title TetraScript: Development of an Integrated System Capable of Optimizing Light in a Circumscribed Space

summary The purpose of this research is to develop a process capable of optimizing the capture of light in a circumscribed space, using a responsive system of skylights. Research is focused on the design of irregular dome-like pavilion spaces circumscribed by curved surfaces, but the envisioned process might be applied to other functional, formal, and spatial typologies. The design of the pavilion starts with the generation of a surface, later tessellated into a matrix of skylights depending on the geographic location and sun orientation. In the constructed pavilion, the skylights react to the variation of daylight intensity during the day to satisfy specified internal lighting needs. Simultaneously, the integration of conception and fabrication using digital tools (CAD-CAM) facilitates the construction of a non-standard, parametric geometry, thereby diminishing the costs of production and allowing for personalization, while assuring global sustainability.

title TetraScript: Sistema integrado para optimizar a iluminação natural num espaço circunscrito [TetraScript: An Integrated System to Maximize the Natural Light in a Confined Space]

summary The purpose of this research is to develop a process capable of optimizing the capture of light in a circumscribed space, using a responsive system of skylights. Research is focused on the design of irregular dome-like pavilion spaces but the envisioned process might be applied to other functional, formal, and spatial typologies. A process based on scripting generates a matrix of components based on geographic situation, and sun orientation. The integration of conception and fabrication with digital tools (CAD-CAM) enabled the construction of this non standard, parametric geometry, diminishing the costs of production, allowing personalization and assuring global sustainability.
