STRUCTURAL EXUBERANCE WITH DETAILED ORNAMENTATION...

INSECTUS

This is an investigation into three fundamental paradigms in architecture: surface, structure, and volume through a specific lens of thickened figures Historically, ornament has been understood as flat or nearly flat ornaments adored to forms to create detail. In todays world with the rapid ability of 3D printing to blend the gap between ornament and form, patterns have become the structure that they once adorned, in that it is possible for it to possesses an amazing balance of structural exuberance with detailed ornamentation. By starting with an anatomical module, in this case, a mosquito, I was able to manipulate and apply these techniques to create a piece of armature.
