Construct I - view 3 by LocusMote Construct I - view 3 by LocusMote
Construct I. 2005.
100 Hand-cut Museum Board pieces, Glue.
4 x 6 x 9 in.


The spatial transformation project was the first work we were given at The University of Michigan's School of Architecture and Urban Planning. The idea was to introduce us to the ideas of making and conceptual ideation through physical modeling.

The assignment was to assemble 100 layers of museum board cut to 4 x 9 inches to create a block 6 inches deep. We were told to cut away at each piece of museum board in order to create voids which engaged space in an "architectural way."

This one week assignment became the jumping-off point for a second phase of the project which we only later found out about.

The 100 handcut pieces of board in Construct I - view 3 by ~LocusMote gives this architectural model a strong feel of nature - I see cliff or maybe ice formations, what do you see in this spatial transformation? ( Featured by Myana )

Sounds a bit like what I did in the first semester in my school of architecture and urban planning.... I've just started this year at the Technion, Israel ^_^ Our assignment was "Manipulation On A Cube"...
And that became our jumping point for a new assignment, that was revealed to us afterwords....
