How does one envision architecture? Forays gathers the work of Joe Day and Deegan-Day Design into six diptychs, unified by this question. Working in a wide range of media and scales, Day’s work mines the differentials between perspective and projection. Forays is organized in six “diptychs,” the first two paired projects are books in their own right; the second pair, a clothing line and a first building; the third, two houses; the fourth, two plays on brand identity and design methodology; the fifth, permanent and transient cinema proposals; and the sixth, two series of speculative work in local and global registers. Modeled on a comparison of two classic cameras—the Leica M3 and Polaroid SX-70—each diptych includes a project with more “Leica” to it—a more bounded, Cartesian clarity or distilled focus—and another closer to an SX-70 in its moving or folding parts, its shape-shifting adaptability.

Joe Day is a designer and architectural theorist in Los Angeles where he leads Deegan-Day Design and serves on the design and history/theory faculty at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc).
