The URBAN FURNITURE project by Katerina Mouskou
Over the past years, the strides made in the development of computational design and construction has given us the unique ability for the creation and nurturing of new ideas and the rethinking of old ones in a new context which in turn has helped in both the increase and optimization of efficiency. The technology for high precision cutting of metals with laser beams is a major innovation for the Cypriot industry and it allows for the capability of realizing ideas for everyday tasks which was much more difficult or even impossible not long ago. The purpose of this competition is the development of ideas for the design and construction of a public display by using software for the design of 2-D or 3-D metal structures and the utilization of the laser cutting technology. The winning bid will be optimized and realized with the help of the team at Andreou Laser and will be placed in the area of McKenzie beach in the municipality of Larnaca.
