OSWall at the Minnesota State Fair

Although we didn't carve a model of OSWall out of butter (we really wanted to), we did have the opportunity to share our prototyping research with Minnesota State Fair attendees on September 1. Recent graduate from UMN's School of Architecture and OSWall "Design Your Own App" competition winner, John Steingraeber (left), HouMinn's own Dave Hultman (right), and Marc (taking the picture) attended the event. All of UMN's activities from this year's State Fair can be found here


TEX-FAB: Repeat - Digital Fabrication Competition 

Blair will be a juror for the upcoming international design competition REPEAT, presented by TEX-FAB. The competition is open to all and the winning entry will be built, exhibited and subsequently given to the Winner. The design and fabrication of the piece will be paid for in full by TEX-FAB and installed to coincide with the TEX-FAB exhibition REPEAT, in February 2011. TEX-FAB is run by Andrew Vrana (Houston), Brad Bell (Dallas/Fort Worth), and Kevin Patrick McClellan (San Antonio). All three are professors and practitioners and all three do outstanding work in both practice and academia.

Watch it wiggle

Pretty tough to top this one. University of Minnesota recent graduates Amber Sausen and John Steingraeber surprised us at a recent graduation pig roast by pulling out this one-quarter scale OSWall "app" made out of orange Jell-O! The best app idea yet? Could be.

In related news, we'll be posting the results of our OSWall "Design Your Own App" Competition soon, so check back.  Three winners were recently on display in New York at the Pratt Manhattan Gallery's "Envelop{e}s" Exhibition
