Lebbeus Woods’ work came up today during discussion and the following project seems very relevant to the current explorations of the Unit. The first one, his series on “Metrical Instruments”, were in his own words “tectonic constructions for measuring the reflection of light”. Reminiscent of the traditional sundial, these models use reflective surfaces, lines, the 3rd and even 4th dimension to tell the story of light.
