Henry Mallorca and Jeffrey Wigen, "Shade Project: Japanese Lantern," for ARCH 114 (studio II). The design objective was to create a versatile outdoor structure capable of providing adjustable shade based on the sun's location at certain times of day. Sunshine entices people outdoors and encourages them to stay in the sun as long as possible, enjoying a game of volleyball, frisbee, or croquet until the heat sends them in search of a shady reprieve. This structure provides an inviting space for relaxation and conversation while they cool off.
Jeff Petrick and Matthew Whitham, "Shade Project: Jekyll and Hyde Lounge Chair," for ARCH 114 (studio II). The goal was to create a lounge chair where two people could experience two different comfortable positions while enjoying the shade. This was achieved by making two horizontal planes that are united by one vertical plane. The sitting plane is made of corrugated plastic while the shade plane is made of cedar wood. The center unifying plane takes qualities from both planes and materials to create a two-part chair that is perfect for two people.
