Industrial Creeper

Students: Jacques Lesec and Chris Martin
Studio Title: Gow-Vertical SP2012 – The Imbalancing Act of Entropic Architecture
Instructor: Marcelyn Gow

This project investigates the nesting of compound orbicular geometries and the way in which their spatial configurations might begin to promote circulation for elements in flux. We’ve developed an assemblage whose complex and regenerative spatial arrangements take shape as the unit adapts to its specific environments. The forms lend themselves to a multitude of topological formal variation responding to unique localized ecologies within the greater Los Angeles area.

Knit-scapes

Students: Mehrzad Rafeei, Somayyeh Ramezani, Sean Markle, Jacques Lesec, Eric Wisarut
Seminar Title: Textile Tectonics
Instructor: Marcelo Spina

Knit-scapes takes a different approach to standard conventions of carbon fiber fabrication techniques which typically rely on laying up a series of layers with resin over various mold shapes. The focus of this process uses tensioned carbon fiber tow strands as a flexible framework woven through the knitted aramid fiber. This combination allows the resulting form to be shaped by the forces applied to the framework rather than the traditional lay-up/molding method.
