Given the specific edge conditions and water channeling requirements, our main objectives for this exercise were to respect these conditions while creating a decentralized tile pattern that would break the tile boundaries to create a carpet effect. The twisting transforms lines into curves, these would continue across adjacent tiles to ensure the “carpet effect”. The [...]

Acts on Tracks

Catenary curve is the curve that an idealized hanging chain or cable assumes under its own weight when supported only at its ends. While freely hanging catenaries have more often than not elastic physical properties, we decided to explore the abilities of fiberglass rods acting as catenary arches, partially mimicking Gaudi’s research. Fiberglass rods, despite their small cross-sectional diameter, [...]
