The WOW!house’s facade has been created by cutting-edge architectural practice Mamou-Mani and its fabrication facility FabPub. The geometric, circular mandalas that adorn the entrance create an ephemeral wall of light and shadow: the pattern was generated parametrically, each mandala was then 3D-printed in bioplastic, made from mix of fermented sugar and wood. The facade is designed not only to WOW visitors as they arrive, but also as a beautiful symbol of the circular economy.
