Project
Fluid

Traditional casting systems rely on the rigidity of a static cast to shape the material and the project questions this paradigm. It considers casting as a dynamic process of formation as a means of imagining a construction method that could produce instant structures by using fast setting processes. Based on the study of material behaviour within the logic of digital fabrication, our project explores a technology to set phase-changing materials by using water as their catalyst. Fluid aims to constitute the development of a digitally-controlled, efficient construction system that allows instant structures to be formed in water and uses the sea as the site of deployment, opening a wide range of possible applications.
