    Beaux Arts Ball is an overlapping manifestation of pleasure and design. It is a charitable event with its heels buried in a 19th century desire to transcend the scope of tamed human imagination; a testimony to the feverish cerebral discipline of the original students of the Ecole des Beaux Arts.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    The LADG (Andrew HOLDER, Claus Benjamin FREYINGER, & James CHESTNUT): Consider, as a problem of material and form, a litter of piglets suckling at the teats of a plump sow. The language of formal analysis is not readily equipped to describe this situation. The disposition of one pig against another does not appear to be regulated by clear systems of repetition and adjacency. The pig bodies themselves resist decomposition as assemblages of skin and structure; they are too fat—all fat, in fact. What formal analysis struggles to rationalize, the languages of character and posture easily accommodate: the piglets nestle and suckle; the sow sprawls; obese bodies squeeze and abut one another.

    “Before the term spline came to refer to a mathematical function producing smoothness (and subsequently, in design software, to a smooth curve with control points) it was once an actual physical drafting tool, a flexible metal or wood strip with weights used to hold the spline in place. This tool developed out of necessity to design smooth, aerodynamic forms and leveraged specific material properties . . .”

Oxides from the welding process leave a rich coloration and evidence of the manual TIG welding process (joints are welded on the backside with ERCuSi-A Silicon Bronze filler rod).

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Cameron NEWNHAM: This project explores hypothetical and speculative learning environments—specifically a design campus for RMIT University, although the ideas are universal. It is a given that there may be a necessary leap of faith in understanding the project(s), but they display in a physical manner what has recently been theorised, and extend upon many of the ideas. It is intended that through these works the ideas are pushed to the extreme—to understand the potential—even if a lesser variant may be more functional.

    “A significant portion of the intellect and capital invested in architectural education over the last 10 years has gone into digital fabrication, as schools have acquired new computer numerical control (CNC) machines and faculty and students have experimented with them. The relevant arguments made by Bernard Cache, Greg Lynn, and Mario Carpo that inspired much of this work have become implicit for many instructors and some students. Always practice driven, these ideas have seeped into the profession, enabling an expanding array of pavilion projects and fabrication competitions. . . . ‘”
