This was a graduate student project by David Ruffing for Beth Blostein's ARCH 341 course, Autumn 2005.
"This group project explored how a single material could be manipulated to act as both a skin and a structure. Using my initial idea of a continuous pattern of stacked dowels to generate both skin and structure, we constructed a wall from recycled cardboard carpet tubes. Using different tube configurations, we were able to produce varying wall transparencies and to explore types of spatial enclosures. We allowed the nature of the material to produce these affects." ---- David Ruffing
