AIR-CHITECTURE TOWER – Intelligent Pencil

tumblr_md4d5jBMNm1rxkpsn

We only know this student by pen name, Intelligent Pencil, but once you look at his work you will understand why, and you won’t be able to look away.  We get a glimpse into the different exploration and research needed that builds to these works.  The project builds from a quick study of power lines creating structure, the Birk+Heilmeyer 2010 Observation Tower in Scholzberg, Czech Republic, and an inverse hyperboloid study.  The geometric forms layered create an intensified field condition leaving a rich architectural statement.  Check it out after the jump!
