Full Description
Höweler + Yoon Architecture, founded in 2002 and based in Boston, gained instant international recognition for their sensational, competition-winning lighting entry for the 2004 Athens Olympics. From that, the firm’s impressive body of work has been growing to expands the scope of design beyond disciplinary boundaries, and winning them numerous national and international awards. Verify in Field is Höweler + Yoon Architecture's second monograph. Its title derives from notational convention on architectural drawings to indicate that the information is incomplete, subject to unknown conditions in the field. And so the book takes verification as a lens to view and act on the world. For both disciplinary and legal reasons, the instruments of design—drawings, models and prototypes—operate on the world at a distance. Techniques of prototyping, measurement, feedback, negotiation, and intervention inform the diverse output of the studio. Projects include: an interactive swing-set; the Memorial for Enslaved Laborers at UVA; a submersible outdoor classroom in Philadelphia; the MIT Museum; a highrise tower in Boston, and a pedestrian bridge in Shanghai. Verify in Field presents recent work of the studio through a series of essays on contemporary means of verification: Means and Methods, The Public Realm, Energy and Environments, The Construction Detail, and Social Media. These themes are echoed in conversations with collaborators, historians, and theorists: Adam Greenfield, Nader Tehrani, Kate Orff, Daniel Barber and Ana Miljački.
