In a nearly empty lot off Third Street, students are sawing, hammering, and putting the finishing touches on a two-bedroom house. This house is the region’s contribution to this year’s Solar Decathlon competition…a contest sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy that will send 20 collegiate teams from around the world—and their houses—to California next month for judging. The house under construction in Louisville was designed, engineered and built largely by students from the U of L, University of Kentucky and Ball State.

Designer Furniture for the Center for Media Design
“i.M.A.D.E designed, fabricated, and installed custom machined plywood and aluminum work pods for the Center for Media Design unit at Ball State University. Designed primarily in Rhino and Grasshopper, the geometries are informed from a zero-waste strategy of cutting small undulating strips from full plywood sheets, eliminating plywood off-cut waste. This “slice and dice” fabrication method reinforces the natural properties and aesthetic of plywood striations, while creating gradient effects of varying thickness and porosity, that change dynamically over time, lighting conditions, and vantage point.”
