Exhibition: The Chair Project

Fall 2013 Junior Independent Work Studio: Exhibition
Professor: Jesse Reiser
Curator and Assistant Instructor: Dorit Aviv
"Throughout the history of modern architecture, furniture has served as the most concise representation of an architect's design principles. While these principles could be applied to projects at any scale, the social, material, geometric, and aesthetic forces underlying an architect's disciplinary project here find their most poignant resolution. Given the relatively small scale of the endeavor, it is the intention of the studio that each architect will produce a piece of furniture at full scale. This does not imply an uncritical return to a craft ethos (though craft as a cognitive and technical procedure is very necessary) rather it suggests a form of ‘management’ that would marry techniques and materials derived in the computational environment with material practices."
Exhibition on view at James S. Hall '34 Memorial Gallery, Butler College, Princeton University, February 10-19
