 Hand In Hand, Tower “The process began with a Spiral as our inspiration. We wanted to explore the potential of the material to its maximum threshold; hence the Spiral was the best fit for our endeavor.

Turning Torso

The design of our tower was driven by several criteria: || maximization of material usage || repetition of a single member || achieving of several possible configurations As a result of a successful implementation of the first and the second criteria, we were able to make use of 97% of the available material, consequently reaching [...]

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. [...]

Light is more

First Digital Fabrication Exercise is concluded. The school’s courtyard is now hosting the final towers made by laser cutting. Our final result is a free-standing structure that looks back at the building rationality and simplicity to reach the top. The structure has been first thought as an assembly of X shaped pieces. These pieces has been then [...]

  Our main idea is to explore the potentiality and limitations that the material could achieve, through theoretical study and various practical tests. We enclose our research in 5 key points that have helped us to work with a scientific method through this research: 1. FLEXURE – TORSION 2. HEIGHT 3. TAPERING 4. STRIPES 5. ZIPPER [...]
