The digital fabricated structural brick
is an example of creating an object
by using the structural skin as a mold.
The form follows the stress lines, which
shape geometry of the brick.
Laser cutting gave us an opportunity
to experiment with the folding technique.
By using this method they developed the
structural skin, which was a base
for the mold. The casting process started
from creating the negative,
which became the reusable mold.
The six bricks prototypes and the mold,
which is ready for reuse, are the final
of the digital fabrication experiment.
