Joo-Hyun Park

DArch Candidate

Joo-Hyun Park, third year doctoral candidate, was awarded third place in the recent NuPath Sculpture Competition for his design entitled, “Demountable Box.”  This prefab wood structure is constructed with CNC cut recycled lumber and connected with steel rods.  The box-shaped design allows for assembling, dissembling, and re-assembling into an assortment of pleasurable socializing configurations providing for unique experiences in a revitalized outdoor space.  It also serves as an art piece with the idea of memorializing loved ones, with elements of sustainability and creative installation.  His third place award included a $200 prize.

 

The Nupath Sculpture competition provided the opportunity for art and architecture students to collaborate in designing a single sculpture or installation to provide people with disabilities the support needed to live, work, learn, grow and participate to their fullest potential in their communities.  The awarded design concepts and ideas have the potential of being built in the later phases of the currently planned Outdoor Sculpture Park on New Boston Street in Woburn, MA.

 

NuPath Inc. is a leader in the human services arena, providing a network of creative day services and residential options for people living with developmental disabilities, autism spectrum disorders and acquired brain injury.

 

Joo-Hyun credits his work from the advice he received from Professor David Rockwood.
