Elytra Installation at the V&A


thumb_DSC_0067_1024

Something looks different in The John Madejski Garden of the Victoria & Albert Museum. A new Installation in form of a Elytra Filament Pavilion has transformed the garden into a whole new place. Architects and Engineers of the University of Stuttgart, Germany were inspired by flying beetles known as elytra and they developed a mashine which works like an insect and creates these insect like strings ans structures. The idea behind it was to create a light and still strong material for future house building and other construction material solutions. This is what happens when German Engineering meets Art. I really love the composition and look of this engineering masterpiece. When you are in town – pop by and take a closer look at this interesting project.

This installation will be displayed until sunday the 6th of september.

By the way – most of the V&A’s art exhibitions are free of charge – so is this one. thumb_DSC_0074_1024thumb_DSC_0066_1024
