Modeling For The Future

Modeling For The Future is a project that involves the local and international community sending in photos that include a structure ( a house, temple, chair). These photos are then used as inspiration to create design structures for the future. For example, a photo of a farm that includes a grain silo can be used as inspiration to create a cylindrical house of tomorrow. The house is designed and scaled using 3D design tools.  Then, the scaled house is fabricated ( physically created using AB plasticine) using a 3D printer.  Executive Director, Yvonne Shortt, will be creatively designing with the community including schools, libraries, and community centers. Then, the model designs and photos will be put into a book.  The book and the models will be on display around NYC.  To get involved please contact Yvonne at 917 597 3089
