    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.

    Brian RICHTER: In recent years Lexington, Kentucky has become an increasingly unique mid-size urban center with incredible cultural, social and economic potential. Much of this potential may be attributed to Lexington’s youth and leadership, who are responsible for initiating many of the proposed city projects that have the ability to build Lexington as a regional urban model.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Chico NICHOLS: Tangible Projection combines a tangible field condition of translucent strings at a variety of densities with an intangible two dimensional projection. The combination of the strings and the projection allow for the projection, until now a two dimensional medium, to manifest itself in three dimensions. The different densities of the strings create high density areas that act as a screen to catch the projection and are placed in combination with low density areas that allow a person to occupy the space of the projection.

  • UK/CoD Workshop
    lexington KENTUCKY

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Sift Studio/adam FURE: In this weekend-long workshop students mixed multiplicitous material narratives through the construction of heterogeneous, saturated objects. The material palette was foreign, forcing students to develop novel potentials out of seemingly strange matter. Initial experimentation focused on the material’s latent tendencies to aggregate (how it naturally bundles, bunches, bends, and folds for example). Students tested, recorded, and codified techniques of assembly—ultimately coercing the unwieldy matter into working systems of aggregation that were supported by designed substructures.

    mike McKAY: The PERFORMA Studio at the UK College of Design is an intensive research and fabrication studio run by professor Mike McKay. McKay’s research work involves the investigation of material systems and design strategies that create multi-performative material systems utilizing optimization, aggregation and efficiency. Simple units and semi-finished materials are physically tested in order to extract potential performative characteristics and limits.

    craig CHAMBERLAIN, victor SMITH, madelynn RINGO: Translations (a workshop series hosted by Kyle Miller, Assistant Professor of Architecture at the University of Kentucky, College of Design).

    “Translations” is a series of lectures and workshops organized around the concept of employing multiple modes of making, a diverse set of design techniques and mixed media within the architectural design process. Multiplication and hybridity of making ensures a cyclical design process in which concepts are translated from state to state, opening the possibility for interpretation, intuition, and innovation within the process of architectural design.
