Architecture After the Internet (2017) reuses the weight of modernist starchitecture by imagining faulty mashups and translations of these supposedly untouchable objects into everyday artifacts in the home. The provocation responds to an uncertain moment when the images and media that architecture emits Online is experienced more readily than as spaces themselves. 

The protagonist, the @archmixes Twitter bot, prompts visitors to Tweet and archmixes as images Tweeted back at them. The sources are found 3D models Online. Several events were hosted that asked audiences to become actors in the making of new archmixes.
