This is a building system study of the relationship between panels and connectors. The connection points in the wood panels are carved out to create a contoured relationship that makes a fluid transition with the nodes of the steel connectors. The joints are flexible and able to bend to create a dynamic surface. The modularity of the system allows for a multitude of patterns to emerge when the pieces are organized in different ways. This system can be used as a stand-alone structure or as a new cladding on an existing structure.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
