The first event of its kind, ‘The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt’ aimed to raise vital funds for charities Action for Children and Elephant Family, inviting tourists, locals and visitors to join in a truly magical experience. Constructed from less than 1kilogram of plastic, Fragile explores the delicate and the impossible. The project is inspired by the convergence between nature and technology which challenges the aesthetics and constructive methods of human structures and objects. Fragile is the result, a combination of biological minimalism inspired by natures structural efficiency and the fabrication of the impossible through the use of new Additive Layer Manufacturing processes which produce pieces of incredible complexity and detail that would be virtually impossible otherwise. Constructed at DMC London, The Bartlett School of Architecture.   see press release   watch video   Design: ALEKSA studio, Richard Beckett & Sarat Babu Client: Faberge Location: London Dates: 2012 Construction value: £3.5k
