Prototype is a full-scale variant of a plywood structure that will be adapted for diverse functions, ranging from a house in the tropics to a movie theater in an urban park. Made in Pardo’s studio, this kit capitalizes on the potential of computer-based technologies to introduce an economic vocabulary based on irregular geometric forms and tensile structural systems.
