Our history books speak volumes about classical architecture and aesthetics, but what is funk architecture? This exhibition features drawings, animations, and a six-foot-long physical model of a speculative multi-family, co-housing complex. The design research uses funk music and aesthetics as a point of departure, exploring how “ingredients” of funk (rhythm, improvisation, and groove) provide analogical provocations for the architectural co-production of pattern, color, and texture. How might funky design methodologies liberate aspects of our design processes that we may take for granted, and what opportunities for spatial intimacy and companionship might funky architecture offer to the world?
