Best Sandwiches

Jennifer Bonner, MALL

Architects have recently talked about mountains, candy and puppets. They used to talk about sheds, blobs and fields. We are interested in talking about sandwiches. Or is the sandwich merely a stand-in to generate a discourse in architecture around the problem of the extrusion? Borrowing from past and recent history’s best practices for assembling sandwich architecture, Best Sandwiches is a design and research project in search of novel spatial stacks. The nine sandwiches on display are furry, yet sometimes glittery, colorful, yet sometimes too much color, and undergo a close reading of the following sandwich types: grilled cheese, BLT, hamburger, dagwood, and sub sandwich, to name a few.
