Studio Poche

Studio Poché, an exhibition presented by the University of Nebraska–Lincoln College of Architecture is at KANEKO in Omaha. The show opened on June 27 and runs through August 23, 2014. Public gallery hours are Monday–Friday, 9am–5pm and Saturdays, 1–5pm.

Poché, a historical drawing technique used to illustrate architectural mass, is most often used to delineate wall, roof, and floor assemblies in architectural representation. This technique is typically used at a scale where large amounts of construction assembly information would be illegible or unnecessary. The poché space offers incredible opportunities to express design intentionality, and to embrace the performative potential of architecture.

This premise served as the point of departure for Studio Poché as students moved into this fertile territory designing two projects, Synergy Pod and FabLab. Synergy Pod explored mobile, small-scale enclosures while FabLab investigated fabrication technologies and the architectural enclosure that might house them.

Studio Poché occurred during the Fall semester of 2012 at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s College of Architecture, and was led by Assistant Professor Brian M. Kelly.
