MEDIA REVIEWS
"This unique survey features eleven experimental works, from their 2010-11 Skating Shelters for Winnipeg's frozen Red River, to the nearly complete Temple of Light overlooking British Columbia's Kootenay Bay. Each work is presented more as research than resolution. Initiated in response to competition calls, serendipitous opportunities and sustained architectural questions, these projects are largely free from the usual client-driven constraints, and share a freedom to fail constructively..The projects collected in Material Operations are the products of curiosity about worldly phenomena, balanced by constructive doubt that status quo practice can release the full potential of making and dwelling."
- Canadian Architect
