Installation at Form + Force 2019 in Barcelona, Spain

Posted by

In October 2019, my students and I exhibited our pavilion, “The Infinite Line”, at the International Association of Shell and Spatial Structures symposium in Barcelona, Spain (IASS 2019). Our lightweight, fiberglass structure grew out of investigations into design and fabrication built on wire-bending principles and explores active-bending structures, computation, and craft. In this computational design work, materiality and material behavior drive architectural form and structural morphology. This pavilion demonstrates a situated approach to the design of active-bending (bending-active) systems. The specific context explored here being cultural design practices, dancing sculptures, and the craft of wire-bending in the Trinidad Carnival. Our entire pavilion weighed less than 32kg (70lbs) and was transported in a drum case.
