A4856-1 / Fall 2016

Transitional Geometries

This semester’s class encouraged exploration and development in two different ways. The first was an abstract study of tiling principles, which looked at different tileable ‘frame’ conditions. Strategically-placed nodes overlaid on these frames allowed the tile to be flipped and rotated so that adjacent nodes formed new relationships; these adjacent relationships allowed a single tile to create a seemingly random pattern over a large surface. The second means of development was from iterative feedback in fabrication. Students developed their own designs based on in-class tutorials in concrete casting and mold-making. There were no ‘perfect’ molds, but through the feedback-driven design process, students built on these new understandings and pushed beyond with each successive iteration. Subsequently, each mold became a test of something new, attempting to push the boundaries into an unknown result so that the class as a whole could learn and develop.
