Open Access Dead Letter Office

To speak of “live” projects is also to acknowledge the presence of “dead” projects, those for whom there is no client and at the end of which there is no plan to implement or full-scale project to occupy. Severed from implementation and disconnected from professional expectations, dead projects take residence within the architectural dead letter office, a place of unbuilt or unbuildable ruminations unable to find a way into the world of built things. These projects offer a way to reconsider Live Projects by reflecting on the role of speculation and incompleteness in architectural education and in doing so can serve as a reminder that design pedagogy is inherently richer by the presence of both “live” and “dead” thinking.
