Artist in Residence Program 2012
I recently completed my Masters in Architecture from the University of California, Berkeley, where I spent nine months studying small urban spaces in the world’s largest cities as a John K. Branner traveling fellow. My Master’s thesis was a culmination of this research, which I will resume as a Headlands AIR. I currently live and work in San Francisco as a writer, designer, and editor.
While at Headlands
I am interested in a certain type of space which I call a ‘stop.space.’ Sensorily rich, geometrically complex, and functionally ambiguous, these spaces are interstitial fragments that negotiate between the scale of their site and the scale of the human body.
The bunkers offer a provocative network of stop.spaces. While at the Headlands, I will study these fragments—through mapping, measurement, drawing, and 3D modeling—to better understand them as architectural negotiations between a strategic intent, a natural landscape, and the human body. This exploration will allow me to refine a methodology and body of work for publication and teaching.
