Woven in the Woods

Jute twine, fallen branches and twigs

My senior year architecture studio coincided with the COVID-19 pandemic, stripping my colleagues and I of the classic collaborative studio environment; therefore, we made our own studio in the woods of Amity, Connecticut. Through an independent yearlong study that honored and embodied unique design and art-making pedagogies before customizing our own syllabus, and from multi-sensory explorations of the forest, myself and my collaborator Sam Oldshue made an intervention that could immerse the body while honoring the structures given to us by the surrounding nature.
