Hansmeyer’s Subdivided Columns

In ancient times we already knew columns; the greek did it, the romans did it and even today we use these forms in many ways in our architecture. Michael Hansmeyer thought it was time for columns 4.0 (as I like to call it). Subdivided Columns.

Inspired by an abstracted doric form of columns, the process of creation started. Build of superthin sheets of cardboard these incredible detailed and embellished artworks were produced.
Resulting in a a series of columns that exhibit both highly specific local conditions as well as an overall coherency and continuity. The ornament is in a continuous flow, yet it consists of very distinct local formations. The complexity of a column contrasts with the simplicity of its generative process.
