This project served as an investigation into the material properties of Aluminum and its flexibility when a composite is created using a DiBond panel system.  Utilizing advanced computer scripting techniques through Generative Components paired with Kangaroo a large-scale pavilion installation was designed, fabricated, and installed in the Pratt Higgins Hall Gallery. 

This project served as an investigation into the material properties of Aluminum and its flexibility when a composite is created using a DiBond panel system.  Utilizing advanced computer scripting techniques through Generative Components paired with Kangaroo a large-scale pavilion installation was designed, fabricated, and installed in the Pratt Higgins Hall Gallery. 

The proposed design is a multipurpose surface, which deals with the ideas of human form, enclosure, as well as the filtration of light and air.  The design allocated maximum flexibility in both the vertical and horizontal axis.  The interior cut-aways were dual functioning in the providing of accordion-like flexibility across the grid of panels and creating varied openings which permitted the passage of light.

The faceted wall reaches upward and outward to extend overhead and become both wall and ceiling-enclosure of the space.

This panelized system was designed with the relaxed human form in mind; areas were created which encourage human relaxation, whether in the leaned or seated position. These areas of the surface create a moment of pause for the patrons to slow and experience the space. Users are the more apt to leisurely travel through and contemplate the material and spatial composition developed through the folds. Thus, the material becomes less of a surface and more a usable experiential space.

  The panels were fastened together with strategically designed 2" tabs that allowed for a secure riveted connection without compromising the flexibility of the panelized surface.
