Welcome to the Boston Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.
Taught by Jared Ramsdell AIA, of Touloukian Touloukian Inc., Multi(ply), a design class taught at Wentworth Institute of Technology, allows fourth-year architecture students to focus on everyday objects, including lamps and pavillions. The purpose of the course is to promote research in how geometries can be fashioned with simple tools and materials to increase the performance and efficiency of each constructed object.
For this exhibition, students have created light fixture shades that look at how lighting output would directly affect the physical environment through its variability, movement, and comfort. Visitors are encouraged to illuminate and experience these light fixtures while exploring the Salt Gallery.
