I'm sort of obsessed with non-destructive construction aesthetic. No nails, no glues, everything connected with bolts and clamps and joinery, no wire ever laid in a place you wont be able to reach later, nothing permanent, everything renegotiable.

Follow these principles and experimentation will have no material costs.

I don't know how practical it is, but I was raised on Lego and Data and an edict of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and so I do not know if I can live well any other way, I just need it

@faun you should meet Mikey and Rongamai (who is using a robot arm to make Gridbeam at Hackland, Auckland) if you don't know them already.

@faun is it 3d or a photo? How big is that chair? Love the idea!

@nuagezero It's a photo of Gridbeam!

It is my opinion that every family should have a big pile of gridbeam, but it is not produced in enough places just now.
