Start Date
End Date
This is a fast-paced course with fun case studies and beautiful examples of installations that study the use and impact of pattern in different environments and applications.
Patterns are everywhere around us. We are hard-wired to see changes in pattern for survival (like seeing a lion in the grass), for getting around (like the contour lines on a topographical map), for organization (like seeing trends in spreadsheets), for industrial uses (like screens that filter sand from pebbles), for hiding (like military camouflage), and for decoration (like repeated designs in wallpaper). Once we are trained to see patterns, we begin to notice them everywhere.
This course discusses three aspects of pattern: ONE - how we tend to interact with pattern both consciously and subconsciously; TWO - how to categorize patterns according to their nature, structure, and openness; and THREE - discussing best practices in using pattern once we know how it impacts a space both aesthetically and functionally.
Furthermore, the course dives into what to ask for, and what to what out for, when considering a patterned system of panels in manufacturing as well as for developing custom patterns.
