Rumple Zone


University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA



At USC, Rumple Zone investigates a new order, one at the intersection of multiple opposing forces: organic versus computational, hand versus machine, and biological versus mechanical. The installation is constructed out of powder-coated aluminum cut into geometries that are at once the form and the structure. This structural methodology was tested in previous work. Here, the assembly reanimates a lowly corner condition and small reveal—amplifying a minor flaw in the building’s architecture.
