An exploration of the Post-Modernist concept of the architecture of ‘folding’, that is, origami- like surface folding to compose three-dimensional objects.
A constant-width white strip, similar to the Mobius strip is employed to create a dynamic shape by varying directions and positions.
The strip wraps around a minimalist glass mass. The aim was to contrast the rigor and playfulness of Euclidean geometry, as a metaphor for breaking free from the strict building codes and regulations governing this development.
