SP22 / BOX
What comes first, the material or the idea ?


“Let the material tell you what he wants”.
Louis Kahn


Rarely the question of material and materiality is addressed as a starting point in the design process. This question more often comes at the end and the student ask themselves : how do I build it ? During this workshop, materials and construction technics will not be an afterthought. On the contrary, they will come first.

This year the workshop will be focusing on experimentation with wood strips, made of poplar wood, used to build vegetable crates. The goal will be to better understand the material inherent properties and to explore different construction ideas before choosing one and implementing it at full scale.
