This week’s featured print is a graduate student’s final physical model for ARCH70, “Design Studio V,” at Penn Design. It features the concept of the elevator shaft of the residential tower being extended into the foundation of the building and turned into a recreation space. The project components were printed in three different materials, using three different 3D printers.
The model was picked up for the exhibition ‘ON MODELS‘ held at the Philomathean Art Gallery at the end of January, 2019. The exhibition addressed questions such as, “what is the role of the model in architecture?” and “how does color, form and texture emerge from content to influence architecture?”
