Intermittency Exhibition + Installation Opens @ RISD Museum

Student design work from Michael Leighton Beaman's Intermittency studio will be on exhibit at the RISD Museum in the Chace Center lobby at 20 N. Main Street in Providence RI, May 22nd - June 1st 2015.This studio brings together students from Interior Architecture/Adaptive Reuse,and artists, educators, and RISD Museum staff to design an intermittent space for display, commerce, and communication at the Chace Center. Utilizing the newly completed Co-Works technology lab where students have access to all 3D printing, cutting, milling, and printing facilities, we worked with parametric modeling software and CNC manufacturing equipment throughout the semester to complete an installation in the RISD Museum Chace Center. The installation displays the work from the semester including full-scale mock-ups of the final design proposals. From a pedagogical standpoint, the use digital design and production methodologies that allow us to span from design concept to physical construction to interactive project documentation provided a common ground for a cross-disciplinary approach to design practice. For more on the studio please read Simone Solondz' article in RISD news " Designs for Flexibility "
