This installation presents a large model at the scale of 1:2. The model is made with modeling techniques and structural logics more commonly found at a smaller scale size, and as such the model’s form collapses and deforms.

The model connect two identical facades of the small and large buidlings of a villa currently under construction in the Yucatán. This new form is fit into the plan of Woodbury University’s Wedge Gallery. Under consideration are tape tectonics, a new architectural resistance, and a revisitation of paper architecture after the digital turn.
