Pavlova Studio looks at generative algorithms and rulesets that form unexpected results.
Students are encouraged to take risk and to delay their latent desire to control outcomes through, but to explore
possibilities.
They must manage top-down strategic decision making processes as a curatorial methodology in combination with tactical responses to adjusting
components and the rulesets that order their compositions.

In this framework, the intent is to seek new relational frameworks for interventions aid in the critique of the context of the site,
which was the whitebox-gallery of the Lyons House museum.

Projects were also critiqued through lenses outside of the generative outputs, such as effects induced by introducing
performative, relational qualities and fictional filters
in the attempt to not make these not additive layers, but setting up a relational framework for design that
enhances a critical response to context and human behaviour.

This is an integral ecology of design process.

Students do the project in an intense 5 week cycle.
Students undertaking the project in their 3rd cycle also look at tectonics and material behaviour associated with executing their projects
at 1:1 scale using methods such as folding, casting & draping.
