ReSource is the twelfth in an annual series of publications that feature work by the winners of the Architectural League’s annual competition for young architects and designers. The 2010 competition theme, “ReSource,” posited that architectural practice relies on resources: disciplinary resources, such as theory and technique; physical resources, such as materials and production technologies; and practical resources, such as coordination planning, and financing. Suggesting that recent global shifts from the financial to environmental crises have demanded the rethinking of resources within architecture, the committee asked entrants to pause and reflect: to measure outdated paths to salvage what remains valid and relevant, while simultaneously reinventing the discipline’s resources anew within an uncertain context.
