Materials Decoded: Amanda Williams & Illinois Institute of Technology Students

Materials Decoded – Visual artist and trained architect Amanda Williams will run an IIT Undergraduate Studio class addressing the social, cultural and economic value of the materials commonly and uncommonly use to create buildings. The class will conduct their materials lab from the Art Center’s Reva and David Logan Studio and feature selected developments made in the class in Gallery 5.  The architectural objects in the exhibition will evolve and rotate as the research into materials digs deeper throughout the run of the show.

Studio 2 will host the architects-in residence and will be open to the public to witness the process of developing new ideas in repurposing materials. Here, the students will research materials and explore alternative uses for brick remnants as well as create viable materials to replace or repair brick. As a result, the show will have a pedagogical component that presents architecture, and even existing buildings and materials, as an evolving field and arena of thought. This exhibition will run the duration of the Architecture Biennial and provide a South Side platform to highlight emerging practices in art, architecture and design.

Materials Decoded is held in partnership with the Chicago Architecture Biennial.
