Mardi Gras Indians: Cultural & Community Engagement

After given the task of analyzing and diagramming the mask of the 2014 Fi-Yi-Yi Big Chief Mardi Gras Indian suit, tectonic assembly models were made to help translate the drawn interpretations. The diagrams and tectonic models later informed architecture in the form of a threshold pavilion for the Mardi Gras Indians that exhibit parts of suits, create a space for exterior parading, and store materials to repair suits.
