October in Second Year Studio

October 27, 2013 § Leave a comment

Over the last four weeks, Stephanie Brooker’s [2nd] year Studio has been working to create models of portable emergency shelters. These models were to consider all needs, resources and environments one might require during an emergency situation or if they were to be without a home for an extended period of time. Eleven teams of two students created a variety of shelters that addressed various specific needs. Some of the research obtained  for an understanding of the needs for  someone living in a shelter was provided by a guest lecturer Mark Stinson from Streetwatch, who came to visit our studio class, as well as, the viewing of “Tent City U.S.A.”. Both of these resources focused more on the needs of the homeless more so than those in a disaster relief situation; however, both scenarios were considered throughout the assignment. Six teams were voted to present their work as part of the Creative Time Summit happening in the Gatewood Lobby, which started Friday, October 25th at 9AM. All eleven groups displayed their models along with ‘how-to assemble’ instructional posters on Friday.  The exhibit will remain in the lobby over the weekend.
