Curved Folding Assembly
Georgia Tech, Studio II
Instructor: Michelle Rinehart
How can subtractive operations unveil structural solutions?
A deep slice divides. A shallow slice creates. Variations of cutting and scoring 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.

Parametric script is developed based on physical prototype feedback
