Wabi-Sabi™ is a Japanese philosophy often described as appreciating the beauty in imperfection. The sculpture aims to combine the traditional Japanese thinking with emerging technologies such as parametric modelling, and digital fabrication. Plywood that is 2mm thick is a material that is commonly used in construction sites. They are usually discarded after one use.

Wabi-Sabi™ attempts to look at discarded construction material in a new way, where the imperfections are embraced as parametric art.

Elvin is an architecture student from SUTD. His interest in architecture relates to parametric design and also rethinking how we can fuse the traditional with advanced technologies.
