Building with Gravity

Hosted by: Michael Szivos

Yale comes to you for the weekend! When it comes to building, gravity is not usually your friend. In most cases, gravity is a force that architects must push back against. Join Super star architect Michael Szivos in learning how to design with gravity in mind. Using laser cut mylar, Michael will demonstrate how to develop digital tools for drawing and designing various parts for fabrication and construction. If you’re in the business of building or just interested in how stuff work- this is for you!

Bubbles, Building and Structure Making

Hosted by: Michael Szivos

As a Yale Professor of Design, Michael Szivos knows a thing or two about design and built spaces. Join him for a hands on designing and building workshop, where you will base your design on none other than the innocuous bubble, building a lightweight structure out of laser cut cardboard. Michael will demonstrate how to use digital tools in fabrication and construction. Everyone will work as a team to then assemble the structure. Get ready to get handsy!
