Harvard GSD Talks: Innovate Lecture | April 12, 2016
Megan Panzano, MArch ’10 “The Edge”
The edge is framed as a potent site of command over contingencies. It is the seat from which the architect may best be able to invite in different logics, with new temporal variation, to mingle with and recode patterns of use, experience, and tectonic definition already familiar. The work presented will include various experiments with spaces capable of operating at the edge of control – enabling and registering specific contingent conditions through architectural delineation. The title also refers to the periphery, where the presented projects hail from or marginal actions that are centralized in the work and investigated as a motivating force. The talk prompts: the edge can be a favorable margin.
