IDEA Studio

Interdisciplinary Design and Experimental Architecture

Our Story

The IDEA Studio is a curricular approach launched in the spring semester of 2016.
The goal of this project was to establish a framework for an interdisciplinary design and experimental architecture studio approach that integrates practice concerns and educational objectives, while also investigating the potential for new material strategies involving textiles for architectural applications. The one- year project period allowed for development and pilot testing of the curriculum in order to substantially evaluate the outcomes for future expansion of this approach.

Featured Works

Reconfigurable mold for fiber reinforced composites

This project focuses on developing a reconfigurable model for fiber composites in architecture. Composite materials have been explored in architecture for their customizable functional properties of lightness, strength, stiffness and fracture toughness, particularly, in growing applications for architectural structures and envelopes. This investigation involved (1) geometric analyses of double-curved surfac- es; (2) material explorations of flexible surface geometries including 3D printed modules, elastic materials; (3) digitally driven fabrication methods with Rhino3D, grasshopper, Firefly and Arduino, and shape memory alloy, motors;

 

and (4) fiber reinforced polymer production with molds. The findings of this research offered understanding of key parameters of reconfigurable mold design and fiber-rein- forced composite construction.
