MArch Student Work

RECENT STUDIOS

Fall 2016: MArch students worked with visiting assistant professors Andres L. Hernandez and Amanda Williams, the winners of the 2015-17 PXSTL competition, and with lecturer Jonathan Stitelman on a project related to the spring 2017 PXSTL public intervention in Grand Center. Students investigated, researched, and experimented with ideas of building and unbuilding by repurposing reclaimed bricks. Learn more>>

Spring 2016: For Structural Substances + Algorithmic Assemblies, MArch students worked in groups to design and fabricate three separate installations using digital fabrication and modeling tools. Each project is site-specific but has the opportunity to be digitally and conceptually re-calibrated to address new sets of site parameters. The studio was led by lecturers Jason Butz and Lavender Tessmer. Learn More>>

Spring 2016: For a studio led by visiting professor Jan Ulmer, MArch students explored opportunities for radical adaptive reuse of the Mullanphy Emigrant Home in Old North St. Louis as a visual and performing arts space for the nonprofit organization UrbArts. Concepts sought to challenge what the 149-year-old building and space could become, and provide inspiration for an UrbArts campaign to acquire and redevelop the building. Learn more>>

Fall 2015: MArch students explored whether expanding polyurethane spray foam could be adapted to nautical applications as part of a digital fabrication studio taught by lecturer Jaymon Diaz. Students worked in pairs to design and construct a half-dozen small watercraft prototypes. Two of those prototypes were then integrated and refined to create the final design, which students constructed in the School's digital fabrication lab. Learn More>>

Spring 2015: MArch students designed and assembled a site-specific installation for the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis as part of a digital fabrication studio taught by lecturers Jason Butz and Lavender Tessmer. ACCUMULUS finds its form through the accumulation of small modules hanging above the space, similar to the formation of a cumulus cloud, to designate not only a transitional space but also a gathering place—a place for us.

Spring 2015: SECUROCRATIC FRONTIERS, taught by visiting assistant professor Stephen Mueller, suggested that recent developments in energy extraction technologies and resource logistics in the domestic interior have enabled a newly minted "securocratic" territory, where military interests and national security concerns are distributed across an expanded field of everyday life, and are shaping urban scenarios and energy infrastructure in the domestic interior. Students developed final project proposals for transformative architectural and urban interventions for prototypical sites in this emerging frontier. Learn more>>

Fall 2014: MArch students in Metamorphic Cities: Sustainable Strategies for Adaptive Reuse, led by assistant professor Catalina Freixas, responded to a call for innovative design ideas to reimagine the 21-story Railway Exchange Building, reinvigorate the surrounding area, and contribute to the continuing transformation of downtown St. Louis.

Spring 2014: MArch students in PROTO/LOGICS | Urgent Typologies set out to mine new and constructive relationships between emergent infrastructures and contemporary urban protocols in the "contested landscape," interrogating the history of oil and energy production in the United States in order to open new possibilities for the future of American cities.

Spring 2013: MArch students designed, fabricated, and constructed a new avian observatory near the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers for a studio led by Andrew Colopy and Ken Tracy. Learn more>>
