Elastika is a site-specific installation, which aims to mutate the historical Moore building built in 1921. The existing building has two major implied architectural moves: horizontal circulation on layered mezzanines and four story vertical columns that stretch upwards to embrace the central atrium. Pushing the envelope of current spatial concepts, we have instilled a dynamic tension within this existing Cartesian layout. Oblique ‘stretches’ span the space like chewing gum, establishing an elastic/plastic connection between different floors, creating new understanding in complex geometry and fluid architectural order. The design and manufacture of the installation has only been made possible through the latest advances in technology. Its form was generated on complex geometry software (using nurb surface modeller). This design wasthen sculpted by CNC (Computer Numerical Control) milling to enable manufacture.

Su Instalación Elastika de la arquitecta Zaha Hadid, es increíble. Una demostración de lo que la tecnología puede hacer por la arquitectura.
