Short Description

a 3D concrete printed bench for a public space

Detailed Description

The project came as a result for my Master Thesis in Architectural design.The bench's design process begins with observation to human postures. Examining how the body inclination can change while people are seated in public spaces for a long time, how the body moves through the time. After creating a typology of basic body inclinations and combining all the lines, an interesting design aroused. This special organic form reminds us of the continuous flow and movement of the water; the creation of small wave's curves. That's how the project is named "fluid". Is made of a 3D concrete prinetd as a way to use as little material as possible .An organic shaped bench for public space, made by a 3D concrete printer.

Project Details

Does your design take social and cultural challenges and human wellbeing into consideration?

It is designed for the human body

Does your design support sustainable production, embodying circular or regenerative design practices?

Sustainable use of the material (concrete)

Does your design promote awareness of responsible design and consumption?

Throught the way of production, people can understand how and why we need to use this technology (3D concrete printers) so we can use only the material that we need. No need of more material, no waste material.
