PATTERNING CUTENESS Trajectories of post-radical postmodernism | Group project | Fall 2013 | Lisa Tilder

The first half of this studio focused on the study of key figures in postmodernism and radical postmodernism. Based on emergent ideas and techniques we identified, possible future trajectories of postmodernism were proposed. We explored these ideas through a series of models and drawings from which a new idea emerged - the possibility of employing cuteness as an architectural strategy. We studied this first with more models, transforming iconic buildings throughout the history of postmodernism through the use of traditionally cute materials and processes: felt, knitting, stitching, stuffing. Architectural drawings, patterns, and a neighborhood of “cuties” were then produced to suggest alternative strategies for cuteness in architecture.

(DIS)CONNECTION | TAICHUNG CITY CULTURAL CENTER Exit Studio Project | Spring 2014 | Stephen Turk and Jeffrey Kipnis

In this culture of connectedness, the unfocused viewer should be made aware of where they stand among others in a shared spatial experience. This project studied strategies of spatial weaving to create ambiguous connections within a complex narrative, recreating an uncanny fear of disconnection while using each local experience to generate a desire to go forward into the unknown. These ambiguous moments seek to shift focus to immediate experience and create an awareness of self in relation to others. I designed a late entry scheme for the recent Taichung City Cultural Center competition to study speciďŹ c techniques for producing this ambiguity. The competition called for a building with two programs, a public library and an art museum, which I wove together throughout my building to create interesting points of intersection and opportunities for views between visitors. Ambiguous connections are created at speciďŹ c points of intersection and threshold within the scheme.

PARK AVENUE TOWER New York City density study | Winter 2013 | Jane Murphy

This studio studied the possibilites of the site immediately surrounding Grand Central Terminal in response to a proposed zoning change that would significantly increase the allowable FAR (floor area ratio) in order to increase density in that area. For my study, I chose a site on Park Avenue adjacent to three historical landmarks with a proposed FAR allowance of 24. My tower relates and responds these landmark buildings (particularly Mies van der Rohe’s Seagram Building and SOM’s Lever House) while taking full advantage of the height allowed by an FAR of 24 and asserting itself in the NYC skyline.

ANN ARBOR ARTS ACADEMY Comprehensive Studio | Group project | Fall 2012 | Rob Livesey and Bart Overly

transparency relates to program weathering steel cladding

semi-public courtyard


The task in this studio was to work in teams to design and fully resolve a global arts academy for 50 resident artists on one of ďŹ ve sites, including Shanghai, New York, Ann Arbor, Yellow Springs, and the Sahara Desert. Due to the wide range of site conditions, emphasis was placed on relation to site context and either creating or enhancing the existing arts community on that site.

FIGURAL STRUCTURES karamba3d Workshop | Group project | Winter 2012 | Clemens Preisinger and Justin Diles

This was a one week workshop during which we worked in teams to model unique structural solutions for figural building massings inspired by work from OSU’s exhibition at the 2012 Venice Biennale. The massings were digitally modeled using karamba3d, structural analysis software developed by Klaus Bollinger and Clemens Preisinger of Bollinger-Grohmann Engineers. Large-scale final models of structural scenarios were produced by construction and assembly of cardboard cells.

BUTTONS AND BALUSTRADES Faces: The Appearance of Performance | Fall 2012 | Stephen Turk

This installation was produced at the end of a seminar that studied faciality, facades, and the thresholds of recognition. Iconic images of over one hundred buildings were mirrored and silhouetted, and then extruded or revolved to produce a ďŹ eld of objects on a game board at two scales.

LOUISE BOURGEOIS PAVILION | EXPO 2012 Pavilion for black box artists gallery | Winter 2012 | Stephen Turk

The project was to design a small pavilion to display the work of a seminal 20thcentury artist at an imaginary world exposition in Dubai. I designed this pavilion to display Louise Bourgeois’ Fillette (1968), a hanging sculpture of male genitalia. The sculpture hangs in a raised room with a glass floor. Like the sculpture, the viewer is suspended and on display for viewers approaching at ground level. The suspension of the exhibition space, as well as the pavilion’s visual instability, communicates a sense of ambivalence Bourgeois incorporated into her work.

MOODY NOLAN, INC. Summer 2013 | Columbus, OH

During my time at Moody Nolan, I was given a wide range of responsibilities, which allowed me to gain experience in many different aspects of the profession. I worked primarily in Revit on multiple phases of educational and recreational projects. Much of my time was spent on construction documents and compiling schematic design packages for clients, but I also assisted with a wide range of other tasks, including LEED documentation, material speciďŹ cation, and digital and hand modeling. I also attended meetings for engineering coordination, interior design, and sustainability to gain a deeper understanding of the professional practice.

FIBERS WORK Artwork produced at Eastern Michigan University | 2010-2011

Cocoon, 2011 Handwoven plastic lacing and ďŹ shing line, plastic tubing, wire


My ďŹ bers work was driven technically by my interest in material experimentation and qualities of transparency. Most of my work explored the physical process and psychological effects of dreaming, but I also employed alternative process and material studies in a response to environmental concerns, such as the 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf.
