Epistolary Architecture: The Art and Crimes of Jane Doe Interviewee: Ian Erickson & Ryan Shin University: University of California, Berkeley #art #architecture #artitecture #koozarch What questions does the project raise and which does it answer? The project asks what is the narrative potential of architecture. We prefer to think of the project as responding to this question rather than providing an answer to it—a more open ended conversation. In responding to this guiding question the project seeks out alternative mediums to bolster the architect’s representational toolkit and continues to explore crime’s architectural reframing begun by Manaugh and others. The Possible Mediums book describes narratives as graphic stories of real or fictional architecture involving sequential arrangements of language, animations, illustrations, and props. The epistolary format reconciles these various mediums of representational techniques in a non-sequential format, being less like a comic and instead pointing towards something that we feel is more active, exciting, and explicitly architectural.
