Scale Model (1:20), MX3D Bridge

This is a Scale model (1:20).

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from MX3D as part of Joris Laarman Lab: Design in the Digital Age.

It is dated 2017. Its medium is 3d-printed plastic, silver paint.

This maquette is a scale representation of the bridge that is planned for Amsterdam. The Bridge's attenuated, swirling form will stand in contrast to the historical buildings surrounding the canal. The bridge illuminates not only the aesthetic freedom made possible by the remarkable MX3D process, but how this future technology connects with the city's past.
