Tangential Dreams (with Format Engineers) is an architectural installation for the Burning Man festival 2016 and a statement for a new kind of Architecture in which the Architect is also the Maker. It is a 30 feet high twisting tower with thin wooden tangent swaying in the wind with inspiring sentences written by people around the world. Tangential Dreams received partial funding from the Burning Man Arts Grant.
We use algorithms to maximize inexpensive materials such as timber or bio-plastic. Throughout the process we link our digital models (Rhinoceros3D, Grasshopper3D) with fabrication tools such as LaserCut and 3D Printers to improve the design and make the project possible. The technique behind our designs are open-source, and can be realized and improved in most makerspaces around the world. We believe that everyone is creative and would like to inspire and empower everyone to create.
We would like Tangential Dreams to be the beacon of an approach that is often seen as out of reach or too difficult. We want this project to inspire the young generation to reach their dreams. Nothing is impossible. Be part of our dream.
