Abstraction and Pattern
TCU interior design at the sophomore level just keeps getting better. My students are designing a light filtering screen through the development of a repetitive pattern derived from design precedents and abstraction from the natural world. The above drawings illustrate the study of a natural object to search for structure and repetitive elements. The second drawing illustrates another students interpretation of abstraction in a manner similar to a designer practicing about 100 years ago. I'm looking forward to the outcomes!
