A Chair for JFK
Structural Chair Design and Analysis
University Of Waterloo
Lessons in partnership, assistance, and mutual reliance
Team Members: Miguel Sanchez, Dennis Tang
As something of a former tradition at the University Of Waterloo School Of Architecture, each pair of students must design, analyse, and build their own chair. Based on an affinity for the former President of the United States, we decided to create a chair celebrating the strength of a man whilst simultaneously highlighting his health-related shortcomings. As our brainstorming continued, the incorporation of his wife became apparent in the design. Soon, the design of one chair became two, and the relationship of strength and cooperation became a central theme in the design.
