Thinkfast Exhibit


The exhibition showcases and collectively deconstructs all stages of the conceptual design process, with sketches and built works by students, early-career practitioners and such well-established designers. From rough to more resolved, the show traces layers of the designer’s investment as an idea first becomes visible both through traditional as well as more contemporary imaging methods. The interdisciplinary collection is to be exhibited at three distinguished academic venues (Ball State University in Indiana, Kansas State University, and the School of Design Strategies at Parsons in New York City) in the 2015-2016 academic year.

"Peak Experience is an exciting installation by ATLAS Lab that was created for the San Francisco Market Street Prototyping Festival – a 3 Day event that took place in April showcasing 50 prototype projects.

Drawing from the nearly 53 hills that frame San Francisco’s most diverse and engaging neighborhoods, Peak Experience reconceives the hills of San Francisco into a series of varying and undulating mounds that frame a mix of uses that promote the integration of play into traditional street models."
