Thinner than a credit card. Yet you can stand on the structure.
Under Magnitude, the most recent permanent structure from Marc Fornes / THEVERYMANY, evolves the studio’s invention of a topological-walking stripe-based material system, i.e. ‘structural stripes.’
Strips of curved perforated aluminum are riveted together to create this two-story installation of tubular branches.
In the design Marc Fornes refers to Frei Otto’s soap bubble model. He advances the form with tighter curvature and constant directional change.
Under Magnitude is suspended from the atrium of the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
Marc Fornes is the founder of THEVERYMANY, a design studio and collaborative research forum engaging the field of architecture via encoded and explicit processes. A Rhino and RhinoScript expert, Marc collaborates with McNeel on a regular basis.
