sci-arc: blobwall pavilion is a collaboration between greg lynn form, machineous who developed the manufacturing method for the “bricks” and panelite who produced and distributed the architectural material. it is an innovative redefinition of the brick – architecture’s most basic building unit – into a lightweight object made of colorful plastic and reinterpreted into modular elements. the blob unit, or “brick,” is a robotically cut mass-produced hollow tri-lobed shape formed through rotational molding, which is then assembled with interlocking precision to form the wall. the blobwall pavilion is a contemporary wall system that recovers the voluptuous shapes, chiaroscuro and grotto-like textures of baroque and renaissance architecture in pixilated gradients of vivid color. on three walls of the installation, custom fabricated acrylic bubble cabinets will be installed to display small objects.
