FEATURED ON SUCKERPUNCH
As part of Tulane School of Architecture's annual Architect's Weekend, our team worked on a full scale installation in Tulane's academic quad. The project was intended to explore new methodologies, foster community within TSA's student body and to expose the student body at large to digital fabrication.
We focused on the design and fabrication of a canopy informed by dynamic site constraints. We tracked the shortcuts that students take on their way to classes and conceived of a structure to frame these pathways. This formation was used to generate a canopy with a symbiotic relationship between skin and structure.
