Wave/Cave imagined a possible future for one of architecture’s oldest material technologies.
Working closely with our partners at NBK, we designed a block form that balances structural integrity and expressive possibility. Design and manufacturing were fully integrated, with digital instruction sets for the profile cuts auto-generated and exported directly to the production team. A concealed system of stainless steel plates was used to assemble the blocks in their final form. It was developed and installed by Metalsigma Tunesi, and engineered by Arup.
