Can it be movable? Screens? How does it ‘open’?

What is the corner/roof condition? How does it transition?

Structurally.  Joint vs Geometry?

  1. absorb, reflect, transmit, how do these conditions of the affect of light relate to social conditions? they can, im looking for the literal association.
    we spoke in class about choosing the variable. also think that the sun / light is tracking and you could create artificial light. a variable could also be the position of people causing more or less light.
    i know i say to limit variable. i am pointing these out as options to consider.
    still i would explore the size of the opening- more importantly how to vary the light. it could even be a variety of text differences etches into the side that reflects the light. and then enamel paint it.
    i also know that you are grouping with Haley and they may shift some things.
    some time on the connection could help, thinking of it vertically, and also Hajo’s good comment about structure. these limits could help things.
    i think you are on track. try to carve out some time for some grasshopper as i can see it helping you and Haley. otherwise i think you mostly need time to work through design. A small physical model would help and the 1:1 with a simple/cheap material such as foam core would help explore the variables. maybe the position of food and or people drives the lighting and constructive variables. maybe test a point attractor (where people stand or site) to adjust an angle, a thickness, a degree of reflectivity (fritting or surfacing dimples to reduce reflectivity). maybe the folding is more shallow?
    you are on a good track. trust your instinct and drive forward.
    what is your overall form? site section, etc? think of this to give yourself a framework. its may help.

  2. the folded paper is intriguing.
    i can see them as your system if you see your last image here ‘unit detail+joint detail’ as the paper model, and the variable is the position of the crease. im not sure how this reflects light- im sure it can, ie see the BMW design that started to use the crease some years ago- maybe: http://www.bmw.com/com/en/insights/bmw_design/features.html
    see where it says ‘The Crease Line.’ its a visual affect. if you had a series of these it might do a lighting thing. you could also cut the material on the top or bottom of the crease, just a sliver. it could be very interesting. do it out of wood veneer? i thought i saw precedents today (Menges) of twisting and creasing veneer wood.
