On June 7, the Street Seats: Urban Benches for Vibrant Cities model gallery exhibition opened at the Design Museum Portland. The exhibition features 1:8 scale models of proposed bench designs for the Street Seats Design Challenge. Our contribution to the exhibition is formfound, a physically form-found shell structure. To create the model a membrane was immersed in plaster of Paris, pinned, hung, and flipped.

The design team consisted of Prof. Segal, Powell Draper and Lisa Ramsburg from schlaich bergermann partner, and Demi L. Fang from MIT.
