Hybrid Formation


This prototype draws inspiration from the rich curves and spline of automotive design. While expressive, the body panel of a super car also follows the stright requirement for aerodynamic and structural regidity. Similar to the fabrication of an airplane, the techniques of the aviation and automobile industry is applied to the fabrication of these prototypes. Manufactured out of extremely lightweight, aluminum panels, the installations will consist of unique and custom CNC cut components. These individual components assemble like a large 3-dimensional puzzle, forming an elegant, soft and dynamic volume.  This is a group project completed with Timo Tsui.
