Little Pig #3 is making Art!
The big bad wolf won't blow this down. This amazing brick sculpture at Pike Street between Division Street and East Broadway, was built by a pig robot. Developed by Swiss architects Gramazio & Kohler, Architecture and Digital Fabrication, ETH Zurich , in conjunction with NYC Department of Transportation’s Urban Art Program, Storefront for Art and Architecture has created the first architecture project to be digitally fabricated on site, brick by brick, at 1:1 scale. Once the Truck sized robot departed, it left a beautiful undulating sculpture, composed of thousands of bricks. On one of the days I passed it by, Kurt just had to photograph it with his new LEGO Digital Camera. Brick to brick, a siren call?
