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]
source SIGraDi 2009 - Proceedings of the 13th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, Sao Paulo, Brazil, November 16-18, 2009
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.
