Based on the beauty of this traditional art, these digital spaces were created by Sydney's University of Technology. The students were asked to study parametric modeling and digital fabrication,the outcome still traditional but with a modern aesthetic twist.
I like the idea of regeneration without neglecting any core values, allowing ancient art to transcend into the twentieth century and adapt into modern culture.
The structure is made up from 3500 recycled cardboard molecules, each element creating tunnels and arches. Each piece is illuminated with neon light to exentuate their angular formation.
The aim of the project is cited from creators:
'to test the fitness of a particular molecule, copied from nature, to generate architectural space, with the assumption that the intelligence of the smallest unit dictates the intelligence of the overall system'.
