Fridays@4: Ontologically Oriented Objects Design Challenge Kickoff

PSU School of Architecture kicks off a week-long design challenge at Fridays@4 on April 13, which will culminate in an exhibition, critique, and talk by object designers Tim Parsons and Jessica Charlesworth on April 20 for Design Week Portland. At Fridays@4 on April 13, teams of students, alumni, and faculty will receive an identical object (to be revealed at the event on April 13) and a set of design parameters, and they will begin the work of transforming the object into a new form, of their own design. A week later, on April 20, the transformed objects will be on display in Shattuck Hall at 3pm.

About Fridays@4:

Each Friday at 4pm during most of the academic term, PSU School of Architecture students and faculty gather together to hear from professional designers and architects, academics, visiting artists, innovators, and students in the program, with refreshments and updates from faculty and your student leaders. Fridays@4 is a perfect way to wrap up each week of intense creativity in studio, and get inspired for the productive weekend ahead.

We encourage attendees to bring their own beverage cup in order to reduce waste in Shattuck Hall.

Free and open to the public.
