suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
richard BECKETT, sarat BABU, & aleksa RIZOVA: Constructed from less than 1kilogram of plastic, Fragile explores the delicate and the impossible. The project is inspired by the convergence between nature and technology which challenges the aesthetics and constructive methods of human structures and objects. Fragile is the result, a combination of biological minimalism inspired by natures structural efficiency and the fabrication of the impossible through the use of new Additive Layer Manufacturing processes which produce pieces of incredible complexity and detail that would be virtually impossible otherwise.
Constructed at DMC London, The Bartlett School of Architecture.
