Curved Folding Assembly

How can subtractive operations unveil alternative structural solutions?


A deep slice divides. A shallow slice creates. These variations in conjunction allow planar materials to be reconstituted into a structurally robust kit-of-parts. 

Module Aggregation: Curved folded struts with surface to surface tab connections

3D Printed Model of Script Applied to Site Constraints
As a system, the structure was designed to be dynamic in its homogeneity. Each module is the result of the same set of operations, parametrically adapted to produce a specific geometry in aggregation.
