Solar Pavilions book – in progress

MTWTF is designing a book on the Solar Pavilion series. This week we reviewed concept designs and layouts.

Structuring Fabric – reOrder

Smocking, pleating, stitching, stretching, folding, and other techniques for giving structure to fabric. Studies for reOrder, and an image from the book “The Art of Manipulating Fabric” by Colette Wolf.

reOrder – design development

Analyzing the light transmission, flexibility, tensile strength and jointing methods for the fabric in a quarter scale mock-up. The curators of the Brooklyn Museum visited the studio to discuss the design.

Brooklyn Museum reOrder work

Some work-in-progress of our ‘reOrder’ project for the Brooklyn Museum; a large installation in the Hall of the Americas. Setting up to sew some fabric studies in muslin, with a quick and dirty compression ring prototype.

Over the past week we’ve also been working at 1/8″ scale with a model of the Hall which we’re borrowing from the Museum.

"Collecting Architecture"

“USM and Felix Burrichter proudly present “Collecting Architecture,” an exhibition of literary selections by Barry Bergdoll, Daniel Libeskind, Martino Gamper, Charles Renfro, SITU Studio, Carmen Spera, Solid Objectives, and Didier Faustino — on view at the USM showroom from May 17 through May 21, 2010.”

SITU STUDIO’s selection: McMaster-Carr catalog.

The 3,856-page, bright-yellow McMaster catalog is the book that is always around in our office, letting us pore through “over 480,000 products”, supplies, and materials to discover that very specific and essential part that, without fail, arrives in the mail the following day.
