Two x Two was a design-build studio project completed during the Spring semester of 2016 by seventy-seven 2nd year architecture students.
Five weeks were spent designing, developing, fabricating, and assembling a large scale installation for the College of Design atrium. The project aimed to redefine the atrium as a public space by introducing new programs and challenging conventions of how the space is used.
In a system lead and organized by students, fabrication took less than three weeks and assembly a matter of a few days to bring the project to completion prior to its opening ceremony. In total, over 2100 individual pieces of lumber derived from 200 pages of drawings made up the installation. The final installation was well-received and became a popular place for individuals to congregate and share experiences.
