YSOA: Material Formation in Design
These images represent some of my work from Kevin Rotheroe's "Material Formation in Design" from the Fall 2008 Semester at the Yale School of Architecture.

Course Description:
This course presents historical, contemporary, and emerging methods of material formation from a designer’s perspective. Emphasis is placed on those processes especially useful for custom architectural fabrication, enabling students to capitalize on the opportunities generated by computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM). As the term progresses, component design and fabrication project assignments feature increasingly complex 3-D geometries. Students choose from a variety of 3-D modeling programs and use these in conjunction with conventional sketch-based ideation to create their designs. Students then fabricate their projects using the School’s wide array of computer-numerically controlled (CNC) additive and subtractive material forming equipment. Limited enrollment.
