The college held a competition to design an information kiosk that would occupy the courtyard between the college's two buildings. The winning kiosk was to be built. Its purpose was to provide a central place to post information and details for events. The design team was myself, Steve Valev, Kris Olmon, and Jaime Walter.<br><br> We wanted to do away with the traditional kiosk and create a framework for the continuous flow of ideas. Over time, as posters layer on top of each other, the kiosk would disappear and leave only the information itself behind.<br><br> We also wanted it to be an <i>occupiable</i> space, so that it might be more interactive and less of an object for posting on.<br><br> It was an incredibly educational experience to actually build the project, as we had to fight many battles, and convince many people of our idea.<br><br> Here it is in fabrication.<br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_kiosk7.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_kiosk8.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br> On the day of installation.<br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_kiosk2.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_kiosk1.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_kiosk3.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_kiosk4.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br> After a week of use.<br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_kiosk5.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_kiosk6.jpg" alt="image" name="image"></p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21449911/fourth-year-studio fourth year studio Devin 2005-02-12T22:39:06-05:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <p>Sorry for the delay in posting my first entry, but as usual things have been very busy.<br><br> I will do my best to post regularly from now on.<br><br> My studio this semester is taught by Terry Surjan, who incidentally, was announced recently as one of the finalists for the Flight 93 Memorial.<br><br> Terry has organized this studio so that it is non-traditional. Non-traditional in the sense that by halfway through the semester all of the students will have come together behind one project to construct the design full-scale. At this point in the semester we have already organized ourselves into two or three constantly evolving groups.<br><br> Our assignment is to create a space that is constructed from a series of adaptable components which will be designed and produced using strictly digital means of design and fabrication. So, basically our project starts with designing the building component, rather than starting with the overall design scheme&Atilde;&cent;&acirc;&sbquo;&not;&rdquo;&#157;we are designing the brick rather than the house.<br><br> Th...</p>
