Plain Dealer Reports on the Groundbreaking of the New Gund Building

"The reclaimed wood we used is so beautiful. I love the history of it, and the environmentally friendly, sustainable aspect."
ON CHOOSING CIA I originally started at another liberal arts school, majoring in studio art. But for a lot of reasons, I wasn’t happy there. CIA was a great choice because it has such a good Industrial Design program.
ON INDUSTRIAL DESIGN I love that the ID program is artistic with marketable job skills. I had a good handle on drawing from life, and ID helped me transition to drawing realistic concepts from my imagination. It’s a really intense program, a ton of work involved.
ON CLEVELAND I like to go over to Ohio City and spend time there. And I like going up the hill to Coventry, to all the restaurants and shops.
ON FACULTY The ID faculty try to work equally with all the different classes. I’ve worked with all of the ID faculty. Their connections with industry help with everything – contacts, internships, projects. Their experience out in the field helps a lot.
ON THE PROJECT CIA partnered with the local nonprofit salvaged woodworking firm A Piece of Cleveland (APOC) to design furniture concepts for use in our new, consolidated campus. Wendy and other ID juniors designed and built furniture prototypes using wood reclaimed from deconstructed Cleveland buildings.
I designed a piece for studio spaces. Because we were involved with APOC it was a longer process—cleaning up the reclaimed wood, planing it, laminating it, just getting it ready to use took at least a week of hardcore work. My desk is based on old Shaker-style writing desks. It combines storage with a working surface, and it folds up so you can hide your mess!
OTHER ID STUDENTS INVOLVED IN APOC PROJECT Gabriel Puerto, Mathew Gurda, Sara Shipley, Phillip Jividen, TJ Huddleston, David Meyers, Jesse Hill, Jonathan Janke, Li Wei Su, Anthony Spadaro, Andrew Brase
