This collaboration between 12 graduate students began as an experiential response to a 10-day travel component conducted in late September. The trip included visits to architecture ﬁrms and fabrication studios in New York City, an intensive hiking trip through the landscape of Big Bend National Park in Texas, and a stay in Marfa, Texas to see the work of artist Donald Judd.
With the primary medium as installation, this project was conceived from a wide range of individual data collected during the trip, and embodies the group’s collective experience. The installation is designed as a ﬁeld of varying densities that evokes an immersive quality within the spaces it creates. The individual modules are organized and assembled within a parametric system and allow for different levels of porosity through the ﬁeld, a system of scalar changes that also alters the experience of the spaces.
