The installation Formations, developed by Matias del Campo and Sandra Manninger specifically for the MAK Gallery in Vienna, is based on the mathematical concept of recursive geometric systems present in natural systems. These rigorous explorations conducted within the office with the goal to find novel opportunities for the articulation of architectural bodies based on selfsimilarity and continuous growth. The installation is not supposed to represent a metaphoric approach to natural phenomena, but is intended as a research setting for organic sensibilities and their affect on space. The rigoroulsy applied formula consists of two fundamental architectural qualities: Geometry and repetition. These two elements form the core of the design strategy.
