Within Texas there is an emerging network of companies, institutions, and individuals focusing on the exploration of parametric design and the digital production of building components. Specifically, there is a growing opportunity for collaborative exchange between the academic, technical, and professional communities by leveraging the immense resources found in some of the largest metropolitan centers across the United States.
This project is the result of a 5 week full scale exploration of a modular cast brick wall system. The design and fabrication solution addresses the following:
The goal of this project was to develop the digital and physical groundwork necessary to provide design guidelines for the production of a light screen used to modulate and regulate natural and artificial light. As a result of the conceptual investigation of repetitive systems, an evaluation of woven rope provided a wide variety of typologies for consideration. Issues of dynamic structural integration, oscillating surface geometry, and varying modular density were all present.
