Manufactured Assemblages, an exhibition of student work from the undergraduate architecture workshop opens on February 03, 2013 at Gund Hall on the campus of Harvard University.
The January Arts Intensive explored material assemblages through an investigation of manufactured artifacts. The course introduced 12 undergraduate students to the design processes that incorporated experimentation, thinking through making, and iterative methodologies. Students exercised their minds and hands with an intensive series of material investigations producing a variety of formal and spatial artifacts. Students were challenged to explore different media and operations utilized in architectural design, visual communication, and material fabrication. Over the course of the intensive, the students’ abilities to create, construct and communicate provided a pathway to establishing their own distinct design process.
