SHATTERED! (The Potential of Fracturing Architecture)

Students: Alberto Alfonso + Juan Benavides
Studio Title:   MOTION AND MONOLITHICITY ESTm Summer 2013
Instructor: Marcelo Spina + Andrew Atwood

While taking on the combination of the seemingly disparate notions of MONOLITHICITY and MOTION, the project purposefully creates (mis)perceptions and (mis)representations of solidity, joinery, texture and building typology.  Through the means of a series of operations at multiple levels, this project investigates the mystification of the dualistic correlation between inside and outside, addresses the issue of part to whole relationships and probes the tenet of stability in architecture.

Gestural Fabrication

Students: Brian Harms
Studio Title: GESTURAL FABRICATION ESTm Summer 2013
Instructor: Marcelo Spina & Andrew Atwood

GESTURE+FORM+FABRICATION

This project is an investigation of the translation of real-time motion data into robotic motion paths. Through the implementation of an intuitive interface (which behind the scenes is comprised of: Leap motion + Rhino + Grasshopper + Firefly + Crane)  designers can go straight from fluid hand-motions to freeform physical objects. The goal is to circumnavigate mediation of the input by traditional 2D digital interfaces (mouse, keyboard, monitor), and allow for 3D input to translate directly to 3D output.

dy/dx of Motion: State of Monolithic

Students: HaeJun Jung, DaeHyun Kim
Studio Title: MOTION AND MONOLITHICITY ESTm Summer 2013
Instructor: Marcelo Spina + Andrew Atwood

With morphological simplicity of expression through white architecture in Modernism, came postmodern approach to reveal its inherent architectural qualities by manipulating material, void, and pattern.

MONOLITH AND MOTION

Students: Maria Kuzminskaya, Alicja Chola
Studio Title: MOTION AND MONOLITHICITY ESTm Summer 2013
Instructor: Marcelo Spina + Andrew Atwood

The project investigates the questionable relationship between motion and monolithicity, two
concepts that typically do not coexist in architecture. After researching what the notion of a
monolith means for a building, the main focus became the feature bringing the most questions – the tectonics of a monolith.
