First-year students most recently completed the 2’X4’ project, a classic project that many first-year students have done over the years. It involves cutting a 2’x4’x2’ piece of wood into pieces and designing a 3-part system of scale with these pieces. The students also completed a deconstruction project, which involved the disassembly of a surplus chair into its basic components after making a set of record drawings of the existing chair.
In the last week of the semester, the first-year students began working on their final project. To do so, they are designing a “slice of light” artifact that captures a light effect, using the disassembled parts of the chair. The idea for this project was developed by the graduate teaching assistant Christopher Vann. This is also the first time that the IARc graduate student design a project for undergraduate students. After presenting this final project, some of the final pieces will be exhibited at the Office of Sustainability in the Elliot University Center at UNCG!
