Seoul-based design firm SWNA has recently experimented with digital fabrication and 3D printing to create a work entitled “The Curtained Wall,” which depicts concrete as though it’s flowing in the wind.

The team designed the project for South Korea’s Gwangju Design Center.

Seoul-based design firm SWNA has recently experimented with digital fabrication and 3D printing to create a work entitled “The Curtained Wall,” which depicts concrete as though it’s flowing in the wind.

“The five The Curtained walls were virtually windy in 3D, capturing the curtains that were thrown on them by context,” SWNA said. “The design was transferred to digital modeling and structural research was conducted to stand on its own.”

In cooperation with Corona, two or more nozzles of the 3D printer were used to produce a stack by spraying different liquids through the nozzles, according to the company.

The design pleated the bottoms of the walls so that they could stand on their own but give the appearance of the windy curtain. SWNA added that, “The significance of the material and the possibility of concrete printing were tested.”
