Fluidity Formation


Material Computation Forms New Spatial Quality

Fluidity Formation


Material Computation Forms New Spatial Quality
For ages, architects, artists and sculptors used plaster, glass and other fluid materials to create forms, spaces by casting. My idea is to change the way of forming and to liberate fluid material. To open a new possibility for space formation by fluid material computation.

When we talk about the future of architecture, we need to start to rethink our way of architectural design. "What does form mean to architecture?" "What is the relationship between form and material?" Material creates form, and form is created by material casting. Then, I want to arise another question: What if we liberate material and let material creates form itself?

According to different melting points, wax will be melted and plaster stays in a certain temperature by heating. I find that there is possibility to involve the two materials together as fluidity formation research.Then the whole formation process is in three stages:
1, Create wax as mold.
2, Mix plaster with water and pour plaster on wax.
3, Heat, wax melted, plaster left.

This strategy gives new possibility to fluidity formation not only as a new form but also as a potential future architecture space.
