DESIGN NAME:
Arachne - A 3D Printed Building Facade

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Building Facade

INSPIRATION:
Arachne is a digital architectural endeavor to redefine an ordinary building with 3D printed components. To reflect its literal title, Arachne is designed and installed by the spatially intertwined lattices that hung on the building in the curtain wall mechanism. After the last component was in place, it was an expressive moment that the physical installation was situated in the way so identical to the digital model and renderings, it is only made possible by the new design and fabrication.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The mass gift-wrapped by Arachne is a three-floor building of 10 meters in height and 12 meters in width. This assignment was contracted to cover the main façades, which face an important public square, with a strong iconic articulation to collect attention. 3D printing technology was selected to meet this requirement owning to its fabulous capacity of adopting the design concept.
