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!
