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).

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.

Copeland 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?”
