Zip Tie Massimal

July 25th, 2011

Design Office Takebayashi Scroggin made this massimal with 20,000 zip ties. A massimal?

Massimals are 1:1 design objects that serve as prototypes to examine how physical form can engage the public realm. These constructs are mass abstractions of animal forms fabricated in systematic fashion from one material. The suggestive forms and their specific arrangement imply docile behavior similar to animals in a petting zoo augmenting the way visitors approach and engage built form.

Okay, but this is still a very impressive project.
