Fingers Crossed - Arup

Garcia Milla-Leon Arquitectos as Architects

London Design Festival 2014, Jose Garcia part of the team who develop this awsome project. Fingers Crossed installation in progress - Fingers Crossed is a form-active structure designed by the Emergent Technologies and Design Programme (Emtech) in collaboration with Arup, TRADA, and Hanson Plywood for the London Design Festival 2014, hosted at Arup’s No. 8 Fitzroy Street offices. Built from 9 mm birch plywood and relying solely on friction, rather than metal connections, as a joining solution, Fingers Crossed both exploits and celebrates the material behaviour of wood. The project, initiated as a collaboration between students of architecture, professional engineers and the UK’s leading timber authority, seeks to express the bending capacity and joinery possibilities that timber provides by integrating structural and spatial performance into one elegant architectural solution.
