Materialized Pattern

Materialized Pattern

This project was my 1st workshop project during DRL.
Lead by Alica Andrasec & Yusuke Obuchi.
Team member with Nahed and Jaime.
The workshop limited us with one constraint which is only using flat-sheet material – tipically paper.
By applying simple action to these materials, such as cutting or folding, it gains 3 dimentional qualities such as gaining stiffness etc..
Our team has found a way of cutting papers into strips and stick each of them incrementaly with sertain angle. When they are populated, they results in 3dimentional shell like shape.
After sereis of physical and digital experiments, we have found that the interval of strip sticking points and the sticking angles are actually the parameters to control the generated 3D shape.
During this workshop, we’ve learned the idea of how to learn an architectural or structural quality from a simple material behavior to a even more complicated natural phenominon and to translate them into our real world using digital tools as support.
