Digital Grotesque I - Printing Architecture       

Digital Grotesque is the first fully immersive, solid, human-scale, enclosed structure that is entirely 3D printed out of sand. This structure, measuring 16 square meters, is materialized with details at the threshold of human perception. Every aspect of this architecture is composed by custom-designed algorithms.

The combination of additive manufacturing and computational design produces a new, non-standardized, highly differentiated and spatially complex architecture. An architecture emerges between chaos and order, both natural and artificial, yet neither foreign nor familiar: a Digital Grotesque.
