Flotsam & Jetsam: Shop Architects
SHoP was given the 2016 Design Miami Visionary Award and invited to create an environment at the gateway to the 2016 fair. The installation, Flotsam & Jetsam, exists at the intersection of Miami's celebrated spirit of play, represented by a relocated landscape that mimics the beach, but also the city's emergent function as a center for creative visioning and technological discovery. SHoP brought in Branch Technology, which is working to make material printing viable as a full-scale, practical means of construction, and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), to provide a second printing technology that uses a biodegradable bamboo medium.
