Project 2: Applied Design: Furniture/Architectural Design
Points possible: 15 points
Materials: Cardboard, hot glue
Scale: varying dimensions measuring a minimum of 3 ft. x 3 ft. x 5 ft.
Methodologies: Using only cardboard, create a designed piece of furniture that has architectural implications. The design should have interesting form, engage space, and texture. There is no color. The cardboard should not have any visible signs of what it once was. All folds, bends and cuts must be made by the artist. Hot glue must be applied in a careful and professional manner. The piece must exist in space in a considered way, and have structural integrity.
Evaluation: The innovation in the design, the aesthetic quality of the rhythm and movement of the design, and the craftsmanship and integrity of how materials are applied. Visual vocabulary of your design can include continuity, contrast, economy, emphasis, integration, pattern, proportion, symmetry, transition, unity and variety. The methods by which you incorporate these aesthetic considerations will contribute or detract from your initial design.
