Matthew Teismann, MKC's Director of Design, was recently published in Fabrications Journal by Taylor & Francis Routledge. This article is titled 'An Emerging International: The Imperial Gaze of the Monster Globe in 1851,' and is the most comprehensive publication to date of Teismann's research into purpose-built viewing apparatus he calls optica. In this featured cover article, Teismann contends that architecture can instantiate being-in-the-world through a hidden architectural allegory that redefines our perception of the built environment. This paper contends that humans' modern conception of the world can be derived and displayed through certain types of architecture - where people come face to face with the world. During the mid-nineteenth century there was an inherent desire to visit these spectacles, a global project embedded within what Peter Sloterdijk calls an ‘architecture of immersion.’
