Joyce Hwang’s letter concerning the City of Buffalo is included in Letters to the Mayor, an exhibition at Storefront for Art and Architecture that presents fifty letters written by international architects to the political leaders of more than 20 cities around the world. Each letter provides a space of reflection for the architect to present ideas and methodologies and express some of the concerns and desires that might contribute to action within political spheres. April 30 – May 24, 2014.

NEXT NATURE

“Living Among Pests – Designing for the Biosynthetic City” is published in  Next Nature.

“Biosynthetic design is usually discussed at the scale of the individual product. But the city – itself a mixture of synthetic interventions within biological systems – can be considered a more complex piece of biosynthetic design. Conversations in urban planning have moved away from blunt engineering and the evisceration of species to serve human convenience, towards balanced management and co-existence. Joyce Hwang discusses the challenges for designers, and gains for citizens, of living in a truly biosynthetic city”

The essay originally appeared in Volume Magazine #35.

AWESOME WITHOUT BORDERS
