Material objects and Assemblies: The design of this performative object –BENCH – has a material tectonic that is translated from the material precedent: The Teshima Art Museum by Ryue Nishizawa. The project was divided in two phases; Design and Representation: The tectonic of the bench takes the surface finish from the museum and re-interprets the reflective and matte as two different materials –plastic for reflective and fabric for matte. For Fabrication and Realization: The Bench is defined by its construction process –which was directly derived from the casting process of the museum.
