Edibility and architectural models
There are rarely straight lines in nature. In architecture on the other hand, straight lines are the most important elements. How can we adapt our thinking to the uncertainty and seemingly chaotic complexity of nature in a time when ecological thinking has become so important? These prototypes were made to test how food could introduce uncertainty into architectural model-making. Creating frameworks from pasta and raw dough, the baked objects transformed through the rising dough. The collaborative workshop was performed with a group of international designers, students and architects in Ichikawa, Japan.
