24 chimneys of 3 different types for a mixed-use project in Shenzhen, China
The ongoing project investigates formwork prototypes made of hard and soft materials in search of more responsiveness with the liquid concrete. The design research is conducted in a precast factory in Dong Guan, China. Strategies of mass-customization at the chain of industrial production are concurrently tested.
