Rock Paper CNC

Pavilion designed and built for the CHART art fair 2019

Rock Paper CNC is an entry for the CHART art fair architecture competition 2019. The art fair takes place at Charlottenborg in Copenhagen every year, and the courtyard acts as a stage for a small architectural competition for architecture students and newly graduated architects. Out of more than 50 applications this project was selected along with 4 others to particpate in the competition.

The  building blocks, which gives the stone-like structure Rock Paper CNC its appearance, are made individually by hand from recycled paper in CNC-cut moulds. By combining traditional craftsmanship and new digital means the architectural form demonstrates how waste can be revitalised as a raw material.

The project was designed and built by Diana Smiljkovic, Gustav Kjær Vad Nielsen, Oskar Koliander, Haris Hasanbegovic and Jonas Lillesø Bentzen.
