Boston, MA | 2007
SsD was selected to design and exhibit recent work in the BAC gallery on Newbury Street in Boston as well as teach a cross-discplinary studio as Distinguished Visiting Critics. Funded by the Hideo Sasaki Foundation, the work revolved around the notion of 'socio-structural' – how structural solutions can converge with ideas of shaping social space. Large scale models that tested the principles at a human scale became the center of the exhibit. Translucent panels lit from within exhibiting additional project images modulated the view from the active storefront into the gallery space.
Digital fabrication techniques were used to move beyond the scale of the model to the architectural scale artifact.
Illimunated display panels transform the visual grain of the existing storefront to either foreground the panels or allow views to the objects in the background.
