suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
brennan BUCK: technicolor bloom is a full-scale prototype that produces doubly curved, digitally-designed form using completely standard, scalable fabrication technology. it proposes a method and a set of aesthetic principles that extend the architectural potential of topological form by incorporating architectural systems such as structure, aperture, fenestration and construction directly into the project’s geometry.
built from 1400 uniquely cut, flat plywood panels, the installation favors intense detail over seamless elegance. at the same time, it proliferates continuity: continuity of surface morphology, continuity of the structural patterns across those surfaces, and varied interrelationships of depth and color from one surface to the next. the result is a kaleidoscopic study of the literal and phenomenal effects of 3-dimensional pattern.
