Architecture In The Making

Design Research, California College of the Arts

Students in California College of the Arts’ Integrated Building Design studio developed proposals for a new building for REALM Charter School in Berkeley, California. Along with students, instructors Adam Marcus, Margaret Ikeda, and Evan Jones collaborated with Pier 9 workshop to produce full-scale building envelope prototypes from 18-gauge steel. Advanced fabrication techniques were used to address specific performance and design requirements including ventilation, temperature control, light and privacy.

Working at 1:1 scale allowed the students to develop a comprehensive understanding of the performance, detailing and assembly of the façades and to explore pragmatic ways to integrate digital design and fabrication technologies with existing architectural practices.
