final diagramGiven 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 edges are lofted towards the center having a gentle slope channeling water towards the tile’s extremities and out along the joints.

The Sliding Joints !


         to blog




 Group 1 attempted to create a combination between dynamic and fixed joints to create a zipper like joints that moves on a horizontal axis . With this movement of the joints , the tension fiberglass cables changes in form to create alternation of forms and directions . 4 different Kind of logic in Joints  created to gain more  flexibility in movement on all dimensions .

Digital Crown

The structure is a simple constructive assembly system that allows us to experiment in a single object multiple and different types of joints and their possible variations/combinations that became our primary research, seeking to minimise waste.

The pentagonal footprint force us to generate horizontal elements that are connected by various elements in the vertical direction. The combination of both, horizontal and vertical parts is what generates height increase and stabilisation of the system when connected.

We also explored the void as an integral element in our structure, which reduces weight and helps with the distribution of the different parts to achieve an effective balance in our structure.

The result is, when unassembled; a compact structure system, easy to pack and transport,  extremely easy and quick to assemble based on the interlocking, bending, sectioning and clipping joints experimented and tested in different models and digital joinery. When assembled, is also stable and can be manipulated without the risk to be destroy.
