The Nobel Palace is to me the crown achievement of the Swedish architect Ferdinand Boberg's life's work. Even though it was never realised it is my strong belief that the building would have made the perfect Finale to one of Stockholm's grandest boulevards, Strandvägen.
My wish is to give an example in order to make people realise what can be made in the future using moden technology.
I am raising funds in order to pay for the 3D-printing of an architectural model which will cost approximately SEK 10 000 to produce (printing and building material).
The work of reconstructing Boberg's first proposal will run throughout my final semester at The Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. By the end of the semester I will present a detailed 3D-printed model in 1:100 scale.
Having made two initial volume studies comparing scale and proportions I have concluded to continue my work focusing on the first proposal, even though the second proposal also appeal to my liking a great deal.
Using 3D-printing I aim to achieve my goal. This modern technology is a fast-developing science with great potential in various areas spanning from cellular biology to building and construction.
I have previously tested 3D-printing making buildings of my own design.
To me 3D-printing is the future of architecture. By using 3D-printing great results can be achieved by testing one's ideas. In the long-run I believe that entire buildings will be constructed using 3D-printers at 1:1 scale.
I am eager to explore the possibilities of this technology and I am very grateful for your support!
