DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Project EGG

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Small Pavilion

INSPIRATION:
Michiel van der Kley has been muddling around and wondering with 3D printers and the fascinating possibilities of the new software we have under our hands. It made him want to do something new, really new. Inspired by Nature, and the fascinating possibilities of the software and people inspired to come up with this idea. We are now able to produce something like this in this unique way. After all, all of us together form some new kind of factory.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Project EGG is the largest community 3D printed object to date. Hundreds of people form all around the world 3D printed a stone, together forming this unique pavilion. Every 'stone' is unique and different. in return everyone that collaborated in this way got their name in the stone. An object like EGG would have never been made 'the old way'. The building itself is constructed with 4760 stones that are all different. Not one is the same as the other.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
It is a small pavilion with as only purpose to give spectators a warm feeling when seeing it from outside and standing inside. That happens almost every time.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project was first exhibited in Eindhoven during Design Week in 2014. Since then it has been exhibited in Utrecht, Delft in the Netherlands, in Design Museum in Kerkrade in Dusseldorf (D) and at Fundacion Telefonica in Madrid (ESP)

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
the 3D model was built in Rhino and especially Grasshopper. Grasshopper is a program that lets you build things that you could not build before. Egg is 3D printed in PLA, mounted together with small screws

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
5000mm x 3000mm x 2600mm

TAGS:
3D printed, Pavilion, community printed, Egg, world largest, Art piece

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I tried to come up with a new shape language, belonging to this new technique that 3d printing is. In the end I designed a pavilion with 4760 unique and different 'stones', because that is clearly something belonging to 3d printed, producing unique objects, and I looked for participants resulting in a lot of stones that were printed by people from all around the world. Again something you could almost only do with 3D printing.

CHALLENGE:
the challenge was to come up with something you'd never seen before. So, I started all over with almost no insight. After having defined a shape for the stone that was firm and printable, I designed a pavilion to build with it. Opposite to regular buildings where you can build a lot of things with the regular brick, this pavilion could only be built with the exact amount of unique stones
