DECON_RECON
2011

In the deconstruction of a 150-year old barn addition and the building of a mobile shade structure at Yestermorrow Design / Build School in Warren, VT in the summer of 2010; the students and instructors engaged in a tandem process of deconstruction and design / build. The project led to a method in which assessable results and methods were considered in depth and were laid out within a larger structure for conveying the temporal possibilities for salvaging and designing with reused materials. It was the confluence of that practice and the group design / build procedure in a compressed amount of time that led to a materials transformation and use schema that hints at more universal possibilities in the future.
