Ichneumonid – Herwig Scherabon


Everybody wants to re-use space, instead of completely starting from scratch to redesign the urban fabrics in which shape our cities today.  However there is practical way of looking at this issue, and then there is the totally radical way.  Herwig Scherabon certainly went off the deep end in this out there approach to growing buildings from the inside out.  The imaginative design approach and language from the drawings to his study models, captures his imaginative initiative and approach to architecture.  The project dips into biomimicry, fantasy, and really pushes how we can redevelop and look at architecture as a built form.  Check it out after the jump!
