Rising stars in Boston's design scene, architects Eric Höweler and J. Meejin Yoon have in a single decade developed a reputation for radical experiments in architectural form. Expanded Practice presents twenty-nine recent projects encompassing a broad range of scales and media.

The projects, divided into distinct but often overlapping research themes, include a museum courtyard program inspired by the Voronoi cell-packing algorithm (PS1 Loop); an outdoor light installation featuring hovering cones that capture and interact with solar energy, rainwater, and sound (Hover); a garment designed to turn inside out as it unravels (Möbius Dress); and a landscape design that weaves technology and texture into an integrated and interactive landscape (Tripanel). Packed with drawings, diagrams, and photographs of each project's design process, Expanded Practice provides an inspirational look into one of the most exciting young firms working in architecture today.
