After speaking at Marmomacc’s
Designing with Stone in 2008, Copeland was invited by the stone company Henraux SpA to collaborate on the design of an exhibition
pavilion with Turan Duda (a close friend, and former colleague at Cesar Pelli & Associates).
Flexible Hybrid Pavilion Design, 2009
Flexible Hybrid Wall Screen, 2010
Henraux was invited to participate in Marmomacc Meets Design because
of the historic advancements it continues to make in stone technologies and the stone arts – particularly in the fabrications
of monumental sculptures for Henry Moore, Isamu Noguchi and Tony Cragg.
Flexible Hybrid Stone Panel Design and Fabrication,
and Duda’s goal in designing stone as “Hybrid + Flexible” was to demonstrate new ways of approaching and
understanding stone’s potential within today’s industrial toolbox, and to inspire future experiments to address
the question, “How can mass production, made possible by technology, be utilized with hybrid materials and systems,
to create infinitely unique forms and architectonic relationships?”
