Metamorphosis or Confrontation

Tobias Klein

A close look at the work of innovative artist and architect Tobias Klein.

Contemporary German architect Tobias Klein often explores applications of 3D printing in architecture, art, design, and interactive media installations in his work in order to create a fusion of contemporary computer-aided design and manufacturing technologies built from natural materials, found objects, and cultural-historical references. Through his work, Klein has developed the emerging discipline of Digital Craftsmanship as an operational synthesis between digital and physical tools and techniques. This publication traces Klein’s work over the past decade, as each chapter unravels the relationship and evolution of the artist’s body of work.
