Washing Machine. How may architecture benefit from our impending architectural feedback loop? The cycle of architecture is undeniable in our modernist tenure. Since the torch has been passed and modernism has taken shape the articulation of style, form and repetition comes at wild fire pace. We are stuck in a feedback loop of inferior copies from ripped off Corb and pastiche Mies - the once vanguard has become the new normal. Our schools insist on pursuing something once invigorating. Schumacher, also seeking a totalising moment, an architecture we're all engaged with, an architecture we're all part of. Sadly this vision ensues an architecture of singular inflections of fantasia and mass production replication - unfortunately done so quickly the essence of the work is long but forgotten. Though, we may not need to be agitated by the repetitive notion we've found ourselves in, during the modernist reign. For taking ownership of this feedback loop will allow us to step aside from it as well as exploiting moments of excitement. Step aside from poor copies and move towards an enigmatic Architecture.
¿Tienes que entregar una maqueta pero también quieres tener otra para ti ? Con la impresión 3d, imprimir tantas maquetas iguales como quieras, es posible 😀😀
Do you have to deliver a model but you also want to have another one for you? With 3d printing, print as many mock-ups as you want, it's possible 😀😀 Material : fiber of carbon 👍www.a3dp.es

discrete metal inlays were inserted into the carved digital linear patterns on the frame.
