Implement interface architecture
Moore, Judson Wilkins
Master of Architecture
Implement explores the productive relationships between an architecture of exchange and its connection to existing systems of environmental forces. Integrating organizational and developmental logics of embedded performativity to control and produce urban hydroecologies, Implement seeks to unearth new ways to anchor and instrumentalize overlapping ecological and programmatic adjacencies at effective material and temporal scales. Developed for Houston, Texas, in an environment where 65 inches of annual rain inscribes its territorial elevation with approximately 30% of usable land falling within flood plains, implement operates as an architectural substrate and translational device, incorporating watershed dynamics to collect, remediate and store urban runoff while allowing the simultaneous occupation of architectural program. By leveraging the logics of water control and remediation with developmental strategies and construction techniques, this project proposes a machinic hybrid that produces a new landscape of interchange.
