Digital Origami uses 3500 recycled and recyclable cardboard molecules in two different shapes. LAVA studio explored the intelligence of natural and architectural systems through the smallest elements of design. Ecosystems such as reefs act as a metaphor for an architecture where the individual components interact in symbiosis to create an environment.
In urban terms, the smallest homes, the spaces they create, the energy they use, the heat and moisture they absorb, multiply into a bigger organisational system, whose sustainability depends on their intelligence. By itself this recognition is an ESD principle that in this instant simplifies the message and visualises it by creating
highly dimensional and sculptural appearance that plays with space by climbing up walls and arching over to create low, cave-like tunnels.
The seed for the projects is in essence an educative and thought provoking experiment, that aims to educate the valuable concept of intelligent, system based designs.
Using limited local sponsoring the collaborating students could archive a two week long exhibition that incorporated Computer controlled luminaries with sophisticated Light Systems and acoustic installations by local designer that brought the whole installation to life.
