what if I take a screen shot everyday and revisit it all in a year, when I'm done with all of this? I keep on making these huge claims, that are in fact simple to do, but always find myself ignoring them.
One of the other studios here have a design for disassembly component that they need to tackle. It strikes me that to tackle that within the context of architecture - and in their case some sort of factory - requires a high degree of future projection. Sure, the same question asks itself, what is our future space conception. It would'nt make sense to develop a design for disassembly strategy that works today, because it is likely to be irrelevant -perhaps inefficient?- come disassembly time. On another note, perhaps disassembly is not disassembling and putting parts in the back of a hundred trucks to ship them to a new home. Or perhaps we do not build for things to last as they used to. Maybe it stops making sense somewhere down the lane.
What is interesting is the parallel when attempting to investigate design for disassembly. While some want to create a view of how the future materializes, others can spend the same -positive or negative- energy in imagining how the future dematerializes. Or ideally, one questions and attempts to answer both simultaneously.
p.s. All studio work is done with Tyson Hosmer, Michael Dosier, and Ryan Szanyi.
