Juniors Visited their Studio Project Site

Juniors Visited their Studio Project SiteStudio 3: Interior/Display/Exchange Instructor David Reddy and his students, A/L/I juniors Adel Aleali, William Altpeter, Erim Ayhan, Michael Chen, Tanner Geertsen, Ibrahim Ghulam, Adam Harris, Maegan Iamjan, Sarah Ng, and Tommy Peng visited and documented the site (an existing building on a vestigial corner of old Venice, CA) for their first, of two, studio projects, Designing the Workplace.

 

Project One – Designing the Workplace
The first project, spanning eight weeks, is the design of a mechanism for the production of value.

We live in times of massive change. The ways that we live and work are transforming. The nature of the workplace is increasingly disrupted. Individuals are becoming responsible for the creation of their own jobs, and value, without benefit of established companies or corporations. This emerging economic space values initiative, innovation, and autonomy.

Space sharing environments, where private contractors or entrepreneurs may pursue their businesses without the encumbrance of sustaining fixed overheads, are common. Some examples of this new kind of workspace are Kleverdog Coworking, Nextspace Coworking, WeWork, O-Pods, and Cross Campus.

Each student will design a temporary popup in an existing urban storefront that provides a flexible work environment for startups and independent contractors. – David Reddy, Studio 3 Instructor
