Architecture Students Create Spatial Experiences

Author: Kayla Cropper

Professor Robert Trempe’s capstone course Architectural Design VI gives students the opportunity to take on a special topic in architectural design. “The students are expected to learn about new techniques in full-scale architectural manufacturing including the translation of complex computational geometries and physical production employing CNC [Computer Numerical Control] technologies,” Trempe said. For this studio, students are required to complete two installations, “Patterned Porosity” and “Sequential Conversations.” For “Patterned Porosity,” students used Styrofoam insulation to design a group installation in the window bay of the corridor between the Tyler Cafe and the Architecture building.

Mark Shetabi, Assistant Professor, Has Upcoming Exhibition

Author: Kayla Cropper

Assistant Professor of Painting at Tyler, Mark Shetabi, has an upcoming exhibition in New York City. The Grand Tour will be Shetabi’s fourth solo show presented by the Jeff Bailey Gallery. It will feature new sculptures and paintings that explore ideas about travel, transition and escape. Many of the pieces depict places or technology of the past that have now become obsolete. The sculptures that serve as points of departure, Campers, and the painting Girl on a Bicycle feature styles that could be old or new. The exhibit also features the sculpture Arcade and the painting Caspian Sea Hyatt. Both portray a certain technology or style from another time that are now outdated Shetabi depicted objects and images in a way that invites further consideration. By using painting and sculpture, he creates a permanent place that resists the eventual disappearance of the things from the past. Read More

Two GAID Students Awarded Prestigious Fellowship

Author: Kayla Cropper

Two GAID graduating MFA students, Emily Colburn and Lydia Nichols, have been awarded a prestigious fellowship from Chronicle Books in San Francisco. “I applied for this fellowship because working for Chronicle Books would be a dream of mine,” Colburn said. “They create beautiful, contemporary and playful books/products.” Nichols will be their Children’s Design Fellow, while Colburn will be their Marketing Design Fellow. At first, Colburn applied to be in the Food & Drink department because of her love for food. “They saw my application and recommended me for the Marketing position, which I’m thrilled about!” Colburn said. There were only five total fellow positions available this year, so they had to be very competitive. “I had to submit a printed profile, a statement and a resume,” Colburn said. “I created a book with all my recent graduate work.” Read More
