This studio will utilize collage/assemblage techniques in order to design and construct three mobile, mutable, micro-architectural structures within the former Immaculate Conception Church in Buffalo.
Each of the micro-structures will fulfill one of the following types/programs:
1. TOWER – a vertically organized classroom space
2. CABINET – an expandable gallery/art storage unit
3. INCUBATOR – a place for private, solitary contemplation
As source material for these projects, we will draw upon the persistent theme of “the aedicule” (literally, little building) in architecture.
