ICD/ ITKE PAVILION 2014-2015
ICD/ITKE RESEARCH PAVILION ‘14/’15
Tutors: Prof. A. Menges, L. Vasey, M. Prado, M. Dorselman, B. Felbrich
Collaborators: Itech Studio 2014-2015
This research pavilion robotically extrudes and lays carbon fiber on an inflated membrane. Using the biomemitic role model of a water spider, it looks at the investigation of new design methodologies and fabrication strategies of a carbon fiber structure. The purpose of this pavilion is part of ongoing design research at the ICD to situate robots within a full-scale architectural context.
This pavilion is a result of a design studio in 2014, and continued into 2015 as a seminar. My role in the fabrication process focused on design iterations for carbon fiber layout as well as base detailing and fabrication. After the design was finalized and production began, I took an active role in working with robotic control, simulation, and fabrication.
