Aluminium Casted Facade Elements
Heavily armoured is a proposal for custom aluminium facade elements casted in 3d printed sand moulds. The design was developed through the creation of a set of subdivision rules to be applied to different areas of the facade, generating an algorithmic ornamental structure. Through 3D Printing, sand-molds can be fabricated for metal parts with complex inner and outer features and with highly detailed surface. Customization and complexity comes at no extra cost and opens the door for revival of cast metal in architecture.
