Nearly three weeks into the semester here at UIC, we are officially waist deep in studio. ARCH 552 is another studio based on the exploration of formal language though intensive modeling and diagrammatic drawing. Set Up in five stages we are quickly coming up on the end of the first stage, with a review Monday.
The structure of the class involves weekly full class pin-ups. So far we have produced a minimum of four 1"x4"x4" models per week with drawings. The first pin up was of models built of PVC shower liner, a flexible membranous type material. The second was of paper and acetate models. Each week the class votes on each set of models and the winner of your four is the one that you continue with.
The each next step in the studio is unknown to us until the proceeding section is done.
Here are a few images from our first pin-up.
