Last week was crazy in Boston and we know it wasn’t easy to focus on studio work, especially all you archy’s in Boston. Our hearts go out to you as we know the long nights and countless days in studio are growing close to an end. F+ is right here to help you find that last minute inspiration. Once your reviews are done, and you get some shut eye, let us showcase your work, or even suggest a college that we should check out!
I think architects and designers are so enamored by the design of a fine chair because of its ability to capture the moment of form follows function in the most minimalistic sense. A chair design has to have control of structure, material integrity, and a spatial relationship to the human body. Each corner, joint and connection on a chair is tangible and has to flow to realize a fine chair. Myself I am a sucker for minimalistic chair designs from Eames to Mies, but recently Ellie Nonemacher’s “Dumbo Chair” (perfectly named) caught our eye. A graduate interior design student out of the University of Oregon shows an acute eye for detail and craft in her bent wood design. Certainly having Nils-Ole Zib, a well known designer and furniture-maker, as your professor certainly helps, but Ellie’s moments of connection in the chair appear effortless.

The long nights and countless days in studio are coming close to an end as most of you are reaching the end of the year. Futures+ wants to wish you luck as you begin to pour countless hours and endless nights into your designs. But hey once you get a chance to catch up on your sleep, send Futures+ your design to be showcased!
Spring break is over for most, and instead of putting hours into studio it is days, as all you push your designs to the limits for final studio critiques. From first years to thesis grads we know what it takes, we have been asleep under our desk, in the same clothes for days, and had piles of coffee cups on our desk. That is why we started F+ so that when it is all said and done, you can showcase all that hard work to the world!
Futures+ is heading into NYC for the weekend, and as always running through the streets like crazy. While were doing that you should checkout the site and submit your design work!
Get a hold of a quarter of a million zip ties, 19 architecture students, and an empty room and you are going to get an explosive canvas across the space. The 5th year students kicked off the semester with a design pavilion to showcase their first semester research as they jump into the final push of their thesis. The installation, with limited supplies, plays with the simple understanding of the connection of a zip tie, and building from that connection into a canvas. The variations of the connection create a playful field condition within the space as people move around and throughout the surface. Check it out after the jump!
