at the crossroads of architecture and digital media
Ambiguous: Open to having several possibilities and an inconclusive direction when creating a trajectory that lacks clarity or definiteness resulting in a vast, indeterminate fuzz
"To be con-temporary does not necessarily mean to be present, to be here-and-now; it means to be “with time” rather than “in time.” “Con-temporary” in German is “zeitgenössisch.” As Genosse means “comrade,” to be con-temporary--zeitgenössisch—can thus be understood as being a “comrade of time”—as collaborating with time, helping time when it has problems, when it has difficulties. "
The unpacking of the term ambiguous allows us to contextualize and critique the area or fuzz that exists between the intersection of entities related to the urban realm. Our focus will begin to explore and challenge the intersections of architecture and urbanism, architecture and politics, practice and academia, and our currently feelings as we transition from students to professionals. This idea of ambiguity and contradictions within architecture and urbanism does not seem to be a new one, but it also remains ever evolving. We will not work in absolutes or pretend to be experts, yet this will be a place that we can actively share our new ideas, research, and critiques of multiple aspects of these disciplines as we continue to find our way through the ambiguous fuzz.
Who we are...
We are architecture students at the University of Nebraska who are looking for unique ways to share our work and ideas, and also create new ways to have conversations about these ideas. We felt like architecture and urban conversations do not happen enough outside of an educational context for designers in our position.
Our goal is to continually ask questions about architecture’s relationship with the world around us, and speculate about new ways that relationship can be leveraged through design.
