Suspended Depositions

Students: Brian Harms, Haejun Jung, Vince Huang, Yuying Chen
Studio Title: SUSPENDED DEPOSITIONS ESTm Fall 2012
Instructor: Peter Testa with Brandon Kruysman, Jonathan Proto
AT: Peter Vikar

This project aims to blur the line between processes of design and fabrication in the context of rapid prototyping by increasing the fluidity of the fabrication process through coordinated material and robotic processes. The project exploits feedback loops that allow the process to be used as a live generative form-finding tool as well as a method for reification of designed objects.

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.

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.

Dust Breeding

Students: Stefano Passeri
Studio Title: Hernan Diaz Alonso Vertical Fall 2012
Instructor: Hernan Diaz Alonso

Dust Breeding deals with the legibility of amorphous forms in a pseudo-familiar landscape. The forms and the landscape are independent of each other and are governed by independent rules. At the same time, what is initially mere coexistence, gradually determines unexpected moments of empathy resulting in new sets of relationships.
