MASTER DESIGN STUDIO TU Delft AND TRAVELLING EXHIBITION, 2011-2012
The Why Factory with MVRDV, KRADS and LEGO

‘Porous City’ presents two sets of experiments exploring different aspects of porosity performed by a group of 18 students. Built with approximately one million white LEGO bricks – 676 towers on scale 1:1000 and 16 towers on scale 1:100 investigate development of possible new relationships between mass and void in large-scale architecture. The results of the Porous City have so far been presented at TU Delft, 13th Venice Architecture Biennale, BODW Hong Kong 2012, MIPM Cannes 2013 and Mooi Amsterdam.
