This Art Installation Was Made Out of 8,080 Colored Pencils

The University of Minnesota School of Architecture celebrated their 100th anniversary in a unique way. The school, with assistance from their students, created an installation composed of 100 robotically-routed plywood ribs joined together with 8,080 colored #2 pencils, dubbed the Centennial Chromograph. The project is an exercise in data spatialization, which utilizes computational design tools to produce formal and spatial constructions with large quantities of data, meant to express the history of the school.
