2018 GSAPP Alumni Summer Social

Thu, Aug 9, 2018    7pm

GSAPP Summer Social featured the winners of the 2018 Young Architects Program, Jennifer Newsom and Tom Carruthers, co-founders of Dream The Combine, who spoke about their temporary outdoor installation at MoMA PS1, in conversation with GSAPP faculty member Christoph Kumpusch.

The Young Architects Program (YAP), is an annual competition hosted by The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1 that fosters innovative architecture. Past winners include GSAPP alumni and faculty, Andrés Jaque, The Living, William E. Massie, MOS Architects, nARCHITECTS, Obra Architects, SHoP, SO-IL, WORKac, and Xefirotarch. This year’s winning design, Hide & Seek, by Dream The Combine, in collaboration with Clayton Binkley of ARUP, is currently on view at MoMA PS1 through September 3, 2018.

Dream The Combine is the creative practice of artists and architects Jennifer Newsom and Tom Carruthers, based in Minneapolis. Partners in work and life, they create site-specific installations exploring metaphor, imaginary environments, and perceptual uncertainties that cast doubt on our known understanding of the world. Working with engineer Clayton Binkley of ARUP and a trusted group of fabricators, Dream The Combine investigate the conceptual overlaps in art, architecture, and cultural theory through structures that disrupt assumed dichotomies and manipulate the boundary between real and illusory space. Their work has been featured in The New York Times, Huffington Post, Vancouver Sun, FoxNews, CTV, Metropolis Magazine, Modern Midwest, The Architects Newspaper, and Africana: The Encyclopedia of the African and African-American Experience.
