Amazing work by the students in my #sciarc seminar entitled “Details, details...”. The class is an investigation into the future of the architectural detail.  It considers a range of critical positions on the issue and tests their outcome through the design and fabrication of architectural detail.  These handrail details are by Marcos  Dana And Jinsoo Kim.

A throwback to a drawing for the competition boards of our Pendulum Plane project (now built at the WUHO / La Forum for Architecture  and Urban Design space in Hollywood). #tbt

From my partner, Jenny Wu’s, ( @lace_jennywu ,  @lacebyjennywu )collection.  We designed many of her rings to nest together to allow for different materials to be worn together, and to be shared by couples.  In this case, her Amare and Sera, are often worn as an engagement band and a wedding band.  Check out her amazing work at www.jennywulace.com.

Excited to finally have this Piece completed from our Active Inlay series!  A condensed project description:  Inlay refers to a material or element embedding within a different material in such a way that both materialsurfaces coincide.  Inlay commonly consists of a primary (typically three-dimensional) object and a secondary (relatively thin) material.

However, its definition does not explicitly call for such a hierarchical approach, nor does it suggest that either of the materials are limited in their three-dimensionality.  Sectional objects, for example, often expose elements, giving the impression of an inlay, while in reality that perceived inlay exists as a much larger, more three-dimensional object (but one thathas been obscured or distorted as a result of the section cut). This work exploits the ambiguity of this definition - exploring the idea of inlay as a more three-dimensional issue- one that at times conveys its two-dimensional figural qualities, and at other times exists as a fully three-dimensional element.  @lace_jennywu @hans_koesters @_harrison.steinbuch

From yesterday’s “silent pun-up” in my 3rd year studio at SCI-Arc.  My approach to these isn’t really a “redlining” or correction mark-up, but rather a kind of catalog of ideas for development.  Often even contradictory in nature, the comments and drawings lay out a range of potential directions for moving the project forward.  This project is by Chu Wen Ong, Sally (Nandar) Lwin

Over the next few days, I want to feature our “Stormcloud” project.  Built to celebrate the 40th anniversary of SCI-Arc, the pavilion is a renovation of our previous “Netscape” project.  Using the same structure (with a few key additions and modifications), what was once a porous net project was transformed into a volumetric project.  @sciarc @michael.piscitello
