In front of the prestigious MAXXI Museum in Rome rises an artful structure that attracts attention with its unusual shape and bright blue colour. It is a collaboration between the Block Research Group of ETH Zürich and TU Delft. The pavilion is shaped with a unique knitting work Mariana Popescu created using an algorithm and a Steiger knitting machine. With this, she demonstrates that it is possible to make efficient structures with very little building material, which also reduces CO2 emissions. Hardly any formwork is needed, resulting in virtually no construction waste.
