Several of the chairs from Arch 365, under the direction of Professor Elizabeth English, will be part of the annual Come Up To My Room event. Several graduates will also be exhibiting. Please join in and support our student work!
Each year since 2008, CUTMR curators travel to the University of Waterloo School of Architecture to select 3-5 chairs from the school’s innovative Chair Project, a course led by Professor Elizabeth English. Combining design and structural analysis, an idea (spurred by the students’ selection of a luminary to guide their project) and its physical manifestation, each of these transformable chairs are hand-made by third year architecture students working collaboratively with a classmate.
We are pleased to announce the chairs that will be in this year’s show:
- A chair for Robert Service by Fraser Plaxton & Kunaal Mohan
- Jackson Pollock chair by Piper Bernbaum & Meaghan Murray
- Leon Trotsky chair by Gwendolyn Lovsted & Benjamin van Nostrand
- Zimoun chair by Jaewoo Chon & Antariksh Tandon.
