The competition for Pamphlet Architecture 33 asked previous authors in the series to nominate the architects and theorists whose work represents the most exciting design and research in the field today. The second of two winning entries, the first was published in Spring 2013 as PA 33, was submitted by architects and educators Perry Kulper and Nat Chard. Pamphlet Architecture 34 speculates on how architecture might discuss indeterminate conditions of production through a generative agency of representation. Kulper and Chard explore the indeterminacy of architectural research through drawings that exceed traditional drawing space. Located in two different countries, they communicate by shipping each drawing across geographical borders. As a result the drawing acts as a tactical and conversational medium, providing the architects with new opportunities for the confluence of the uncertain.
  • Founded in 1977 as an alternative to mainstream architectural publishing, Pamphlet Architecture helped launch the careers of architects from Steven Holl and Lebbeus Woods to Zaha Hadid
  • Since 2001, the competition has attracted thousands of participants from around the world
  • This volume's competition solicited nominations from all past Pamphlet authors as well as recent winners


Nat Chard is an architect who teaches at the University of Brighton in the UK

Perry Kulper is an architect who teaches at the University of Michigan.
