After riding a super successful debut at the Columbia University GSAPP: End of Year Show...
come one, come all down to Governor's Island this weekend! FY-Langes, a digitally fabricated installation will be showing at FIGMENT .
"Constructed almost exclusively out packing foam, FY-Langes is a tactile, interactive, reconfigurable installation designed and built by students at Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation."
a small blurb leaked on the CC:GSAPP website last night. and more information can be found on the FY-Langes blog!
As an alumni of the microcosm studio, I wanted to reach back to my roots and some of my favorite people to shed some light on a fabrication installation I'm involved in at GSAPP (columbia university).
It's called: FY!-Langes.
and here's our media abstract:
FY-Langes is an installation that is currently being designed and produced by 10 students enrolled in the Fast Pace/Slow Space technology course at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation (GSAPP), and will be on display on campus in the middle of May of 2012.
Our aim is to push the boundaries of digital fabrication and experiment with a non-conventionial material, and push the boundary of its performance in order to create an occupiable structure. The goal is to marry non-conventional cutting techniques with advanced digital design tools in a singular project.
please check out our site @ fylanges.com and help us turn this into reality!!!

We have been hammering away at our workshop above Stonefly Brewery for the last few weeks an our full-scale ceiling installation is nearing completion: wood has been cut, carved, burned, and sealed and the hardware is in the works. The completed piece will measure out to 12' x 4'. Come to our gallery opening next week at BYO. More photos and renderings to come....
