Part maquette, part installation in it's own right, this exhibition at the ICA furthered the development of the design for a unique building.

Factory Settings were asked to fabricate and install a steel framed structure to tolerances more commonly seen in digital manufacturing. The framework was required to match exactly the 100mm thick CNC cut burnt oak panels, manufactured in Norway. The framework and panels were to come together for the first time on site at the ICA in London.
