    Brooklyn-based designer Marc Fornes is one of the leading figures in the development of computational protocols applied to the field of design and fabrication. He has designed and built an extensive body of large scale prototypical installations that have been exhibited internationally, including at the Guggenheim, New York, the Centre Georges Pompidou, and the Architecture Biennale in Beijing, China. Fornes founded a recurring graduate studio at Columbia University, New York, and has since taught at the University of Michigan and at Harvard Graduate School of Design. This extraordinarily sculptural screen involves fifteen 4 x 8 foot CNC cut sheets of aluminum, which have been CNC drilled with a total of 21,788 holes. After manufacture, the drilled sheets are flat-packed, and require one week of assembly using 10,894 aluminum pop rivets.
