Woven from 80,000 sq.ft. of plastic, White employs traditional tectonics along side contemporary ideas of form. The structurally supportive web transformed the Berg Gallery into an interactive environment for the display of our studio’s thesis books. Two distinct spaces were formed: above and below, each providing a comfortable setting for the enjoyment of our books. The underside was filled with woven pillow seating to provide communal gathering spaces beneath the columns of light. Above provided a fun and active canopy that accomodated climbing, rolling, crawling, and sitting. The deformable surface responded to the movement and distribution of users creating a dynamic interaction between the two spaces. Read Less

Studio 400 Book Show Installation
Woven from 80,000 sq.ft. of plastic, White employs traditional tectonics along side contemporary ideas of form. The structurally supportive web transformed the Berg Gallery into an interactive environment for the display of our studio’s thesis books. Two distinct spaces were formed: above and below, each providing a comfortable setting for the enjoyment of our books. The underside was filled with woven pillow seating to provide communal gathering spaces beneath the columns of light. Above provided a fun and active canopy that accomodated climbing, rolling, crawling, and sitting. The deformable surface responded to the movement and distribution of users creating a dynamic interaction between the two spaces.
The installation was a collaboration of our thesis studio that began from individual concept submissions. The rendering and diagram were my contributions to the initial schematic brainstorming session. The final installation incorporated much of the essence of my submission, adapting the form to fit the specific conditions of the gallery space.
