Section 001 is collaborative studio made up of Industrial Design and Architecture students at the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning. Headed by professors John Dixon and Stephen Slaughter, and UC DAAP’s Director of Design, Gjoko Muratovski, this studio has been tasked with designing the creative studio spaces of the near future.
The studio is focusing on the Communication Design studios in DAAP, as part of a grant to transform the current studios into an inspiring and productive destination. Based on Section 001’s own research, case studies, and industry benchmarking, the studio created objectives that furthered the student’s modes of work by defining the most conducive environments and tools. Section 001 then designed and fabricated a collection of furniture, objects, and spatial layouts which will be showcased at ICFF in May 2018.
