Power of the Cube

Power of the CubeThe project presented was a group cooperative development in which I was part of. Our aim was to make rigorous use of material experimentation, supported by digital design and fabrication, in order to design mobile galleries for an outdoor accessible expositions at Chalmers University’s Johanneberg campus, Gothenburg, Sweden.
The task should be achieved trough the process of an open cast for which we need to create a base design. Ideally a connection between material casted and form should be explored to the extend of understanding, manipulation regulating, and guiding their characteristics and separate identities, resulting in one homogenous final piece.

Among the vast variety of forms in architecture, simple geometric shapes have always occupied a special place due to the unique combination of features such as simplicity, rationality, and creativity. Cube is one of such simple yet very rich and bright architectural shapes. We have worked on the idea to make rigorous use of material experimentation, supported by digital design and fabrication, in order to reach the goals and achieve the design implementing only the allowed materials-soap, wax, color, paint.

materials used: wax, oil based color, color powder, soap
