Body Park is an experimental prototype created with a group of graduate students during a Fulbright Fellowship at the Universidad Tecnica Federico Santa Maria in Valparraiso, Chile. The structure explores weaving and lamination techniques in thin wood veneers. The material characteristics of wood [tension, compression, torsion, flexure] were explored and exploited in the development of a flexible structural module which was used in the design of a 'Body-Land-Scape' were ground and body are symbiotically bound.
