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 aim of the exercise was to create a dynamic form with minimal number of simple joints. A dynamic structure was designed with only three types of 3D printed joints ie; 1) roller-joints 2) sliders and 3) and perforated ring. The whole structure was made to take advantage of the bending properties of the fiber rod. Read More »

The exercise was to design a vertical structure consisting of different kinds of connections with wood material. Our goal was to use the necessary number of vertical joints that accentuate the curvy figure of our structure… and of course, aim higher!
