Two x Two
Featured on ArchDaily: "The Best Student Design-Build Projects Worldwide 2016"
Two x Two was a 77-student collaboration design-build project. Using the method of construction pioneered by SHoP's Dunescape, five different studios designed and built a public space project for the College of Design's atrium. (The project was later moved to Reiman Gardens.)
The project was divided into five individual sections, each designed by a separate studio. The section contributed by my studio was a combination of two ideas: One which was very angular with flat seating, and another that was a series of undulating waves. The end result was a series of waves cut off with flat plateaus.
To build the project, we needed construction documents. 200 documents were produced and edited, each documenting a separate layer of the project. Every piece of wood for each layer was documented so they could be manufactured and then assembled.
I was responsible for creating a Grasshopper script that took a full 3D model of the project and isolated each individual layer for exporting. I was also responsible for a script that counted and measured each individual piece of wood in the model so that the appropriate amount of lumber could be ordered.
