Felipe Sepúlveda and Bárbara Barreda lead the architectural systems design research studio BASE studio, based in Chile. They develop an architecture oriented towards non-conventional geometrical, material, and spatial formulations that are able to accommodate the challenges and opportunities of contemporary life. Their methods are based on a parametric/systemic-thinking approach towards architectural design systems that are informed by both digital tools and physical prototypes; allowing for more versatile and innovative solutions, adaptable to a diversity of scales, materials, as well as programmatic, economic, and social contexts.
Jennifer Newsom and Tom Carruthers lead DREAM THE COMBINE, a creative practice, based in Minneapolis, MN and Ithaca, NY. They create site-specific installations exploring metaphor, imaginary environments, and perceptual uncertainties that cast doubt on our known understanding of the world. The work is deeply collaborative. They investigate the conceptual overlaps in art, architecture, and cultural theory through structures that disrupt assumed dichotomies and manipulate the boundary between real and illusory space.
