[3rd] Year Studio Update
October 1, 2014 § Leave a comment
This past Friday, Stephanie and Maruja‘s [3rd] year studio wrapped up the concept ideation portion of the NEXT University building renovation project for the Steelcase Design Competition. Students examined the appropriateness of each potential concept to educational design, the existing building structure, and the language of the drivers put forth by Steelcase. After choosing an appropriate concept, [3rd] year students explored the forms and masses relating to their concept by examining architectural precedents, sketching parti diagrams, and creating 3D models. This process lead each student to a strong design concept and a corresponding model, which will serve as a reference for future design decisions within the project. If you want a closer look, its not too late to visit the ideation boards and models pinned up on the wall of south studio.
