Louie

Louie, Casa Italia, Italian Olympic Pavilion, Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, August 2016

Louie celebrates innovation, design and architectural history. Inspired by Nosanchuk’s love of late 20th century American architecture, Louie is born from a 3D scan of the Facade of the Bayard Condict Building, Louis Sullivan’s (father of modern architecture and known for his words “form follows function”) first skyscraper and only NYC work. Selecting a scanned element from the building façade, the scanning map was converted into a printable tracery that was a form and a skin, illuminated from within from hidden LEDs.
