title Parametric Folds: Using the Elasticity of Polymers For a Light Weight Structure
source Achten, Henri; Pavlicek, Jiri; Hulin, Jaroslav; Matejovska, Dana (eds.), Digital Physicality - Proceedings of the 30th eCAADe Conference - Volume 2 / ISBN 978-9-4912070-3-7, Czech Technical University in Prague, Faculty of Architecture (Czech Republic) 12-14 September 2012, pp. 181-189
summary This project takes advantage of a dynamic structural quality found in high-density polymers in the development of a self-supporting lightweight structural envelope for the Nuit Blanche pavilion. The pavilion was developed to display a series of interactive art projects as part of the annual Nuit Blanche Festival in Paris. The project combines concepts from biology with digital design and fabrication methods to speculate on a new relation between structure, geometry, material and appearance. Before discussing the design research of the pavilion the paper will elaborate on our larger research goals in using digital technology to promote more environmentally responsible construction methods and the research values of projects at the scale of a pavilion.
