Arctic Food Network. Design Techniques by Lateral Office

Lateral Office. Arctic Food Network. Nunavut, Canada, 2012

"...Considering technique in architecture is an opportunity to consider the very disciplinarity of architecture. We wanted, therefore, to use this opportunity to provoke fundamental questions: What is the disciplinary field in which we operate today? What are the tools and modes to operate within this field? Disciplinarity has traditionally been about knowledge production. It was Foucault who identified discipline as a “system of control in the production of discourse*.

English scholars Shumway and Messer–Davidow unpacked the historical lineage of disciplinarity articulating in 1991: “To call a branch of knowledge a discipline was to imply that it was rigorous and legitimate. However, the name does not reveal that knowledge is produced in regulating or controlling knowledge producers, nor that the training of disciplines produces the acceptance of disciplinary methods and truths**...”

Text extracted from the article "Undisciplined" (a+t 45 Design Techniques), where Lola Sheppard and Mason White explain the Lateral Office design techniques. Specifically, those applied in the Arctic Food Network project, among others.

a+t 45 Design Techniques looks at different approaches to the creative moment. Authors such as Lacaton & Vassal, Langarita-Navarro, Momoyo Kaiyima and SO-IL reveal their modus operandi, explain how they tackle the project and discuss motivation, devices, influences, justifications, effects and the origins of their design techniques.
