Architecture Inserted

Robert Stern, Nina Rappaport, Chris Perry, Eric Bunge, Mimi Hoang

Architecture Inserted features the advanced studios of Chris Perry, Eric Bunge and Mimi Hoang, and Liza Fior with Katherine Clarke—the Louis I. Kahn Visiting Assistant Professors at Yale. The research and projects grapple with the issues of how to insert new pieces of architecture both as infrastructural and individual cultural buildings, into sites where existing physical and social issues are at conflict. The design solutions in each case—CERN headquarters in Geneva, the Périphérique of Paris, and the London 2012 Olympic site—unify the urban design and piece together the sites as bits of urban acupuncture creating new amenities and resources for the future. The book includes interviews with the architects, essays about their themes, and the work of the students in the advanced studios at Yale.
