Kirk, M. (2017). Qualitative Collaboration.  Proceedings: Poetics+Pragmatism. 19-26.

Qualitative Collaboration explored the design process of the Cal Poly Fall 2016 Third-year design studio: Architecture as Organism.  It demonstrated the role of biomimicry and production of form in architectural design which invited the expertise of Material Science students into the studio.  Such investigations not only exposed the students to design inputs as form-making but challenged them to question the material palettes they chose for peformance.
