 CLOUD CAPSULE – STARING AT THE SUN

DETAILS

Cloud Capsule features a series of site-specific parametric models that have been developed by Architect Arthur Mamou-Mani with lead collaborator Andrei Jipa. Described as ‘skyscrapers-for-one’, these 2 metre high micro-pavilions demonstrate measured changes in the levels of light diffused through their forms. These models are calculated using the daylight simulation software Radiance and “Silkworm”; an open-source plug-in for Rhino developed by a team including Mamou-Mani. Visitors will have the chance to observe the 3D printer on-site and follow the creation of one of these micro-pavilions throughout the duration of the exhibition.

This is our second project made using our Delta Tower 3D Printer. See the 3D Printed Pop-Up Studio in Shanghai.
