suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
PUCP FabLab: The intersection between hi-tech and low-tech is what thrives the studio, The city of Lima being in a similar condition makes the students question the very basics of technology. The recycled bottles arrayed along a titled cone define the geometry of the installation. The CNC Xs are bound together by the cap of the plastic bottles, where the bottle provides the hardest area. Each bottle behaves as a bolt and the caps as the nuts, since the bottles and caps are standardized, it doesn’t matter what brand it is used, they all have the same cap. Recycling and technology works together to generate a more sustainable way of building.
