bricolage

"towering", was awarded "honorable mention" at the capitol hill arts workshop and second place at the district arts gallery

As an architect I have an interest in bricolage: the assembling of form using what is available. As Claude Lévi-Strauss notes, bricolage is a kind of internal improvisation that at once is a creative act but simultaneously excites ingenuity. Architects assemble both materially and conceptually and, at the same time, participate in encrusting others’ work or witness their own work acquire unanticipated encrustations. Influenced by architectural fantasies of Yakov Chernikhov and Andy Goldsworthy’s assemblages. As bricoleurs, architects engage a cyclical analysis and synthesis process in which they take what is given, digest it and then synthesize it into a new form. Likewise, there is no overall preconceived plan in the pieces but simply beginnings. It’s not exactly clear where and when it’s supposed to end or be finished.
