Iridescence Print, 2015
Palais de Tokyo, Paris
Iridescence Print is the first large-scale architectural installation to be automatically printed by robotic machines. Conceived as a spatially complex lightweight structure, the installation synthesizes a rigorous exploration of the architectural potentials of robotic extrusion of spatial meshes at full architectural scale. The multi-coloured installation was developed during the elective thesis “Extruded Structures” and is exclusively presented at the exhibition „L’usage des formes – Artisans d’art et artistes“ at the Palais de Tokyo, kindly supported by the Fondation Bettencourt Schueller.
