Summer 2014 / UIC YArch Workshop
BLOBS
SECTIONS
SITES

This workshop was an intensive introduction to architectural design thinking and techniques. Design exercises included the formal derivation of blobs through lofting operations, the architectural section of found objects through collage, and site axonometrics deploying "the projective" as explained in Robert Somol's Green Dots 101 from Hunch #11.

 

Summer 2014 / UIC TryArch Workshop
DRAW
CUT / FOLD
This two-day workshop was a sampling of basic design thinking and doing by investigating qualities of line and the formal and material potential of paper. The exercises guided the design of a small pavilion that would replace Anish Kapoor's Cloud Gate in Chicago.
