On Saturday, October 19th, SOM's Stereoform Slab will be open as a pop-up location for Open House Chicago. Stereoform Slab replicates and abstracts a single-story concrete bay found in high-rise construction to create a simple architectural expression. Removed from its typical context, the structure exemplifies how digital fabrication can be leveraged in the building industry.
The pavilion was designed by SOM’s interdisciplinary research team, and realized through industry partnerships with leading organizations including McHugh Construction, real estate investment and development firm Sterling Bay, Denmark-based Odico Construction Robotics, and Autodesk, an innovator in generative design implementation.
The exhibition will take place in lieu of SOM Chicago's office tour because of renovations.
