banana2 580x375 Enormous Cardboard Banana

Starting with a photo of a flattened banana peel, Cologne Institute for Architectural Design students Marc Over and Moritz Winkler created an enormous cardboard banana using Rhino for drafting and a Leica cutting plotter. When they finished assembling the oversized fruit, the pair recruited some of their fellow classmates to help install it on the roof of a Cologne University building. It was created for a course that focused the analysis and reconstruction of surfaces taught by Oliver Fritz and Hans Sachs. I don’t know about you, but I think it kind of looks like bait for King Kong.
