The Carpet Makers, A Carpet Maker’s Tower by Abbas Akbarally - Univesity of Greenwich UNIT 2

Tumblr blog, at http://abbasakbarally.tumblr.com/

 The project explores the construction of an imaginary archetypal society and was inspired by the book “The Carpet Makers” by Andreas Eschbach in which the community of carpet makers devote their entire lives to knotting a single carpet, using their daughters and wives’ hair.This hand-drawn elevation is a capsule tower in construction, where the Carpet Makers knot directly onto the knotting frames that are attached to the façade of the building. The daughters and wives spend their time expanding the tower out of bamboo and cut stone.
