A lecture on 'the making of the collier&nbsp;memorial' will be made in advance of the public opening on April 27th. Over the last year, a team of faculty, students, and professionals&nbsp;collaborated on the design, engineering, and construction of the memorial. The Collier Memorial, designed by Professor Meejin Yoon and&nbsp;engineered in collaboration with Professor John Ochsendorf, is built from thirty-two solid granite blocks to form a five-way asymmetrical vault,&nbsp;achieving stability and strength through unity and the interaction of each part. The memorial symbolizes strength through community and&nbsp;combines historic stone setting techniques with contemporary robotic fabrication technologies.

Computation has also become a platform for&nbsp;creativity through generative art and design. New hardware platforms and digital fabrication technologies have similarly transformed&nbsp;manufacturing, offering more efficient production and mass customization. Such advances have helped catalyzed the maker-movement,&nbsp;democratizing design and maker culture. This influx of new capabilities to design, compute and fabricate like never before, has sparked a&nbsp;renewed interest in material performance.&nbsp;This conference is about the emerging field of active matter and programmable materials that bridges&nbsp;the worlds of art, science, engineering and design, demonstrating new perspectives for computation, transformation and dynamic material&nbsp;applications.</p><p><br>How does this shift influe...</p> 2015 Undergraduate Thesis & Spring Show Exhibition sciarcnews 2015-04-23T11:17:00-04:00 >2015-04-23T11:17:24-04:00 <img src="" width="514" height="343" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>SCI-Arc is pleased to announce the 2015 Undergraduate Thesis presentations and the opening for the school&rsquo;s end-of-year Spring Show exhibition, featuring student work from all programs.</p><p><strong>Thesis Presentations</strong><br>Friday, April 24, 2-6pm<br>Saturday, April 25, 10am-1pm &amp; 2-5pm</p><p><strong>Spring Show Opening Reception</strong><br>Saturday, April 25, 5-7pm</p><p>The undergraduate program at SCI-Arc supports and values thesis as an opportunity for students to both synthesize their undergraduate work over the part five years, and to also aim beyond that base of knowledge towards new propositions.
