Truth be told, there is a lot of sand in Saudia Arabia. Recently, two architects wanted to create the kingdom’s sustainable party of design. They looked around and unavoidably turned to one of Saudia Arabia’s most plentiful fresh materials.
The outcome did not disappoint architects Arthur Mamou-Mani and Chris Precht. The result is sandwaves, a full-scale strip-like formation that may be utilized as street fittings.
Mixing sand and volatile resin, these architects utilized additive manufacturing to make 58 elements. The elements were connected to make a constant waving design. The bent design hints the feeling of alleyways as the perforated portions adopt from palm trees.
The eponymous office of Mamou-Mani office in London is popular for its usage of digital devices. This is in fabricated construction plans, and it has made related designs previous. Precht co-established his workroom in Austria, creating modular homes and structures that offer solutions for environmental needs like urban farming.
All the architecture facilities operated with UK-engineering company Format. This is to decide the most suitable thickness and shape of every component. The aim is to build a long-lasting and working pavilion. Every part scales about 160 kilograms.
Speaking during an interview, Mamou-Mani said the following: “We both believe in the cradle-to-cradle approach to design, using materials that can go back to their natural state, leaving no trace.”
The architects together with their companies stressed the usage of local materials in building. Furthermore, additive manufacturing is popular for its affordable technology that is being increasingly utilized on creating structures.
“Building in an ecological way also means to build with local materials,” said Precht
In conclusion, Mamou-Mani said that it is a great satisfaction to serve with a crew that trusts that technology. He said that the crew believes the technology can assist the world and the team is new potentials regardless of the obstacles.
