3D Alphabets Cut Out of Styrofoam

When he was at Yale School of Architecture in 2002, John Caserta created a series of 3D alphabets cut out of styrofoam. A particular piece, like this "S" here, would have many sides with different letters on them!

cheer up! i think it looks an interesting piece, sure it may not directly relate to architecture but still relevant in other ways such as sculpture and also engraved type within buildings...

Is also very similar to the cover of Douglas Hofstadter book, Gödel, Escher, Bach: an Eternal Golden Braid.

So in the 6 years since, I wonder how many people approached John Caserta and asked him to design a building using 3D foam letters?

I'm guessing none. Another useless school project so far removed from real life you have to wonder where they find these teachers.
