Infoam Student Projects

Here’s some selections from last year’s ARCH 401 studio here at UNM. The studio description reads:

Infoam is a research-based investigation into the relationship between urban context and architecture. The studio examines relationships between urban behavior, big data and architectural design through the Innovate Albuquerque initiative. Infoam uses a data-based approach to demonstrate how architecture can affect local economy and support an urban agenda.

Starting by researching the city of Albuquerque as a whole, the students proposed urban strategies that were then supported by architectural interventions. A reference to the work of Peter Sloterdijk, the title Infoam is meant to suggest an architecture that is a connective tissue between our own individual spheres, a foam capable of providing urban conditions for the 21st century.
