summary Cast Thicket is a prototypical instillation that furthers earlier research into tensile concrete molds through the use of plastic formwork and a layered structural network. Leveraging the fluid materiality of concrete and the machinability of polypropylene, Cast Thicket creates a lacy network of thin members that disperse and coalesce to address structural and spatial needs. Proposed as an application for tall concrete buildings, the research responds to the 2012 APPLIED: Research through Fabrication competition.
