This was a very fun course. I think having this course as an elective is a disservice to the instructor, the students, and the course itself. This should be a complete studio, perhaps between Design studio 3 and Design studio A. The value of what is learned in this course should be used in other forms of architectural design. The run out-and-play format of the course works well w/ architectural students’ proclivity to explore.
Designing the final project I wanted something that I would use in my own home and of course utilitarian, also something I knew would not be too complicated to complete. So utilitarian + humor = lightbulb within a lightbulb lamp.
This one was quickly fabricated w/ the lasercutter and 2ply chipboard was used. I intend on using other materials and readjusting the design for other shapes soon.
