Modular Bench Designs To Be Featured at ART SAN DIEGO Contemporary Art Fair 2013 Nov 7-10. Design emphasizes sustainable techniques and materials

As we consider new plans for sustainable design, green infrastructure and cities the relatedness of artful thinking and application are vital ingredients. The shaping of interdisciplinary leaders is avant garde’ but brings a lens to the functionality and new realities of resource, energy, utility, space and environment. The artful interdisciplinary approach of the “NewSchool of Architecture and Design Students Develop Modular Bench Designs For Art San Diego Fair” is an expression of sociocultural integration.

Archinect Academia reported the “NewSchool of Architecture and Design (NSAD) students that developed a 12-foot-high modular bench design that will be on display at the ART SAN DIEGO Contemporary Art Fair in San Diego’s Balboa Park Activity Center.”

The work of students in collaborative effort with ART SAN DIEGO, produced 40 benches incorporating sustainable design practices and materials to integrate within the “ambiance of the fair’s center lounge area”.

“The center lounge space, Noble Environmental Technologies/ECOR® Lead Developer Matt Arrigo, an NSAD alumni, and company founder Robert Noble have designed and created a central seating area and other sectional pieces entirely with ECOR® products.  The modular bench design allows for multiple configurations that can suit the changing needs of the space.”

The background of ART SAN DIEGO,  is defined as the premier contemporary art fair attended by more than 10,000 people.  As sustainability is unleashed across disciplines the nexuses of sustainable emulsion is produced for new standards.

This year ART SAN DIEGO is demonstrating the future of sustainable-friendly events by coordinating with several partners, including the NSAD students, to set a new standard for creating high design temporary furniture and event infrastructures using recycled materials.

The work of sustainable solutions is a collaborative effort as the intersection of discipline and approaches shape the space and industry.
