Fayetteville Arkansas | 2015 | Temporary Installation
Fayz Box is a testimonial recording booth for the Fay Jones School of Architecture + Design. The Dean required the Fayz Box be deconstructed, stored easily, and reconstructed quickly throughout the academic year. To accomplish this, the project is a knock-down kit of components that can be assembled by a layman with limited knowledge of the project. When disassembled and flat-packed for storage, the 4’x8’x8’ installation fits into a 4’x8’x8” volume. The logistical constraints meant that the construct is a light frame and a thin envelope. The design superimposes competing patterns of formal and material content that create depth in the flat; an attempt to project substantial volume within a skin. Each “layer” has its own logic of fabrication, organization, and articulation.
