Pratt GAUD Exhibition 2013, New York

May 8th, 2013 by retail design blog

Pratt Institute’s Graduate Architecture & Urban Design exhibition of student work has been curated, designed, and fabricated by a group of students. Last year professor Michael Szivos worked together with Carrie McKnelly, and they decided to do the same this year.

Each year the course attempts to produce an installation that explores digital fabrication methods, while showcasing the previous year’s student work. A cloud-like structure hangs over the students work. Each cell represents a project. The underside of this structure is clad with colour coded images of the students work. The bottom appears solid, but the structure above is very porous to allow for light to still penetrate into the gallery.

The hanging installation was made of over 250 unique cells. These were each custom laser cut, assembled, and clad with custom cut images. The structure is exceptional light, while still being very strong and taking up large volume.
Design Team : Maryam Delshad, Maurizio Huaylla, Sira Kiatnum, Taesoo Kim, Trey Lindsay, Katia Loizou, Dong Gyum Park, Ally Speir, Jenna Steinbeck, Darion Washington, Nick Wright, Matiss Zemitis
