VG STUDIO - The Hand Rail / Book Case

Victoria Goldstein is a licensed architect in Buenos Aires and an AIA Associate. Check out her project ‘The Hand Rail / Book Case’. It was generated using Rhino and Grasshopper, later translated to CAD CAM for routing in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The form begins with a simple elongated prism that ‘blobs’ out near arms reach while climbing the stairs or walking past them, and then bulges back in where the user can’t reach to grab a book. Such association between the living and the inert generates a decorative yet functional play.

VG Studio is a Houston/Buenos Aires based design firm that creates work within architecture, art, and digital fabrication technology for private and public projects. They are a young and dynamic practice with a highly experimental approach engaged in collaborations with many engineering and design firms.
