Introduction: Mutant Baby # 01: Scorpion House

Picture of Mutant Baby # 01: Scorpion House
Series Of Massive attack project "Extravaganza"
An experimentation of the horrific aesthetic.

The project is an experimentation of using the horrific aesthetic in excessive way in the architectural building. And its the first version of series called "Mutant Baby", which is a thesis of massive attack project "Extravaganza". The thesis will focused and investigated, essentially, how that New Horrific Aesthetic will change the Paradigm of Metropolitan Behaviour. By using the Advanced Computer Technology to explore the limits of architecture, and the create a scenarios of where architecture can go if driven by these ideas.
To investigate architecture beyond forms which aims to present an updated view of Computation and Digital research in architecture, because design was no longer concerned with presentation but rather with Calculation and Computation which would profoundly affect architecture production methods.
I try to develop innovative and unusual solutions to problematic of location, connection, dislocation, and disconnection, re-working the tension between the building as a Hyper Generic Spaces and as a specific environment.

The model is not that of transparency and structure but rather one of cuts, inserts, nip and tuck, like a horror films, the hand of a plastic surgeon that manipulates matter. The Horrific transmutations of bodies and faces becomes the material organizations and design expertise. These mutations have the capacity to create Bi-Products, Emerging Aesthetics and Paradigms.

Architecture has been operating of classical paradigms of Beauty & Production, within the last 20 years new techniques and technologies crated a new frame of aesthetic conditions that has not been critically re-configured, the thesis will attempt to produce a series of definitions regarding this issues.

The model is 3d computerized-made by 3ds Max + Grasshopper with final-touch by Z brush

Its 3d printing machine that printed it. The size of machine is 30*30*30 cm, so I tried to use the max size to print it 30*10*15 cm.
The material that was available was Strong White Plastic. It is a popular material for use with 3D printing services. This material is inexpensive compared to other materials so it's a good choice when you are starting out and want to prototype 3D objects or try out different designs. Strong plastic is flexible and strong and much more tolerant material that others of details in 3D printing design - another reason why it's good to start with. You'll see the terms Polyamide,nylon and PA 2200 used to describe strong plastic materials. This material is usually available in white and a small choice of strong colors which are applied as dyes. The powder is printed in layers and a laser melts the plastic and bonds it together to form the object. White plastic is somewhat porous and it can go yellow with exposure to the sun.

What brand of 3D printer was it, or did you build one from scratch? And have you ever hear of an Arcology?

Dear Ms. Hound,
Thanks alot for your kind interest. I highly appreciate it.
Regarding what you mention, the 3d printer er not so much new, and the brand for it, as I remember, it was "Concept Laser M2 Cusing-maskin".
Thanks for the new information, actually I not hear about it before, and I tried to read about it and its very fascinating, please if there are any informations that can help; it will be our great pleasure.
Thanks again, wishing to you all the best, and my great pleasure to hear your news always.

Kind regards,

Oh, it looks like you stripped the flesh off something that was already scary.

How big is it? How did you model it? What printer did you use, what material?

Dear Mr. Kiteman,
Thanks alot for your kind interest. I highly appreciate it.
Its my great pleasure to hear that it gives a sense of horrific :)
