paperbox
House made of recycled corrugated card board (fruit boxes) as self-supportive light weight construction. The 3,6 m high tower forms an upside down cone without ceiling.
The card board boxes were layed on top of each other, row after row, in a radial running bond pattern and fixated among each other with screws. This offset creates the cantilever of the structure.
Outer diameter at ground level is 2,4 m, 480 commercially available fruit boxes have been used. 

Realised in cooperation with and pre-running workshop at the TU Darmstadt, Fachgebiet Plastisches Gestalten, Prof. Ariel Auslender
Constructed on the 2016 Kunstbiennale Kunsteiland, Hermitage, Rotterdam, Netherlands
