Printed Collumn

This research, using 3D printing, created complex forms in terracotta without the need for moulds. The initial idea was to develop a pavilion, but due to the size of the 3D printer and the restricted time scale, a column design was developed as a proof of concept. Contributed to this collaborative experiment with input to the 3D printing files design; including form finding scripts, based on catenary curves and surfaces, in order to design a form which would support itself under compression. Also ran the 3D printer on multiple occasions.
