Ron Rael’s work with cement and other materials

 

I had the opportunity to meet Ron Rael of UC Berkley this weekend.  He is working on an exhibition of sculptural models that are all printed in alternative materials (primarily cement).   They are amazing, undulations of form that really emphasize the breakdown in barrier of shape that this technology allows.  The sheer scale of the individual parts is also impressive (the form in the picture below is probably at least 24″ tall).  When you add in the concept of printing these as multistory buildings, his long range goal, they are mindbending. 

If you are anywhere near UC Berkley this next month, you should really consider visiting this exhibition.  There is an opening reception Wednesday October 6, 2010 and the exhibit runs through November 11, 2010.  (link to exhibition information:  http://arch.ced.berkeley.edu/events/exhibitions)
