"We’ve always looked at how the translation from representation to making has occurred traditionally, and how that has changed with digital technologies—especially CNC and robotics—becoming more prevalent." Brandon Clifford's practice with Wes McGee, Matter Design, is featured in the 'Next Progressives' series by Architect Magazine. Brandon holds the Belluschi Lectureship at MIT.

In light of the Boston 2024 Olympic Bid: http://www.mascontext.com/issues/18-improbable-summer-13/futures-expo-boston-76/ via PhD Candidate Michael Kubo. "Urban planning in Boston since the 1970s has often lacked the comprehensive scope needed to frame questions about its development at the total scale of the city. In order to renew this debate, an exhibition by over,under at BSA Space in April 2012 recovered the history of a visionary, seemingly improbable moment from the city’s past that projected a radical urban future: a megastructure that would have extended into Boston Harbor as the site for a World’s Exposition in 1976."
