expresses the complexity of surfaces and volumes using a six-axes machining
sculpture in scale 1:10 represents the conceptual model of the sculpture
developed in collaboration with SCM Group, using complex milling algorithms
where the design meets digital fabrication to replace completely hand crafting

especially with a design that reflects the research and projects currently underway
in the Digital Architecture and Robotic Lab at London South Bank University.
project was developed using advanced milling techniques with the aim of
producing different geometry conditions. The result is Woodstream, a sinuous
fluid sculpture where you can read the toolpath from the digital manufacturing
is product of a lot of hard work and a lot of experimenting. Now that it’s
complete it’s a privilege to be given the opportunity to share this work and
