"I'm fascinated by the possibilities for architecture to incorporate artworks inspired by the human figure."
He is now exploring new 2-D/3-D concepts created with parametric design software, and the possibilities of combining digital cutting and hand-finishing.
Richard is currently experimenting with using parametric 3-D design software to create adaptable, geometric designs with the potential for customisation by digital processes or hand-finishing.
Above: based on the geometry of an icosahedron, this design is made by interlocking six simple angled sections to create a base unit.
Below: one of the many possible arrangements for base units - and how it might look customised with Richard's figurative imagery.
Below: Examples of potential customisation using 3-D printing, CNC cutting and laser cutting.
