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 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!

Rising Waves

The central theme of the project was to create a structure that arose from a flat plane into a three-dimensional object while challenging the properties of the materials used. The uniqueness of the structure lies in the individual strips that lift from the flat surface, requiring no joints hence forming smooth curves.

  Each element in this design is a rectangular wood strip of the same length. The width of the strips begins at 4cm and decreases gradually as the structure continues up. Structurally, the tower is organized in two perpendicular axes, crossing at a central datum. In both axes, the strips bend in an alternating pattern [...]

El Diamante

The assignment was to build a tower, tall, freestanding, with no extra elements, using four 840x400mm 3mm thick Plywood sheets. The initial thought process was to achieve height by eliminating vertical elements and reducing the amount of wastage of material. To create stabilitiy and variation a “RING MODULE” with 5 nodal points was designed which [...]
