Gorgeous baroque 3D-printed room designed by computers

Digital Grotesque aims to defy architectural conventions with an elaborate, 3D-printed grotto designed almost entirely by algorithms.A 3D-printed house is yet to be realised, but Swiss architects Michael Hansmeyer and Benjamin Dillenburger at this point are doing something a little more on the conceptual side. In a project titled Digital Grotesque, they have engaged in what they're calling "computational architecture" by programming algorithms that can design deeply elaborate structures.The resultant grotto contains more than 260 million surfaces, generated with 3D modelling software in a process inspired by cell division."At a basic level, the
