Student Works: StalacTile, Tessellated Manifolds - Archinect Tessellated Manifolds was created by students from Washington University in St. Louis led by Marcelo Spina of P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S, Daniel Carper and Ken Tracy. The project's scope was a full-scale installation that transformed the centralized classical staircase of Givens Hall. The installation seeks to enhance and transform the spatial atmosphere of the vertical stairwell foregrounding conditions of figuration, lighting, materiality, texture, coloration, and corporeality. At first revealed through a large exterior opening, the installation accompanies the user's visual background upon entering into the building, spiraling vertically through the 2nd and 3rd floor studios, and crescendos as the ornamented foreground of the vaulted ceiling. The project sensitively engages occupants through its formal description of proximal and cuspate peaks while dissipating into subtle saddle surfaces around its edges. ↑ Click image to enlarge Photo of the Final Installation at Givens Hall Presedent Research

Naples Art Gallery - Largest Fine Art Gallery in Southwest Florida Wood Pavillion by Wing Yi Hui and Lap Ming Wong Architecture students Wing Yi Hui and Lap Ming Wong of the Oslo School of Architecture and Design have completed a domed latticed pavilion as part of a performance-oriented design project. The pavilion is made up of several laminated strips of wood that have been bent in the middle and joined together, forming a diamond-shaped lattice-work. Adding moisture to the thin wooden elements resulted in them curving across the grain, thus increasing their structural capacity. The aim of the project was to investigate the intrinsic capacities and performance of wood and was conducted by Prof. Here's some more information about the project: The project seeks the equilibrium of precise control and natural response of the intrinsic wood capacities and aims to transform an everyday life material and methodology into a novel life. Due to these two specific behaviors of wood, surface moisturization results in curving across grain and increases the structural capacity of a flat piece of wood. See also:

Welcome to Buscot Park The Faringdon Collection, which can be viewed at Buscot Park in Oxfordshire and our London property, is the result of a century of collecting works of art by the Lords Faringdon.
