Text description provided by the architects. As an update to last year's post featuring Memory Cloud as the winning commission awarded to RE:site and METALAB by Texas A&M University for the new Memorial Student Center 12th Man Hall, they have shared with us their most recent images upon the completion of their installation this February. Located in a place of deep traditions that are played out on the football field at every game and in the everyday lives of students, will create the imagery that will be played within the layers of the LED matrix at different speeds and durations. The gallery of images, and a video of the project can be viewed after the break.

This parametric design created a unique cloud form that creates a landscape within the student center where monumental and ephemeral figures will pass through the space, blurring the distinction between past and present. More images and information after the break.Post-processing of extracted components automated the shop drawing process and streamlined the workflow for an expedited installation phase.
