SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE, PLANNING, AND LANDSCAPE
MASTER OF ARCHITECTURE TAYLOR BLOCK WEEK SEMINAR
TEAM: NICHOLAS HAMEL
INSTRUCTOR: DANA CUPKOVA
Dana Cupkova's Taylor Block Week Seminar focused on using simulation and environmental data from landscapes and water flows to investigate emergent architectural forms and textures. The workshop asked students to abstract geo-spatial datasets to "re-scribe" forces into formal constructs. Our team's goal was to explore perception and spatial aesthetics through a process that disrupts undulating landscape forms by fusing them with manmade objects, generating a multi-layered abstraction of natural textures. The textural aesthetics were output using mixed media tools such as animations, rendering, layered acetate printing, and plaster 3D printing.
