Truth in making an architectural inquiry by Judy Lee
Published on April 19, 2012
Today we show you a really interesting project made by Judy Lee. We could say this is an experimental project inside the fashion design. She is a 5th year architecture student at USC. She did it in the earlier this semester, for her design studio, Truth in Making: An Architectural Inquiry. The project focused on material exploration and generative detailing. The project parameter was to use the provided jacket pattern and make a jacket out of two materials at most. She chose to use hot glue, and landed on the forming of hot glue dots after numerous experiments with other forms of the hot glue. The dots are basically glued onto each other with no secondary support. The glue was formed on a teflon surface (brown reusable baking sheets) then peeled off as sheets to finally be tailored into a jacket simliar to the piecing together of fabric to make clothes. At the end all the jackets were exhibited at USC and the A+D museum. Simple, easy and beautiful!
