Soft Launch

The long-awaited second installment of Bracket, a co-publication of Archinect, InfraNet Lab, and ACTAR, is finally here. The new issue is themed around "soft systems" in architecture and landscape design, or "systems, networks and technologies that are responsive, adaptable, scalable, non-linear, and multivalent," as the editors describe it. The resulting soft-systems issue was edited by Lola Sheppard and Neeraj Bhatia of InfraNet Lab, with guest input from Benjamin Bratton, Julia Czerniak, Jeffrey Inaba, Philippe Rahm, Charles Renfro, and myself.

This month, Bracket will be hosting no fewer than three launch parties for the issue: Thursday, February 7th, at the University of Waterloo School of Architecture in Cambridge, Ontario, at 11am; Sunday, February 17th, at Architecture Center Houston, with presentations by Neeraj Bhatia, Scott Colman, Ned Dodington, and Christopher Hight; and this Friday, February 8th, at Studio-X NYC in Manhattan, kicking off at 6:30pm, with short presentations by Neeraj Bhatia, Fionn Byrne, Michael Chen, Leigha Dennis, Sergio Lopez-Pineiro, Chris Perry, and a few brief comments of my own about the guest-editorial process. The Studio-X event is free and open to the public, and takes place at 180 Varick Street, Suite 1610; information about the other events can be found through the links, above.
