    Weeeee Diiiiiid it!!!!!

    Studio finals are over and I have emerged from my studio cocoon only to realize that posting on Archinect is only one of the many things that has taken a backseat to school in recent weeks.  In an attempt to make up for lost time I am preparing a full on blitzkrieg of blog posts over the next several days showcasing the final student work coming out of Taubman College this semester.

    In following posts I will highlight my final studio work for the semester as part of the Vertical Cities Asia competition, as well as the awesome Thesis work done by the now graduated M.Arch class of 2012, but for now lets take a look at the final exhibition of the work coming out of "Architecture of Objects" lead by professor Shaun Jackson ( ).


    This was an awesome course and one which I had been looking forward to taking ever since I was accepted into the U of M program.  The goal of the course (as Shaun would remind us many times) was to complete "fully resolved objects."

    In the vein of Charles and Ray Eames, the mantra for the class was "there are no details."

About this Blog

I am a graduate student and an entrepreneur at the University of Michigan Taubman College where my studies are focused on leveraging design ideas across multiple scales and platforms. Meeting at the intersection between design, tectonics and fabrication, I am continually exploring how a design idea can navigate complex material and production systems and evolve into fully realized architectural artifacts.
