Architect Greg Lynn [2] may be best know as the king of ‘Blobitecture’ [2] – creating blobby biomorphic structures [2] using computer-aided-design and mathematical equations. Now the blob-loving architect is taking a turn for the green with an interesting new project to turn recycled old toys into high-end, artistic pieces of furniture [3]. Recently winning a Venice Biennale Golden Lion [4] for this work, Lynn uses the same method of algorithmic design that punctuates all of his work to piece recycled toys together into works of art.
