Proxy No. 13 opens this Thursday at the University of Texas, School of Architecture.
Beta-field began the Proxy Series in 2007 as a set of process-based projects focused on the exploration of emerging technologies as both the material and methodological basis of design. Proxies are constructions that examine the nature of architectural design, production, and theory as a manifestation of programming, processes, procedures, manufacturing and assembly. Each project investigates a discrete set of architectural issues spanning all five of these categories. While each project is guided by its architectural issues, each is allowed the freedom to pursue non-architectural solutions.
Proxy No. 13 is funded, designed, manufactured and assembled by Beta-field and architecture students from the University of Texas in Austin School of Architecture.
