    3-D Printing and other forms of Rapid Prototyping are moving into the realm of actual manufacturing. The ability to produce usable objects on a customized basis may well disrupt industry in the 21st Century as much as the steam engine did in the 18th. Prof. Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa, Director of Cooper Union’s Certificate program in Digital Representation and Fabrication, will discuss the scope of these technologies in the Rose auditorium at 5 pm on February 1. The lecture is free and open to all.

    waddinxveen THE NETHERLANDS

    “Lotus Dome,” interactive artwork by artist and architect Daan Roosegaarde, is a living dome made out of hundreds of ultralight aluminum flowers that fold open in response to human behavior.

    When approached, the big silver dome lights up and opens its flowers. Its behavior moves from soft breathing to dynamic mood when more people interact. The light slowly follows people, creating an interactive play of light and shadow. The graphic representations of the lotus flower on the walls, and the deep bass sound, transforms the Renaissance environment into a “Techno-Church.”

    Why still speak of the real and the virtual, the material and immaterial? Here these categories are not in opposition, or in some metaphysical disagreement, but more in an electro-liquid aggregation, enforcing each other, as in a two-part adhesive. — Lars Spuybroek, “Motor Geometry”

    In a fascinating presentation, Russell Lowe will show work from a range of projects that use computer gaming technology to support, extend and challenge architectural design.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Andreea MANDRESCU (Studio Andreea Mandrescu Ltd.): Inlaid Fantasies is based on the research of marquetry and inlay crafts, the material and the aesthetic traditionally used. The aim was to create a new tactile and visual experience that will bring a new perspective on the traditional crafts by implementing them into textile design. The outcome was/is a series of fluid, soft surfaces inlaid and overlaid on fabrics that can be used in fashion, accessories as well as interiors. The predominant combination of materials is fabrics, different kinds of rubber, faux fur, veneers and leather.
