Needs More Blobwall: Greg Lynn's Recycled Toy Furniture Somehow Wins Venice Biennale

Huh? CAD monkey/architect Greg Lynn's Recycled Toy Furniture won an award at the Venice Biennale [not the real Biennale, the architecture one, but still], despite the fact that the only "furniture" aspect is the tacked on tabletops; giant plastic eggplants are not toys; and hello! Recycled? That stuff went straight from the injection molding factory to Lynn's workshop.

Still, it's a sign of Lynn's confidence and integrity that he will not just admit but embrace the fact that his most meticulously algorithmic architectural innovations--like, say, the Blobwall interlocking architecture system he debuted last year in Miami Art Basel--can be readily achieved with a heat gun, an electric knife, and a trip to Wal-Mart.
