Design: Large-scale "biological architecture" projects by Kendall Buster

I was inspired by these beautiful sculptures from Kendall Buster. She builds them using industrial materials such as semi-transparent shade cloth, sheets of opal translucent honeycomb panels, etc. The artist earned a BFA degree from the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington DC and an MFA in Sculpture from Yale University. She also participated in the Whitney Museum’s Independent Study Studio Program in New York City. Her large-scale “biological architecture” projects have been exhibited in numerous venues nationally and internationally. I invite you to visit Buster’s website to see more of her amazing work.
