LUX NOVA

EASTON+COMBS as Architects

Polycarbonate is a featherweight, high-strength, sustainably manufactured, and fully recyclable material most commonly employed in building facades and room dividers. EASTON+COMBS proposed to exploit the structural potential of the material in LUX NOVA, building ultralight polycarbonate arches together into strong and stable yet transparent and dynamic forms. The multihued surface would spread overhead and thicken locally locally to provide multiple areas of use, both collective and intimate. LUX NOVA embodies a new approach to an underutilized material by uncovering its structural potential through architectural use.
