    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    kevin patrick MCCLELLAN + armando ARAIZA: Embrace is a 1/2 scale prototype portion of a larger design concept. Within the Performative Connections studio, the students explored connections as a generative tool.



    Ultimately the design of this object evolved from research within the studio with all the students working in concert. The design is intended to function as a screen that would allow for privacy and provide loose enclosures distributed throughout the library.
