying to understand local identity or aspirations for local identity and local materials.

  • Authenticity and Values

    • Authors: Fran Silvestre
      Abstract: In our case, it is not a matter of pri - oritizing our vision or of seeking authenticity in each of the projects. For us, dialogue is very important, which is always present, since the work becomes part of the identity of those who inhabit it. It is an unmistakable expression of your personality or your corporate culture. Likewise, in each project we look for continuity. Continuity with both the environ - ment that we must respect, as well as understood from a spatial and temporal point of view, valuing the architecture that is capable of go - ing through time without becoming obsolete.

  • Addiction

    • Authors: Larry Bell
      Abstract: I have always considered that my work was my teacher. I follow the work. My priority has always been to keep working no matter what. No one needs this kind of study except for the person doing the study. It is not a product, it is the evidence of a series of investigations. I am addicted to working in this manner.

  • Footsteps

    • Authors: Tom Leader
      Abstract: It’s fascinating to learn the stories of how people ended up in the work they do and why....and then how their work changed over their lives. More often than not relationships to mothers and fathers have a lot to do with it. Trying to please them, rebel against them, outdo them, live up to them, remember them. As a teenager, I wanted to write fiction and model myself after Hemingway. I thought I might be good at it and I knew my mother would be gratified, partly because of her own ambitions that weren’t realized.
