This collection features fall semester work in Design I, Technics, and Represention I during first semester and year from Pratt Institute Undergraduate School of Architecture.

DESIGN I

Professor: Abigail Hume Coover

Year: 2012

Status: Archived

Synopsis: Design I explores ones ideas and how they should be constructed in a process from the inception of the idea to the final creation. From points to lines to planes to volumes, this project focuses on how one creates the most significant body of architecture: space.
 

TECHNICS PROJECT I

Professor: Zachary Joslow

Year: 2012

Status: Archived

Synopsis: Technics Project I features the challenge of creating a structure that can withstand weight at a vertical axes using body positions and joints as a guideline.

TECHNICS MIDTERM

Professor: Zachary Joslow

Partner: Samantha Swanson

Year: 2012

Status: Archived

Synopsis: With partner Samantha Swanson, Technics Midterm features the challenge of creating a structure that is called a "spantilever" which is the combination of a span and cantilever into one device that can withstand 25 pounds of weight while using three human body positions as a guideline. The spantilever must have a span of 36 inches, a cantilever of 36 inches, and support of 8 inches making a grand total length of 80 inches.
 

TECHNICS FINAL

Professor: Zachary Joslow

Partners: Mrinalini Sanghani, Samantha Swanson

Year: 2012

Status: Archived

Synopsis: With partners Mrinalini Sanghani and Samantha Swanson, Technics Final features the challenge of creating a structure that would support certain parts of the human body with the element of tensegrity. Using a specific human position as guidelines for the project, the structure fulfills in supporting the human head with the structural tensegrity element taking this project's title: "The Floating Headrest".
 

REPRESENTATION I

Professor: James Brucz

Year: 2012

Status: Archived

Synopsis: Representation I explores how ideas and thoughts are represented through the act of visual representation: drawing. Through the act of hand drawing and computer drawing, one can understand how concepts are developed, created, and finalized through a vigorous process.
