COUNTER + Intuitive by CO + Lab

Abstract:

This material experimentation project was carried out by CO+Lab: a construction+collaboration laboratory who sought to make small construction interventions to improve underutilized spaces around the Meyerson Hall, home of PennDesign at the University of Pennsylvania. Counter+Intuitive is a formally whimsical bar + ledge + work surface in the main entrance to the building.
