This site is a platform for the ongoing work of University of Florida School of Architecture graduate seminar and its participants in exploring, discussing, and experimenting with contemporary issues of craft using furniture as the vehicle for design and fabrication.
Furniture maintains a critical link with architecture, both as bookending the smaller scale of form and space as it engages human occupation and use, and as a scaled distillation of the evolving interplay between form, materiality and fabrication. Within the Modernist movement furniture became a focused study by both architects and industrial designers between material form and the methods of industrial production. Today’s advancements in CAD/CAM design fabrication present new questions regarding the dialectic of human and machine, and in turn new challenges and new opportunities in the exploration of craft.
