Can construction enhance the sensuality of digitally-designed architecture rather than compromise it? A kaleidoscopic installation built from 1400 uniquely cut, flat plywood panels, Technicolor Bloom was first installed at Sliver Gallery, Vienna and shown at the Museum of Applied Arts, Vienna and the Beijing Biennale in 2008.
Technicolor Bloom uses completely standard, scaleable fabrication technology to produce doubly curved, digitally designed architectural form. It proposes a method and a set of aesthetic principles that extend the potential of topological surfaces by incorporating traditional architectural parameters (structure, aperture, material) directly into the project's geometry. The result is a spatial study of the literal and phenomenal effects of 3-dimensional pattern.
