Deathstroke - YSOA Seminar Research

New Haven, Connecticut


The digital modeling technique of “Kitbashing” developed by Mark Foster Gage Architects in 2013 involved the re-use of existing 3d models found online and their recombination into new, high-resolution, figural masses. This large 3d printed project, designed and produced by Yale School of Architecture graduate students, explores these kitbashing techniques through strategies involving agglomeration, figural shaving, alignment with platonic solids, and the encrustation of ghost forms to produce and object with an interior volume. The seminar students worked with Autodesk Corporation to develop advanced collaborative design techniques using their Fusion 360 and Meshmixer software platforms.  The project was a part of Mark Foster Gage’s seven-year series of “Disheveled Geometries,” research seminars at the Yale School of Architecture, which for this semester included Adam Wagoner, Junpei Okai, Dionysus Cho, Emily Bell, Elvira Hoxha, Peter Le, Anne Ma, Madelynn Ringo, and Jack Wolfe. The final three-foot-tall, single pass 3d printed model, designed by Dionysus Cho, Anne Ma and Daniel Nguyen with Mark Foster Gage, was 3d printed by Materialise in Belgium.
