Furniture Studio//WI 15
This studio requires that each student design, develop and finish a full-scale piece of furniture. Each furniture piece will be an opportunity for architecture writ small; recognizing the studio is offered within an architecture program, the process of design, design development, model-making and production will follow a typical building design studio. The final result of the studio, however – real, full-scale objects – changes a number of things. The physical consequence of design decisions and strategies is an inescapable reality, for example. Issues of craft, method, tolerance and the ethics of making are also heightened.
