Enveloping Space – Lisa Christin Laue

Laue_3a

An RPI studio in which students have study classical geometrical relationships from the Baroque period paired with modern day scripting has yielded some amazing student works.  Much like Andrew Saunders “Re-interpreting the Baroque” studio, Lisa Christin Laue broke down Sant’Ivo alla Sapienza by Borromini. We see a simple investigation into geometrical evolution from its simplest form,  and to the radically pushed ornamental extreme through scripting.  The result looks like a pavilion straight out  of OZ, but the layering and spatial control of interior exterior envelopes is what draws you in.  Check it out after the jump!

Digital Form+Structure – Levente Gyulai

14

Most professors are probably standing over your shoulder hounding you to show them your sketches and ideas; they don’t want to watch your intangible 3D model orbit around on your screen.  They want to bleed red ink all of your sketches, break apart and reshape your models, and possibly click on your screening and dealt all the work you did the past 3 hours.  Yet you sketchbook doesn’t need to all be by hand, we must be as willing and nimble with the digital tools at our disposal.  We got a peak into Levente Gyulai digital sketch book into today’s post, where his ideas are quickly generate, not in there pristine form, and rendered, photoshopped, and manipulated into an architecturally rich conversational piece. As students you must learn to produce quickly, and understand your drawings, models, and renderings are better left dirty then in there perfect form.  Enjoy the work of Levente Gyulai after the jump!
