Blair Satterfield has co-authored an essay with his HouMinn partner, Marc Swackhamer titled "Built to Change: A Case for Disintegration and Obsolescence." This essay appears in the newly published book "Matter: Material Processes in Architectural Production," edited by Gail Peter Borden and Michael Meredith and published by Rutledge Press.
Professor Satterfield's practice, HouMinn, in collaboration with the architects VJAA and artist Diane Willow, was shortlisted to submit a scheme for the redesign of the Mississippi River Plaza on the University of Minnesota campus. An exhibition of the teams' entries will be on display at the Weisman Art Museum's grand re-opening on October 2, 2011. Teams will present their work to a jury on October 26, when a winner will be decided.
Matthew Soules’ practice MSA is featured in Twenty + Change this year in Toronto, Ontario. Twenty + Change is a biennial exhibition and publication series dedicated to promoting emerging Canadian designers working in architecture, landscape architecture and urban design who are pushing the boundaries of their discipline.
