In today’s episode of shameless self-promotion - my studio’s installation project Patterning Porosity was featured on designboom earlier this morning! I’ve been truly fortunate to work with some of the most creative and hard-working students and professors over the past four years here in Philadelphia and just a few weeks removed from graduation, waking up to this in my inbox from my studio critic was as gratifying as the first model I presented in freshman year. The installation goes back up this Friday afternoon, so if you’re anywhere near Philadelphia over the next three weeks, you’re more than welcome to take the trip up to Temple’s campus to see it for yourself!

students at the the tyler school of art, temple university in philadelphia have created ‘patterning porosity’, a group installation that lines the windows of an existing glass façade. the project explores the tectonic outcomes that different parameters such as thickness, porosity and connections have on distinct patterned systems as they are translated from graphic two-dimensional drawings into a three-dimensional structure. employing a rigid piece of styrofoam, the work adjusts to conditions of light through a sequence of transformative designs. each student was given a portion to create based on intricate details found in nature, with the individual aesthetics then blended into a singular and homogenous construction.

"If I have a style like blob or zigzag, then the problem can’t show me anything new. I try to come innocently to a project, find an idea, and let that lead me into the possibilities. The measure of good architecture is in the experience - in the quality of space, of light, smell, sound, and texture. A five-year-old can go into the space and be excited."

"An individual building is to the continuous space of a city as a letter is to a sentence or a word. Syntax here does not concern elements within a building, but the syntax of buildings within a city."
