From the architect: Jennifer Bonner's new ground-up residential project Haus Gables is included in Adjacencies, a group exhibition of building speculations curated by Nate Hume at the Yale School of Architecture. Haus Gables is designed and developed by Bonner's architecture office MALL and is set for completion in Atlanta, GA in late Fall 2018. The exhibition includes drawings, models, and ephemera surrounding the production of Haus Gables. Jennifer Bonner will take part in a gallery talk associated with the exhibition on Thursday, September 13, 2018 at the Yale Architecture Gallery.
In an attempt to rework spatial paradigms of the past, such as Le Corbusier’s free plan and Aldof Loos’s raumplan, Haus Gables offers the roof plan as a way to organize architecture. For this single-family home adjacent to the Atlanta Beltline, a cluster of six gable roofs are combined to form a single roof, which establishes distinct interior spaces by aligning them to the ridges and valleys above. The project engages in the conceptual exploration of materiality through a series of faux-finishes that clad the exterior and parts of the interior in opposition to expectations.
Adjacencies exhibits building speculations representing a wide range of interests and overlapping tendencies that illustrate components of the contemporary architectural zeitgeist, including a re-investigation of architecture’s history, the cultivation of new audiences, and explorations of the act of building. Projects that privilege physicality, surprise, playfulness, curiosity, and pleasure in search of a wider public are represented in drawings, details, renderings, videos, gifs, apps, photographs, and physical models. The exhibition also features work by other emerging firms, including Young & Ayata, Medium Office, MILLIONS, Besler & Sons, The Los Angeles Design Group, SPORTS, Mira Henry, BairBalliet, Endemic Architecture, The Open Workshop, T+E+A+M, First Office, and Norell/Rodhe.
