SMART DESIGN STUDIO

Indigo Slam, 2018, 1:100

A model designed to recreate Smart Design’s iconic Indigo Slam for a traveling presentation for the Jam Factory’s exhibition on Concrete. The model of this private residence showed a side not accessible to the public. The elevation of the model allowed visitors a viewing point into the architecture, showcasing the effect of the light play coming from the iconic facade. The recognizable curvature and form of the design was captured accurately using flexible birch-wood. The use of this timber created a crisp uniformity to the model’s palette to reflect the simplicity of the material mastery of concrete that we can see in the built work today.
