This event is organized and presented by Jefferson.
The exhibit presents ongoing student projects from the IDEA (interdisciplinary design and experimental architecture) Studio of Philadelphia University. This year’s studio explores cross-disciplinary frontiers between architecture, textile design, and engineering. The work challenges conventional construction systems and translates nature inspired design concepts through computational design and analyses, textile techniques, and digital fabrication, into novel architectural systems. Scaled mock-up models highlight the potential of novel design approaches that merge hand- and digital-craft, and new materials into high-performance architecture.
