LO3 – Alexander Chen

Digital Grotesque is the name of two separate installations that are pieces of architectural works that resemble the works of Spanish architect Antonion Gaudi. These rooms are 3D printed and were entirely made from algorithms. I admire this project because it takes something that is seemingly very mathematical and calculated like algorithms and make it into something very beautiful and artistic. Replicating architectural styles of the past that well is something already commendable, but it also implies further scientific creations. For example, this kind of structure probably would have taken forever to make in the time that this type of architecture was the norm. However, this took only one month to print which while is a long time to print, it is nothing compared to the years of the original.
