R2R REEL to REAL

Studio Title: ESTm TestaVertical Studio FALL 2012
Instructor: Peter Testa with Brandon Kruysman, Jonathan Proto
AT: Peter Vikar

Architectural Form, Robotics and Cinematic Technique
R2R continues a series of Testa/Estm studios pioneering a new design paradigm at the convergence of Computation, Computational Materials, and Robotics. This new paradigm draws together digital abstraction and material agency within a Maya based real-time synchronous robotic shaping and simulation environment.The R2R studio is structured in two interrelated parts that combine innovative form making, and cinematic (post-animation) techniques. To support this architectural research program the studio will work on the conceptual design and prototyping of new design interfaces and representation techniques tied to specific geometries, material forms, and non-linear robotic design and fabrication workflows.

FIN.0

Students: Nicholas Barger, Evan Emery, Rangel Karaivanov, Andrew Kragness
Studio Title: TestaESTm Vertical Fall 2012 ‘R2R Reel to Real’
Instructor: Peter Testa with Brandon Kruysman, Jonathan Proto
AT: Peter Vikar

FIN.0 is a design platform comprised of repertoires of robotic motion, material logics, tool customization and real-time cinematic techniques networked into a dynamic interface that allows for the design and evaluation of dynamic surfaces and the motion of form.

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.

Cindy Crawford

Students: Erin Besler, Paul Stoelting, Paul Trussler
Seminar Title: Robotic Confections & Confabulations (RoCoCo)
Instructor: Devyn Weiser
AT: Jonathan Stahl

Cindy Crawford participates in the tension between loose, painterly, gestural abstraction and the hard-edged, figuratively particular abstraction associated with Pop, initiated in mid-20th century American art. Roy Lichtenstein’s Brush Stroke paintings from the 1960’s, depicting apparently casual arrangements of conventional chromatic discharge, rendered with iconic specificity, and produced industrially, conflate this tension. The series is taken here to be a retroactive archetype for a marginal tendency toward aberrant “painterly” abstraction achieved through means of conceptual acuity, technical proficiency, and computational composition.
