Constrained by requirements for precision, conventional architectural models seldom capture the full spectrum of desires and mental archaeologies involved in place-making. In search of a wider range of expression a new method of casting rubber was developed, pairing contemporary 3D printing techniques with freehand modelling. Subverting the rigour of architectural planning, new forms emerge through a combination of design, chance and fast, intuitive shaping.
