"Lace has many associations within different cultures. There are works that refer to these two opposites; the light and the dark. The threads within lace connect one decorative element with another to form a network"
"Lace networks can be both complete - as with a finished worl, but also have the possibility to make continuous connections. They can spread like a virus, surrounding but not enclosing space, forming boundaries and allowing access through."

|Atelier Manferdini; Inverted Crystal Cathedral - Designed using engineering platform ROBOT, assemblage 40 000 crystals, 1000 strands of steel cable|
" Inverted Crystal Cathedral explores the structural behaviour of networks hung in space. The weight of the crystals pulled by the force of gravity determines the path and distribution of each cable"
"1000 strands constitute the vaulted surface of the Inverted Crystal Cathedral. Walking in the gallery, the viewer can appreciate the detail of each crystal and how they constitute to the overall form "
