Day 2 – Interactivity with Corian(R)

In Uncategorized on September 20, 2010 at 20:03

We had a fantastic kick-start on day 1 with the basics set right. Today, We’ll Look at how the iconic designer Zaha Hadid has used Corian(R) as a medium to de-construct conventional cooking environment into an interactive, Hi-Tech environment. We’ll also look at the interactive interpretations with Corian(R) of Morris Sato, Ron Arad, Amanda Levete, Ross Lovegrove, Marc Newson & Karim Rashid. This will be followed by a group discussion. I have re-scheduled this topic in advance as I feel that students will take some cues for their designs from these futuristic ideas. Post Lunch groups will continue with their explorations in the workshop.
P.S.Deconstruction, is an approach to design that attempts to view objects in bits and pieces. Some prominent luminaries in this school of thought are -Peter Eisenman, Frank Gehry, Richard Meier, Rem Koolhaas.

During the day, when we are too tired, we’ll see how architect Ted Mosby(HIMYM) tackles his dilemma of being an idealist or giving up to commercialism.
