This video highlights an exciting collaboration between OESH and the School of Architecture at the University of Virginia. The World is Flat-3-d Printing Edition, a class offered at the Architecture School and headed by Melissa Goldman, is exploring new ways in which this technology can be used in architectural fabrication. Mirroring the design processes used in architecture, this project has provided a challenging exercise for the students through the complexities of designing a shoe which is not only functional and well-developed but also aesthetically pleasing. Dr. Kerrigan’s expertise in a field unfamiliar to these students has allowed them to understand fabrication in a completely different way!
