Help kick start the suckerPUNCH + land of tomorrow exhibition that will feature twenty student projects from around the United States that explore the possibilities of fabrication and material experimentation at the start of the 21st century. Slated for Fall 2012, this exhibition will have it all – “transmogrifications, strange sensations, primal textures, unfamiliar geometries, self-propagating architectural species, augmented atmospherics, vicissitudinous juxtapositions, reinvented building typologies, sensual pleated skins, a crisis or two, physiologically responsive interfaces, threshold blurring gizmos, and plenty of robots”.

If funding is successful, this exhibition will provide the rare opportunity to display the exploration and research from multiple U.S. architecture schools in one location. The three top projects will have prototypes fabricated by Drura Parrish at PR&vD.

The exhibition will open at the Land of Tomorrow Gallery (Lexington, Kentucky) in September 2012, with plans for it to travel to other cities, including Los Angeles, New York City, and Chicago.

The three finalists whose projects will be fabricated as prototypes are: Ivan BERNAL, Ji-Young YOON, and Donovan Ballantyne.
