Art in Action: The Process of Design
March 27—September, 2018
This project was curated by students in the Program in Environmental Design as part of Marianne Holbert’s Advanced Design Lab 2, a Senior Architecture Studio. Prints from the CU Art Museum are paired with interpretive designs by students to demonstrate how art can be a creative catalyst and a tool for learning. These prints by Josef Albers, Fayga Ostrower and Chryssa served as inspiration for student designs for a prospective building intended to serve as a center of interdisciplinary design education.
From sketch to sculpture or concept to building, each step of the process employs diverse materials and design techniques.
Students include: Akitomo Amai, Elena Chavez, Claire Derr, Kristopher Diaz, William France, Dominic Hathaway, Geoff Mittler, Julie Stauffer, Carson Stewart, Nile Thomson.
