Students at the Bartlett craft woven steel assemblies with Fologram

This project from the Bartlett University in London prototypes intricate woven steel structures using holographic guides for assembly in Fologram. The project was part of the BPro Research Cluster 9 led by Soomeen Hahm & Alvaro Lopez Rodriguez in 2018/19. This project was completed by students Teng Wang, Minzhe Song, Danping Meng, Rouxi Lyu, Siwei Qin.

The project aims to craft a metal structure in a way that achieves contemporary aesthetics coupled with the richness and exuberance found in traditional ironwork. The project uses Fologram to assemble a series of scaffolding props that hold the ironwork in place, and then uses holographic guides to accurately assemble the complex aggregation of steel.
