Matt Baran Architect

Matt Baran Architect Architecture and Construction Extraction and adaptation are methods for approaching architecture, and the treatment of site and program, that is less expansive than traditional architectural ideologies.

It is part of a notion that architecture is unable to effect change at the level that it has assumed in the past. Instead, the proposition is that architecture can be an extension of existing conditions, offering incremental improvements grafted onto conventional structures or forms... By extracting conditions from a site, the resultant programs, spaces and forms are adapting to the given context as is changes over time... This can occur over a protracted temporal period, or a compressed one. In the more challenging of the two, the response to a rapid degree of change requires architecture to become instantly adaptable. An architecture that can change at such a rapid pace becomes simultaneously site-less and specific to a site condition that recurs. That is, the element that connects is constant change, but it is also a similarity across multiple sites… It is site specific, and formless...
