The third evening of the annual Emerging Voices lecture series features Frank Jacobus and Marc Manack of SILO AR+D; and E.B. Min and Jeffrey L. Day of Min | Day. Emerging Voices spotlights individuals and firms based in the United States, Canada, or Mexico with distinct design voices and the potential to influence the disciplines of architecture, landscape architecture, and urbanism.
Frank Jacobus and Marc Manack co-founded SILO AR+D in 2009 as Principals. SILO AR+D “explores architectural presence through the effects of appearance, reappearance, and disappearance and views the architectural act of becoming visible as a form of theater, a performance born of energy harnessed from public environments.” Recent projects include Mood Ring House residence in Fayetteville, Arkansas; the Super Sukkah pavilion in St. Louis; and North Presbyterian Church in Cleveland.
E.B. Min and Jeffrey L. Day formed Min | Day in 2003 as founding Principals. E.B. Min is based in San Francisco and has taught at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco. Jeffrey L. Day is based in Omaha and teaches at University of Nebraska. Min | Day believes that “architecture is a spatial and material practice in the service of human habitation.” And as such, the studio seeks to create “infrastructure for social engagement, whether that be in the private world of the home, the collaborative landscape of the office or institution, or the collective realm of the city.” Recent projects include the Blue Barn Theatre & Boxcar 10 in Omaha and the House on Lake Okoboji residence in Iowa. In 2014, Min | Day worked with TEF Design on proposals for new BART/Muni station entrances in San Francisco.
Billie Tsien is a co-founding principal architect of Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects | Partners and President of The Architectural League of New York. She served on this year’s Emerging Voices committee.
