title Acoustically Efficient Origami Based Partitions for Open Plan Spaces - Developing a Design Tool
source Thompson, Emine Mine (ed.), Fusion - Proceedings of the 32nd eCAADe Conference - Volume 1, Department of Architecture and Built Environment, Faculty of Engineering and Environment, Newcastle upon Tyne, England, UK, 10-12 September 2014, pp. 487-494
summary The paper investigates the management of acoustic and privacy problems in open-plan spaces through the implementation of lightweight architectural partitions developed by origami tessellations. Integrating knowledge from parametric modelling, acoustics and design for user needs, a design tool for acoustically efficient, flexible, interior partition systems is developed. The paper elaborates on three components of the design tool: form generation, acoustic performance and spatial performance. The form generation component employs parametric models of origami tessellations to generate the partition system. The acoustic performance component employs acoustic simulation and prediction to regulate the containing volume as well as the system's surface materials. The spatial performance component evaluates form and material through qualitative criteria for privacy and flexibility according to user needs.
