Last Monday the Open Thesis Fabrication 2016/17 students presented the findings from the research they have been developing for the past month of September. The Open Thesis Fabrication Program 2016/17 aims at producing a performative pavilion to be exhibited in Barcelona by march 2017.
IAAC Alumni Ilaria la Manna’s Bombix Bricks project looks at silk as a valid construction and structural material to be used within architecture. The overall goal is to create a growing space, acting as a temporary installation. Through time, the morphology of the fabric would be reduced back again to to its initial liquid state, allowing one to restart a different development in their desired location.
