7 projects on Edge Effects
Architecture is on edge, architecture is the edge. Far from the utopian visions and formal bombast of the early 21st century, these projects offer no easy solutions to urbanism, infrastructure, or environment. Instead this architecture offers spaces of safety and succor for adolescence and convalescence. It offers simple shelter to both the human and non-human. It saves both factory and fresco alike, inviting memory back into public life. It looks into emptiness with empathy for those technical things which toil tirelessly for us. This is architecture on edge, fragile in its systemicity, as we are and have been and may continue to be.
The 7 projects exhibited are conducted in the context of the Post-Professional M.Arch program at Princeton University School of Architecture where there is a unique opportunity for professionally trained architects to return to the university to pursue a two-year program culminating in a year-long thesis.
The 2022 Post-Professional M.Arch Thesis class is coordinated by Assistant Professor V. Mitch McEwen.
