  inFORM exhibit  
(College of Architecture and Urban Studies)

inFORM: a language for form, designed and produced by Virginia Tech second-year industrial design students, is now on display. Industrial design faculty members Mitzi Vernon, Akshay Sharma, and Martha Sullivan worked with the 40 students to create the exhibition.

The exhibit advances the form families concept, developed by Joseph Ballay, industrial designer and partner at MAYA Design and emeritus professor at Carnegie Mellon University, by reshaping a foundation curriculum that pushes forward a language for form embedded in form-matrix. Form-matrix addresses the qualitative nature of form-giving while developing semantics, syntax, and a morphology for this spatial language.

Selections in the exhibit emerged from a second-year studio and a triangulation of support courses. The works are organized in eight sections corresponding to five form exercises (linear flowform; planar flowform; solid flowform; solid rotoform; and tectoform) and three form products (platter; hand tool; and citrus juicer). The names of the exercises were created by Ballay as part of his form families nomenclature.
