Experiments on porosity can be seen at the Faculty of Architecture in Delft from the 16th of May until the 5th June 2012.
‘Opening the Tower’ presents two sets of experiments exploring different aspects of porosity on two significantly different scales. Built with approximately 1000000 white LEGO bricks – 676 towers on scale 1:1000 and 16 towers on scale 1:100 investigate development of possible new relationships between mass and void in large-scale architecture. The material presented at the exhibition is a result of design studio led by The Why Factory through fall semester 2011/12. The studio was developed and supervised by Prof. Winy Maas, Alexander Sverdlov and Ania Molenda in collaboration with KRADS and support from LEGO and Arup.
Participants of the Eurohigh design studio:
Jaap de Jong, Marina Ferrando, Alise Jekabsone, Jayson Johnstone, Valerie Krautzer, Qian LAN, Bill Lee, Albert Mark, Ana Melgarejo, Vincent Paar, Marcus Parviainen, Alex Parvu, Pedro Pitarch, Mihaela Radescu, Marie-lahya Simon, Leo Stuckardt, Calvin Tanikaya and Cyrus Wong.
