Junior Year Studio – Professor Alexander Kitchin

Alexander Kitchin is an adjunct lecturer and owner of elbwrm – design.fabrication.research.concrete – located in charlottesville.

It’s been mighty entertaining watching his studio work on their current project in the wood shop. They designed landscapes through a process of Grasshopper, CNC routing foam, concrete casting, and then manipulation of these 100 lb artifacts. The idea is that the fabrication of these landscapes forces the students to consider site in terms of material rather than surface.

(The entertaining part arose from when they had to hack off piles of green foam from the cured concrete.)

They are now exhibited in the Naug. Great job everyone!
