thermoplastics workshop

The workshop explores the architectural challenges of material exploration with the ambiguous goal of screen making. Through the study and use of various thermoplastics, and without the aid of a vacuum forming table, the molding, fabrication, and replication of parts evolved into a textural screen installation.

The final screen is composed of 176 cross-shaped pieces of white acrylic, interlocked into a woven entry emblem for the unit. Each piece was molded using CNC cut forms, and then installed as a curtain held away from a base using hidden stand-offs.
