Exuberant exhibition of the final graduate work of FIU Architecture students in a design studio led by MBUS researcher and Architecture professor Nick Gelpi. Student explore building proposals for sites along the Miami River.
This exhibition reveals the results of a Spring 2018 advanced graduate architectural design studio that explored material concepts for architecture derived from the structures of metals. The design projects propose new recreation-centers at various sites along the Miami River. Initial forms and
organizational derive from famed metallurgist Cyril Stanley Smith, whose micro-structural analysis of metals provide unique insights into metals as a material. Students explored how the structures of metals provide new potentials for the ways we design architecture.
