A-Frame critically investigates the social, economic, and political issues that frame the fields of architecture and development. A fourteen-member collective, A-Frame aims to establish a cooperative platform for young architects to share resources, incubate projects, and engage with alternative forms of practice. Since its beginning in 2014 in the studios of Architecture, Urban Planning & Real Estate programs at Columbia GSAPP, A-Frame has realized projects in a broad range of media: conferences, workshops, publications, websites, open source tools, and graduate seminars.
At the GSAPP incubator, A-Frame is investigating alternative means of housing in the US through academic research and venture capital pitching (see @building_equities and CoHN). A conference series called “Future of Alchemy” studies materially inventive contemporary practices to expand the agency of the GSAPP skill-set.
