    Nice effect with the laser cut fabric. The first and last pictures make it look like a permanent building.

    wow.this is amazing!

  • vortekxt

    amazing?

  • ayush

    I like the simplicity of the idea..

    another example of when exciting theoretical/mathematical/scientific study falls short in built form.

    I notice this always happens. When everyone agrees that this is a great work, there will be one or two jokers out there that will despise everything that is good.

    So the emphasis was only on the façade???

  • bald skull

    this doesn’t look anything like their original concept… just saying…

    fanatic,

    it doesn’t seem that everyone agrees this is such a stellar work..
    i do actually appreciate good work though, but hey, they built it and i didn’t so good for them.

    It reminds me of the cloth they use to camoflauge temporary structures in the military. Same lazer-cut idea to effect foliage. Except this one is made to draw attention to the object rather than disguise it.

    I think it is really cool… Simple, atractive, different, low cost…
