Let there be fabric…

24Jan10

As wordpress so succinctly puts it, Hello World!

It’s the beginning of my Masters Final Project (hereafter likely referred to as Thesis) at the University of Minnesota, College of Design Master of Architecture program. This blog is going to be my dear diary for the duration of this project exploring fabric architecture, movement and performance. Feedback is welcome and encouraged!

For an in depth description of my proposal, check out my studio brief (Studio Brief_Sausen) that I’ll be using to shape my semester. For those not inclined to download the brief, briefly,

“As a way to engage fabric—as inspiration, building material and form-giver—this studio will explore fabric architecture to create a movable/moving temporary structure that re-presents our urban surroundings in a way that demands social and built interaction. The structure will house a dance performance and will collaboratively engage with the choreographer throughout the design process. The project will employ full-scale prototypes.”

I’ve also created a video montage with some inspiring projects.
