Woman’s Realm (Crocheted Commercial Building with Fringe, Liverpool)

The project explodes into an effusion of experiments in the next-to impossible: the fractal extrapolation of a clock face; the construction and drawing of a bipolar distortion machine; developing a code for crochet; crocheting structure; structuring crochet; laser-patterning an I-beam; crocheting the Farnsworth House.

In Semester 2, the circular twist of the masterplan stretches and splits two once-normal blocks, which are drawn, smoothed, elaborated and exfoliated into suprising extravagances; notably the steel forms which weave their way through the buildings; the hanging fringe external portal and the deep, elaborate brises-soliel walls which operate in two directions, giving the building even further expression and animation.
