Looped Frames

Our aim was to create a minimal, wired framed structure comprised of individual components. These components where notched together in order to form a unified staircase.In order to ensure structural stability, the form was first physically tested. The structure was firstly laminated with a single layer of plastic and aluminium tape. When realising the materials rigidity, [...]

Structural folds

In order to study and understand this notion of a self-supporting structure, a number of tests where conducted. These experimental forms where all constructed by folding a single piece of paper. By repeating this action and directing the folds in contrasting angles, we discovered the parameters for component behaviour. Due to the orientation of the [...]
