Domestic Mutations in the Age of the Sharing Paradigm presents Professor Lawrence Blough’s architectural proposals for new types of collective living space influenced by emerging social and economic collaborative models. Contesting accepted delineations between work and leisure, nuclear family and post-familial life, four organizations are developed around different co-live and co-work scenarios.
Blough is the inaugural 2018-19 Structurist Fellow and the recipient of a new Creative Research Grant from the University of Saskatchewan. The fellowship was recently established to propagate the legacy of The Structurist, an international, interdisciplinary journal founded in 1960 by Eli Borstein that addresses art, architecture, ecology, culture and communication.
Copies of the 60th anniversary edition of The Structurist will be offered for sale at the event and Bornstein will be in attendance to sign them.
Blough is Principal of GRAFTWORKS Design Research and professor at Pratt Institute School of Architecture. Before founding GRAFTWORKS in 1999, he worked in the offices of Peter Eisenman and was a senior associate at Architecture Theatre, a nonprofit architecture and urbanism foundation. His projects and collaborations have been widely published both in the U.S. and abroad and have been exhibited at institutions such as Temple University, MoMA, Locust Projects in Miami, CAUE 92 in France and Yale University.
