For more than ten thousand years we have been building things. Some of the oldest known written word deals with the construction of buildings. What can the things that we as individual designers want to build tell us about our own ambitions and desire to enter into this ten-thousand-year-old discussion? The studio course centers around three primary activities: reading, discussing, and making full-scale architectural details. We have read a series of essays, chapters, and selections from pieces of text loosely associated with phenomenology. In the discussions we have attempted to relate ideas from the readings to our own critical practice as designers and active agents in the production of physical culture. Final proposals include both architectural drawings and a written discussion of how the ideas expressed through architectural detail are related to those texts. Exhibition continues through September 18, 2015.

Kindsight utilizes images and words together to express the richness of everyday life, and its moments.
It unravels a simple moment into something so delicate. It portrays the true beauty of the ordinary.
The exhibition: Kindsight came about through a series of emails and responses of friends and associate of the photographer, Robert Zuckerman. Kindsight began has a series of emails between friends and associates in 2002.
KINDSIGHT was later published in 2005 due to its positive response.

“There is only one way to describe what will transpire: We aren’t sharing a product. We are sharing a culture. We are not trying to be the first. We are not trying to be the best. We are just trying to be different. We are just trying to give people an authentic experience.
In the process we also want people who attend our festival to have fun. It’s not a formula… it’s just a lot of common sense… MBKF 2015… it’s coming.
Let’s get ready for a fantastic experience. Thank you in advance for being part of something special with us.”
