Material and its Properties
Temp’L is designed from recycled steel parts from an old ship. It provokes thought about beauty in our time, coming from a recent past. The architectural section of the project is drawn through the process of cutting up the old ship. The section-cut has the necessary force for the sawing action, while opening and thus freeing the space contained in the volume of the ship.
