Concrete Vessel 

Partly inspired by Brutalist Architecture, this concrete vessel that serves as an architectural sculpture exploresvolumetric qualities and complex compositions. The geometries reference a precision, at the same time the raw processes. Rooted in iterative processes, this project does not seek perfection, but it is an exploration of pushing the boundary of materiality. With a puzzle-solving method, each typology of positive and negative relationship of the formwork within the cube was a cycle of constant iterations. These carvings aim to create multiple voids within a solid form, to evoke ideas such as utopian inhabitations. Intentionally leaving the surface rough and imperfect was part of the desire to deploy the man-made craft. This final 3 feet by 3 feet cube  concrete vessel now sits across Crown Hall and is left to question the ephemerality of this vessel.
