“As a two-dimensional surface, the rug is a spatial medium for architects to experiment with the interior of architecture as both a spatial but also graphic condition. In this collection of rugs, we sought to explore the relationship between plans, elevations, and the possible three-dimensional applications of the rug as a two-dimensional graphic medium.”

“Architects have a seemingly unlimited faith in the power of the grid, a mastering system that has become dominant in a significant portion of the modern American cityscape. The set of drawings used in the design of this collection of rugs explores the potential of the contemporary grid and vibrant colors. “
Based on recent drawings from his “Resonances” series these rugs were created in response to the architecture of various relational sites of social exchange that make up the urban environment. Skyscrapers and skylines, towers and buildings, zones, paths, and parks, inform and are recast in a series of overlapping, repeating, reformulated geometries, systems of exchange articulated through the reverberation of form. Focusing on architectural relationships, these works were produced in conversation with cities that bear a diverse history of the built form in their articulation of spatial dynamics and representational politics.
