Twisted Sister

The concept for this tower arose from the vertical aggregation of identical pyramidal components at decreasing scales. The component itself was developed through the distortion of simple geometries to find opportunities for self-replication without the use of additional components. The slight distortion of the resulting pyramidal form creates multi-planar vertices that can be utilized for [...]

Using 3mm plywood, Scratch was born.  Scratch is a modular joint that can be connected in 4 places in order to create an infinite amount of unique shapes, towers, and sculptures.  Aesthetics, joint optimization, material distribution, height and waste optimization drove our design and it evolved from a pentagonal tower of triangles connected by joints [...]

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 [...]

Triagon- Digital Fabrication Laser Cutter

Triagon is a combination of triangles and a penthagons coexisting in the same structure. The goal of this first Digital Fabrication project was to build a tower out of 4 board of 3mm plywood while exploring the properties of the material and to acquaint ourselves with laser cutting. The Triagon stands 2.7m tall. The structure [...]
