Art Omi: Architecture celebrates the opening of InConstruction: Cristina Parreño. The event is free and open to the public, and will feature remarks from the exhibiting architect and Art Omi: Architecture Director.
InConstruction: Cristina Parreño presents TransTectonics in Construction, a set of four provocations that challenge conventional processes of material assemblies pushing towards innovation in design research. The prototypes PlyGlass, Ghost of Stone, Rock in Full Metal Jacket, and Wooden Bubbles behave as tools for experimentation through intentional mismatches, calculated discrepancies and improbable pairings of materials and tectonics.
