suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
evan m LITVIN + andreas TJELDFAAT: in our exploration of surface-form derived from a logic-based composition, we were initially drawn to both the fragility and translucent properties that coffee filters offer. the complexity of this project comes from the strata of organizational components starting with the most basic element: the cone.
university of pennsylvania school of design
studio instructor: simon KIM
from there, the cone is combined with other cones of varying opacities and diameters in order to form the module from which the n+1 growth pattern is derived. the overall composition can be broken down into three basic pieces with the middle serving as a revolving node from which the top and bottom grow.
