BRACKET [goes soft]


This just in: Bracket (an annual publication documenting issues overlooked yet central to our cultural milieu that have evolved out of the new disciplinary territory at the intersection of architecture, environment and, now, digital culture) has just announced the selected projects to be featured in their second publication. Roughly three dozen projects were selected from a pool of almost 300 entries. The projects in the chosen collection demonstrate an exciting range of soft urban interventions ranging from flexible energy harvesting networks, mobile structures, to new networks of civic information. Check more of the field-changing projects at and congratulations to all the winners.
