Urban Toys

This projects further develops the techniques from the Twisted Concrete project.  Here are furniture scale pieces that experiment with several manipulations of the basic fabric formwork concept for concrete shells.  The possibilities of this technique are endless and we tested many variations: internal and external applications, added lighting, wheels, various connection methods, varying levels of transparency and color, cast in objects and materials, changes in scale etc.
