out there: architecture beyond building

Blobwall pavilion is a collaboration between greg lynn form, machineous who developed the manufacturing method for the 'bricks' and panelite who produced and distributed the architectural material. it is an innovative redefinition of the brick – architecture’s most basic building unit – into a lightweight object made of colorful plastic and reinterpreted into modular elements. blobwall pavilion is a freestanding, indoor/outdoor wall system built of a low-density, recyclable, impact-resistant polymer. the blob unit, or 'brick,' is a robotically cut mass-produced hollow tri-lobed shape formed through rotational molding, which is then assembled with interlocking precision to form the wall.
