New Generation of Transformable Design:
Student work on exhibit at Harvard GSD

February 2013

Harvard Graduate School of Design’s fall 2012 semester included a new course taught by Chuck Hoberman, ‘Transformable Design Methods.’ Hoberman led his students through the principles that underlie transformable objects, giving them the opportunity to explore intersections between design, engineering and mathematics. As the course progressed, students gained insight through a process of constant prototyping and testing, culminating in semester-long projects to build their own physically transformative designs.

You are invited to view their results at Harvard GSD’s Gund Hall, on display through February 24th, with an opening to be held on February 11th from 6:30-8:00pm.

U2 360° tour, featuring the Expanding Video Screen, comes to a close after over two years
Because of the tour’s immense success – receiving critical acclaim and continually selling out shows – U2 360º was extended to become a two-year globe-trotting jaunt that included 110 concerts and demanded a travelling crew of 150 to implement.

As U2’s band-members took the stage each night, the behind-the-scenes team would be already at work setting up one of three 29,000 sq ft ‘Claw’ superstructures at the next venue.

Then, only hours before the show, rapid assembly of the Expanding Video Screen would commence. During the ever-evolving show, the 3,800 square foot elliptical display would grow into a seven story cone.

The tour ended on July 30th with a final show in Moncton, Canada.
