Lilac Surface    Critic:  Mark Foster Gage    Project Team: Nicholas Kehagias,  RJ Tripodi   This seminar was carried out in association with the research organization, ‘The Digital Stone Project,’ and the robotic research wing of the Garfagnana marble quarry located an hour north of Pisa, Italy. The seminar was structured around research into the form-making potential of digital carving technologies applied to architecture’s most historically valued and stable material - solid marble.  Following a period of research into the sculptural properties of marble, a speculative project was developed in association with technicians and artisans at the Garfagnana quarry. A series of mock-ups and prototypes were produced over the course of the semester, and photo-realistic renderings were used to determine lighting and texture effects.
