Each year since 2008, CUTMR curators travel to the University of Waterloo School of Architecture to select 3-5 chairs from the school’s innovative Chair Project, a course led by Professor Elizabeth English. Combining design and structural analysis, an idea (spurred by the students’ selection of a luminary to guide their project) and its physical manifestation, each of these transformable chairs are hand-made by third year architecture students working collaboratively with a classmate.
We are pleased to announce the chairs that will be in this year’s show:
A chair for Robert Service by Fraser Plaxton & Kunaal Mohan
A chair for Jackson Pollock by Piper Bernbaum & Meaghan Murray
A chair for Leon Trotsky by Gwendolyn Lovsted & Benjamin van Nostrand
A chair for Zimoun Jaewoo Chon & Antariksh Tandon
