Synopsis: Ralph S. Steenblik is best known as a designer, curator, and thinker. In Convergence: Work For a New Time, Steenblik presents a selection of outstanding and visionary work exploring interactive, parametric, and dynamic architecture. Through this exploration, he blurs the line between architecture and user experience (UX). This work contains architectural projects, photos and sketches, as well as brief critical essays on contemporary architecture and society. The projects and articles display a rare passion and creativity, as well as a refreshing genuinity. It is clear that these works matter to the author/designer. Further, Steenblik both strengthens his ideas and articulates his process using the important method, cinematics. Many projects are marked by a series of frames, effectively expressing a narrative. This method also highlights the crucial connection between film and architecture. Readers should also notice Steenblik's emphasis on the 21st Century topics: choreography, intelligent displacement, and synchronized simultaneity. All in all, Convergence is a refreshing overture on contemporary and progressive architecture. -Rachel Hunt, Philosophy Librarian, CGU

About the Author: Ralph Spencer Steenblik is a designer and curator. His works have been realized on three continents (North America, Europe, Africa) and across many mediums. He has worked at prominent architecture firms in New York and Los Angeles, including KPF, AECOM, and Canon Design (formerly OWP/P). Ralph’s designs have been featured in numerous magazines and exhibitions. He has also been the recipient of several awards, including first place at the Washington D.C. Health Care Design Competition in 2009, and top honors at Southern California Institute of Architecture’s exhibitions. His latest project was an exhibition exploring the four dimensional possibilities of space. As producer and head curator, he selected over 100 works from approximately 50 artists--three of whom are Emmy Award winners, and two Academy Award winners. The exhibition ran for three months at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles. It sold out the first printing of the corresponding catalogue, and the second printing has been sent to press. Ralph specializes in collaboration, architectural philosophy, and advanced technologies, complemented by an intense sense of creativity. He thrives on integrating media, conceptual art, and the scientific models to create positively influential environments. He understands with Churchill that, “We shape our buildings, thereafter they shape us.”
