suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
4of7 Architecture & University of Belgrade: This is by far the largest prototypical model built in the Inconsistencies series. It was built at Kula Nebojsa in Belgrade, in June this year, as a result of the workshop conceived as an integral part of the Design Studio curriculum 1112M5 for 16 students at University of Belgrade. There are several key aspects to this exercise.
The model was built in the open air space, to interact with weather conditions over the period of few weeks. Elastic material behavior was of essential importance to construction process and structural stability. A custom made plug-in was developed for Rhino to allow for geometric modeling with material constraints. Construction of the model is carried out as a collective effort, according to the design protocol structured as a set of simple rules based on easy to do techniques, albeit the baking sun and five meter distance to the concrete floor.

The workshop was realised in partnership with Serbian Wind Energy Association (SEWEA). The outcome was presented on the on June 15th to coincide with the Global Wind Day which is a worldwide event that occurs annually to celebrate and promote wind energy potentials.
