As part of Architecture's presence at the CCA booth at the 2013 Maker Faire, instructor Andrew Kudless presented 16 "eggs" students created during his advanced studio course.
Kudless explained, "People could grasp onto the egg concept (unlike robotics). The fabrication processes for the 16 eggs involved using a different digital technique to illustrate a specific kind of fabrication: CNC milling, 3D printing, or shaped by hand."
Students were challenged to spend time making five eggs over four weeks. Each student had to really think about how they wanted to make the project in terms of designing, planning, and choosing a process. Unlike other projects, the end product was not the emphasis; it was the making process that Kudless wanted to help students appreciate.
