Albuquerque, New Mexico


Project: 35 º | 106º
The spatial environment that comprises the metropolis of Albuquerque [35º | 106º] is a unique condition that has evolved as a crossroads of culture, architecture and infrastructure. The geography and urban morphology created here is a condition unlike any other in the world. As designers we are faced with the development of new technologies, global information systems and the dilution of cultural specificity. This studio will embark in an architectural study utilizing the metropolis of Albuquerque as a laboratory to probe for conditions that define this unique context. This studio will investigate the context of Albuquerque and produce speculations that challenge our current urban fabric. We are interested in analytically probing the urban context and searching for opportunities where design can improve our environment. Through this reading a series of cartographic mappings will be generated that explore these conditions and a design problem will be formulated that will manifest into a program for development in studio. As designers we have to be fluid in how we operate and design at a multiplicity of scales. The ability to understand how virtual and analog systems are creating new spatial conditions in our environment is critical for designers to understand. This knowledge is essential for developing new design strategies for a better more sustainable social environment.
