Shipwreck & Fractal Cult – Burning Man

img_8685

Shipwreck and Fractal Cult have made the journey from the drawing boards of studio, a kickstarter for funding, and finally all the way across the pond to construction at Burning Man.  Watching this studio has been a amazing to watch from the outside, a rare glimpse into the studio life and culture of another architecture school.  Not only that the dedication from their teachers from design to realization is rather impressive. Check out the work after the jump and make sure to check out WeWantToLearn for this years studio!

Screen Walls – Boston School of Architecture

stair-lean

School is back in session and so is Futures+, we can’t wait to see what comes out of this year’s studios and endless all nighters.  We look forward to seeing your projects or your fellow classmate’s asleep under their desk!   So we are kicking off the year with a project we came across awhile back by a group of students out of the Boston School of Architecture.  Screen Wall was a workshop studio exploring digital fabrication in collaboration with Radlab, a rather interesting multidisciplinary design and fabrication consulting firm.  The studio explored the field condition of a unit that could act as a ever changing screen element within the space.  The playful exploration as the wall not as a static element makes you want to push this project even further.  Check it out after the jump!
