Modelling Care is an interactive experience to take as part of the London Festival of Architecture, running throughout June 2021. By engaging with a series of questions below, you will create your own unique shape – a figurative representation of the LFA theme ‘Care’ – using engineering software and parametric modelling.
Please share your individual artwork through screenshots, by tagging @civicengineers #LFA2021 on Twitter and LinkedIn.
Civic Engineers will collate the images created to use as a final artwork. Your artwork will remain anonymous unless you tag Civic Engineers online.
In the embedded ShapeDiver window please select the answer for the below questions that most resonates with you. Following completion of the 7 answers select the apply settings button. This should provide you with your unique result.
