Material Knowledge

BY NICK BRUSCIA
@ VOL 115 ON JUN 25, 2014

After discovering leftover material from Kikutake's 1970 Osaka Expo tower, architectural researcher Nick Bruscia and his students began experimenting with textured stainless steel sheets to create a system of woven face frames. Its reflection of sunlight and resistance to winde make the installation's specular quality and the structural integrity one in the same. Nick comments that he is trying to create knowledge about materials, rather than implement knowledge.
