Design Problem 1 from Arch Design Studio 2 dealt with the nine-square problem, in which students were asked to design a pavilion for the College of Architecture. While its programmatic requirements were minimal, the problem asked students to rethink how materials were used and create some performative aspects of building.

Tim Frank’s exhibit at MODA, titled Sense & Sustain -Ability, will close in a couple of days. Having been showcased for a month, Frank’s three projects concern the ideas of superimposition, infusion, and opposition. Using a variety of media, Tim presented three projects that were more than products, but exhibits of the breadth of the design process. From understanding the site in terms of climatology, using software like Ecotect, or depicting concrete in his models through his own clever mixture, Frank’s exhibition stayed true to its title. Sense and Sustain -Ability reassigned meaning to two terms that are too often misused.
In any case, words alone don’t do his exhibition justice. Enjoy select photographs and leave comments if you went or want to know more about his work, in which case you should see Tim Frank online.
