Design Under Sky discusses landscape architecture, the utilitarian but leaning towards the conceptual, thinking on modern occurrences and peripheral boundaries.  

DUS is the blog and personal design studio of Adam E. Anderson, a designer based out of the East Coast, currently a Critic at the Rhode Island School of Design, and a designer at Landworks Studio.

RISD Facade Media Festival 

We're pretty excited for an open student proposal event to be put on by the AIAS here at RISD; The Media Facade Festival:

This Spring RISD’s newly formed American Institite of Architecture Students(AIAS) brings you the Facade Media Festival – an event exploring building scale projections, the relationship between media and space. This event will follow an afternoon symposium presented by the architecture deparment, Teaching Architecture Beyond the Desktop Horizon.

The event will showcase selected works projected onto the north facade of the BEB, viewed from the parking lot. Performances, visualizations, installations, interventions, any media. The AIAS is accepting submissions until April 1st. (no joke) Submissions might engage questions of architecture/space, technology/media, scale, light etc. Sound accompaniments are welcome. Proposals should account for a 2-10 minute performance. The projection dimensions are roughly 100’ x 75’. Along with the performances, selected student projects will be documented and profiled by some of our media partners.

Projection has been a particular interest to DUS for it's capabilities in spatial context. While contemporary projection technology is powerful in the distance it can cover, we're really looking to advancements in 3D. Add sensing, sound, and light, and our ideas of space manipulation and interaction enter new territories.

We will be at the event and feature some of the nights highlights as well as possibly look at projection work from today's artists.

Its been a minute since last posting, my apologies. But I have a few decent excuses. D.U.S. has since relocated from California to Providence RI where I've been studying/researching art, sound, architecture, and landscape at the Rhode Island School of Design. My focus, as always, is to explore and expand the field of landscape architecture into new realms of disciplines, and RISD provides an ideal environment for this pursuit.

I plan to post some of the interesting student research and design projects that are happening all around me as well as hopefully posting more frequently.

To get things going again I've uploaded Ian Quate's thesis proposal, which he raps (only at risd) about mining, microbiology, and possible futures. Ian is a third year grad in landscape architecture.

Thanks for hanging around.
