Throughout various courses at the University of Michigan, I have explored the capabilities of material and fabrication processes. Materials range from bristol paper to acrylic, to clay. Processes include robotic fabrication, laser cutting, 3D printing and vacuum forming. This exploration provides the opportunity to discover what is possible with various materials.
It is an excellent opportunity to quickly utilize study models to iterate on ideas. The opportunity to create custom elements for architectural projects is also appealing. Examples of this are found throughout this portfolio. The ability to understand fabrication processes also enables me to push projects in various directions. This includes combining materials and processes. One of the more intriguing processes is building a study model and applying it to an architectural scale.
