Shunning conventional terms like principal and firm, Greg Corso and Molly Hunker consider themselves cocaptains of their emerging design team. It’s fitting, then, that the duo decided to name their collaboration SPORTS. “Sports involve rules and parameters,” Corso explains, “yet there is room in which they can be quite beautiful and kind of extraordinary”— just like architecture.
The metaphor goes further: sports have the potential to engage audiences from all walks of life, Corso and Hunker say, and they want their work to be just as accessible. SPORTS has pursued this goal by tapping into an unconventional yet recognizable arsenal of materials— from zip ties to prayer candles. Now the pair, both assistant professors at Syracuse University School of Architecture, hope to get more skin in the game.
