See the work created by architecture students at Woodbury School of Architecture in the Spring 2016 Studio 5A. The studio was taught by visiting assistant professor, Yasushi Ishida, and had student do investigations into flexible sheet formwork.
In this 15-week studio, 5th year undergraduate students investigated novel aesthetic potentials of flexible sheet formwork by first experimenting with various sheet materials (e.g. polypropylene, nylon, latex, Tyvek, PETG, etc.), texturing techniques (e.g. folding, crumpling, heat-forming, smocking, etc.) and casting a series of small scale plaster objects. Harvesting design concepts and construction methods from this exercise, students designed and constructed a total of 4 architectural installations on campus.
