Stomata Prototyping

The prototyping of the Stomata components looks to be promising. This project will be dealing with pneumatics so the components will have to connect to a structure in order to retain its integrity. The [R]ed[U]x Lab team has always tried to expand its portfolio of techniques and explore new options for their design work. The Stomata project looks to be an interesting examination of the new, as seen in some of the flexible plastics and pneumatic technologies, as well as evolving techniques such as the tessellation and UV lights.

TODO 2014: The People's Choice Award

Though it seems like ages ago, a couple of [R]ed[U]x Lab team members recently picked up the 2014 Toronto Design Offsite People's Choice Award for "Eyes on the Street" earlier in February. We graciously accept the elegant Herman Miller limited edition plate... but now the question is how do we divide it among the team members (if at all)...

Nuit Blanche 2014 Hints

The [R]ed[U]x Lab Team is extremely humbled and excited to have been selected to once again display their work at the Bata Shoe Museum during the 2014 Nuit Blanche in Toronto. Two [R]ed[U]x Lab projects, Sine and Stomata, will be displaying some interesting and innovative projects that showcase the design innovation and digital fabrication acumen the Ryerson Architectural Science students have. These two groups have big shoes to fill as they continue the legacy of success in drawing attention to the Bata Shoe Museum this year.

From an interactive acoustic environment to a fragile immersive synthetic ecosystem, this year's [R]ed[U]x Lab projects look to be an exciting addition to the complement of distinguished artists in this upcoming Nuit Blanche 2014. Once again the call will go out to our team members and students in the Department of Architectural Science for help in these initiatives so keep the
