Goop-sy!

(with Kevin Pazik)

Princeton University: Jesse Reiser

Spring 2015

 

Goop-sy! was a material based design exploration as part of Jesse Reiser’s design seminar. This project sought to redefine Mies’ unbuilt Mannheim theater through the material lack of control which goop embodies. In filtering goop through various ceiling panels, different affective qualities were gained. The architecture took on a temporal quality that allowed various different programmatic activities to emerge based on the operation of the theater. As chandeliers become columns, the occupants experience a different spatial quality depending on the choreography of the goop in relation to the performance.
