Grids, Plans, Profiles and other Possible Mediums

Lecturer's Abstract 

Kyle Miller presents his most recent design research and discusses Possible Mediums, a book co-authored with Kelly Bair, Kristy Balliet, and Adam Fure that introduces a collection of sixteen speculative design mediums by emerging architects.

Possible Mediums arranges projects according to shared technical and aesthetic traits, creating a vibrant taxonomy of contemporary design in the United States. Kyle's lecture articulates how Possible Mediums, as a curatorial project, establishes design as a collective endeavor propelled by the open exchange of ideas and techniques. Possible Mediums does not offer a systematic theory, a manifesto, or a banal survey, but rather a projection of architecture and knowledge to come.


Kyle Miller is an Assistant Professor at Syracuse University School of Architecture, New York, former Director of the Architecture Program at Syracuse University in Florence, and Co-Founder and Author of Possible Mediums. His design research has been supported by the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, included in the AIA Emerging Professionals Exhibition, and shown at the A+D Museum in Los Angeles.

Kyle's writing has been published in Monu, Pidgin, Project, Offramp, PLAT, Room One Thousand, and the Journal for Architectural Education. He previously taught at the University of Kentucky and the University of California, Los Angeles, and worked professionally in Milwaukee, Los Angeles, and most recently for Ben van Berkel and Caroline Bos with UNStudio in Amsterdam. 

Kyle is a graduate of the University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning and the University of California, Los Angeles Department of Architecture and Urban Design.
