PlusFarm Summer Studio

An internationally recognized design and fabrication studio that works at the intersection of digital and material design with actual construction.

Perrysburg, NY, 2013

A week-long immersive summer studio was conducted to craft an architectural installation benefiting the farming community of Perrysburg, Upstate New York. The objective was to forge a serene structure fostering harmony between humanity and the natural environment of a farm estate.

Twelve participants were chosen globally based on their portfolios and letters of intent. Utilizing advanced digital design tools, the cohort undertook site analysis, generated sketches, and crafted multiple models. This culminated in the erection of a wooden pavilion atop a hill, serving as both a lookout point and shelter.
