Cranbrook Degree Show + Massie House

Tonight is the Cranbrook Degree Show preview - always one of the most inspiring exhibits of the year.

Here & Now: Cranbrook Academy of Art 2008 Graduate Degree Exhibition
April 19 - May 10, 2008
Opening Reception: Friday, April 18, 6-8pm
Cranbroook Art Museum
39221 Woodward Avenue, Bloomfield Hills, MI 48303

+ Opening to the public on May 3rd is American House 08, a full-scale prefabricated house on the lawn of Cranbrook Art Museum by Architect-in-Residence William E. Massie.

An American House 08 embodies Massie’s innovative architectural practice through his use of computer-based fabrication technology for efficient, precise and customized buildings. The house, with its two glass elevations that unite the interior experience with the exterior landscape, is defined by a pair of volumetric anomalies that were intricately generated through a Computer Numerically Controlled machine. Massie uses the surface of these complex forms to capture light from multiple video projectors, creating a flexible ambient environment for the occupants.
