The Labyrinth @boulderhallebasel is an algorithm based artificial cave / maze with maximized use of the space given: The 5 x 5 x 2.5 meter volume offers approximately 50 meters of tunnels of various sizes. Only a small number of surfaces are horizontal, which results in a unique spatial experience and challenges proprioceptive senses.
Built towards SN EN 1176, the European norm for playgrounds, our Labyrinth is safe for users of all ages.
The idea is based on concept designs which @mrtn.ch and @patrickandrey65 developed years ago at Blocx Asia in Malaysia. The struggles 10 years ago ultimately led to my fascination for computational design.
Developed in Rhino / Grasshopper and exported to Woodwop with our very own Grasshopper script, our workflow minimized the manual effort in programming and guaranteed flawless fabrication on a Homag 5-axis CNC machine…
