      • The life Off edge in Havana

        Urban expansion and conserving historical transformation are often in conflict. Phenomenological theories refer to the thought that the body is a product of spatial existence, that it is constituted by its relationship with the space around it and that the body is just a fold of the fabric of space outside itself. The spatial relationships of the world are what create the body (Merleau-Ponty 236).----------- Following phenomenology then, we should examine the translation of the city as not a singular, static surface, but as an intricate tapestry woven together by a transcript of experiences, spaces and limits. It is impossible to expect a singular, orthographic translation between adjacent conversational tensions. And so, the introduction of a third axis can be used to reveal its bodily context. This thesis aims to fundamentally question and generate possibilities of a stimulus for the emergence of the uncontrollable fragments of the city, and how those pieces, composed and understood by their unique individualism, can contribute to the greater order of the city as a 'whole'. Through the analysis and investigation of edge/ boundary conditions between the cultural, sociological, political and historical layers of the city in relationship to the physical/ topological layers of the city; Overlaying such forces suggest a product generating tangible expressions of interrelationships between them which create and define new experiences and systems within the urban context that 'quiet' the conditions of tension and conflict/boundaries within itself. Operating within the homogeneous conditions of the city of La Habana, Cuba, multiple scales will be investigated to discuss the ability to open, attack, and comprehend the conditions of edges, boundaries, landscape, infrastructure, as well as cultural and sociological ideologies to target the conditions of simultaneous decay and expansion evident within the urban fabric of La Habana.

          • Unmade city: Notes on alleys

            myalley.org As part of her research-initiative, The Project for Urban Intimacy, Krista Connerly has been walking, photographing, filming, and writing about the alleys of SE Portland. Along the way she has been in conversation with neighbors about their experiences of these local spaces as well as the alleys we may have grown up around and those encountered in the cultural imagination. Alleys offer a unique opportunity to explore a collision of topics including non-traditional economies, class and gentrification, land use and development, wilderness, boredom, and the poetic role spaces can play in the subconscious of the city. They talk to us about the intersection of public and private space; the necessity of wilderness (both external and internal); things that are hidden (or that we want to hide) and things that are seen. They reveal the ways in which external spaces can evoke internal experiences; and how internal experiences, values, and ideas then get projected onto the places around us. In them we can see a proposal: to override the culture of efficiency, rationality, and self interest with slowness, poetry, and caring about place and others. This project was made possible by a grant through the Regional Arts and Culture Council and was also supported through Resident Residency and Portland Institute for Creative Art's Precipice Fund with the support of The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and Calligram.

                    In his 2014 Design Indaba Conference speaker talk, Cape Town-based architect and artist Stefan van Biljon presented two projects that use drawing as a means to unearth the hidden forces at play in our cities. Both projects are set in Cape Town. The first, KL-Metamatic: Ghost Ship, looks into building a machine that would transform the reclaimed land at the harbour back into ocean. “This idea of transformation from one state to the next, from water into land, became the guiding light of this project,” he says. The second project, Military Urbanism, investigates the history of urban segregation in Cape Town from the time before Apartheid was institutionalised. “This project really represents my attempt to try to unearth the unconscious of Cape Town’s urban divisions.” Van Biljon studied a Masters of Architecture at the University of Cape Town and then a Masters of Architecture II at the Cooper Union in New York. His work attempts to break down the beliefs we hold about the cities we live in.
