What Lies Beneath

Students: Salvador F Cortez
Studio Title: Smoke and Mirrors Final Studio Summer 2014 – ESTm
Instructor: Marcelo Spina & Casey Rehm

For the last decades, motion has been a present issue for architecture, the introduction of new technologies has opened the spectrum for an approach towards a machine-like transformation, where the building physically displaces itself in space while the observer remains immobile, in a traditional spectator-performer relationship. By inverting the roles, the project allows for a more feasible building where reflections and perception translate into the mechanics of motion, moving between the problem of disguise and camouflage in an experiential way, to the accepted notion of formal primitives and heavy mass in the geometrical and material understanding of motion.

ANAMORPHIC CARCUSES

Students: Daniel Caven
Studio Title: ANAMORPHIC CARCUSES Summer 2014 – ESTm
Instructor: Marcelo Spina & Casey Rehm

There is no energy crisis, food crisis or environmental crisis. There is only a crisis of ignorance. — R. Buckminster Fuller

Anamorphic Carcases is a generation of architectural artifacts using, as a medium, the polluted aquifers lining the Mojave desert. Native species population, and fresh water supplies hang unbalanced in the desert—leaving Anamorphic Carcases to create an environmental performance through the purification process. Ultimately creating a symbol of pollution and an architectural stance on effects to the ecosystem.

Tra[V]erse

Students: Brennen Huller
Studio Title: Smoke and Mirrors_Mojave Summer 2014 – ESTm
Instructor: Marcelo Spina & Casey Rehm

This project aims to explore a reconfigurable cell (Tra[V]erse) that will house an uploaded whole brain emulation (WBE) platform challenging spatial perception. The cell will act as a driver for infinite potential space configurations that will begin to remap, reinterpret, and alter information.

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.
