Inspired by energy in water — the Lakhta Tower’s form is derived from the changing shape, light and texture of the River Neva. The five-sided tower twists as it rises to delicately touch the sky. This model was printed by our new 3D printer, taking 24 hours to complete. Find out more about this project on the Lakhta Tower project page.
Completed in 2013, the model of the Solar Innovation Centre has been exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy Open Exhibition in 2014, where it was awarded the architecture prize for ‘Outstanding Work.’ Designer, Sarah Kettle, built two editions of the model and these now reside in Kettle Collective’s studios in Edinburgh and Dubai. The mixed-media model is predominantly made from a paper-thin plastic material. Share this page:
