    The Los Angeles based architect Tom Wiscombe, formerly of Coop Himmelb(l)au, spent the majority of the previous week at the Knowlton School. Here, he lectured as well as led a workshop titled "Involuted Figures and Black Holes." In the lecture, Tom described his work with the three-dimensional diagram, consisting primarily of a toy-like figured called a jack. Through modeling, he manipulates the forms in search of smooth, ambiguously grounded final figurations. 

    In the workshop held throughout the week and concluding Saturday evening, the students were brought through an introductory understanding of the three-dimensional modeling software Maya to produce a two drawings. This allowed those involved an inside look at how Wiscombe works through his figurations and thinks about these complex forms.

    The following project drawings are those of Allison Drda, a third year Graduate student at the Knowlton School.
