06/26/24 DORIS SUNG AWARDED FELLOWSHIP WITH THE BOGLIASCO FOUNDATION

 

Doris Sung has been named a fellow by the Bogliasco Foundation, an American non-profit organization that awards one-month fellowships to individuals of all ages and nationalities who are developing significant new work in the arts and humanities. She will be in residence January 7 to February 6, 2025 in Bogliasco, Italy. 

 

Sung’s proposed project includes describing the dynamic nature in which smart materials move in words or in still images but do not capture the magical quality that comes from witnessing them activate in real time. For this purpose, the residency will produce a series of pop-up pages that display the true capacity of thermobimetal, a sheet material that curls when heated. The work will eventually be inserted as part of a larger book project. Additional time will be spent on refining the text and graphics of the book publication. The pop-up pages will be arranged in a sunny interior location to freely react to the moving sun at the Bogliasco Foundation. 

 

Doris Sung is the Director of Undergraduate Architecture Programs and Associate Professor at the USC School of Architecture. Juggling between research and teaching, Sung publishes, lectures, and exhibits internationally while managing to bring her patented inventions to the market. With the belief that buildings can be more sensitive to the changing environment like human skin, she seeks ways to make the building skin dynamic and responsive. Sung has received numerous accolades for her outstanding work, including being named in TIMES MAGAZINE Best Inventions of 2022 for her design of InVert Self-Shading Windows.
