_Message for all students of +model workshop.

We are preparing the book of the projects of the workshop taken place in May.

They still miss the projects of some groups, others have to furnish us some inherent material to the personal project.
We will send a mail to every group to ask for the specific material.
For the one that had not made it yet, prepare the translation of his own relationship in English.

For any problem contacted us by mail.

Thanks for the collaboration.

FRONT furniture.

Is it possible to let the first sketch become the object, to design directly in space?

The four members of FRONT make it possible to materialise hand made sketches through using a unique method where they combine two highly developed techniques.
Invisible pen strokes in the air recorded with Motion Capture become digital 3D-files. Through Rapid Prototyping, the files are materialised into real pieces of furniture.

_more material with high resolution.

In Los angeles, next to the church of Rafael Moneo, we had seen a real estate advertising with a particular render, it was not the usual architecture. In fact it was a project of the study Coop Himmelb(l)au, the Central Los Angeles Area High School #9.
