The accompanying catalog to an 2010 exhibition at the Shaker Museum. The exhibit, titled “Material Manifestations — cultural and material effects of Shaker artifacts,” is based on a semester-long study of Shaker artifacts in an architectural design studio coordinated by Andrew Saunders, assistant professor of architecture. Each student in the studio chose a Shaker artifact — tools, furniture, containers —and conducted a study of the piece including a digital generative analysis drawing. That study informed the students as they designed and modeled a hypothetical 10,000-square-foot archive and exhibition center for the Shaker Museum and Library.
