MALL —
Info

  1. Business Matters 
  • MALL stands for Mass Architectural Loopty Loops. Or Miniature Angles & Little Lines. Or Maximum Arches with Limited Liability—an acronym with built-in flexibility.
  • MALL uses the acronym, not to be quick or flippant, but because our architectural interests shift for each project. 
  • MALL is committed to projects that hack typologies, take creative risks, reference popular culture, and invent representation.
2. Background
  • Born in Alabama (b. 1979), Jennifer Bonner is Associate Professor of Architecture and Director of the Master in Architecture II Program at Harvard University Graduate School of Design.

MADE IN OPA LOCKA


Made in Opa-locka presents a new model for architectural practice that is simultaneously research and realization; both critical and rooted in the difficult realities of race, class, and economics; and that is opportunistic in leveraging new sources of funding for experimental architecture in the public realm.

Operating under the guise as public artists, architects Bonner+Stayner embarked in a large urban renewal project to include three Public Houses and nine Micro-Enterprises. Working with the local building stock in this north Miami neighborhood, we propose micro additions to houses to promote the up-start of at-home businesses while adding storefront windows to other homes encouraging public spaces for all, such as, an art hotel, business incubator, and after-school program. To acheive these projects Bonner+Stayner proposed to work with city officials to re-write the zoning code for the city of Opa-Locka.
