Merletti Design by Elena Manferdini
This installation was designed by the Los Angeles-based Italian Architect, Elena Manferdini. Her design explores the intricacies of lace making at a scale of the Sci-arc Gallery.
Matt along with other Sci-arc students contributed to the design process, fabrication, and installation of the exhibition.

The redBARN installation is both a rigorous analysis of place and a sensual experience. The project, located on a privately owned farm on the north side of Indianapolis, is site specific in the truest sense; what Robert Irwin might refer to as ‘‘site conditioned response’’ . . . ‘‘where the sculptural response draws all of its cues (reasons for being) from its surroundings.’’2 Liberated from programmatic constraints, experience of place was favored over rational thought as a point of departure for the project. Students were asked to look for and to ‘‘see’’ the potential in the existing space, ultimately grounding their observations in the very real and very tangible demands of constructing the full-scale project.
Alexis Rochas and a group of Sci-arc students designed, fabricated, and installed this pavilion to shade the crowd for the graduation ceremony. The mesh material stretches between structural members and folds down at the front where the podium is located.
Installed : 2007
Matt was part of the fabrication team involved with installing the structure and mesh canopy.
