Kennedy Library Installation // spring 2010
Street Furniture Competition // Finalist
Architecture for Humanity, Chicago // winter 2011
ReKinetic Exhibit // Kennedy Library, Cal Poly
SWARMbrella installation selected for permanent display
Designed as part of the Re-Kinetic exhibit displayed in Cal Poly’s Kennedy Library, SWARMbrella explored modularity through the concept of a swarm. Acting as a flexible skin, the movement of each module affects the behavior of its neighbors as would a swarm. The surface can twist and turn without sacrificing structural rigidity. The installation was selected to remain on permanent display in the library’s atrium after the conclusion of the exhibit. The design was later entered into the Architecture for Humanity Street Furniture Competition in Chicago where it was selected as a finalist.
