Consumed and Controlled by Dennis Byun

This project is a cutting critique of consumer culture. It is also a clever exploration of the role architecture (and in turn the architect) can, does and should play in our lives and associated politics. Visually dynamic and intentionally over-stimulating, this project asks important questions of both our society and us as designers.
