Pamphlet Architecture, Ltd. announced the winner of the Pamphlet Architecture 30 competition, an international competition that called for “proposals aimed at inventive new infrastructure for the United States.” The winning entry, entitled “Coupling: Strategies for Infrastructural Opportunism,” was submitted by InfraNet Lab/Lateral Office and will be published as number 30 in the critically acclaimed Pamphlet Architecture series of publications. InfraNet Lab/Lateral Office – a nonprofit research collective – is composed of Mason White, Lola Sheppard, Neeraj Bhatia and Maya Przybylski. The winning entrants will receive a $2,500 grant to develop their proposal for publication as Pamphlet 30 in September 2011.
The Pamphlet Architecture 30 jury consisted of Kevin Lippert, publisher, Princeton Architectural Press; Steven Holl, architect; Toshiko Mori, architect; Michael Bell, architect; Stan Allen, architect; Marion Weiss, architect; and Jennifer Thompson, editorial director, Princeton Architectural Press. According to the jury, “Coupling” locates new, small-scale potentials for infrastructure in unexpected places. The winning entry also illustrates a collection of projects with strong graphics, design, and thematic organization.
Founded in 1977 by architects Steven Holl and William Stout to promote the work and ideas of up-and-coming architects, Pamphlet Architecture has served as a laboratory for such notable architects and theorists as Lebbeus Woods, Zaha Hadid, Steven Holl, Lars Lerup, Mark Mack, and Michael Sorkin.
