Modeling Responsive Panel Bending: pt2

I applied the same methodology used in part 1, modeling the bending of a single panel face, to an entire panelized surface as a form-finding exercise. Given various bending degrees the surface begins to deform more drastically. The coloration of the panels are indicative of the deflection ¬†from the original surface position.  

Modeling Responsive Panel Bending: pt1

I am continuing some research I did last semester on timber and its ability to act as a moisture buffer and its behavior when exposed to varying levels of moisture in the air. The hope is to work this into our studio project this semester, which is located off of Elliott Bay in Seattle. The […]
